A Positive Message In These Dark Times

We all know this past year has been a bleak one with people getting COVID-19 and dying, some famous ones too including recently Dawn Wells who played Mary Ann Summers on Gilligan’s Island, but within these dark times there can be rays of positivity, here is one such courtesy of one of my favorite actors

Sir Anthony Hopkins, famous for playing serial killer Dr. Hannibal Lecter in the Silence Of The Lambs films among many others has posted a Twitter video celebrating 45 years of sobriety, sending an uplifting message to fans.

Hopkins, 82, asked viewers to look forward to 2021 after “a tough year, full of grief and sadness for many, many, many people,” in the video posted Tuesday.

“Forty-five years ago today, I had a wake-up call. I was headed for disaster, I was drinking myself to death. I’m not preachy, but I got a message,”

“A little thought that said, ‘Do you want to live or die?’ And I said, ‘I want to live.’ And suddenly the relief came and my life has been amazing.”

Hopkins acknowledged that he also has difficult moments: “I have my off days and sometimes little bits of doubt and all that.”

And he called on people to stay positive: “All in all, I say hang in there. Today is the tomorrow you were so worried about yesterday. Young people, don’t give up. Just keep in there. Keep fighting. Be bold. Mighty forces will come to your aid. That’s sustained me through my life.”
