Actor and comedian Kevin Hart survived a near-fatal car accident earlier this year and it’s safe to say, it changed his life for the better.
The 40-year-old was honored with a Hand and Footprint ceremony at the famed Chinese Theatre in Hollywood on Tuesday.
He then took to his Instagram page to share the momentous occasion with a lengthy heartfelt post.
“Words can’t explain my emotion right now...2019 has been a hell of a year for me. I appreciate the Ups & the downs...to be honest I appreciate the downs so much because they help build character. My appreciation for life is the highest that it’s ever been....I am forever a work in progress...I’m always looking for ways to improve or better myself...the best way to receive anything is to be willing to listen & accept or learn....I am all of the above. I am also thankful,” he wrote.
The star also mentioned and thanked God, a few close supporters, close family and friends whom he says he owes his career to and wouldn’t be where he is without them.
“I’m thankful for my family/friends/CoWorkers/Fans....Without you guys none of this would be possible. Thank you all so much. Mom I hope I am making you proud...Dad I love you...40 G’s you’re the best big brother on the planet....Niko you’re my everything...Kids I do it all for you....PCB you are my ride or dies.
