“When God talks, you gotta listen,” he said. “I swear, life is funny, because some of the craziest things that happen to you end up being the things you needed most.”

“In this case, I honestly feel like God basically told me to sit down,” the 40-year-old continued. “When you’re moving too fast and you’re doing too much, sometimes you can’t see the things that you’re meant to see. But after my accident, I see things differently. I see life from a whole new perspective.

Hart continued: “My appreciation for life is through the roof. I’m thankful for my family, my friends. I’m thankful for the people that simply ride with me, have been with me, ’cause you stood by me. My fans — I’m thankful for all your love and support. So don’t take today for granted, ’cause tomorrow’s not promised.”
