With 5 minutes left in the day (well, plus 3 hours for where Misha is), I realized that I sent well-wishes over Twitter, but I wanted to do something beyond 140 characters. Thanks to work, I haven’t had the time today before now.
So without further ado…
Isn’t it wonderful to think that 40 years ago, the world got a little bit weirder, and a little bit kinder, and nobody knew it at the time. That 40 years ago, events were set in motion catalyzing an effect for change that affect thousands of people across the world, filling them with the drive to be more creative and kinder than they’ve been before. And in the true spirit of Random Acts, it’s quite poetic. That one little act, the birth of Misha Collins, would affect so much positive change in the world. So for Misha’s birthday, keep that in mind: one random act CAN make a difference.
I’m so happy to know someone like Misha is out there in the world. I love him for his acts of kindness, and I love him for the infectious smile that can make me smile just by seeing it. I love him for the fun he brings to the world just as much as I love him for all his dorky (often failed) pranks against J2. He makes me laugh just as much as he makes me “WTF” and jokingly curse his name. I don’t love Misha because he’s oh so attractive. My love doesn’t stem solely from his brilliance as an actor.
What I love about Misha is that he facilitates opportunities for people to realize their own wonderful qualities and abilities. What I love about Misha is how he opens people’s eyes to the opportunities all around them; opportunities for art, for kindness, for courage. What I love MOST about Misha is that simply by being his weird, loveable, crazy self, he shows others that they can be unabashedly themselves, too.
I’m so happy someone like that is in the world.
Happy Birthday, Misha Collins. I hope you had a truly magical day, and that many more of them are to follow.
