Tracy Morgan has made tremendous strides in his recovery since the 2014 car accident where he suffered a traumatic brain injury. Just last month he was able to successfully host Saturday Night Live and will begin his next stand up tour Picking Up The Pieces in February.
In a new interview with Complex mag, the 47-year-old shared his experience with a higher power and how is life is forever changed after the accident.
When asked if the comedian has resumed life as normal, he responded:
“You’re never going to be normal after you go through something like that. You don’t die for a few weeks and then come back to normal, trust me. Something’s going to be missing, something’s going to be gained├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥you just got to live your life after that. But after surviving something like that, I’m probably never going to feel normal. I went to the other side. This is not something I’m making up. Do you know what God said to me? He said, “Your room ain’t ready. I still got something for you to do.” And here I am, doing an interview with you.”
Wow. What an incredible story.
So what does the 30 Rock alum have in store for the future? He said that he tries to live in the moment these days:
“I try not to do that. Just living my life, man. When the sun’s up, I try to get it on and poppin’. When the sun is up, I try to make it happen. That’s what I’m doing, whatever it is! I’m going to do it until I’m satisfied.”
We are so glad the funny man is back in action!
