Terry Crews is a hilarious actor, a vocal proponent of the #MeToo movement, and just an all-around special dude who’s too pure for this world and we don’t deserve him. He proved that once again when he posted his recently completed Star Wars Lego TIE Starfighter and used the opportunity to share a life lesson he learned during its construction. Frankly, it’s one we could all take to heart.
Crews posted with the Starfighter in a happy selfie for the social media site on Sunday. In his caption, he explained that while he had a ton of fun constructing the piece, doing so also gave him time to reflect on the importance of perseverance during the times you feel “broken.”
“ALL FINISHED! My @starwars @lego TIE/Ln Starfighter is complete! I had a blast creating this! LEGO teaches me a lot about life,” Crews wrote.
“I’ve learned that we human beings are like legos— just because you are in pieces, does that mean you are broken? NO. You sometimes just have to disassemble and put all the parts back right again— and that takes time, perseverance, and a ton of patience. But if you never quit, you will achieve your goal. Remember— YOU ARE NOT BROKEN, YOU ARE JUST NOT FINISHED. KEEP BUILDING!”
The message seems simple, but it’s an important one that fans truly took to heart. The comments came rolling in pretty much immediately, with many people congratulating him on finishing the Starfighter while thanking him for being so inspiring.
And it’s true—with all the negative things that are happening in the world on a daily basis, it can be difficult to remember your blessings and to find the strength to carry on when things get bleak. Crews may only have been building some Legos, but it’s clear the task meant so much more.
