Giving his Twitter followers something to think about, “Last Man Standing” star Tim Allen took to the social media platform on Wednesday (April 13th) to tweet about the meaning of the word “gratitude.”

“Gratitude is being thankful for where you are even if it’s not where you want to be,” Tim Allen declares in the tweet “Why is it so easy to forget to be grateful?”

Fans of Tim Allen spoke out about what they think gratitude really means to them. One fan shared, “The same thing it’s so easy for people to be mean [to] strangers. Not enough children are taught the basics. Say ‘Please,’ ‘Thank you,’ ‘Yes, sir,’ ‘Yes, ma’am,’ ‘No, thank you.’ Treat others how you want to be treated.”

Another fan of Tim Allen’s went on to add, “I’m sitting here wishing I had more [gratitude]. But I am very grateful for what I have. It’s enough. Sometimes I feel unworthy. Ungrateful. Unsure. But I try my best. I’m grateful for where I am. But I want more.”

Tim Allen Recently Spoke About How the COVID-19 Pandemic Mask Wearing Has ‘Deeply Affected” Comedy Shows 

During a recent interview with WPTV in West Palm Beach, Tim Allen spoke about how the COVID-19 pandemic has deeply affected comedy shows. This is due to the audience being forced to wear masks. “[It’s a] big difference for a comedian to hear that muffled laugh. It wasn’t satisfying because it seemed like people didn’t like it. ‘No,’ they said, ‘You got a standing ovation.’”

Tim Allen also described how performing comedy during the global health crisis is also a tightrope. “I have a family member that passed away. I have neighbors that have passed away. Then I’ve had hundreds of thousands of people, a lot of which I didn’t know that had [COVID-19] and didn’t know they had it. This [has] been very difficult navigation for a comedian.”

The “Last Man Standing” star also said that he printed out hats for a while that said “F-COVID” on them. “I was so angry with how it was separating my family that I was mad at this virus. Then some people at a local store said, ‘You think this is funny?’ And I had to say, I laugh sometimes. Because I have nothing else to give. Sometimes it’s not appropriate and that’s ok too.”

In regards to how the public is handling the COVID-19 pandemic these days, Tim Allen does say he feels that people are ready to move on from the health crisis. “Even though [the pandemic] may or may not be over, we’re over. We got it. We go to live our lives and move on.”

Tim Allen went on to add that with all due respect for those in pain and continuing to suffer from the COVID-19 virus, he does feel like it’s time to officially move on.
