Mathison shared some positive affirmations with fans in a recent Instagram post, writing: “Look for the magic in every moment.❄️

“It has been easy to do while shooting this movie, working with incredible people in beautiful northern Ontario.
But when we’re faced with challenging days, it’s our mindset that can keep us happy and positive in the face of adversity.”

Mathison encouraged fans to have a positive mental attitude even on their worst days as it would help them get through adversity. Fans applauded Mathison for his inspirational words, with fellow GH co-star Marcus Coloma commenting “So true!!!” and 90210’s Jennie Garth penning “Looks soapy❄️😂”.
