Wise Words: A Spark of Madness, Robin Williams

“You’re only given one little spark of madness.  You mustn’t lose it.”

- Robin Williams

Robin Williams

Yesterday I learned the sad news that Robin Williams had passed away.  He made me laugh so hard that I’d actually cry.  He was a true icon, a talent, and a man who will be remembered by so many for touching our lives in different ways.

This particular quote speaks to me more than any of the others.  Embrace your bit of madness.  Take it and run with it.  Hold on to it and the things that make yourself “you.”  Stay strong, be creative, let loose, be funny, and most of all don’t be afraid.  The funniest man in the world suffered from depression.  If you’re depressed, get help and if it doesn’t work the first time, continue to get help.  Everyone is fighting their own set of battles unbeknownst to others .  If you’re contemplating suicide, reach out to someone.  It’s not the only answer and you’re not alone.  Help is always on the way, you just need to seek it out.  Robin Williams, you will be missed.

Up and Running without Tennis Shoes

Wise words for today:  A can-do attitude can go a long way!

The Wise Brunette is back up and running after being down for several days.  I changed hosting companies for my blog and I managed to move the entire site myself with very limited assistance from the live chat guy.  There were only a few times that I wanted to bang my head against a wall or reach into cyberspace and shake WordPress.  The major hurdles:  my content showed up, but my images were lost along the way and I found out that none of the page links worked.  It’s ok though, because I fixed it!  Me!  I fixed it!  Man, that feels really good to say.  I’m a beginner when it comes to web design, coding, etc., but right now I feel like I’ve got my black belt.  Hello intermediate level!  Now, I’m off to go dance around my living room for awhile and celebrate.  Tomorrow I’ll be back with a brand new post.  It’s only been almost a month, right? ;)

 

Reflections and Sunsets

Just a little snap from yesterday as I enjoyed the sunset and the boys enjoyed the fishing.  The weather was perfect and my nose was buried in a book for a few hours.  Take some time to step outside, look around, and reflect this weekend.  Take a break from your busy life and take in the beauty of nature.   It just may change your attitude.
