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.
