"Each morning when I open my eyes, I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it" - Groucho Marx

Some people are being judgmental & rude in the unfortunate passing of the great Robin Williams and it's really upsetting how people can try to make themselves seem superior even in his and his family's pain.
Sometimes we take take and take and forget to refill, replace &/or replenish.. If there was a well full of water, and you were thirsty... You would most likely drink from this well everyday until the well ran dry, I mean what's the point in having access to all this water if we can't enjoy it right? ... No harm no foul... Or so we think. People do this with people too... I understand that sensation of being drained & pulled in every direction & left dry... I know many people who deal with that daily & I know of people who take selfishly daily too. To feel more lonely in a room full of people than when you're by yourself, no one understands this?
Robin Williams gave and gave and gave and when you're the life of the party, the one with that great warm & inviting smile and everyone expects for you to be the entertainment, who entertains him? Who replenishes his spirit and energy? Although many of us feel a certain way in regards to suicide and feel it's a very selfish act, whether it is or not, many people who do commit suicide are plagued with a very sad and hard mental illness they can't control. Fame, money, & fans doesn't equal complete bliss, peace & happiness. Don't be so quick to say he had it all.
Robin Williams made several statements and was quoted for years and if you read or listened to what he was consistent with, this poor man was sick for a long time and was honest about his depression and loneliness. Maybe his cries for help? We don't really know. Maybe he was as funny and genius in his talent and gave his all to his craft and us because that was when he felt loved and appreciated the most or not alone. I don't condone suicide or any life being taken in any form, but I think we all can understand in some capacity, wether small or big, the feeling of being alone or feeling like no one understands. Instead of condemning this man, let's remember his legacy, his legend, his genius, his talent, his contribution to making you laugh and smile when you were down and out & allow his family to grieve without your harsh comments and judgements. You never know what people are going through & people don't always know what you're going through. Be there for your loved ones & let them be there for you... Reciprocate & have gratitude for great people in your life.

♪♫ People say I'm the life of the party
'Cause I tell a joke or two
Although I might be laughing loud and hearty
Deep inside I'm blue
So take a good look at my face
You'll see my smile looks out of place
If you look closer, it's easy to trace
The tracks of my tears.... ♪♫
Too Adorable.... Yep! That's how I feel right about nap time... LOL
I had the pleasure of playing his wife & working w/ the very talented @LochlynMunro on #JusticeServedMovie. What a sweetheart & professional!
