Our Precious Minds

Our minds is the most powerful element we own.  It enables us to be aware of the world and its experiences, to think, feel and it provides us  consciousness and thought.  It is also synonym of intelligence, intellect, understanding, reasoning, judgement and sense.

A couple of days ago, we lost a comedic genius and my favorite comedian, Robin Williams. There was no one like him and there will never  be. He was one of a kind.

Our minds can be our friend or our worst enemy and sometimes it can be a struggle to mandate our minds. It's ok to be sad and it's ok to be depressed, too, but if you feel you are inside a dark hole and cannot come out, don't be afraid to express yourself and seek help.

When my son, Andy passed, I tried so hard not to fall inside that dark hole. It might sound crazy, but I didn't want him to worry about me.  I wanted nothing to disturb his peace, so I kept on with my enormous pain and here I am.  I am just here.  Attaching myself to little things, memories, my family and to things I enjoy doing.

I've been in dark places, but I cannot imagine how deep in sadness Robin Williams was, that ending it all became his ultimate option. Let's take care of ourselves, let's take care of our loved ones.
If you are having suicidal thoughts or know someone who is,  call the National Suicide Prevention line 1800-273-8255.

Rest in peace, Mr. Williams and thank you for making us laugh so hard.
