Robin Williams 1951-2014.

"You're only given a little spark of madness. You mustn't lose it." - Robin Williams

I did have a different post ready to go up today, however the details of my skincare seem so shallow in comparison. Today I just want to write from the heart. I, like many woke to the sad news of Robin Williams passing. Robin Williams was a figure in my childhood who was always there, who never let me down and who always made me feel better. Whether it was through Mrs. Doubtfire, The Genie or Peter Pan his infectious personality and charisma shone through those eyes like a beacon. I never met him, or knew what he was like outside of his films. However, they say people will always remember how you made them feel. He always made me feel happy and safe even through the darkest of times. The countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions is what he will be remembered for. As the numerous number of tributes pour in, I just wanted to say thank you. No, I didn't meet you or work with you, but just as a fan and someone who enjoyed your movies. Thank You. I laughed my whole childhood because of you. You're legend will live for generations.

"Genie, you're free."

  2. Well said. I remember Jumanji and Hook being on at Christmas every year. It is a shame that it takes something like this for us to thank someone but that is just how it goes, it takes something for us to bring these things to the forefront of our mind. I hope he finds peace now. x

    1. Thanks Amy, I used to watch Hook all the time at school. When it would rain and we couldn't play outside it was the go to film to watch. His films always cheered me up. From Flubber to Aladdin, they are all movies I will treasure. I hope that people will understand how crippling living with depression can be.
