As Robin Williams said: “You’re only given one little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it.”

How fully are you expressing your true essence? The actor Robin Williams was a big personality that made us laugh and delighted us with his creative rants. From his films “Good Will Hunting” and “The Dead Poets Society” to “The World According to Garp,” and “What Dreams May Come,” he showed his range of comic genius and dramatic acting. Despite his apparent battle with drugs and depression, he lived his 63 years out loud – at least to the crowds. Although his light was dimmed too soon, he can inspire us all to keep the spark alive. The vicissitudes of life can often douse our passion and creativity. You can feel like you’re living someone else’s life. If you sense that is happening, shake things up. Do something that may seem uncharacteristic to others while retaining that which is uniquely you. Don’t try to conform and don’t be afraid to look foolish. If someone is trying to step on your dreams and dampen your self-esteem, run as fast and far as you can. Seize the day and go for what’s in your heart. This is YOUR life. Shine bright!

Until next time, remember – it’s your divine life, live it to the fullest. The power is in your hands!

With Purpose & Power,
