I have fond memories of Robin Williams. I remember when Mr. Williams played Mork on Mork and Mindy (1978-1982) and I do remember watching the show.

That’s where I learned how to do my Mork impersonation (Na-Nu Na-Nu). I thought I was the only person who could do the special trick that Mork did with his fingers. My grandmother Ruby, bought me a Mork and Mindy doll and oh, how I loved those dolls.

I shared that memory because that is my first memory of Robin Williams and the rest is history. Any movie that I have ever seen Robin Williams in,  I have always enjoyed it.

ending-friendship

When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time. – Dr. Maya Angelou

Ending a friendship is never an easy task. I have had to end a few friendships in my life because my mind, body and spirit told me to let go. I felt bad and I also felt good after ending friendships. Is that even possible?

I felt bad because I hated hurting the other person.
I felt good because a burden was lifted.

We have all experienced being dumped by a friend, boyfriend or girlfriend at some time in our lives. The same feelings that exist when we are dumped are also the same feelings we experience when we are the ones doing the dumping.

Most of the time we do not officially end a friendship, we just ignore the friend and hope they get the message.

It is always best that we let the friend know that we are ending the friendship because it brings closures. Closure allows healing to begin. Continue reading
