Through this hard time at home, We all are experiencing different life-stages, emotions, feelings. And how to spend our time, trying to be productive even if forced to stay home.

Among other things, last night I watched this drama movie, “Collateral Beauty”, directed by David Frankel which centers on New York advertising executive, Howard Inlet (Will Smith), who after experiencing a deep personal tragedy retreats from life entirely and slips into a severe depression. As a form of therapy, Howard begins writing letters to Time, Love and Death. His friends Whit Yardsham (Edward Norton), Claire Wilson (Kate Winslet), Simon Scott (Michael Pena) and Madeleine (Naomie Harris), grow concerned and devise a drastic plan to force him to confront his grief in a surprising and profoundly human way.

Spoiler alert. There is a happy-end: Howard learns to live again and begins to put his life back together. That is a bit predictable for a movie but that helps me to underline something important. It fit so well this time we are passing through. No matter how life can be hard and tragic. We are all connected, we all face the same difficulties and we don’t have to give up. Let’s hold on.

 

We are not alone. Even if now everything seems so surreal, we will start to live again and hopefully with much more consciousness, that there are no boundaries on this earth and we can grow together respectfully of each other and of our environment.

Because in the end, we all share and care about the same things after all. And we need to be more sympathetic and trust humanity.

Moreover, that’s could be a great opportunity to grab the “collateral beauty”, to grow our passions, to spend more time taking care of us and to think about our future.

 

Let’s stay creative. Everything has its beauty.
