Friday Movie Review-Collateral Beauty

Collateral_Beauty_poster.png

This movie was so good that I saw it 3 times in the last 2 weeks.  I love stories that touch your heart.  Here are the 6 lessons that I learned from the movie:

  1. The co-star stated 1/2 of the billings were built of his relationships.  Business is done based upon the relationships.  So many people offer so many things that the only way to conduct business is how you feel about someone.  This is true in every business from birth to death.
  2. Death can make you feel that life is not worth living.  No parent wants to bury their child.  During the time of grief, people can respond in a number of ways.  Sometimes it takes years to regain the day to day routine.  When my son died, I was numb for over 1 year.  I could not get the strength to believe in children again.  It was the most difficult time in my life.
  3. Time waits for you know.  You can’t control it.  It is truly a gift and we must be thankful for everyday that we get. Many people take time for granted. We always wish for more, but what if you decide today to think about living as though you will not get any more after today.  That would force you to work today like was your last.  It would force you to love to today like it was your last.  It would help you see time is not under your rule. 
  4. Love is the fabric of life.  We can’t choose who we love or who loves us.  Just be open to receive it.  Don’t push people out of your life if they love you, just love them back. You can change your life with a little LOVE.
  5. If you knew you were dying, would you tell anyone??  If your answer is no, that is not fair.  Give people a chance to say goodbye.  That is the right way to die.
  6. Collateral Beauty is all around us, we must open our eyes to see it. The older people will tell you when God takes something or someone he replaces it with something or someone else.  I my case I did not know 2 beautiful children would arrive after Adrian died.  I was able to move pass the grief and see the collateral beauty.  My prayer is you will always see the collateral beauty.

Movie Review-Almost Christmas

almost-christmas

This movie was so good, I saw it twice.  If you can get past the profanity, the story is really inspiring.  Here are the 6 lessons I received from the movie:

  1. Holidays should inspire families to come together.  Most families try to meet up and visit during the holidays.  Sometimes this can be a good thing and other times it can bring up some bad memories.  Either way family should be able to accept the past and move forward.
  2. Things are not always the same when you return home.  Many times the holidays are a source of sorrow and pain due to the loss of a loved one.  This is very near and dear to me, because my own mom loved thanksgiving and during that time, I feel extremely low and grief more than normal.  
  3. Test your memory.  Many times when we see old friends, we might have a different version of something that went wrong.  Sometimes we carry a lie around that is totally false.
  4. Every job is not a good fit.  A politician truly has to know what is at stake when he/she decides to run and represent various donors.  The press has a way of taking a story and giving a false perception of the politician.
  5. It never gets old doing good.  If you have a person that feels a need to help others by all means help.  Never give up your efforts to help others.
  6. Angels do watch over you.  You never know how angels will show up and guide you to a better place.  Some angels are there to protect you and some angels just watch. Either way I am so glad that angels watch over me.

Keep IT in the FAMILY

keep.family

Today my post is about 12 hours later than normal due to a family situation.  I wanted to post because I am committed to writing every day Monday-Friday.   My situation made me recall some situations that Ms. Robbie with Sweetie Pie’s always say: KEEP IT in the FAMILY.  I wanted to share that message because when you have a business, it should be your goal to create something that you and your family can benefit from.  If you have a family member you can groom to work with you, it is critical that you do that.  It helps you build a legacy, when you look at the SWEETIE PIE’S EMPIRE, it is full of Ms. Robbie’s Family.  I take pride in knowing that I am building something that I can do just like Ms. Robbie suggests: KEEP IT in the FAMILY!
