“We’re here to connect. Love, time, death. Now these three things connect every single human being on Earth. We long for love, we wish we had more time and we fear death.” (Collateral Beauty)

How’s your life?

“How is my life?”, I questioned myself yesterday evening after I saw a very emotional movie called “Collateral Beauty”. I won’t tell you too much about the script, but I must take my bow for the amazing cast of this movie, starting with Will Smith, who plays the main character in “Collateral Beauty”. You can also admire Kate Winslet, Helen Mirren, Keira Knightley, Edward Norton and Michael Pena.

The story is about how you deal with your life, with love, time and death. And sorrow. How can you move on after a tragedy? How can you live when you don’t want to live anymore, cause you have any motivation to do it. You just keep living.

Of course, we don’t need a tragedy in our lives, to think at the deepest resorts of what keeps us alive. There are so many other moments when you feel that nothing good, or beautiful or wonderful could happend to you. When you are just to exhausted to see the beauty that surrounds you. When you feel that “Follow Your Dream” sentence is just a platitude for the fools. When you don’t have the courage to get off your bed to start a new day, because what’s the point? Yes, It happened to me many times in the past. And probably I was very close to send some letters to Love, Time, and Death, as Howard did in the movie (or at least some messages on Whatsapp). To tell them how cruel they are. Because it is so familiar to keep an eye on the collateral damage of anything we do. We don’t tend to look for beauty. That’s why the term “collateral” is often followed by the term “damage”.

“You’ve been given a gift, this profound connection to everything. Just look for it, and I promise you it’s there, the collateral beauty.”

So, can you see it? Can you find the collateral beauty?

Cum e viata ta?

“Cum e viata mea?”, m-am intrebat ieri seara, dupa ce am vazut splendidul si emotionantul film “Collateral Beauty – A doua sansa”. Nu o sa va spun foarte multe despre scenariul si actiunea filmului, insa trebuie neaparat sa ma inclin in fata actorilor senzationali ce joaca in “Collateral Beauty”, in frunte cu Will Smith, care interpreteaza personajul principal. Alaturi de el mai apar: Kate Winslet, Helen Mirren, Keira Knightley, Edward Norton si Michael Pena, toti absolut geniali in rolurile lor.

E posibil sa exagerez poate, insa de mult nu mi s-a intamplat sa mai ies de la un film cu lacrimi in coltul ochilor. Povestea este foarte emotionanta si vorbeste despre modul in care reusim sa supravietuim si sa mergem mai departe dupa ce trecem printr-un moment tragic  in viata noastra. Despre resorturile care ne fac sa continuam sa traim, desi noi nu mai avem nicio motivatie sa facem asta. Pentru ca viata, iubirea, timpul si moartea nu mai au nicio semnificatie pentru noi.

Desigur, nu trebuie sa trecem printr-o tragedie ca sa ne gandim la sensul vietii. Pana la urma, sunt atatea momente in care simtim ca nimic bun si frumos nu mai poate sa ni se intample. Cand credem ca totul merge absolut ingrozitor si nu mai gasim niciun motiv sa ne ridicam dimineata din pat, pentru ca ce rost ar mai avea? Cand esti mult prea obosit pentru a mai vedea frumusetea din jurul tau. Cand “Urmeaza-ti visul” pare doar un indemn, o platitudine pentru prosti. Am trecut si eu prin astfel de momente de nenumarate ori. Si am fost probabil destul de aproape de a le trimite niste scrisori Iubirii, Mortii si Timpului, asa cum face Howard in film (sau macar niste mesaje pe Whatsapp). Sa le spun cat de crude sunt cu noi. Pentru ca suntem mult mai obisnuiti sa ne privim ca niste victime colaterale ale evenimentelor din viata noastra, in loc sa vedem frumusetea existentei unei a doua sanse. Aceasta frumusete nu o cautam niciodata. Desi ea exista.  E acolo intotdeauna.

“Ti s-a facut un dar, aceasta profunda conexiune cu tot ce te inconjoara. Asa ca priveste mai atent, si iti promit ca o sa o descoperi. A doua sansa e acolo.”

 

LOve,
