Collateral Beauty

Will Smith was amazing in the movie: Collateral Beauty
Last year, Jada Pinkett Smith, lashed out at the organisers of the Oscars as she claimed that her husband deserved at the least, a nomination for the movie, Collateral Beauty. At the time, I thought that she was just starting waves for Will but after watching the movie, I understand why she did what she did.

Will Smith played a successful New York advertising executive who suffered a great tragedy & retreats from life. While his concerned friends try desperately to reconnect with him, he seeks answers from the universe by writing letters to Love, Time & Death. When his notes bring unexpected personal responses, he begins to understand how these constants interlock in a life fully lived and how even the deepest loss can reveal moments of meaning & beauty. That is collateral beauty. Finding beauty even in the darkest times.

For In Perfect Harmony, this has been the worst year in business, facing all kinds of challenges & having to make difficult decisions based on them. I have had many moments when I wanted to throw in the towel but I had HOPE. Hope is a joyful expectation that something is coming/go going to happen to you. Without hope, we dwell in a place of dis-pear & what is life if it is lived in Darkness? Standing here now, I see why I chose hope and I am glad that I did.

We were backed into a corner & decided to move. After just 9 months of being there, it meant thousands to be quite literally trashed and even more thousands spent. Seeing us here now, I can actually thank those circumstances for if it wasn’t for them, I wouldn’t have been bold enough to be here now, in a store that personifies our brand. That is our Collateral Beauty, what is yours? Do you see it yet, if not, keep on pushing forward & you will soon.

Much Love & Blessings
Naomi
