A good inventory for family to navigate conflict with:
A household could always look at some basic human necessities, to take note on how they are fulfilling those things for each other. Good housekeeping is important. Carrying on the note of Spring Cleaning, I'm going to share a list around mindfulness; it could be necessary around conflict resolution.
Have other people fill out the answers as to what they think they contribute to other people on the chart.
The subjects: What do we contribute to so-in-so's physical space? Emotional health? Mental boundaries? Heart (yes, it's important ❤️)? Health health? Financial health? Stress reduction?
It could be anything that seems to be creating conflict within a household, but it could definitely help spring cleaning it away to practice mindfulness around these issues. Assuming the family will discuss the subject. I think it's worth a try that I thought worth sharing. It is something I have researched a lot on in the past years that I wish I thought of... years ago 😅
Just human essentials to bring up. Especially after Coronavirus.
Does this photo look like an image from an essential movie to you? Does the stripe in his tie compliment the stripe on her blouse? Does she hate him or does she love him? Is he suspicious of her or is he trying to save her? Maybe the problems of (these) people don't amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world. Essential? My mom thought so.
Turner Classic Movies also considers this film Essential. I agree. Although that wasn't always the case. Nowadays I consider Casablanca to be a wonderful film. Think of how powerful some of the dialog is - how often its phrases have been mimicked and satirized. For example, 'These pretzels are making me thirsty.' versus 'Here's looking at you, Kid.' Yes that's right, I'm comparing Casablanca to a 90's sitcom but only in the way it embedded phrases into everyday conversation and lifestyle.
And I think Casablanca, like Seinfeld, has some really funny moments. When Claude Rains, acting as general, has to use his official capacity to shut down Rick's gin mill he says, "I'm shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on here." Just as a waiter hands him a stack of bills and says "Your winnings sir". "Oh, thank you very much," he replies. I could watch that scene again and again.
I do love Claude Rains and, here's the thing. The thing these two most recent Essentials have in common. Now, Voyager and Casablanca were both released in 1942, both co-starred Claude Rains and Paul Henreid, and both were produced by Hal B. Wallis.
Warner Bros. was really on a roll... I just browsed Hal B. Wallis' IMDB page and 1) found out he looks a lot like the movie director character in the original King Kong and 2) he produced more movies than I have time to count. Looks like he knew what he was doing.
My feelings about Casablanca have evolved over the years starting out as a sort of homework film I have to watch, to OK, everyone is so lovely in this movie, to feeling real comfort from watching the film. The reliability of the good guy risking all to help the underdog, the warmth I feel from seeing the old stars on screen, and the beauty. I love the beauty of Casablanca. I guess I've stopped asking why all of these refugees have such beautiful clothes - now I just go with it. Looks like the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
