With age, one no longer wants to work all the time, and health no longer tolerates a large number of transfers and duties. Rather, one looks to a slower pace in which a broader field of interest in healthy nutrition, appropriate sport, family, friends, hobbies and continuous learning takes place.

This is what passed by my mind while going by car for an hour to a seminar in one of the centers, in compliance with a promise despite my passing a recovery period, and despite the many seminars in important fora, media meetings and international conferences where I offered immediate treatment for personality development published internationally and on Which I got patent.

What favored my decision was that I am not accustomed to going back on a promise I made, rather I have to endure the physical and psychological hardship of commitment when necessary.

The lack of attendees was not the most important, but their quality; It is originally for writers, critics, and cinematographers who enjoy imagination, a tendency to be creative and open to new ideas, and here was the surprise when I talked about an American movie Whose director tried the immediate healing for Personality Development and told her story, so as I was in the exit hall waiting for the elevator and the moment to return to the comfort of my home, when Director Sherif Gaber followed me, proposing to prepare an Egyptian documentary, so we agreed to meet.

The first impression was that he was serious and professional doing his work with love, which is what I confirmed by working with him, noticing how he performed despite the difficulties of going out and mixing due to the Corona crisis, and that is a fundamental thing that builds confidence in those I love to work with, but that was only a conscious part of a comfortable feeling.

I found out some reasons when he and his photographer came home to make the movie, so his spontaneous interaction was evident not only with the family but also with artistic paintings and with my little dog whom he chose to start the film With me cuddling. He even told me what life would look like from a dog’s point of view; So I was with a friend who also brings us imagination, openness, love of creativity, fun, and living through others outside of oneself.

 

The saying goes: birds of a feather flood together, we have found pleasure in teasing one another and exchanging views on matters of life, thought, and art.

Now, friend Sherif Jaber has finished preparing the film, with an innovative, intelligent title, which is the Happiness Doctor in preparation for displaying it in local and international festivals.

He draws the attention of viewers to a discovery that serves science, humanity, and those seeking treatment, and perhaps the name of Egypt is raised internationally if viewed by a supportive competent authority who adopts the endeavor.

But that was not the only gain, as how many endeavors I made pending the results I envision fairly! And why did he attend the Seminar, while because of its comprehensive program of other subjects I could apologize for it without spoiling it, citing my convalescence?

Indeed, the friend attended the seminar only to discuss a book whose role was after my treatment! Did each of us have an intuition that motivated what was not expected? Is it God’s will that gives when we work without waiting, surrendering to His command, and to destiny and share without imposing our conditions of what we perceive as a justice on life?

Is what happened an introduction to cooperation, searching for new things that inspire and benefit us based on what we share psychologically, and on our love for art, expression, imagination, creativity, and life?

Time will tell, and whatever the answer, I have earned a serious and active friend, who makes cooperation fun, creativity a pleasure, learning, easy, emotions enriched, satisfaction shared, and future promising.
