It's a Wonderful Life
These days I'm in rehearsals for a musical version of "It's a Wonderful Life".
The story of George Bailey touches many people and has a great deal to say for those interested in personal improvement and development, and for those who wish to make changes in their lives.
Too much focus is given to the rich and famous. George's story is about an ordinary person. He wishes to travel and is never able to. He sees friends like Sam Wainwright grow rich and move away. His own brother is a celebrated war hero. Yet, George is still in Bedford Falls running his family's Savings and Loan.
A crises dispirits George but then an epiphany helps him see he actually has a rich and wonderful life.
One must appreciate what one has even if striving for something more, something different. Use the gifts you have and work toward what you desire.
