Being George Bailey in a World of Mr. Potters

Following my Christmas tradition of watching It’s a Wonderful Life and I realize for the past year I’ve lived the life of George Bailey. I’ve given everything that I had to the people around me. From time, to money to a career and realized that in the moment of truth that I was still alone.

Fortunately I don’t need a bridge to jump off of to figure things out. Just like George no matter how much I want my freedom I realize that this is who I am. I can however understand the frustration that he felt and the loneliness as giving up his life for others meant exactly that.

Strange, isn’t it? Each man’s life touches so many other lives. When he isn’t around he leaves an awful hole, doesn’t he?

We are all limited in what we have whether it be strength, money or the most important of all time. In the end though George had a clear conscious knowing that he really did everything that he was capable of doing. In the end though everyone came around to help George out. I hope that everyone has a Wonderful Life no matter how hard things look.
