Have you ever watched the 1946 film called ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’?
The film stars James Stewart as George Bailey, a man who has given up his dreams in order to help others and whose imminent suicide brings about the intervention of his guardian angel, who shows George all the lives he has touched and how different life in his community would be had he never been born. This got me thinking of what turns out to be what can be an enlightening, but simple exercise.
Take five minutes to breathe and relax and think about what would peoples’ lives be like, if you had not been born? Think of what your parents’, family’s, friends’, colleagues’ and your community’s lives would be like if you had not been born?
It's a Wonderful Life is a 1946 American Christmas fantasy drama film produced and directed by Frank Capra, based on the short story "The Greatest Gift"
