It's a wonderful life

in #entertainment2 years ago

Life is not always easy, in fact often it's downright hard. Life is also unfair for many people. We as human beings are capable of great things like love compassion kindness and empathy for others. On the other hand we as human beings are also capable of the opposite to those things like cruelty unkindness greed etc.
I recently read a post about a film called "3 DAYS" by @julieo and although i haven't viewed the film yet, ( I will soon)
It reminded me of a film iv'e seen a few times in the past called "A Wonderful Life" an old black and white film made in 1946 with James Stewart playing the role of George Baily. This film in my opinion is a tour de force in showing the above stated qualities and negatives that we have as humans. I first saw this film when i was about 11 years old. Back then as a family we would all huddle up together in front of that old black and white tv on a Sunday afternoon and watch the Sunday Matinee. In those days back in the 1960s it was usually an old black and white film and mostly american. Since that time i've watched "A Wonderful Life" quite a few times. The film focuses on George Baily a decent kind man, faced with problems not of his doing George, knowing that in money terms he is worth more dead than alive, contemplates suicide, however he is distracted at the time he is about to throw himself of a bridge into a river by an Angel, Clarence. George tells Clarence that he wished he had never been born. Clarence grants him that wish. George sees how it would have been if he had never been born. I'ts a touching story and a great Christmassy happy ending. Watching this old classic can be uplifting and restore belief in the nicer sides to our human nature. For those that are interested here's just a short clip of the film.

Life is beautiful or not, depends on how you choose to perceive it. I have realised that we have been blessed with this amazing creation and we must embrace with a beautiful heart. Life is amazing in all the small things. The morning sunrise , a good jog, a wide smile in the beginning of the day, a wonderful family and amazing friends. Many people have all this in their life but we fail to acknowledge it. Life is all about love, laughter, sharing, spreading a smile and most important living. I am fortunate enough to have realised all this at a young age and believe me my life has changed for the good. Life is just so uncertain and that’s perhaps the best part. We may go on planing for years to come and one day all of that becomes futile. So my friend life for me is “CarpeDiem” , embracing the uncertainties and just living with a smile. Trust me it will make a big difference. Your heart will answer you when the joy becomes unparalleled.

Keep loving, keep smiling, keep living.

Love and happiness always. :)

Thankyou.

Beautiful. I couldn't have said it better.

Es cierto amiga la vida es complicada tiene muchos antibajos a veces es muy difícil y mi injusta pero tenemos que seguir luchando para salir hacia adelante. Es como aquí en Venezuela para nosotros la vida es muy dura tenemos que tanto para estirar lo poco que tenemos para poder comer y si habla algo y te descubren muchas veces comienzan las persecuciones.

I will search the movie on the internet to see. good short film

Life is wonderful indeed.

Well you just made me curious about the movie...
I also now want to see the movie now' 3 days'

'It's a wonderful Life'
I remember how good the movie was, puts everything into perspective.
Highly recommended.

It is very informative regarding various prospective of life..

Awesome movi sir, thanks for sharing such a awesome post, You are great sir,Have a great week.

Feel of classic movies is something different from what we see now...
Love the classic movies....full of emotions..

This makes alot of sense to me I can write an entire post regarding my situation but I won't.
Thank you for putting this up bro am a big fan of yours .
If time allows then please make time to check my posts.☺

I am glad to see you writing again sir! Reading this post makes me feel you are a good and kindhearted person.

I haven't seen the movie yet, but it seems worthy to watch.

Stay blessed sir.

Hey @bobbylee, your post seems very inspiring. I am curious about the two movies you mentioned (3 DAYS and A Wonderful Life) . I will try to watch both films.

Thanks @bobbylee for share post.

life is wonderfull
Because you wake up every morning. Because when the wind blows it caresses your skin. Because laying in the grass gives you the best view of the sky. Because breathing in and out keeps you alive. Because interacting with people and animals is fulfilling. Because you are alive.

i always read this quote

Imagine there was one life preserver thrown somewhere in some ocean and there is exactly one turtle in all of these oceans, swimming underwater somewhere. The probability that you came about and exist today is the same as that turtle sticking its head out of the water — in the middle of that life preserver. On one try. - Dr. Ali Binazir.

I agree with you sir, life is not easy at all. But this struggles in our life is like spices of life it self. We can't say life is wonderful without this trials. Very nice article sir.

My life is now miserable again. That's life. Sometimes happy sometimes sad.

the ups and downs of life makes it exciting. the movie that you mentioned seemed very interesting even if I just watched a portion of it.. I'll be looking for it.. thank u for being an inspiration today..

When the life that we run we are in accordance with reality, there we learn the life experience, that life is not always easy, thanks for some information you give @bobbylee, nice to meet you

its not always the same but the tough time only make us better :)

Good Movie although only short clip nya.manusia does have tendency to do two things, good and evil. But I am sure goodness will eventually win, not only in films but also in real life.
Thanks @bobbylee

Tolerance that ends with affection is what everyone should do, without any disagreement and need each other. life is sometimes difficult if some people just look down on people around them and they clash with arrogance regardless of people who want to be happy with a smile. Regards @bobbylee. Resteem let everyone see about the movie you mentioned.

The two movies you mentioned may be able to try to watch it, it's a very positive post from you. In life of course everyone chooses to always seek happiness and always want to smile. life has always been a true meaning in every journey of life. do you agree @bobbylee.

Wow good reflection sir, good to see you posting again.😍 I'll look forward to that movie

Sometimes the reality of life is not the same as expectations. but if something achievement that we run according to plan will be very pleasant. Thank you for the information you provided.

I like how you see things in a better and positive view. It is always great to focus on the good side of things. If we dwell in the bad, then we will be miserable. What we choose to see will also attract those which makes life depressing. We lose focus on what is important and our purpose in life. Start by looking at the small things and learn to appreciate and value them. It starts with small things and then to bigger things. Angels come to us in the form of our family and friends and even strangers.

That looks like an interesting movie. We used to have a TV and it is in black and white too. We do have a colored one but it is only for watching tapes but that came later. I will look into this film and watch it, too.

Yes life is not always the same. Some day we get happiness and some other day we get filled with sadness. But everyday and everytime it teaches us a lession. BDW i saw the video and i'm eager to watch it. Seems like the old man is an intresting guy. I'll definately watch the movie soon and it will be intresting i guess.. thanks for the post

Sometimes life is not what we want but how do we live it just to make it easier and fun. Thank still @bobbylee I have never watched it and I will try to watch it.

Thank you for sharing this clip @bobbylee and reminding us that no matter what happens to us we should always choose to be compassionate to others and to love them the best way we can. Seeing this clip reminded me of why I was here in this world. It reminded me of my passion which is to help others on their need. No matter how many times we fall we should never lose our hope that someday it will, that someday everything will be okay and we should keep on fighting. I can't stop my tears while watching the movie. Thank you so much.

It's a wonderful life we have to be thank of. 😀 Thanks @bobbylee. 😀 I gonna search and watch that beautiful movie. 😀 Have a great day ahead.

It seems to be a nice movie

As they say "from the womb of suffering, happiness is born"

life is wonderful , full of ups and downs , happiness and sadness , laughs and tears , but what make life more beautiful are the peole around you and it's how you deal with it everyday
God bless you more and more sir @bobbylee ❤️❤️❤️

I wish we can also see what if we weren't born or the other story of our life... This is really inspiring sir, and knowing that you love this movie, really shows how kindyour heart is... As I always said to my post on my footer.. Always look at the brighter side...

Thank you sir Bobbylee for unending support to us... And hopefully i'll be reading your post everyday... Have a great day.. 😘😘😘😊

Yeah bro you are true but sometime you never know what to do and your life turn into a darkness and you feel alone

You're right sir, we are capable of doing good or bad. It is just a matter of what we choose. I think it is better to be human and feeling everything but don't go overboard with emotions. Thank you for sharing sir @bobbylee and I hope you post often. 😊

You try to post the best (positive). Maybe I will try to watch the movie. Thank you for sharing and have a nice day. :-)

Back then as a family we would all huddle up together in front of that old black and white tv on a Sunday afternoon and watch the Sunday Matinee.

That sounds so nice! Sounds like you've some good memories from back then :)
It sounds like a touchy movie! I like classic movies :)

I watched it for the first time when I was about 11, too! This movie is a big deal for me to watch every year. And every year that I watch it I'm struck by HOW much of an impact it's had on my life. Every year it affects me differently, and the impact is always profound. It helps me see how I've changed and grown because I see it differently, am touched differently, and learn a different lesson every year.

From school to university we have prepared so many times for exam but now I realise that life isn’t the toughest exam and no body can escape from it .... In today’s world everyone wants peace in their lives whether it’s a rich or poor ..... we all are fighting in our lives to find peace , to balance our life .... my thinking is that we should always wish and do good for others whether in return they do good to us or not

Second time I see you're promoting this movie. Will watch! :)

Hola amigo, espero que esté teniendo una buena semana, por aquí estoy pasando a saludarlo y decirle que tiene toda la razón, la vida tiene muchos bajones y tropiezos pero queda de parte nuestra levantarnos y seguir adelante, feliz día.
