It's a Purposeful Life

It's a Purposeful Life - Helping Seniors Stay Focused in Retirement

"With Christmas being just a few days away, Frank Capra's iconic movie, 'It's a Wonderful Life', can be found on multiple television stations and streaming platforms. It's a story with a message that never gets old," said certified elder law Attorney RJ Connelly III. "In the movie, the lead character, George Bailey, played by James Stewart, is ready to end his life due to the problems he is facing, and on top of it all, it's Christmas. As angels discuss George, his life is presented in a series of flashbacks. Just as he is about to jump from a bridge, he ends up rescuing his guardian angel - who then shows George what his town would have looked like if it hadn't been for all his charitable deeds over the years. This allows George to realize the impact he has had on others and why he needs to continue his work."
