I'm an inspirational documentary junkie. I love documentaries about people who are doing amazing things in the world (for example, Emanuel's Gift and Born into Brothels). So when I found the My Hero website, it was singin' my song. I especially like the "heroes in the news" feature.
There is good news out there, and I'm drawn to it like a moth to flame. I stopped watching TV years ago because I find it toxic. After years without watching TV news, the "if it bleeds it leads" spin literally makes me feel ill on those rare occasions when I watch it.
I love inspirational documentaries for two reasons. First, they often spotlight how people can succeed in spite of incredible adversity. And that inspires me and reminds me that whatever I want to create is not out of reach unless I decide it is.
Second, they often highlight people who are making the world a better place, and I love that. It's core to what I do and who I want to be in the world. And it makes me want to do more, more, more.
What inspires you? Who inspires you?
