Another Wednesday means another chance to draw a card from my Grateful AF deck and see what it wants me to appreciate today.
This one hits home for me, in part because I enjoy documentaries but also because I was featured in one (From Fat To Finish Line).
I am absolutely for those special people willing to commit to a story and make sure it gets told no matter the time it takes, the effort it requires, or the cost it demands. I have learned so much about so much through documentaries, from the histories of entire nations to the powerful story of a single boy or girl. And each of those films makes me a little wiser, a little more empathetic, and a lot more aware of what is happening all around me.
Thanks, historians and documentarians. Thank you for opening my eyes, my mind, and my heart to the larger world that surrounds me. By telling the stories of other people's lives, you have made mine so much more informed and educated.
And for all of that, yes, I am grateful AF.
