What’s great about Netflix is that you have access to shows that you might not otherwise have had access too because they weren’t currently airing on TV. So if you are in the mood for an inspiring tale you have a few to choose from. There really is something for everyone on Netflix.
Disclosure: I’m a member of the StreamTeam and as such I receive special perks and offers from Netflix in exchange for posting regularly.
I don’t’ know about you but I have big goals for 2016, this year will be the year to change all years. My one word for the year is Intentional and this word is for my personal and professional life. I won’t be doing anything this year that doesn’t have a specific reason for it.
My Netflix viewing will be intentional too. I’ll try to steer clear of binge watching shows that are just for fun (at least not all the time!) and focus on watching documentaries and movies that have a story to tell, a lesson to learn, that is intentional.
