Black Panther review and nails to match!

You will want to see it twice!

My review, Excellent Black Film, Good Marvel Film, great job staying true to the comics with the exception of how the father died. I only say good for #Marvel because there was a lot of ground work being laid in this film. This meant there wasn’t as much reconiscence, on the edge of your seat, near misses, making jokes while fighting, tearing up US buildings lol. Awesome technology and suit. If you saw Captain America: Civil War you saw his father’s death and Black Panther’s introduction. If you stayed until after the credits, you saw how they set it up for Advengers: Infinity War. I’m excited for the sequels. I wonder if his sister will eventually become the Black Panther down the road like in the comics and if he’ll meet and marry Storm. So much to look forward to. I’ll probably watch it again to sort out how they explained the history and look at Shuri’s hairstyles 😘. Definitely a take your older children. My 5 year old got bored halfway through so maybe 7 or 8year olds. It was a little long for my little ones. Please comment below with your thoughts on the movie!

So did I master Shuri? Ladybug was trying to guess which princess I was on the way to the movie.

You Are Not A Friend

This is a year of positivity and execution. Only letting beautiful spirits in my space. To do this we need to understand our company and what a friend is.

A friend is someone that has been or wants to be around you and know you. Inquires about you. If it’s your word against another, they won’t question you, they know your character as a person and can know how you would respond or act in a situation without even being there. They don’t always smile in your face but, are there for you in your different phases of life. Someone that isn’t just waiting for you to be there for them but will be there for you even in the tough times. They see you for you and are there when you need them to remind you of who you are, often before you realize you need it.

This year I’m going to do some gardening in my yard and in my life. Time to pick out the weeds and keep the flowers (those that reciprocate and care).

How will you know:

  • If you are always calling them…you’re not friends, you’re their friend
  • If you aren’t able to get a word in…you’re not friends, you’re their therapist
  • If they’ve never come to your house or you’ve never been to their house…not friends, you’re an acquaintance
  • If they don’t know if you have siblings or anything about your immediate family…not friends, you’re their groupie.
  • If they only call you when they have no one else to go out with, you’re not friends, your a fallback plan or a designated driver.
  • If they haven’t talked to you in the last year…you’re not friends, you’re someone they use to know.
  • If they’ve never prayed for you or with you…you’re not friends, you’re an after thought
  • If they don’t wish you a Happy Birthday…you’re not friends, you’re just cool.
  • If they have a major life event (wedding, children, divorce, deaths etc) and you find out on social media…you’re not friends, you’re stalking them on social media.
  • If they laugh or cringe when someone compares them with you…you’re not friends, you’re frenemies.
  • If you see them and they act like they didn’t see you…you’re not friends, you’re trying too hard.

Know the company you keep.
