Thor Ragnarok Trailers

Marvel has got me. If it were the Matrix, I would be completely, willingly plugged in. I am heavily biased because I even liked the sucky Hulk movie with the bad CG. It goes without saying that I am so syked for any Marvel movie that comes out on the big screen. It is a wonder that this is the first time I am posting the trailer for Thor: Ragnarok. I am also pretty excited to see Tessa Thompson kick butt along side Thor and company. In Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok,” Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok—the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization—at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger—the Incredible Hulk! Below is a compilation of all the trailers. Enjoy. Release date: November 2, 2017 Thor R

Take care of Yourself

Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship. - Buddha Health is the greatest gift. It is free to maintain if we work at it. Our health and well being is so vital to our happiness that we have to take special care of ourselves. Maintaining a healthier life style can help with chronic illness as well as keep us out of the vicious stress cycle. Contentment the greatest wealth. It is hard for an ambitious person to be content. I believe that we can be happy with the course of our lives while striving for more. This is when we enjoy the journey as much as the destination. Faithfulness the best relationship. It is no coincidence that faithfulness is linked with strong relationship. What else do we expect from those around us whether it be family, friends, or lovers. Faithfulness is a show of support which we can never have enough of or provide to ourselves and those we care about. Be kind to yourself. Be mindful of your health. Co

Daniel Caesar's Best Part

So we just going to keep let the foreigners kill the R&B game? Maybe I need to do better in following US singers. At any rate, Best Part by Daniel Caesar is a melodic beauty. Simple and moving. "If you love me won't you say something." If is nostalgic to me.

Let go of the Drama

Don't allow mindless drama to stress you out. Breath and let it go. I find that sometimes I make my own drama in life by worrying about things that I can do nothing about or by worrying about things that have not even happened yet. I make up these scenarios in my head of the possible ways life can stress me out and then I stress out about it. This is an unnecessary way to let drama into your life. You can be your own drama creator. We have to do better at letting things go especially when in the grand picture of life they are minor.  More importantly than letting drama go, learn to recognize drama lovers. There are people in your life that attract drama or create it. Maybe they suck the life out of you with their negativity. Maybe you are always worrying about what mess they will find themselves in. We do not have to ostracize them completely but sometimes it is alright to put distance between yourself and the drama lover of creator. It is okay to step away. It is okay t

Maroon 5 - What Lovers Do ft. SZA

Maroon 5 does these songs that simply make me happy when I hear them and "What Lovers Do" does not disappoint. It is an upbeat fun tune that I bop my head to and gets me dancing around the house. "Ooh, ooh. Been wishin' for you. Ooh, ooh. Tryna' do what lovers do (ooh)." So relieve some stress with Maroon 5 and SZA. get up and move around and get your dance on.

What does Your Presence Say about You?

What does your presence say about you? Your presence should be a beacon of joy and light or calm. When I worked in the hospital emergency department, I would always check the staffing list to see who I was working with that day. If had to spend the next 12 to 13 hours with a team, I needed to know that  we will get along, work well together, get the job done and have fun. I had to mentally prepare myself if I got stuck with someone who did not contribute to that plan. There were certain individuals that everyone would avoid because working with them proved to be extremely difficult and unpleasant. Their presence convinced us that this was not a person you wanted around. The affect that we can have by those around us can be lasting and phenomenal. We can inspire people to be better or do more. Be mindful on the message you are sending out. Be mindful of the life you are living. What is your presence saying about you? Do you bring joy are do people roll their eyes when they see  you

Pacific Rim Uprising

Pacific Rim Uprising Pacific Rim came was released to theaters about 4 years ago. It got fair reviews but being that me and my household (okay just my son and I) are lovers of science fiction and action movies and we loved it. So imagine my excitement when the trailer for Pacific Rim 2, Pacific Rim Uprising . Not only is the trailer a good one but Mako is still in it, looking like a boss, and they added John Boyega! Side note: It is really a shame that Charlie Hunnam's movie career (or just plain old career) did not take off as people hoped or expected (The Lost City of Z box and King Arthur both box office bombs). Special effect on this look great. I love that the two crazy scientist are back. Not a fan of Scott Eastwood although I did like his character in the last Fast and Furious installment. Not really sure what he will bring to the table. Release date: March 23, 2018 Pacific Rim Upsrising Pacific on Twitter Pacific on FB Pacific on the Gram

Be your Guru because Tony Robbins is Not Your Guru

I am Not Your Guru is a intimate look at Tony Robbins in action. It is now playing on Netflix. Recently, I have been more and more interested in watching documentaries on Youtube, Netflix and Amazon. Believe me, I can watch them better than I can read them and this is coming from someone who loves to read. While searching from something interesting to watch and avoiding TIME: The Kalief Browder Story  because my heart and soul cannot bear that heartbreaking story, I stumbled upon I am Not Your Guru. I am a fan of come ups so I decided to watch it. First off, I did not realize that Tony Robbins had such a potty mouth. I like it LOL. It too have a potty mouth but I would not go around cursing people out like he does. I may throw in some shits here and there though. The potty mouth revelation was the only thing that I liked about the self-help display. I did not make it to the end of the program. I could not. I am not at all hating on his success but as a medical professional and s

Live for Today

Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree. - Martin Luther This is how we should live life. This echos the sentiments of carpe diem, living for today. It seems to take it a step further in that regardless of knowing for a fact that tomorrow disaster will strike, a person still chooses to live today. I think that is why it is better to live in the moment and not to worry too much over the on goings of tomorrow. Of course there any many things that we plan on. We plan birthday parties, vacations, graduations, and retirements. I do not think we should stop doing those things; however, do not get so caught up at it stops you from taking action today. Do not let tomorrows worries stop you from enjoying life today. If you plant that tree (or seed) who is to know that it will not survive? In this came what will happen tomorrow may be known but because of our ability to survive and overcome adversity how we react to this is not known. The

Create a Stress Free Zone

You are now entering a stress free zone. I am working on creating a stress free zone in my home and in my mind. When I think about what a stress free zone means to me, it is a place where I let go of all worries. It is a place where I decide to have fun, laugh, smile, love myself. It is a space that when I step into it, I make an effort to leave the drama, stressful thoughts, negative behind. I have not given much thought to creating an actual space in my home or my mind. I usually talk about it but now I am planning to make it reality. I will have to take a picture of this spot when I am done. Usually people and myself included have state that there bedroom is that stress free zone but yet they bring negativity in that space. In reality your home should be the place that shields you from that bad of the outside world but I know for a fact that my home is sometimes the cause as well. Creating a space that you are allowed to leave the stress behind is key to re-balancing yourself.

Share Your Authentic Self

The authentic self is the soul made visible. -Sarah Ban Breathnach Keep it real. People always want others to keep it real i.e. be true, be authentic, be real. There is nothing that I appreciate more than someone being his/her authentic self. It is about honesty and being upfront. Is it not better to know what and who you are really dealing with? If I know who a person really I then I know how to interact with them accordingly or not to interact with them at all. This is important in keeping your life drama free and clear of negative energy. It is important in knowing how to deal with coworkers and acquaintances. Being your authentic self is even more important when dealing with ... yourself. I find that people are not honest with themselves enough. If you do not know where you are how can you plan to become better. If you ignore your shortcomings you cannot change them. This is so important for personal growth. Knowing who you truly are allows you to be aware of how you can ha
