I was able to watch Becoming, a Netflix documentary featuring former (but more like forever) First Lady Michelle Obama while on tour promoting her book of the same name. The documentary was directed by Nadia Hallgren and was made by Mrs. Obama and President Barack Obama’s Higher Ground Productions, which currently has an exclusive deal with Netflix
I, like a good chunk of the world, have read Mrs. Obama’s book. I also had the opportunity to see her on her Becoming tour during her first night in DC (A DREAM!). If you’ve read the memoir, the documentary is a visual, condensed version of that but also includes footage from some of the tour stops (including the show I went to!), as well as community events, intimate moments with her family and staff, and more.
I’ve already read mixed reviews from news outlets, but I don’t really care. I found it to be a good documentary to inspire and motivate, especially in these crazy times we’re living in right now. And you know me. I always love finding takeaways to share with you all.

Someone I follow on Instagram shared this Words of Wisdom video from Taraji P. Henson. I’ve seen it previously, but I need this reminder today.
In this clip from an interview with Essence, Taraji shares that she doesn’t concern herself with attempting to make people happy about who she is and what she does. She remains who she is instead of trying to change up to impress others. “I live my truth. If you don’t see that, then you don’t love me anyway,” she shrugged. “I don’t waste time trying to get you over here on my side.” Continue reading “Words of Wisdom: “Don’t Live Your Life To Make People Happy”-Taraji P.
