a few things I've been liking

It's Friday. I talk a lot about feelings, self-care, and grief on the blog. Which seems very applicable this week.

Here are a few things I've been liking:

  1. TIG on Netflix was an absolute surprise. I love Netflix originals & I thought it was going to be a comedy special. I was captured by this documentary immediately. It felt very honest and raw. Tig discusses her cancer diagnoses, dealing with her mom's death and being in the public eye. Even with the heavy topics discussed, it still is such a feel good watch.

  2. The Red Table with Jada Pinkett Smith. I would never have guessed that I'd be watching a television show on Facebook. But here we are. This show is SO GOOD. It features three generations of women (grandmother, mother, daughter) discussing really interesting topics. I love that it exists.

  3. One Day at a Time is also on Netflix. I was obsessed with the first season and only recently visited the second season. It is a stunner. I laughed, I cried. I'm obviously a big believer that #represenationmatters, so it's no surprise I love that I can watch a well-done Latino family sitcom. I'm very into watching the three generations of women interact, and find myself reminded of my mom and grandmother when watching the show.

  4. Coco. I love love love this movie. It's colorful and musical, I even listen to the soundtrack. It's about Day of the Dead and the unique approach it has to death and family. It is also such a good representation of a lot of Mexican family dynamics. I especially love all of the strong maternal figures in the film. So much love, so much guilt. It's on Netflix now.

When I was thinking about writing this blog post, I realized much of the content I've been consuming lately revolves around mother-daughter dynamics, cancer & grief.  Even so, I've been so comforted by these stories as of late and I'm very glad they exist.

Thanks for reading!
