This could be a movie review, but where’s the fun in that?! The WORLD is reviewing Deadpool.
You have Rotten Tomatoes, videos where Deadpool’s Ryan Reynolds meets Maidpool, and links upon links of other movie reviews, red carpet round-ups, parental advisory’s and more. So how about we NOT do that here. How ’bout you hit up Google and make that baby sing like the card catalog ~
new emoji leggings perfectly matched my Valentine’s Day Deadpool adventure feels <3
However, since it’s rare that I talk about my fandoms, I am pretty sure you didn’t know that I am a HUGE Deadpool fan. No really … a HUGE ONE and for a number of reasons. Of all of them, though, is the fact that Deadpool is relatable to me than a lot of characters in any comic universe. As such, from mainstream American comics, I only read Deadpool (and Hulk), exclusively. <3
Though this isn’t a movie review, I WILL slow down and say that the movie … my SOUL was ready …2 years ago! But it’s all in the timing right?! 😀 Seeing my other boyfriend (Deadpool … duuuhhhh) with my beau for our second Valentine’s Day together was the BEES KNEES! I have no complaints.
And for that … Let me share the 5 life lessons that Deadpool has taught me (and continues to remind me of) about being crazy. 😀 You know you’re crazy too (or you wouldn’t be reading this haha) so let’s see what wise life lessons big brother Deadpool has imparted to us as we move along our crazy life journeys.
disclaimer: this post is sprinkled with some of my favorite covers in my collection, unrelated to the lessons

5 LifeLessons Deadpool Taught Me
Never Take Yourself Too Serious
I am an artist, homie, lover, friend, daughter, business woman, kawaii lover, and more! Sometimes these things add up and sometimes they’re just not the move. Sometimes they’re all overwhelming at once and sometimes it seems like a piece of cake. But if I just smile and have fun trough it all, I can enjoy the journey just as well as the (hopeful) end result.
Accept & Embace Your Crazy
Truth … we’re ALL frakkin’ crazy. My crazy may trump yours, but the more you embrace it, understand, and accept it, the less internal damage you’ll do. That’s NOT to say you won’t go around accidentally fcuking ish up outwardly, but don’t take yourself too serious. Apologize, share your intended intentions (if you can) and try to do better the next time. Keep it pushin’ since crazy wasn’t cured in a day.
Sometimes the Voices in Your Head are REAL!
Ever heard that it’s ok to talk to yourself, but if you respond you’re crazy?! Yea well … truth be told, those people are probably hearing voices, ignoring them and making some horribly piss poor life decisions. Acknowledge your inner self, it’s ok! Besides … you don’t want inner self throwing a tantrum and faking shit up outwardly all the time. So acknowledge your inner crazy, show your crazy some love <3
Love is a Helluva Moral Compass
I don’t think there’s a demon and angel on the shoulders of people like Deadpool and myself. Those aren’t the voices we hear and answer to. Calm down ~ It’s not what’s about what’s right and wrong, or else Deadpool would be a legit superhero. Which that he is NOT! He’s a mercenary and ever so often he’ll lead with his heart. Why? Because even crazies have one and some other (possibly crazy person) has touched it. They’ve touched it so much so that their love becomes your moral compass while you’re out there you know … outwardly fckin’ ish up!
Variety is the Spice of Life!
We all have our methods and styles for doing things. Some of us even have signature styles but hey… it’s a-ok to switch it up a bit! Embrace your crazy and the variety it will offer up to you. Keep people on their toes. You never know … they may see a colorful spark and embrace your crazy instead of trying to change it! 💗
Through reading Deadpool, I’ve genuinely learned to enjoy my crazy. It’s MINE! It’s colorful, charasmatic, loveable, discerning and so much more. And if no one else is gonna love it, I will 🙂 My favorite part about my crazy is that it keeps me creative. The crazier I feel, the more I want to create, create, create!
