“Ain’t no life that’s better than yours…”
– J. Cole on “Love Yours

I’ve talked about this before, but I felt the need to talk about it again (especially with Thanksgiving just a few days ago). This month, I wanna talk about feeling thankful.

Before that though, I’d like to welcome you to the November 2017 Opinions Column. It’s here that I talk about whatever’s on my mind, and this month is no different. Sooo let’s get right into it.

“Sunny days wouldn’t be special if it wasn’t for rain
Joy wouldn’t feel so good if it wasn’t for pain”
– 50 Cent on “Many Men

Facing setbacks is never easy. In fact, it’s one of the hardest things we have to endure. Nobody plans to be knocked off course or pushed back, especially when they’re progressing. But sometimes, life says otherwise. Whether it’s not getting a job, getting a bad grade, or losing a relationship, setbacks are a part of life. The challenge, and it’s a tough one, is learning how to deal with them.

What’s up world? Welcome to the October 2017 Opinions Column. If you’re new here, welcome and thanks for visiting. If you’re returning, welcome back! This month, we’re gonna talk about facing setbacks, why it’s relevant, and how I’m learning to deal with them. Here we go!

No I’m not lucky I’m blessed, yes!
– Nicki Minaj on “Moment 4 Life

If you’re reading this, consider yourself blessed. You’re able to read. You’ve got eyes to be reading this. You’ve also got some kind of internet connection. Those might seem like small things, but they’re not. They’re actually huge, especially if you consider those that aren’t afforded those things. So yes, we are blessed.

What up y’all? What’s going on? Welcome to the September 2017 Opinions Column. This month, I want to spend a little time talking about how we’re blessed and why I’m even talking about this. If you’re new to the site, welcome! And if you’re returning, welcome back! Ok, so let’s dive deeper, shall we?

It’s really easy to get off track. I’ve said it time and time again, but getting sidetracked is easy. And with distractions everywhere, it can get krazy. So when things pull you in different directions, it’s important to focus on the straight lines. What do I mean?

Well first, let me welcome you. Welcome to the Opinions Column! I’m not gonna bore you to death in this edition, simply because I’m leaving for vaca tomorrow and you already know how busy life is. But I did want to spend a few and talk about making straight lines.

“Y’all think small, I think Biggie”
– Jay-Z on “Family Feud

Far too often, we focus on what’s ahead. We’re looking at our calendars for what’s coming up, what we need to plan for, and what to expect. Whether it’s tomorrow’s meeting, next week’s social event, or next month’s movie release (there’s a lot more examples), we get caught up. I mean, I know I’m guilty of it. Instead of focusing on what we already have, we’re constantly thinking about what we don’t have. So with this month’s Opinions Column, I wanna focus on something really important…gratitude.

Before we move ahead though, welcome! This is the July 2017 Opinions Column. It’s here that I talk about anything and everything that’s going on with me. For those that’re returning, welcome back! And for those that’re new to the site, glad to have you here. With that said, let’s talk ’bout the topic of this month’s Opinions Column, gratitude, and why it’s so important.
