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.

“We unstoppable, so everything is possible”
– Xzibit on “Focus

One thing I’ve come to notice, especially in recent months, is how many distractions surround us. Whether it’s other people, other responsibilities, or *ehem* social media, there are so many things that pull us in different directions. Did I mention social media? Lol. Yeah, it’s easy to get distracted and lose sight of what you were doing in the first place. During times like these, it’s important to get back on track and focus. Not just any kinda focus though…laser focus.

Before we get ahead of ourselves though, welcome back to the Opinions Column. This is where I talk about anything and everything going on in my life. For those that’re new to the site, welcome and glad to have you visit. For those returning, y’all know the drilly! And with that, let’s talk about the importance of LASER focus.

“Ahead of my time like I live my whole life backwards”
– J. Cole on “Dead Presidents II

It seems like nowadays, time comes at a premium. When we were kids, it was easy. Responsibilities were minimal and we could have all the fun we wanted. Fast forward to today, and it seems like there’s always something to do. I don’t quite know when this shift occurred, but it’s reality now. And so, with all that life throws at us, it’s so important to manage time efficiently.

Welcome to the May 2017 Opinions Column. It is here that we can keep up and you’ll hear about what’s on my mind. For those returning, welcome back. And for those that’re new to the site, welcome as well. And with that said, let’s talk about the importance of time management.
