Eight Years of Blogging

It is amazing how quickly time goes by. This October will be eight years since I started this blog. I have not always been consistent but I am proud of the fact that I am still here. I have noticed that quite a few bloggers I used to interact with when I started out are no longer around but I have met some new people along the way.

I am making a few small changes to the blog. I will be doing book reviews posting inspirational quotes and keep abreast of current news stories. My goal is blog, and interact with you all in 2019. Let’s make this a fun and exciting year. Happy Blogging!

Adopt a Positive Attitude

“Today is a new day. Leave the past behind. Let go of all negative thoughts. Stop telling yourself that you are not good enough, that you are not worthy enough, and that you are not capable enough. These are the shackles that are holding you back. Leave them by the wayside. Think positively, be confident. There is nothing in life that you cannot accomplish when you believe in yourself.”

Life’s Journey

Life sometimes takes many twists and turns and the way you envisioned it is not always the way things turn out to be. You cannot control the actions of others and often you may face disappointments. However the key is to never let the actions of others determine your happiness. You have this one live so live it to the fullest and make happiness be your main goal.

The Jigsaw Puzzle

I suppose by now you would have heard about the Jussie Smollett alleged attack. There seems to be so many twist and turns to the case and so many things that we don’t know. The more we learn about this story, the more it seems confusing.

Jussie has maintained his innocence and while we may be all quick to condemn him sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction. The story coming from the brothers is conflicting. One report said he paid them to carry out the act another said the money he paid was for training. So what is the true story. Did Jussie piss someone off and this is an elaborate plan of theirs to destroy his career?

I am trying to rationalize and make sense of this because so far nothing is making sense except Jussie seems guilty. However what if he isn’t? As I said before the truth is sometimes stranger than fiction. What is the true story?

Where is the Love

It is sad the way we as humans treat one another. The lack of respect for human life is having devastating effects all around the world. People take the lives of others with no thought of the pain they cause and the problem is the good people die while the evil ones live.

Let us be our brother’s keeper. Let us look out for each other for no one is immune from the danger of those who come to plunder and kill. Last week my hometown lost one of its best, a man who spent his entire life serving his community. He was a gentle soul, a kind hearted person who people could go to for help. His death has left a huge void. My prayer is that his murderer will be brought to justice.

View’s About Women

From A Man’s Perspective

Recently I came across a Facebook video of a man sharing his views about the growing nudity displayed by women. He voiced his concern that woman are not taking pride in themselves any more and seem to think they have to walk around half-naked to catch the eyes of a man. He warns that they will attract attention but from the wrong men and that they should take more pride in themselves because a man can spot a good woman from a distance even if she is fully clothed.

I am noticing this growing trend of women wearing less and less and I feel sad that women feel they have to go to this level in order to feel attractive. Women please be reminded that respect begins with you.
