I’m Gonna Be Alright


Lately, I’ve been dipping into my “old-school” music library and, naturally, I’ve been having a lot of Jennifer Lopez play in my shuffle.  I may not be the biggest J-Lo fan nowadays, but ten years ago you can believe that I knew just about every word to every song on her album.  However, one of my favorites was always “I’m Gonna Be Alright.”  Yeah, it talks about the traditional feminist idea of a woman not needing a man to survive, but it can easily be applied to anybody’s life.  Even if you doubted yourself to begin with, have some faith and put in a good amount of effort and you can accomplish just about anything.
