At Modern Life Discussions, our articles bring a fresh new perspective to the modern world that we live, work, and play in everyday.  Our goal is to articulate the issues making headlines by delivering a unique outlook and a distinct position which will generate emotion, conversation, critical thought, and response.  We know our lives can be hectic and demanding.  We know our lives can be relaxing and peaceful.  The back-and-forth rigor of our lifestyles create stress, anxiety, pleasure, and reward.  When we couple the current landscape of our society with the constant commotion of the daily grind, we need an outlet to read, process, and think.  Modern Life Discussions offers that opportunity.  “Modern issues. Modern Discussions.”
