Smile. Just smile : )
Love? What is love?
Love is kind, love is sharing
Is love felt in the way everyone feels?
Love has no boundaries
Love has no flaws
Love is beautiful
Love is evergoing
Love is stronger than the battles we face
Love is more pure than the water we taste
Love is something more… something one day I hope we can understand
Love is impecible
Love is so incredible it heals a broken heart, and fills you with immense feelings of happiness
Love builds strong pillars to hold us down
Love is God
Love is in us all
I hope love always prevails
And I hope we all understand the power of love

Isaiah Williams is just 19 years old, and chasing his dreams! He is an Actor, Model, and Music Artist. He was raised outside of the Down-Town Toronto Area. Isaiah’s motto is that he doesn’t want to work hard for just the money, but he has the passion, and love for music. Isaiah Williams isn’t new to the music, and acting scene! When he was younger, he was in commercials for big companies, such as Coco-Cola, and Huggies.
His genre of music is hip-hop, and rap with a little bit of R&B. Mr. Williams willbe working on a more flavourful upbeat mix-tape with all kinds of radio, and party music. STAY TUNED. The #1 artist that inspires Isaiah Williams is Drake because of their similar childhood. Drake helps youth grow towards their dream, and Isaiah respects that, which motivates him even more to get out there to follow his dreams. Isaiah Williams says, “Chasing your dream is fun. It puts fire in your heart because you realize how bad you want something that hasn’t happened for you yet, but dreams do come true, and there will always be haters trying to stop you. They will try, and bring you down, but you have to hold your head high, and keep going.” He wants to inspire other youth as well, He wants to show them that no matter where, or how you grew up (rich, or poor), it just takes effort to meet the right people, and end up in the right places.
He says, “you have to be careful nowadays when it comes to who you call your friends, but I love my family to the moon and back, and they’re my biggest inspiration in everything I do.”
Everyone has there personal issues and personal struggles, whether it’s school, work, friends, haters or financial. He’s learnt as he’s matured, and realized that no matter what stresses him, the show must go on. “You have to flick that dirt off your sh
oulders, and hold a great big smile across your face.”
Isaiah Williams has learnt to eliminate toxic people from his life, and kept busy, which made him more productive. “Not everybody will believe in you at first, even some of my own family members told me I wasn’t good enough to succeed in the music/acting industry. I can tell you their answers changed when they seen me start to make moves.”
His goals are to pursue his music, and acting career. He wants to inspire youth by going to their middle, and high-schools to talk about confidence, ambition, and giving back to the community since he will be doing that.
Isaiah Williams advice –> “Patience is key, and nothing happens over night.”

Upcoming recording artist/beat maker from Toronto, Canada is breaking right into the music scene.
Check out his latest track: –> Dope Nasty <–
Nightmare Nasty has inspired himself to take on his dreams, and make it into reality. As a kid, he always had a fascination with poetry, which transitioned into writing verses, and choruses. He felt like he was in his own little world every time he wrote lyrics; it was like his own sanctuary. Growing up, he wanted to be a cartoonist, but when Nightmare Nasty was 12 years of age, he decided to create music.
Nightmare Nasty’s tracks, and music are inspired by artists, such as Lloyd Banks, Drake, and Stromae. His music fits into the genre of Hip-Hop with a mix of Ambient/Atmospheric sounds. What inspired this artist was living in the city of Toronto. “I live and breath the city through my music”. Nightmare Nasty wants to inspire young teens to follow their dreams. Following his dreams came with hardships, but what motivates him the most is getting through hard times, and success following through.
One of the struggles he has been through was being an Indie artist from Toronto. He’s had a lot of experience dealing with artists, producers, etc. and he got to know people’s real intentions. “It’s a dirty business but you learn to separate the opportunists from the real supporters. Beats, features, music videos, and all that kind of stuff comes out of my own pocket”. It’s all a part of the struggle, but Nightmare Nasty wouldn’t change it for the world. “The independent music hustle is no joke that’s for sure”.
Nightmare Nasty has experienced discrimination because of the colour of his skin, and nationality. People used to tell him that he shouldn’t make music because he was brown skinned. He said, “I remember a time when NOBODY took me serious because of my nationality”. To overcome hardships Nightmare Nasty had to ask himself if the music scene was really what he wanted to do. “I knew this life wouldn’t be easy. I get discouraged at times, but I constantly remind myself why I’m doing it, and the positivity I can bring from sharing this music with the world”.
Nightmare Nasty’s advice:
“I have days when I feel discouraged. We all go through it, but life has a strange way of teaching you important lessons. My way of pushing through my obstacles is constantly reminding myself of how important music is to me. My passion for music won’t allow me to quit. I feel like I owe it to myself to follow my dreams”.

Do you want to be more emotionally intelligent? It’s quite easy & and improving your emotional intelligence can be done anytime in your life-time.
Here are some quick and easy tips:
Be Honest With Yourself
You know you’re feeling a type of way, but you deny it. People may ask you how you feel, and you tell them you’re doing okay when you’re not. Be honest, and open up. This is a part of being yourself, and learning to understand, and control your feelings.
Understand The Feeling of Others
How do you react when someone is sad, mad, happy, etc? Understand other people’s body language because sometimes we are not able to see past their words, but their body language gives off their true feelings. Are you more negative, and not understanding towards someone when they are feeling down? Do you put yourself in other peoples shoes? It’s good to communicate to a close family member, or friend to help you see what some of your reactions are, and how you can improve because we are not always aware of our own actions/reactions.
Look at both sides of the coin:
We are strong to our opinions, and values. When someone does not agree with us it can alter how we feel by making us feel upset, and aggravated. If you are ever in this type of situation, do not get upset, but try to understand why they agree, and think this way. Look at both sides of a story. Also, if you don’t agree with how someone feels, try to understand the different factors that could be making them feel like this. Always ask questions
Don’t let our minds control us, we control our minds:
We are human so we realize we have these emotions, and feelings. We can’t stop ourselves from feeling, but we have the power in ourselves to decide how to react to how we feel. For example, someone says something to upset you, and you’re use to attacking back, and saying something to hurt them. This is where your emotional intelligence will kick in. Try taking deep breathes, and taking a moment to understand the situation. There are others ways to address an issue instead of lashing out. Always remember that something that does not make you angry, or sad the nextdsay is not worth dwelling, or thinking about. It is just a temporary feeling.

Am I not aware…. of today’s society, or just not educated enough?
Is it just me, or do most women mostly have strong influences on the fashion and beauty industries, but tell me how many women are out there expressing their voices and opinions of things other than that?
I’m not saying expressing yourself through fashion is bad, but is there not more than the physicals of life? How many are motivating and inspiring other women, but not by the make-up and the clothes they share on social media, but beyond what the eye can see. What’s going on? Are we deemed to impress? Are we really free?
Do we take our rights of being equal into account? Do we strive to do more than just entertain the eyes of the young, the eyes of men and the eyes of many who don’t appreciate the complexity and beauty of our inner-selves? Why can’t some of our passions be more than to just decorate the physical body, but decorate the character of our souls and minds? Will this all take time?
Can you see past my image, but read deeply into the heart of my words because my soul is inside where my voice could not be heard. Are we not more than the beauty and clothes that we wear?
Let’s be real.
Anxiety is experienced by everyone at different times. No need to put others down if they’re in distress. Be there for one another. Make your communities strong. You are not alone. We have each other.
BUT…wait…What’s anxiety though?
WEB DEFINTION ”a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome”
So you’re saying anxiety happens when we feel as though a dangerous outcome may occur.
Hmm…let’s break it down.
Basically anxiety is made up of:
THOUGHTS (Think) x BODY SENSATIONS (Feel) x ACTIONS (Do)
- THOUGHTS of anything that can possibly go wrong (negative thoughts, doubts,etc)
- BODY SENSATIONS of feeling weak, dizzy, the sweats, numb, pain in the chest, your hearts activity, etc
- ACTIONS we project from being anxious, such as hyperventilating, biting of nails, avoiding situations/people, ritualistic behaviours (WHAT in the world? Basically things we do a lot without being aware i.e. safe routes, safe clothes, comfort foods, checking the time)
So now we know the basics of what anxiety is…
HOW CAN WE COPE WITH ANXIETY?
When we essentially start to think that something bad is going to happen, we tend to over-think about it. STOP OVER-THINKING! This brings in a toxic mind with toxic thoughts. Do you really want this kind of energy?
Counter these thoughts with questions like:
- What’s the worst thing that can happen? (But…did you die? Not to sound rude, but that kind of is the worst possible thing to happen)
- I’m thinking all these negative thoughts, and I remember being in this situation before. So what did I do about it? What can I do about it? Always find solutions. Always overcome your obstacles. Be brave. Be strong!
2. BE AWARE. ALWAYS PUSH FORWARD, NOT BACKWARDS.
Learn to face what you’re fearing. BE AWARE. How did you start to become anxious? Who, What Where, When, Why, and How? Always challenge yourself. Step out of your comfort zone. NOTHING GROWS IN YOUR COMFORT ZONE EXCEPT MISERY.
Remember, it takes time to overcome obstacles. Be patient with yourself.
Easy steps for self development and growth:
- What is the problem?
- Find (I suggest type/write/audio record) solutions to that problem.
- Set goals on how to overcome this problem with your solution.
- Work on those goals. Never stop putting in that work. Nothing comes easy.
- If there was no success the first time, then change your solutions, or change your goals, and try again. You are here for a reason, and it’s to overcome and become a stronger you.
3. TAKING CARE OF YOURSELF. KEEP BUSY.
- Find a hobby you like. Learn something new. You have one life, go ahead and live it. Find things that interest you and pursue them.
- Take your mind off of what is bothering you. Put some music on. Go for a walk, or go to the gym. There are also group work-out sessions at gyms.
- Get enough sleep every night. With a lack of sleep, people tend to feel more anxious.

I can’t get up.
My sorrows are so heavy that I’m not so tough.
How did I get to be like this?
All I want to be is lifted, & all I wanted was bliss.
I can’t stand this feeling anymore.
I want to be free, and I want to do me!
I’m breaking my chains that keep me grounded.
Nothing will stop me now because today is my day.
I will no longer be bounded…
To the sorrows that keep me in jail &
To everyone who said I would fail!
I am free, & I am me.
I will succeed , just wait & see.
I can get up.
My sorrows are not so heavy .
I am to live this one life I have, and nothing can stop me.
I have learnt that life is filled with ups & downs, but keep your head held high with a beautiful crown.
Just take that first step & trust in oneself because one day you’ll look back & be so happy you took the time to invest in yourself
I am free, & I am me.
I will succeed , just wait & see.
Who said you couldn’t do it?
You are capable of doing anything. Put your all and all into something. Do not fear. Things are not easy at first, but will be easier in the end. Never let anyone crush your dreams, and goals. Don’t give up. You can do this. There will be people who won’t support you. There will be people out there who will ridicule you, and bring toxic words, and thoughts into your mind. Be strong. You are capable. You are strong.
Who said you couldn’t do it? Let’s prove them wrong.
I remember growing up it was really painful. Painful experiences. Not everyone I met in my life was nice to me. Society is strange. We have to look a certain way to be accepted. I did certainly not look that certain way, and nor did I care especially when I was a young child in elementary, middle, and high school. I always got teased about something. I felt as though people were always out to get me. If it wasn’t one thing, it would be something, anything, and damn was it annoying. My confidence fell. Insecurities built up into my soul. I was emotionally wrecked. I felt alone. I felt scared. I felt ugly inside, and out. Classmates, my own friends, teachers, and random students in the school would bully me about my looks. The thing that kept me from going insane was telling myself…”Hey…this won’t last. They won’t have control over me…and this is just a bad day, not a bad life”. I always thought I had like some ugly duckling turning into a swan situation of life, but it’s people. People can be cruel, disgusting, hateful, and insecure themselves. I was a beautiful kid with a huge heart. I will never change my heart. I always want to remain the same. I wasn’t ugly, it was media. I just would tell myself, I forgive you all…I was probably 16 when everything changed. I had the people who made fun of me, start to talk to me. I was extremely hateful. I hated those people. I thought they were so fake. I didn’t want them in my life. I thought that…if they couldn’t accept me before so why are you accepting me now. I didn’t think they were worth my time at all because I was never worth theirs. Growing up with all these experiences, and now having the unwanted attention of men and women… I didn’t like it at all. All this attention doesn’t make me feel good about myself. I feel good about myself because I make myself feel great. I am confident in myself, and don’t need people to make me feel low, or high about anything. Forgiveness is key (If you do not forgive, it is like drinking your own poison that infects and kills your soul slowly). I forgave. I learnt, and moved on. There’s a quote from the bible…”Dust you are, and dust you shall return”. We all will die and have the same gravestones. Get what I mean? You can dress up, look great, have all the things in the world, but guess what..we all end up in the same place. Stay humble. stay compassionate. Don’t hurt others in order to get them to feel your pain. Don’t fall to peer pressure to become a mean girl/boy, bully, or anything. Always, ALWAYS, put yourself in others shoes because if you realize what you’re doing may not be the right thing if it was happening to you, than it won’t be for others.
I wish this world could just love each other. I wish there wasn’t hate, and cruel issues among us. The real fact is that there will always be these issues, and there will always be those people who won’t be nice to you, but do not join them and become one of them. Be different. Be you. Brush aside comments. They do not have control over how you feel. Like the movie the Revenant says “Leave revenge up to the creator”. BTW go watch that movie it’s amazing.
STAY HUMBLE. STAY BEAUTIFUL. BEAUTY IS IN OUR SOUL. STAY BLESSED. STAY STRONG. YOU ARE LOVED. IGNORANCE IS BLISS. SO MUCH HATE IN THIS WORLD WHY JOIN IN?
Love is what drives us to happiness, to insanity, to laughter, and to madness. Is this love for life, or is it for temporary pleasure purposes for ones own greedy heart. Is this love for our own self, or to spread love to another. How can we love when
we want love for our own self? How do you even feel love? Do we even know? Heart-ache: is it worth the time?
Is there a love out there that does not pain, a love out there that does not lack in any elements.
Seek what we love, but our love seeks and lacks in many aspects.
To conquer love is to conquer ourselves. To love our own-self, to trust our own self, and then you must share with your own self this love in order to obtain happiness and a deep connection of love with another. To find love is to discover your own heart
Discover what fills your heart, but emptiness will find your heart, if you seek love. We should not seek from another, but ourselves, and then our heart will beat louder, and everything will come to pass. Your drive to madness will ease because happiness will fill your beautiful heart. Then you won’t wonder, but accept what everyones saying, “You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”
Because self-love is forever. Self-love is strong. No more seeking, no more dreaming, find the love that is hidden in the shadows of your heart. Expand upon the meaning of your love, expand upon the beauty of your heart.
Expand upon yourself, your aspects and elements of your love, and happiness.
Discover your love, and fill your own heart.
As I lay in bed on my side, I gripped both my hands together realizing,
I’m not alone. I have me.
I have myself, and that’s all I ever needed to be strong was me.
And It felt so good to just lay knowing my inner self, and inner strength.
All along it was just me.
Shard of glass punctured my soul. Deep within my heart, I have nothing but a hole.
Searching for a way out, like a teardrop withering from my face. It escapes; the tear escapes its confinement. Can this really be out of control? The pain it’s surreal. What is this misery that has found its path to my mind and my way of life. This isn’t me, this is death of the heart and the soul, release me from this, to find my goals.
My way is clouded by the thoughts that confine me to the negativity. Darkness feels safe, but oh does it feel wonderful to feel its embrace. Have I gone over, is it to late now? Pull me out; I’m trying my hardest to pull myself out of the dark.
Drawing toward the light, Oh light brighten my soul, and please brighten my life. Warmth spreads through my mind, and my body radiates the sunlight. Oh, does it shine, taking its beautiful time
I’m out, I’m out. The shard is out, and my heart is safe from the hate of my own mind.
How dare I stray? Curse these feelings that found its way. I’m free from hate. I’m free from it all. I can live and see myself breaking these walls.
I forgive my heart, my mind and my soul. Lets be stronger and feel our own control.
Do you have what it takes to make your heart whole
Live in your own freedom, and fill your own soul.
“You are responsible for your own happiness. If you expect others to make you happy, you will always be disappointed.”
I use to depend on someone to make my happiness come true and when they left me I never felt so alone. Heartbreak filled my heart. Emptiness filled my soul. What was life without my other half? Why did it all happen to me? Was God taking away my happiness, but for what reason? I felt like there was no reason to wake up, get out of bed… What was holding me back? Even after months I found myself zoning out, staring into space and not knowing why. It was like the longing feeling was so immensely pained in my heart that it held my soul from being free, from experiencing the world and it’s beauty and cruelty.
I had to change my ways, my thoughts my demeanor, my LIFE. This quote gets at people because we expect so much from other people. And WHY? We should not expect love, happiness, and care from other people. We need to have this self-respect for ourselves. We make ourselves happy and in time the right people will be placed in our lives. Why worry, why stress, and why feel alone? Everything will fall into place, and if it is not now, then it will be sooner, or later. Life is beautiful, and free. When we’re alone we should enjoy the peace, the tranquility and the space we have. Fill that longing, start fresh, start new and just develop yourself to be a great person! You should depend on yourself, and have expectations for yourself, but hey, in this world you did enter alone right?
Learn to love being alone, learn to love, and grow happiness within. Love yourself, FALL IN LOVE with YOU! Tell yourself you’re the best. Look in the mirror and go ahead, wink at yourself, be silly jus fall in love with the person you are, and will be. Never let yourself down, and if you do just forgive, grow and learn from every experience because these experience just make you wiser and stronger. Let us love, and let us start now. I love me, and you love you therefore we LOVE! Its crazy, but guess what, I know who loves you and it’s you baby!
