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!

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.12899473_10154119312161340_1499827085_o            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.”

12935326_10154119312126340_469260903_n
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.”

Are You Materialistic?

Do you ever wonder why we buy many things,  but in the end we find that it does not make us happy.
Ah, materialimoney-root-of-evilsm.  Materialism consumes us from meme-thinking-face-1920x1080the
clothes we wear, products we choose to buy, technology we choose to use, and more!

Materialism is: “a way of thinking that gives too much importance to material possessions rather than to spiritual or intellectual things”

divider-2 Why Do We Value Material Possessions So Much?

number-one Power & Status
The more money you have, it equals to a higher status in life, but this comes at a $price$, which you’d have to spend a lot to show a lot. Is it worth it? You may be a victim to the dollar bill, or coin. Money can also become an addiction. It is the root of all evil.

2NumberTwoInCircle  We Think The Grass is Greener On The Other Side
You see someone who has it all, and they seem so happy having it all.  You start to think their life is genuinely better than yours. NEVER judge a book by its cover. You don’t know what problems they may be facing.

500px_3numberthreeincirclesvg_answer_3_xlargeCommercial Conditioning
Media brain washes people into thinking that if you don’t have a certain item, you are missing out. They even make people think that if they don’t obtain these possessions, they won’t be as happy. They make you find connections between that product & happiness. How cruel they trap us.

download (2)   It Makes Us Feel Better. FILLING VOIDS
When some are feeling down, they shop to fill voids. Retail therapy. Well, buying things you like can sure ease your moment of sadness, and stress, but once you don’t need that item, or desire it the way you use to…guess what, you’re going to start to feel sad…& stressed…again…yup…sigh.

download (3)  We Just Want to Fit In
Everyone has some sort of social media network. We are always looking at what other individuals have. There is the pressure to have the top brands. In some social circles, if you don’t keep up with a certain lifestyle, you just won’t be a part of it anymore, and if you don’t have the funds, it sure is going to make your bank account plummet.   If only we could look beyond what everyone had, and just look at their character, and personalities. Wouldn’t the world be richer?

orig-19456771Do you think you’re materialistic, or just want to limit yourself so you’re not consumed by materialism?
Here’s some advice.
arrow-pointing-down-inside-a-circle-outline_318-41083

Get rid of the clutter. Get rid of your possessions you do not need. Things you may desire now, may not be desired later.

Life is short. In the end, your possessions do not follow you to the grave. Live life to the fullest. EXPERIENCE LIFE.

Be grateful. Make a list of what you already have.  It’s the small pleasures in life we enjoy the most.

Find meaning in the items you want, or already have. Is/was it worth it?

Who said?

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.

Getting bullied, beauty,and staying strong

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?

Start 2016 with knowing your circle

2016. 2016 just happened, and I had felt like I lost so much in this small amount of time. Confusion, betrayal, hurt, pain, but forgiveness. I don’t have much friends, but understand this…you do not need the world of friends! People will let you down. This is something to remember, and always keep in mind. Man=humans=DISAPPOINTMENT. Last year and now, I have lost a lot of people I had been close to. There comes a time in your life where you have to re-evaluate who is in your life. Who is using you for your positive kind warm heart, and who is so miserable their toxicity just drains you. Does someone only contact you when they need something? Does your friends abandon you in times of despair? Do your friends just use you for support, but do not do the same for you? Who is in your circle? I’ll tell you this though. Find some friends that love and care for you. Find friends who would be that shoulder to cry on, and not laugh at your pain. Find friends who respect every level of your being. You need friends that have ambition, goals, and are going somewhere. If your friend is constantly nagging you about their “crappy” life, then that will get to you. You’ll start to think your life is also crap. ENERGY IS TRANSFERABLE= ENERGY IS CONTAGIOUS. Hang with the happy crowd. Talk to someone who inspires you, pushes you, loves you, cares for you.

Take 2016 to be a year of beautiful memories to be made with beautiful people. Don’t you deserve to be happy? Don’t you deserve to have amazing people in your life..because you’re amazing and never settle for less. If someone hurts you, let them go. The best revenge is to destroy them with a smile. Don’t let peoples negative actions impact you.

Know who’s around you, and know your circle.

Think about it.

Some days you’ll be so happy, and some days you’ll be questioning everything. Essentially some days are good, and some days may seem so bad. The beauty of it all is that even if you may seem like the world is crashing down, take a few deep breathes and try to feel a sense of peace. Once you think about everything that you cherish, and that makes you happy (even the smallest littlest things, moments, and people) everything is actually alright, and will be fine. It isn’t the worst thing that could ever happen and just remember everything you go through is a life experience that makes you grow. Let experiences make you better not bitter. Always strive to be positive because our negative thoughts are our comfort zones. We are so use to thinking negative outcomes and situations that we don’t realize we can change our way of thinking. Always think about the best even in the hardest times because you are your own drive to a better you, and a better way of life. Happiness is key. Happiness is what we should all aim for. If you feel like you are in your darkest days switch those thoughts around. Find the light in your life whether it be god, a lover, an activity, a TV series, and more! Never give up. Talk to someone about it. Energy is transferable so maybe it can be the people you are around. It’s a lifestyle change that everyone should think about. A positive way of life is a happy way of life.

Think about it.

People don’t change.

People don’t change.

I use to cry so much over one person. I use to hurt so much over one person. I was told they would change, they would respect me, they would care, but that change never came. I never met someone who just took the love they received, and never showed it back. Why was I was dependent on someone who never loved, or cared for me, but enjoyed the love and care I was showing them. Was I being used for what I offered? I will never understand the complete truth on what happened, but all I know is that as much as you beg, no one will EVER change for you. People only change for themselves, and if they do not see fit, they have no reason to change themselves even when it comes to the ones they supposedly love. There is no love if there is no respect, care, appreciation, support and more. Don’t be a fool to someone who treats you like crap because you’ll forever be stepped on. If they can treat you bad the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd time…common isn’t it obvious? If someone truly cares for you, this mistake wouldn’t repeat it self. Do not let anyone take advantage of the chances you have given them, do not let them take advantage of you. It takes time to heal, but getting out that cycle is worth it. Know your worth. Let this experience make you grow into a wiser person, but not a bitter person. Maybe your own experiences will allow you to see an opportunity to change yourself to be stronger emotionally, and mentally.Image

What have we done?

What have we done?

All of social media is clouded in the darks with sexual content, the stripping of females, and just preposterous things.…things that our own society accepts? Is this what our generation, and generations to come will receive and communiate? Females! Do not fear a lack of attention because stripping down does not make us prettier, it does prove anything, but show the world your temple, your body. The people watching you will not love you for you, but for your body. The wrong doing will attract the wrong attention, and the wrong people. What will you say in 20 years when you look back? Where is the strength to not conform to the sexual image of society. Is this what our female generations have turned to? Nothing but a object, a tool, enterainment for men? Some say it’s a man’s world, but look at what drags a man to his own addictions, and knees, and pain…females. We’re empowering this world in the wrong ways. How can a twerking video, a porn video, a stripping video, a DEGRADING video maintain millions of views, but when there are issues in this world, everyone turns a blind eye to them?

What have we done?

A world full of sexual content, a world that is divided, a world so unequal that our stubbornness, and our own intelligence cannot break through this dilemma, but we encourage it. Women fought hard to be equal in the western world. Is this what we’ve done, fought to be equal, but to just degrade ourselves? How powerful are we when we can only bring a man down to his own sexual desires and not power a world of young females to strive for the better, and strive for more than they can ever achieve. What has society done. Our own peers. Our own children. Our own family. Our own people of this earth. Future generations.

What have we done?

 

Find love within

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. Image

Discover your love, and fill your own heart.

Myself

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.

Light to the darkness

Heartache.

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.

“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!
