[INTERVIEW] POSITIVE VIBES WITH I’JAH

1. What is your name and where are you from?
2. My name is I’Jah Anderson, and I’m from Houston, Texas a very fast paced city, it’s very big and you can miss a lot if you’re not paying ATTENTION.

2. How did you find peace and tranquility in life?
I find peace by meditation, staying positive, balancing my chakras and surrounding myself with good vibrations and energies.

3. What is one thing you want to be improved in your community?
The improvements I would like for my community is just the uplifting of one another. Supporting each other more instead of degrading, belittling and undermining people’s feelings.

4. Compared to a year ago, what changes have you seen in your personal life?
Oh wow! I have witnessed a lot of changes, not just in my personal life but my personal growth as well. I can say it’s amazing!

5. Is it easy to connect to other people with positive energy?
Yes, very easy! Positivity is what makes the world go round. It’s just we don’t see enough of it to actually change the world but I personally think it could be done with just the faith of a mustard seed.

6. How can people find you online?
I can be found mostly on Facebook or Instagram… my Facebook is under my name I’Jah Anderson and my ig: @universoulgoddess_

7. What would you tell someone one who wants to quit in life ? My personal advice since I have been on that road so many times is:  DON’T GIVE UP! You are not a quitter. you didn’t make it this far quitting and you can’t see how AMAZING your future will be if you just give up now. Nothing is easy but EVERYTHING worth having is worth fighting for!

8. Any shoutouts? I want to give a shoutout to my beautiful Mother for always loving and supporting me as well as just being the mother she was to raise me, in which she did.

9. Any advice for those looking for positive energy?
Positive energy is everywhere around you but first you must think positivity within you. Your thoughts become reality so if all your thinking is negativity you will be surrounded by nothing but negative energy and vibrations. Think positive, speak positive and positivity will take over you in an abundance of ways!

10. What is your definition of a hustler? A hustler is someone who knows how to take what they have an make something out of nothing. Someone who is willing to exalt all resources to get the job done.

[OP-ED] HOLLY BROOKS: WE CAN’T UNDO OUR MISTAKES

Words from model/ rapper, Holly Brooks.

 

We all wish we could undo a few things. I personally have more than a million situations that fit that M.O. But, this is definitely the right way of thinking. “Hold on before you get all bent out of shape.” Making a conscious note of our mistake is definitely a good thing. Wearing the feeling of guilt on our back is not. If we have come to believe or see we have made a mistake take a mental note of that mistake. Embrace it, soak in the feeling, now put that thought and feeling in your memory bank and hold it dear. That is how we build consciousness and grow as individuals. If we remember the hurt, pain, misery, delay, and turmoil that mistake cause us, we will most like never make that mistake again. If so we then use the same method each time and we will most likely break that habit very quickly. Except those of us who like putting ourselves though mischief and need the sympathy or pity from others. For those of us who want and yearn to grow, develop, and not fall back into the same situation over and over again blaming others, we take that note and put in the most secure place in our memory bank and say what’s next. We think, how can I move on, and not let this affect us to the point we can’t live a generally happy and fulfilling life. Mistakes definitely change things, mostly for the worst but, sometimes for the better. But prospective change them for us. Prospective is the thought we put into evaluating a situation.  Guilt is the feeling we wear because of how we choose to perceive that situation. Getting to the point when we make a mistake we shouldn’t take it out on other or ourselves. We should take a note of it, secure it in your memory bank, make ourselves aware and conscious of all the things we don’t like about the mistake and how it affect us then make a logical plan to deal with the mistake appropriately … We shouldn’t let anyone nor ourselves manipulate us into feeling guilty for that mistake. Keep in mind we can only consider it a mistake when we have no knowledge of the affects on us or others
