He who will hold another down in the mud must stay in the mud to keep him down - African Igbo Proverb



Let go of the past and people who remind you of your past



Every day grants a chance to create ourselves afresh to shake off the past, open up to the present moment without being reminded of the past to create an extraordinary future. Accept your history and remember that it does not define you. 

Acceptance is the first step to letting go and setting yourself free. Believe in yourself. Believe in your purpose.  Understand. Take time to reflect on your own history as a third party looking in without judgment: simply observe. Understand that you are not your past. 

Understand that situations and patterns in your life created your experiences they did not create you. Consciously and actively, work at letting go of your story; your judgments and ideals.




How to let go of a toxic person throwing mud at you.

People need people, but sometimes the cost is a heavy one and in that case, let go. Do not stay in mud throwing toxic relationships out of fear of being alone.

Realize its ok to go your separate ways. 

Allow yourself to be sad. 

Do not wallow in hurt and bitterness. 

Do not wait for an apology. 

Focus on your healthy relationships. 

Gather the help of non-mud trowing friends. 

Have less and less contact with the toxic person.

Let yourself move on.

Love not fear

Eastern coasts of Caribbean, United States, and South America, are in danger of being blasted by hurricanes wind and rain during hurricane season from June through November. But, why?  

The scientific reason why is because of Africa’s Sahara desert dust storms and the transition of thunderstorms off the west coast of Africa. The waters in the North Atlantic Ocean are typically at their warmest while the Sahara is at its hottest from July through October, so the chances of a hurricane are highest during these months.
Hurricanes are gigantic weather systems using convection, the movement of hot and cold air, to create dangerous storms. They are rotating heat engines powered by the warmth of tropical waters having three main parts, the eye, the eyewall, and rainbands. 

Hurricanes cannot form just anywhere in the world due to the need for hot and humid air. They normally form close to the equator and move west or northwest. Hurricane Alley is a stretch of warm water through the Atlantic Ocea…

Charging Cell Phones in Rural Africa

The simple task of charging a cell phone is no simple matter in rural African villages far from an electric grid.
With the advent of tiny rooftop solar panels electricity could be accessible to millions.
African governments are struggling to meet to electric needs of the poorest of the poor living in rural areas. 

Living off-grid may be a lifestyle choice to some and a fact of everyday living to the poorest of the poor. However, tiny rooftop solar panels and high-efficiency LED lights across the African continent could provide enough electricity to charge cell phones. 

Cell phones are vital for people in rural areas with no access to banks in order to send and receive money, access medical care and stay in contact with family and friends.
What does Off-Grid Mean? Off the grid (off-grid) means creating your own self-sufficient environment and being able to operate completely independently of all trad…

Survival of the Fattest Meaning
The copper statue Survival of the Fattest by Jens Galschiøt and Lars Calmar was created in 2002. The fat woman is holding a pair of scales as a symbol of justice however; she is closing her eyes so the justice. Galschiot symbolized the woman as being blind, refusing to see the obvious injustice.
For the rich people of the world the main issue in life is that of overeating while people in the third world are dying every day from hunger. 
The misery of imbalanced wealth distribution is creating floods of refugees. However the rich only want to preserve their privileges and take measures so harsh against the poor, they betray their morals …
