We had the good fortune of connecting with Jeremy Hall and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jeremy, what are you inspired by?
I am inspired by my father Thomas Hall Sr. and my mentor/teacher. They both provided me with insight on how to live and how to treat others by counseling and mentorship.

Also, seeing the beauty in life has inspired me so much as well. In the midst of WAR, POVERTY, SUFFERING, and other things, when an individual focus on the positive by acknowledging the negative aspects of life, one can create the balance between the two by virtue of focusing and dedicating themselves to their individual purpose.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Currently I am a spiritual counselor and I proud of the outcome of individuals whom benefit from my mentor/counseling mechanisms. What sets me apart from others is simple, it is my individual journey and experience. We all have different, but yet similar experiences, and that is true, however my experience has been unique because of the choice I made. Back in 2012, I lost my father which brought me into a depressing journey. Six months after losing my father, I lost my second oldest brother which was a huge tragedy especially after we had just buried our father. However my mentor Al Sufi counseled me and provided me with wisdom along with words of encouragement which pulled me out of the darkness which I was in. So life for me overall has had its ups and downs, but because of the teachings, guidance, and my understanding of life in general, I was able to carry on. Important lessons that I’ve learned was to accept individuals and circumstances as they are and don’t try to change anyone nor anything. Acknowledge your experiences, but to stay dedicated and true to self. I want the world to know that no matter how hard life gets, you can prevail and the only way to be successful is to find your purpose in life and become your very best at that purpose. Rather if it is a skill, hobby, helping individuals, teaching, et cetera. Once you find meaning to your life and you get a sense of fulfillment, everything else falls in it’s rightful place.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
This is a difficult one. One of the places I would take a friend to is the Dallas Art Gallery. It is an amazing experience and has such unique artwork that puts your mind in an imaginary state. The experience is filled with peace, bliss, imaginations, and so much more. Another spot would be Spiral Diner & Bakery in Fort Worth, TX close to Magnolia Ave. The Vegan options are amazing and the food is so delicious. Most importantly, the customer service and the good vibes is something that you’ll never forget. I am a tea person and I love herbal teas, so I would encourage a friend to try out some of the tea at “The Cultured Cup” in Farmers Branch, TX. The tea and coffee there is amazing and they sell loose leaf teas. The staff is very kind, knowledgeable, and respectful. Also the experience is phenomenal.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Wow, this is a tough one so I will simplify it by giving a shout out to everyone whom has inspired me and supported me along the way which has been a lot of people! However my classmate Antonio “Bonito Drinks” supported me over the years and I want to thank him for referring me to you all. My father Thomas Hall Sr. whom is no longer with us “RIP” paved the way for me to succeed by paying my way through college and providing me with an opportunity to start a new life with the help of my amazing mother Doris Hall. Additionally, I would like to thank my teacher “Al Sufi” for introducing me to knowledge and wisdom and for instructing me on how to live a honorable life and how to evolve and be my very best in life. Without him, I would not have continued my journey that my father prepared me for. Last, but not least, I want to give a shout out to all of the students whom I met and interacted with a the University that I use to work for in Dallas. These young adults really provided me with great support and I learned a great deal from them all. I realized the potential I had within me my the experience and challenges that I faced, but overall it was such a great experience because of the students ensuring that I stayed focused to better myself while helping them and others.

Thank you all!
