Small problems have a tendency to invade our minds as we obsess, overthink, stress, and worry about them… Over time, it becomes hard to stop these negative thoughts, and the small problems ultimately end up feeling much bigger than they actually are. However, I have realized that most of the things that are stressful right now wont even matter in a few months, and our brain often over-analyzes situations that are actually quite simple. Everything will be sorted out the way it is suppose to with time, so don’t allow these thoughts and situations to create unnecessary chaos in your daily life. Instead, remind yourself that most of the stress that you are feeling right now is simply a cluster of small problems that the brain has manipulated to feel much bigger than they actually are.

That’s right. I am dabbing in this ballet photo shoot (more to come) to celebrate my amazing experience with blogging and the evolution of Maysa Rose from its birth in 2013! I never thought so many people would genuinely care about all of the random thoughts that I document on this public diary, so I am absolutely astounded with its growth especially within the last year. This space gives me so much joy, and I am incredibly thankful for this site and everyone who reads it!
I began Maysa Rose back in 2013 as a highly talkative fifth grader with an ink pen who filled entire notebooks with stories and poems. My dad recognized this budding passion for writing and he suggested that I begin a blog so that my words could actually be read. I jumped at the opportunity, and I really kept up with blogging before I practically neglected it about a year or two later. After awhile, I decided to pick it back up again, but I didn’t want to start where I left off. I completely redesigned my site and actually deleted all of my old posts to get a clean slate. I started posting very frequently, and I really began to find joy in writing again. Blogging has been my absolute obsession ever since!
I don’t even know where to begin; being the author of Maysa Rose has been such an amazing experience, and it has significantly changed my life for the better. My writing has matured so much through the years, and I have met so many amazing people who continue to inspire me every day. This site is filled with so much positive energy, and the encouragement has really helped me through life’s unpredictable moments. Sometimes, all it takes is ONE positive comment to turn the entire day around, and a couple bloggers have written such beautiful words that I still remember to this very day! I actually cannot recall any offensive or negative comments, so I am very blessed for that. I never imagined that Maysa Rose would grow as much as it has, and I am so thankful for this opportunity to share my passion with the world. Thank you all so much for everything, and I cannot wait to see where this goes from here!!

Whether I am working on my never-ending pile of homework, cleaning, driving, typing up blog posts (hello), or doing practically anything, music is always playing… I have always loved music, but my obsession has grown tremendously within the last year. I am constantly adjusting my playlists, and I love discovering new songs. Today, I decided to share a few of my February favorites in no particular order. There is a pretty large genre range, so I hope you find a song that you like! Enjoy!
Current Top Songs:
*Over You by Daughtry
*1957 by Milo Greene
*Roots by Imagine Dragons

Have you heard any of these songs before? Which one is your favorite? Do you have song suggestions for me?
Music… The mood booster that always ends your day on a good ‘note’…. The influence of your highly off-pitch voice screaming lyrics into your imaginary microphone. You think you are having a great time until you realize all of the windows of your house are open and all of your neighbors can hear you *cough*. ANYWAY, I wanted to dedicate this post to all of those music lovers out there who are always searching for new songs… Enjoy!

Phenomenal… Outstanding… Touching…
My new favorite movie.
I had been wanting to see this for awhile, so I was so excited when my friend invited me to go see this with her a few days ago. The Greatest Showman was very well done, and I think it is one of the best movies that I have seen in a long time. Aside from the film, the soundtrack is amazing, and the songs have such great meaning. I will definitely be watching this again, and I highly encourage you to experience this yourself!
Have you seen this already? What are YOUR thoughts?
It was a long day at the studio, but I am actually energized and ready to watch the national championship game tonight. I do not have a major football obsession, but I do enjoy big games like this.
Alabama VS. Georgia
Who is it going to be?

“I was born to make mistakes, not to fake perfection.”
Why do we spend so much time obsessing about mistakes and being afraid of failure? We place so much unnecessary pressure on ourselves to do things perfectly all the time that we ruin experiences that could be filled with so much joy and happiness. There is never going to be a moment that we are completely flawless, and it is unrealistic to expect ourselves to be. It is important to do the best in everything we can (school, work, dance, life), but we shouldn’t beat ourselves up about every little mistake. Enjoy being YOURSELF. Enjoy Life. Enjoy these fleeting moments, because they don’t last forever. Goodnight everyone. 🙂
Let’s face it, pretty much everyone has a t.v series that they are absolutely obsessed with. Whether it is Grey’s Anatomy, The Walking Dead, The Big Bang Theory, Scandal, Little Big Shots, MasterChef, Dancing with the Stars, Pretty Little Liars, America’s Got Talent, or even Supergirl (just to name a few), there are millions of episodes that people are sure not to miss. To be honest, I am not that big of a couch potato, but there are a few seasonal shows that I am always absorbed in.
So You Think You Can Dance is one of my favorite shows that only comes on during the summer every year, and I pretty much watch every episode of it. Last night, I was watching the recording of day 1 of the Academy, and I was in for a big surprise… With almost 100 dancers, this outdoor celebration dance incorporated every individual style in as little as 3 minutes. The only words that came out of my mouth was, “I have to post this…” 🙂 Enjoy! Hopefully this must-watch boosts your mood and energy this Wednesday morning.
