Hurricane Irma

“When you face difficult times, know that challenges are not sent to destroy you. They are sent to promote, increase, and strengthen you…”

~Joel Osteen

When we are faced with bad situations, we often find ourselves questioning, “how could GOD ever allow this to happen?” We become angry at the Lord, as we look around at the stormy skies surrounding us. The fact is, we will never completely understand GOD’s plan for our lives, but we must remember that everything happens for a reason. Hurricane Irma may brought structural damage, but it has also washed ashore a whole new reminder that we are a team. So many people from multiple countries have come together to protect/ assist each other with this storm. Don’t ever forget that there is a very good reason for this, even if it is unclear at the moment. Be positive and safe as we continue to recover from this disaster.

“When you go through deep waters. I will be with you.”

~Isaiah 43:2

Long Weekend

arabesquetoday

As much as I love dancing the amount that I do, it always feels great to take a few days off to let my body recover… It feels so good to sleep in, knowing that I have the whole day to sit around and do absolutely nothing. I love uneventful days when they come around, because those kinds of days happen only a few times throughout the year. I am going to head out of state tonight with my family to take advantage of this long Labor Day weekend. We are heading up into the mountains, so I will be SURE to snap a few pictures for all of my photography lovers out there. πŸ˜‰ As of right now, I need to start packing…

Wishing safe travels for all others who are traveling this weekend!!

Beautiful mindset= Beautiful day!

“A beautiful day begins with a beautiful mindset. When you wake up, take a second to think about what a privilege it is to simply be alive & healthy. The moment we start acting like life is a blessing, I assure you it will start to feel like one.”

Wishing you all a fantastic Wednesday! πŸ™‚

Snow Queen Casting!!!!!

pointeshoes

I am extremely humbled to share that I have received a principal role in this year’s Christmas production… I will be portraying a girl who looses her brother to the almighty Snow Queen and goes on a frozen adventure to return him home. I Am Gerda. This will be my very first main role in a ballet, so I am incredibly honored to have been trusted with this responsibility.

*This weekend, you will find me in front of the television watching the movie and getting a better understanding of the plot… I know that the ballet may change a bit, but at least I will have the general idea. To be completely honest with you, I have never heard of the Snow Queen until now, so I think that it will be helpful to have at least SOME background knowledge (whether it is 100% accurate or not). Aside from that, I think that it is going to be neat to see how the movie and ballet will differ… Have a great weekend!

Life’s Garden

Although you may not enjoy those days where the tears fall from the sky, it is how life’s garden grows. It happens so that you can bloom into the best you can be.”

It’s Coming…

palmtrees

The TOTAL solar eclipse 2017 is coming… Many people are unaware of how damaging this phenomenon can be if you do not take the proper precautions. In reality, this is a very big deal. I am going to stay indoors to protect myself and my family from this event. We may be crowded around the television to watch it, but I personally don’t want to loose my vision forever by being physically exposed to the eclipse. Please note that many people have bought the ‘special glasses’ that are suppose to completely protect your eyes, but MANY of these glasses have been recalled from the market because they had proven to be ineffective.

The decision is yours… Will you take the risk?

Olive is ‘on the roof’ that it is FRIDAY!!!

It has been a very busy first week back, and I am quite relieved that the weekend has finally arrived… Let’s just say that it is going to feel great to sleep in tomorrow morning! Wishing you all an awesome weekend!!

*Introducing The Parakeet PostΒ that will be featured 1-3 times a month to bring some joy and silliness to the blog. Olive and Kiwi are little balls of energy and are constantly making me laugh, so I wanted to share some of my smiles with my blogging community. I think that this will be a great addition to Maysa Rose. Do you agree? πŸ™‚
