Check out this video from NYC’s pride rally! Lady Gaga brings DOWN the house with her amazing vocals. Doesn’t matter if you like her or not, her vocals are on point in this video. This is a performance that is truly coming from the heart and soul. I LOVE seeing people sing like this. Pure, and completely natural. No tricks, or enhancements. Love is love peeps! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
Hey guuuuys…It’s been awhile.
These past two months have been insanely AMAZING for me!
|Me speaking on a social networking panel in Miami!|
I traveled Miami, Florida to speak on a panel about promoting your music on social media for *Hispanicize*, had a week home, then back on the road to California for the 7th Annual Crafty Chica Cruise. After that I had a couple of hours at home (exhausted) and the very next morning I was on the road for my great grandma Carmen’s 80th birthday party in a beach house in San Diego with my family!

Well, I’m home and reality greeted me with a huge slap in the face.
Finals are next week.
I’m behind on my blog and YouTube.
Negative people whom I kept pushing out of my life return.
Ugh. I know this seems completely stupid, but all of this stress came at me full force. So what do I do?
Haha. I literally sat on my mom’s glittered floor in the art room, and sobbed. I think the main reason I did this was because I was couldn’t find the fabric glue for my latest craft project. “Maya. are you reaaaally crying about fabric glue right now?” It really wasn’t the fabric glue. I was unmotivated with my life. I mean, I’m freaking twenty years old. I JUST got back from speaking on a panel in BEAUTIFUL Miami. I sailed the ocean with my favorite people and sang to them. Lastly, I spent a week with my family in San Diego. I have absolutely no reason to be unhappy. But I was. Don’t get me wrong, I’m grateful for everything God gave me. I was just unhappy with myself. I just don’t know where I’m going, or what I should do. Or, if what I’m doing is the right path. How do you know if something is meant to be?
I was so focused on what I should be doing, instead of just doing. How was I going to figure out if I’m meant for something if I don’t even give my 100%? That, my friends is called self sabotage. Why do we do this? Limit ourselves on purpose? It’s a mystery to me, but I’m working on it. After I sobbed on that glittered floor, I picked myself up, and got my work done. I still have a buttload of work to do, but I’m taking it one step at time. As far as figuring out what I want to do? I’m just gonna continue doing. Whatever is meant to be, will be. Das it.
If any of you are
stabbing yourself repeatedly with a knife leaving yourself to bleed out on the floor self sabotaging yourself, here is a helpful website: http://topachievement.com/guyfinley.html
