Enjoy the game

Hey everyone 👋 make sure you spend time on you today! Today I feel a bit off with my workflow, a bit overwhelmed, and that’s ok. I will flow through that and maybe do something fun today instead! “Just play, have fun, enjoy the game” -Michael Jordan

Change doesn’t happen overnight

Change doesn’t happen overnight


@rentampa
 you outdid yourself last night with the stage and gorgeous event!! 🧡💜 .
*my friends around me inspire me to be better and better. Just whitnessing the amazing event put together last night, I just realized once again to step up my game and be the best me I can be, and be kind always. The employees and other artists at these art events at Ren Tampa International Mall are so nice, so welcoming, so hospitable! It’s no wonder they’re in the hospitality industry, they’re good at it! And the artist are always open to collaborate. It’s inspiring! .
*if you ever feel like you need to make a better effort in your business or craft, don’t be hard on yourself, just give it your all tomorrow, and appreciate what you have and who you are today. .
Accept your skill level and always know that tomorrow you will evolve and the next day and the next. .

Jumping for joy! 

Jumping for joy! 

Imagine you are a little kid again! How would you spend your day? 
This is what I would do:
*wake up an start jumping on the bed *make a really pretty breakfast while watching cartoons!
*get in touch with my friends
*play with my guitar
*help a friend with a project *play with my camera
*have lunch with my grandma
*have a singing contest in the car with my sister and her kids while heading towards an adventure *plan an exciting trip *manage my piggy bank *read a book 
The list could go on and on 😉
How would you spend your day? Even when you spend the whole day at work? What can you do to make it more fun and jump for joy? You have the ability to turn a situation into something fun 🤙 “Joy does not simply happen to us, we have to choose joy and keep choosing it everyday” - unknown

Love this message

I absolutely love the message this artist is conveying. Personally, the most important life lesson I’ve ever learned! @amandaoleander you have a brilliant mind! 
To me this image says the following: *no ones is coming to save you but you
*its up to you to create your reality *you could easily be consumed by your emotions, or you can choose to solve the problem *you have the ability to achieve the impossible *mind over matter
*your problems are not as big as they seem *histeria is debilitating *depression will make things seems impossible
*you have the ability to change your reality and the way you perceive a situation *if you don’t try, you will definitely fail, but if you try, you have a chance to succeed!
THIS IMAGE IS SO INSPIRING! 🧡💛❤️💛🧡❤️💛🧡❤️💛🧡❤️💛🧡❤️

Happy Mother’s Day mom!

Happy Mother’s Day mom!

Although I have a hard time showing it sometimes, I truly reflect in amazement on you life and am so inspired by your love, creativity, spontaneity, strength, courage, and desire to make family and travel your priorities! *I look at these photos and see such a fun young woman you were and still remain to be! I will try to remember to be light hearted, fun and adventurous, like I see in you in these photos. *It’s amazing that you went through the loss of our dad at such a young age and came out strong.
*its amazing they you started living in you own and supporting your self in your teens.
*it is amazing that you decided it was important to put my through piano lessons, band, and french horn lessons, to pave the road to where I am today. *its amazing that you raised 3 children and continue to take care of your mom, and me!
*its amazing that you have sent me traveling to so many countries and states at such a young age.

I’m collecting old guitars

I’m collecting old guitars

I’m collecting old guitars like this one to transform into new pieces of art! *let me know if you see a neglected guitar at a thrift store and I’ll come pick it up! Or if you have a POC guitar you don’t want anymore 🤣

Turning this cute little guitar into a new piece of art! Stay tuned! This morning I sanded it down and painted it black. I’ll be adding some new designs to pop against the black. 
Make time for an art project on a daily. Not only is it fun but it is therapeutic! It reduces stress, encourages creative thinking, boosts self esteem, provides a sense of accomplishment, distracts thoughts of illness, improves your flow of spontaneity, expresses grief, and even improves lymphocyte cell counts in the body, which is the impact on cells to improve your immune system! 🥳 “Art speaks where words are unable to explain” - unknown

National Anthem at the Rays vs Boston Red Sox game

National Anthem at the Rays vs Boston Red Sox game

I’m honored to have performed The National Anthem at the Rays vs Boston Red Sox game! An amazing experience and quite the intense feeling to sing in front of thousands of people! In the end I was just so focused on doing a good job with the song, the amount of people watching was irreverent to me lol. But I made it through the most important song without missing a lyric and executed all the ranges. Hurrah! 
BATTLE OF THE MIND *when you see people on TV saying “I never though I’d be standing here today” it’s the truth! You don’t realize and embrace what you have become because... we’ll, you’re just you! So never be afraid and always execute your craft! Other people will see an amazing singer, an amazing “_______” but in the end it’s just you. We all have the potential for greatness. Never let a failure stop you, use it as a lesson, a learning tool, and move forward. Nobody will remember your failures, those small things that don’t matter, only you will. Don’t let your mind sabotage you and let them go. The more you focus on them, the bigger they will become. Instead pour all your energy into the good things, the successes, the bigger picture! 😊💪🏻✌️ “We often want it so badly that we ruin it before it begins, overthinking, fantasizing, imagining, expecting, worrying, doubting...just let it naturally evolve” - unknown

 Does anyone know I’m self taught on guitar?

Does anyone know I’m self taught on guitar?

🎸💪🏻 I have never take one guitar lesson ever! I learned back in high school when I was 18. Kids at school would play during lunch hour and I was so impressed by what they were able to do. So I bough a book with matching VHS tape from the music store, popped the VHS tape into my TV and started to followed with the book. That was back in 2008 and now in 2019 I am a full time guitarist as my profession. Law of attraction at its finest. If you think you can do it, and are determined enough to achieve a goal, and allow yourself time and never give up, you will achieve what you want. Although I am human, and of course have doubted myself along the way many times, have had some dark moments when I though I wasn’t good enough, thought “nobody ever becomes successful as an artist or musician”, but as long as you get back on the horse after you’ve fallen, 10 years will go by and you will realize, you have met your goal. The law of attraction is truly about never giving up your vision of that you wish to become. If you can envision what you want, and never give up the drive to have it, you will get there! 💪🏻 “You get in life what you have the courage to ask for” - unknown 

Planning my next move

Planning my next move


🦂 *you don’t always have to be smiley and bubbly. Sometimes you just have quiet days, sad days, daydreaming day, confused days, rest days, days you can catch up. Some days you don’t know how you feel and no words can explain it. Hence this photo, just meditative. Not smiling, not frowning, or maybe if you are like me, your resting face looks like a frown lol. And sometimes you might get tired of smiling for a while, and that’s ok. Rest. Instagram has become such a false representation of natural life and it may seem like you need to be perfect. Although it is good to surround yourself with positivity, and positive insta posts are great for that! So post what you will and enjoy those perfect feeds by influencers. But know what you see in the surface isn’t what it seems. 
Today is Saturday, a day of rest for and rehabilitation for me and maybe I will spend it in nature or with family and friends or writing new music and eating good food. You have ultimate control of your feelings and what happened today. All you have to do is harness that power and use it! 💪🏻✨ Some of my favorite quotes: “The mind is everything; what you think, you will become” - Abraham / Esther and Jerry Hicks “You are the only one who creates your experience-no one else” - Abraham / Esther and Jerry Hicks

Be you and be true!

Be you and be true!

*Gosh I was so moody yesterday and today I’m feeling totally different, anxious yet relaxed 😌lol! I’ve been making an effort to wake up early and get a few hours of computer work done first thing, and now that I’ve done that, the anxiety has diminished 😌 I don’t think you really truly figure out how to battle anxiety until your late 20s and it can then still be hard. But eliminate anxiety buy getting some easy tasks out of your way before you feel ready to tackle the hard ones. The success of accomplishing those easy tasks will give you some serious fuel!! Then what to do when noon hits? Haha you’ll feel so accomplished! “It always seems impossible until it’s done.” -Nelson Mandela
