Current Mood: determined
Current Song: Interesting by Maria Mena

If I had the chance to go back in time
I would tell the younger me to breathe
'Cause you'll be fine
Trust the path you're on and dream
Write down the words on your mind

These are the opening lines from the first song, Interesting, on Maria Mena's brand-new album, Weapon in Mind.

If someone told the younger me to breathe, I would probably respond, "Easier said than done." I would probably say that now, too - except now, I would breathe. I'd close my eyes, take a deep breath, and smile, because I know that I'm making the younger me proud every day by working hard to make my dreams become reality.

Here's to all of us who are daring, dauntless, and determined.

I quoted another track from the album, I Always Liked That, earlier this month. Click here to read the lyrics, hear the song, and watch the video.
