A time where students are suddenly given amazing strength and ability to do whatever their heart desires yep you guessed it, IT’S SPRING BREAK R***. This time of year in early March, young adults engage in all sorts of activities with friends and family. I like to think and compare the feeling of excitement and inspiration to the concept of WHO IS ROSE.

H O W and W H Y?

Simply because, motivation is at an all-time high. Spring break is in full effect and I hope you perceive your rose. I encourage rose to have fun and the time spent on this break be full of roses. Eighty degree weather on the coast of Costa Rica with bacon, eggs, and cheese, featuring a tequila sunrise in the mist of the air. Stress is out the door and friends are on the way. THIS IS YOUR ROSE. A lot of my friends at East Carolina University are in the Florida area enjoying the beach and spirits. I hope this post can lead you to the suggestion that WHO IS ROSE, is not about just clothing or photography, but more encouraging YOU to realize what makes YOU happy. During this week, my colleagues will be more motivated ever to be happy, smile, and laugh. WHO IS ROSE motivates YOU to perceive YOUR happiness, whether it is your Spring Break plans or not. To my fellow colleagues enjoy your break, meet new people, and take trendy photos wherever you are.Vic hat TAG @who_is_rose on Instagram for a chance to have YOUR ROSE BREAK posted on the page!

All of our DREAMS can come true, if we have the COURAGE to pursue them. With motivation anything is possible. The source of this motivation is YOUR ROSE. Striving to pursue your dream leads to a fulfilling and successful lifestyle. If you do not follow your dreams are you growing as an individual? When a flower does not bloom you fix the environment in which it grows, not the flower. You are the flower. Will your environment allow you to bloom?

Adapting to stress in 3 simple steps

  • Alarm: Fight or Flight
    • Are you going to face the causation or give in and quit?
      • For example:
        •   If your schoolwork is the cause will you schedule more time for studying OR say “Screw IT” and not complete the assignment.
  • Resistance
    • Deny the stress by creating ways to manage and eliminate the cause.
        • Sometimes when I am stressed instead of dwelling on it, I create a new task to take my mind off of it.


  • Exhaustion and early aging if stress persists
    • Your body loses the effort to fight or respond to stress
      • Find ways such as going on a walk, working out at the gym, or watching your favorite movie/show
    • Your body simply ages as the stress manifests
      • The more stress the less your body can deal with it causing  “biopsychosocial” illnesses

The source of your motivation, will it lead to growth or be a waste of time? Simple motivation can be the difference in your life. Some journeys only begin solely, because of motivation.  Daily tasks cannot be accomplished if you are not motivated. Waking up for class, getting ready, and attending does not happen if you are not motivated. What motivates you to be a better person and strive for greatness? What keeps you going even when the finish line is not in sight?DSC_0233.JPG
