So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give them peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more dangerous to the adventurous spirit within a man […]

Danger of Complacency

The one big lesson that COVID-19 has taught, was to take our first inconvenient pause.  COVID-19 forced the entire world to literally come to a screeching halt and take a pause.  For many, this pause was necessary because it allowed people the time, space, and opportunity to take a look at what they were doing […]

The Power of Pause

It’s fascinating how Valentine’s Day has taken on such a commercial nature over the past decade.  For some it’s become an exciting day where they are able to connect and show/receive love from their partner, and for others who do not have a significant other, it brings sadness and a sense of lack and what […]

The Valentine’s Day Blues

The one thing that this coronavirus experience has taught me is to really examine what is being told, what is being mandated, and the reasons for certain actions and/or non-actions to take.  Back in March, the Mayor and Governor mentioned that their intent was not to lock Hawai’i down unless it was called for, and […]

The Body Agenda

Lately I have been observing a lot of unexpected shifts happening in people’s lives; some good and some not so good.  With the year 2019 winding down, things appear to be accelerating rather than decelerating.  This is not only my perception, but have heard many express this same feeling. Being fully entrenched in the fall […]

Attitude of Gratitude

I recently watched the movie, Dark Phoenix, a Marvel movie about a mutant woman that experiences a surge of energy that activates all of her cells and brings up painful memories from her past that were suppressed by her mentor. She is fueled by rage and loses control. The message I got from this movie […]

Shadow Self

It’s amazing that when you are not inspired, it’s hard to get started, have the energy/mojo to take care of projects, or make progress on deadlines. I found myself in this particular state when it came to working on my monthly Life Letter for July, which I am 11 days tardy. I just came back […]

To Procrastinate or Not to Procrastinate, That Is the Question

As 2018 is coming to a close, many take this time to reflect on the successes and challenges of the past year (by the time you get to read this blog, 2019 may already be here). Finding gratitude in all that happened, whether good or bad, insures that you do not fall victim to holding […]

The Challenge of Letting Go

Recently at a Mind-Body talk, which I hold twice a month at my office on specific Friday evenings, Kumu Hula, Hoakalei Hina (Macey) Kamauu shared something really profound to another lady about the power of dancing. This lady was asking how she can learn to make the right choices and to trust herself. This lady […]

Dance in Your Life

The one thing you can expect about life is that things will constantly change and never stay the same. The idea of control is an illusion created to give many peace of mind. However, the one thing that you do have control over is your mind and how you choose to perceive life, events, and […]
