So crazy happy to be home again and for good. OMG the mainland just so wasn’t home. That’s what happens when you grow up in Paradise. Super spoiled. Don’t know how the heck I survived being so dang far from the Ocean. It wasn’t for a long time, thankfully and the road trips rocked. lol :)… It was necessary and served its purpose though. And now things are as they should be… Maui has always been home, even while away, that of course doesn’t change. Family, friends, all that home has and always will be are something I cherish so very much. Aside from the crappy healthcare and limited options in some of those areas, all else friggen rocks when it comes to living where your heart is most grounded. Keeping the amazing team of Docs that I’ve been working with in a few other states, and they’ve been amazing at being open to working with docs here. Geez with as many trips to the mainland we have done for surgeries and medical related crap, you think I’d be used to all the travel chaos that comes with it. This was only the second time I needed medical clearance from a Doctor to show proof of being medically able to travel. Oh lord back to $5 per gallon gas and $10 per gallon milk. lmao. Pay the price to live in Paradise, as they say, haha. Reminding myself that the amazing ocean, beaches, waterfalls, bamboo forest, secret spots of peacefulness, and the truly blessed energy that makes Maui, and the people here so much of what it is, are all 100% FREE!!!
We all have baggage. We all have past pains, hurts and wrongs. We all have fear. If we chose to live bound to them, we will never truly live. It’s not easy to let go of what hurts, but in doing so we can let in what feels good. We must move past what ends so that we can move toward what begins. When you release yourself of all that will never be, you can embrace all that CAN be.
LOOK. LISTEN. FEEL. KNOW. What you seek is always within your reach. Open your heart and mind and recognize it. Never be afraid of new journeys, new adventures, new possibilities. sometimes the road will be unfamiliar, but the destination is well worth the risk, the work and the challenge. Always follow your internal compass. Seek what’s coming to you, and that which you seek…. See it, have faith in it and yourself and fully embrace it…Live it!!! Wishing you all the most incredible of days!!!
Beauty comes from within, it isn’t what lies on the surface, it comes from the very depths of you, your soul and your heart. Your spirit, is unlike any other. Share it, live from it, embrace it and all you are. Your actions, your words, all that you do in this life, not only effect you, or those that surround you. It travels the world, without you even knowing it at times. Share from within with all that is without.
To achieve anything in this life you must first ACT. Nothing will come without action. You have everything you need within you to live the most amazingly blessed life. You need only take steps towards, to, forward, and/or onward. Often people think things are out of their reach, not meant for them, are going to take to much work. There is always an excuse not to take action, not to try. For every excuse there is a blessing, a dream, a step forward, a chance that is then lost. Dreams, goals, amazings die when excuses are made. Don’t allow such a travesty ever to happen…Blessings, gifts, awesomeness, these things are what life is all about. We each are a blessing and a gift, and most certainly a piece of awesomeness. WE ALL ARE!!!
Once you truly realize that, and know that nothing is outside your reach, unless it’s you that chooses not to reach at all, this is when life truly moves in the direction it was meant to. We might now always be able to leap from one side of where we are, over the side we wish to be on. But recognizing the want to get there at all, and having a willingness to take the steps is what bridges the gap from here to there. One step, one stair, one action, this is what takes us to where we wish to be. Every day take one, take two, take however many you feel within you to do. If you’re trying to head back to a place you once were, you are moving in the wrong direction, and wasting such valuable time, energy and effort in doing so. You can never go back to where you were. You can certainly stay right where you are right now, if that is what you feel is right for you. But if there is anything more you want from this life, then you need to move forward with it. Time is always moving forward, it’s there to help guide us to do the same.
