I just flew back to Maui from an outer island five-day trip. As the plane descended from the wispy clouds to the clear blue sky below, I gazed down at the translucent turquoise ocean and then looked over to the emerald green mountains. The beauty of Maui’s coastline captivated me! I then found myself reflecting about the end of my Waikiki trip and coming home and getting back to work. My gratitude for living in the place of my dreams filled me again and I smiled with the knowing that I am surrounded by beauty living in the graceful chain of islands we call Hawaii. How very fortunate I feel to have my family close by, friends I love and work I am devoted to. I invite you to reflect on the place that you call home and check inside to see if it really feels like a match to with you are now. When you come home from a trip are you excited to be back or do you dread the routine you have created for yourself? The answer will reveal to you insights about your current life situation. I am attending a memorial service for a friend tomorrow and again, I am reminded that this life is precious and short and it's important to live my dreams now. I'm happy to be back in Maui and to celebrate the blessings of this sacred place. All the best to you!
