MY BEAUTIFUL LIFE!!!

MY INTRO

ALOHA AND WELCOME TO MY PERSONAL BLOG!!! I THOUGHT WHY NOT SHARE MY PERSONAL GAINS & STRUGGLES THAT LIFE PUTS OUT TO EACH AND ONE OF US. I FEEL THAT THROUGH THE GIFT OF "GIVING & SHARING", THERE IS NO WAY BETTER THAN START THIS BLOG WHICH IS ALL ABOUT ME, MY OHANA (FAMILY), HOALOHA (FRIENDS), AND EVEN ENEMIES WHICH ARE THE VERY ONES I NEED TO LOVE AND ACCEPT.


I'LL SAY THIS STRAIGHT UP, I DON'T HOLD BACK MY FEELINGS FOR ANYONE AND IT'LL COME OUT OF MY MOUTH ON HOW I FEEL ABOUT YOU AND OTHERS. I DON'T GO BEHIND ANYONE'S BACK AND START RUMOURS WITH HOPES THAT IT WILL CIRCLE AROUND AND FINALLY HIT ITS TARGET. WHY TAKE THE LONG ROUTE WHEN I CAN GO STRAIGHT TO THE POINT. PERSONALLY, I THINK THAT IS THE "REAL" WAY OF LIVING LIFE, "BE REAL" AT ALL TIMES EVEN WHEN THE WORLD IS WATCHING.


ON THE OTHER NOTE, "I AM" THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PERSON IN THE WHOLE UNIVERSE FROM THE WAY "I SEE IT". I AM NOT SPEAKING FROM OTHER PEOPLE'S FEEDBACK OR "CONCEITEDNESS". "THIS IS" WHAT I CHOOSE TO SEE MYSELF EVERYDAY WHEN I WAKE UP FROM MY BED AND THANK "AKUA" (GOD) FOR GIVING ME ONE MORE DAY TO LIVE, REGARDLESS OF REGRETS FROM THE "YESTERDAYS" TO THE FEARS OF "TOMMOROWS".


IN MY EYES, LIVING A "BEAUTIFUL LIFE" CAN ONLY BE ATTAINED BY "CHOICE" AND IT REQUIRES "INTEGRITY", "HONESTY", "UNCONDITIONAL ACCEPTANCE", "FORGIVENESS" AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, "LOVE".


AS MY BEAUTIFUL ANCESTORS HAVED ALWAYS BELIEVED:


'Ike aku, 'ike mai, kokua aku kokua mai; pela iho la ka nohana 'ohana.


WHICH MEANS, RECOGNIZE OTHERS, BE RECOGNIZED, HELP OTHERS, BE HELPED; SUCH IS A FAMILY RELATIONSHIP.


SO ONCE AGAIN, "WELCOME TO MY BEAUTIFUL LIFE!!!"

TODAY WAS A SOMEWHAT CHALLENGING DAY FOR ME, HMMM...  HOW SHALL I TELL THE STORY...  SO HERE GOES...
 
AFTER WORKING YESTERDAY'S EVENING SHIFT AT ALASKA AIRLINES, I HAVE A 2 HOUR WINDOW BEFORE I HEAD OVER TO MY OTHER JOB AT BYF WORKING THE GRAVEYARD SHIFT FROM MIDNIGHT TO 8AM.  SO WITHIN THAT 2 HOUR WINDOW, I PREPARE MY MEALS AND HIT THE SHOWERS AND IF I'M LUCKY, I'LL GET AN HOUR REST/NAP BEFORE I HEAD OUT TO WORK.  AFTER I FINISHED MY GRAVEYARD SHIFT I NORMALLY GO STRAIGHT BED AND WAKE UP AROUND 3PM TO START MY "INTERVAL JOGGING" SESSIONS.
 
BUT TODAY PLANS CHANGED BECAUSE I HAVE A "STAFF MEETING" TO ATTEND BACK AT BYF, WHICH MEANS I HAD TO WAKE UP EALIER THAN USUAL AT 12PM/NOON AND DO MY "INTERVAL JOGGING" SESSION
 
 
AND THEN HEAD BACK FOR MY STAFF MEETING WHICH WAS 2 HOURS LONG AND BEFORE YOU KNOW IT, I'M BACK AT MY FAVORITE JOB, ALASKA AIRLINES!!!
 
OH BY THE WAY...  MY TIME IMPROVED AGAIN, IT WAS A SHORTER DISTANCE BECAUSE I DIDN'T WANT TO BE LATE FOR MY MEETING BUT OVERALL "MILE PER MILE", MY TIMED IMPROVED BY ALMOST A MINUTE!!!
 
YEAH BABY!!!
 
 
AND WHAT BETTER WAY TO END MY "ALOHA THURSDAY"...

LUNCH & DINNER COMBO MEAL!!!
 
MORE CHICKEN & AVOCADO!!!
 
PROTEIN - 146 GRAMS, CARBS - 33.5 GRAMS, AND FAT - 62.7 GRAMS = 1104 CALORIES!!!
 
I SPLIT THIS IN HALF AND ATE THEM 4 HOURS APART!!!
 
 
SEXY COWBOY, BRENT FLASHING "DA SHAKA" SIGN!!!
 
 
 
AND THEN OUR LAST FLIGHT ARRIVED WITH A BEAUTIFUL RAINBOW!!!




 
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEN!!!
