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!!!"

GETTING READY FOR K-300!!!



SINCE I MOVED TO BETHEL, ALASKA IN 1998, I ALWAYS ENJOYED WATCHING THE ANNUAL "KUSKOKWIM 300 DOG SLED RACE" AKA "K-300" WHICH IS A RACE FROM BETHEL TO ANIAK AND BACK.  IT IS VERY AWESOME TO SEE THESE SUPERSTAR DOGS BEING ABLE TO PULL AND HULL THEIR WAY WHEREVER THE MUSHER PLEASES TO GO.

MY RESPECT GOES TO THESE PEOPLE WHO ENDURE EXTREME COLD WEATHERS AND UNEXPECTED CHALLENGES THAT MOTHER NATURE PUTS BEFORE THEM WHILE RACING ALONG THE TRAILS.

SO THIS YEAR I WAS ABLE TO HELP OUT RAMY SMYTH AND HIS TEAM OF WINNING DOGS AT THE K-300.  I MUST SAY, I AM VERY HAPPY AND HONORED TO BE PART OF THIS EVENT AS I KNOW I'LL NEVER FIND SUCH AN AWESOME EVENT LIKE THIS IN HAWAI'I WHEN I GO HOME SOON.  HOLDING THOSE DOGS ON THE ROPES FOR A LITTLE WHILE WAS APPRECIATED ENOUGH AS I GOT TO SEE THEM ONE BY ONE AS THEY ANXIOUSLY GET READY TO RACE.

I WANT TO PERSONALLY THANK MIKE & KATHY TURNER FOR INTRODUCING ME TO RAMY & BECCA SMYTH PLUS AVA AND BANYAN.  HAD I NOT MET THEM BEFORE, I PROBABLY WOULD HAVE NEVER HAD THIS OPPORTUNITY TO PARTICIPATE.

AN EXPERIENCE I'LL ALWAYS REMEMBER AND TREASURE FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE.
