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!!!"

ALOHA EVERYONE!!!
 
AFTER THAT FUN & DRUNK VALENTINE'S WEEKEND...  IT WAS TIME TO GO HOME...  HAWAI'I THAT IS!!!
 
AS I AM LEAVING ALASKA...
 
I RAN INTO MICHELLE WHOM I ALSO HAVEN'T SEEN FOR AWHILE AND IS ON HER WAY TO MOUNTAIN VILLAGE VIA BETHEL AND THEN I RAN INTO ANNA WHO IS ALSO GOING TO HAWAI'I ON THE SAME PLANE WITH ME BECAUSE WE ARE BOTH GOING TO WEDDING SET FOR THE BIG ISLAND!!!

THE FULL STORY OF MY ENTIRE BACK:

THE HONU(TURTLE) IS THE BIRTH OF MY DAUGHTER, KAHEALANI...  THE HONU IS THE SYMBOL OF OHANA (FAMILY), OUR BEGINNING.  ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE HONU IS THE MANO (SHARK) WHICH IS MY IDENTITY AND AUMAKUA (GUARDIAN) WHO PROTECTS ME THROUGHOUT MY LIFE, ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE HONU IS THE NAI'A (DOLPHIN), KAHEALANI'S MOTHER.  AND THE HAHALUA (MANTA RAY) IS KAHEALANI ONCE AGAIN WHO COVERS EVERYTHING TO ENSURE PROTECTION OF THE ENTIRE OHANA WITH HER STRENGTH & WISDOM.  OUR CIRCLE OF LIFE, LOVE, & ALOHA!!!
