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!!!

THE HOLIDAYS ARE HERE AND THAT MEANS KAHEALANI IS RETURNING FOR WINTER HOLIDAYS!!!


AT ALASKA AIRLINES, WE ALWAYS RECEIVE WONDERFUL GIFTS FROM OTHERS, AND THIS BASKET OF SWEETS IS JUST ONE OF THEM.

SO KAHEALANI IS FLYING FROM KONA TO ANCHORAGE AND I'M TRYING TO LEAVE BETHEL TO GO MEET HER.


GETTING OUT OF BETHEL WAS A CHALLENGE BECAUSE FLIGHTS WERE BEING CANCELLED ON THE WEEKEND JUST BEFORE CHRISTMAS, I MEAN LOOK AT THIS...  THIS IS IN BETHEL, ALASKA...  THE AIRPORT IS PACKED WITH PEOPLE TRYING TO GET OUT!!!

AFTER A DAY AND A HALF OF WAITING...  I FINALLY WAS ABLE TO FLY OUT TO ANCHORAGE!!!


I WAS EXHAUSTED WHEN I ARRIVED IN ANCHORAGE, MY SISTER DENSIE PICKED ME UP AND I WENT STRAIGHT TO BED.

I WOKE UP THE NEXT DAY AND IT WAS CHRISTMAS EVE AND I WENT AND DID SOME LAST MINUTE CHRISTMAS SHOPPING FOR MY UPCOMIMG CHRISTMAS & WELCOME BACK KAHEALANI PARTY.  WHILE SHOPPING I RAN INTO AN OLD CO-WORKER FROM ALASKA AIRLINES...

I ALSO COULD NOT RESIST...  I HAD TO GET ANOTHER GIANT TEDDY BEAR!!!


AFTER MY SHOPPING WAS DONE, DENISE AND I WENT TO GO CELEBRATE OUR CHRISTMAS EVE DINNER AT SORRENTOS, AN ITALIAN RESTAURANT.
