It's me, reaching out, staying connected, and offering help. If you want to chat, let's talk story. Social distancing doesn't need to get in the way, REALLY! Zoom, GOTO Meeting, Skype, FaceTime, or my fingers can do the walking. Whatever you prefer, let's connect.
The other day, I answered,"These are challenging times. How are you taking care of you? What are doing to work on your business and prepare for the future?" in a live interview about my resilience. It's no surprise, the first thing that comes to my mind, is psychological and emotional well being. I've always advocated our actions are an extension of our State of Mind. If my mind is good then the rest will follow.
Lucky for me, I’m an upbeat person. I don't get flustered easily though there are times when people rub me the wrong way. I'm cool under pressure and love taking care of other people's challenges. Especially when the solution not only solves the immediate focus but also offers a keen idea to be explored. I am task oriented. My natural inclination doesn’t assume there is a problem. Only something to get done. In that respect, I’m ahead of the game.
Next, the Kealoha Ohana, is a clan raised where routine is like brushing your teeth. It's what you do when you get up in the morning. However, what you may not realize, routine eliminates idleness. And what does idleness encourage? According to Proverbs 12:24, "The hand of the diligent will rule. But the slack hand will be put to forced labor." In a nutshell, nothing good.
I can't forget physical activity and if you can take it outdoors, more power to you. We all have our own opinion about how much activity we need but this I know. You'll never understand how the benefits of physical activity or fitness feel until you're in the middle of it. If you can't get passed, "I'll start tomorrow", you're denying yourself a better you.
Then there is writing. I love when the unexpected and increible knock on my door. For me, the bi-weekly writings is an avenue that allows an intellectual release. The wonderful surprise is discovering a way to share my families' history, culture and practices.
Finally, human connection. I connect with my homestead regularly. Prior to 'shelter in place', people, outdoors, food and exercise had regular and valuable time with me. Seriously, each person, each fitness session, each activity outdoors, each meal prepared, each idea inspired, each breath is the result of the best of me. Shelter in place did not temper my connections. It did give me greater appreciation for each and every one of them.

The Magic of Aloha
directs my natural instincts to my environment and those around me. Instinctively my heightened awareness is on cue. It reveals itself by being supportive and caring to those around me, including myself. Aloha builds relationships that are nurtured with respect, understanding and compassion. When you are on this wave, it's a magical journey. Aloha relies on truth and honesty, tempered with humility and diligence. Finally when patience prepares perseverance, we embrace a graceful yet skillful guidance. As a dear friend reminded me, "Generative and Wonderful Happiness is a choice."
