Beach Walk 147 – You are marvelous!

Hurry up! Got to get in the canoe.

About Today’s Show

So much of how I experience aloha is through the generosity of people. It gets expressed in so many ways, and one of them is generous people can be with compliments to others. I have found in my life that it not only feels good to give (and receive) compliments, but it is also quite efficient and effective for meeting many goals. When I steer the canoe, I like to catch us paddlers doing something right, and I find the wa’a moves faster across the water. Granted, I have plenty of moments at work/in life when I feel like shouting “moron!” at someone but really, that’s just the frustration of the #2 who can’t understand the whole picture.

Check out our very aloha Hawaii Association of Podcasters.

Who do you find generous with loving words of encouragement and compliment? My parents are high on my list these days. I find Robert Scoble is amazingly generous. Read this from his blog today: How about I do a feed for you? What would you like me to find for you?

Mahalo nui loa to my paddler friends for another great day on the water.

Hawaiian words
Manawaleʻa: generous

  2. I’m so jealous of your lifestyle! But, I’ll soon be living near a beach so will try to keep up with you! 🙂
