Beach Walk 684 – Sorting Out Travel Energy

Seems the more I travel the easier it is for me to get cranky. Today, a RT fare from HNL to DTW to HNL cost $700 but a one-way fare cost $1100! That is not about fuel prices…

Anyway, I am learning to just pull my aura in and focus on myself, in the midst of the madding crowds (and unruly dogs!) And curiously, after an hour or so, people are not bothering me. It’s this concept of “hui hui” or blending together without actually having to interact. We get trapped into thinking other people have to change for us to be happy or content, but really, sometimes all that’s necessary is to just let it be and focus inward. Have you found this works for you?

Hawaiian Word:
Hui hui: blending, coming together

Beach Walk 643 – Tired Cranky, Rested Happy

Given that things are never black and white, I still like having little tricks that can help me 80-90% of the time. In today’s case, it is remembering that one of the main causes of crankiness is just plain being tired. In fact, just by remembering that point all by itself, I can relax and not let the little things “get to me” regardless of my sleep deficit. Step 1 = understanding the connection between fatigue and short fuse (get sleep when possible). Step 2 = realizing that the crankiness is not related to my current situation (move back to center as I detach from the distractions).

Māluhiluhi: tired
