Beach Walk 681 – The Energy of Tasks

Like many people, I set out an agenda for the day with a list of action items. Some items seem to take forever to get done though, and I have come to realize that not all tasks are created equal! They each actually require a certain level of attention and energy, and a select few really require a lot of focus and privacy, several hours free of any distractions. And many days I just don’t have that large of a block of time.

Hawaiian Word:
nānā: to pay attention

Beach Walk 677 – An Investment in Friendship

We are still traveling hence the light shows this week. We filmed this last week so we would all have an extra dose of beautiful Hawaii! It’s about a different way of looking at love, using friendship rather than romance as the guide. Ever notice how we treat friends better than lovers, once the relationship has been around for a while? I think we sometimes expect too much of a partner, as if somehow love means losing me in favor of your wishes. This episode was inspired by something my mom told me – and her birthday is this weekend by the way. We’ll be honoring her 84 years of determination and self-reliance, generosity and indeed good friendship.

Hawaiian Word:
Pilialoha: friendship

Beach Walk 676 – What’s the Opportunity?

We had a last minute change of plans recently. At first I found it very disorienting. Then Shane helped me by asking, “What’s the opportunity here?” And that single question opened up a whole new way of looking at things. We don’t always know best ahead of time; sometimes “even better” shows up unannounced.

Hawaiian Word:
Manawa kūpono: opportunity
