Love & Happiness

Are you happy?

Happiness is a choice.  Choose it.  It’s not hard.

Just live life as if everything is magnificent, a miracle.  Look beyond the imperfections, the teeny things that don’t matter because there’s bigger more important things that do.  Enjoy, seize and love every moment. In reality it’s not really what you have that makes you happy… or who or where you are, or what you’re doing….It’s what you think. If you’re in a miserable place but you think beautiful, happy thoughts, then you’re happy.  Believe that if you think it, it will be.  So if you want to be happy, there is no other way but to be.

And love?

Don’t go looking for it.  Because it will find you. I promise.

Love yourself first.  Love the world and the people around you, and everything will fall into place.

The person you are meant to be with- he/she will come around.  The secret is to know that the this person, they’re already a part of you.  And when that one day come, you will know. 

So don’t worry…be happy.

New Year, No Resolutions…New Attitude

Merry new year my darlings!

Mahalo nui loa for all my amazing friends and family who greeted me on my 26th Birthday this past Thursday, Dec. 27th. Hugs & Kisses from yours truly!

20121230-104738.jpg

2013 is fast approaching and everyone is getting their New Year’s resolution lists in time to begin midnight Tuesday.

No resolutions for me, no sir. I think it’s more important to have a new way of thinking, a new attitude in the different everyday things we deal with rather than shooting for changing things and people that we can’t control.

As I slowly learn in this life, I have come to acknowledge that the only way to deal with unchanging circumstances (and people) is to change the way you relate to them. The changes you make, this new attitude you have will precipitate change in others.

Some fresh and fabulous ways of thinking to get us through the new year. When you’re feeling down, keep these thoughts in mind. Your new attitude will get you back up and moving.

Follow your heart.
Happiness is yours to take.
This is your life and you deserve the absolute best.
Be kind to yourself.
Embrace possibility.
Believe in your power.
Exceed your expectations.
Mean what you say.
Express gratitude.
Know when you did something wrong and apologize.
Never give up.
You’re beautiful and special and there is only one you!
Love your life and the people who make it worthwhile.

My mother’s daughter….

I am my mother’s daughter…
I am her legacy.
I am my mother’s mirror.

I hope that in heaven, she feels the love reflecting from me…my sisters, and my brother.

Because we are our mother’s children.
We are her legacy.

Happy Birthday, Mama.  We all love you very much.

Born on August 1st, our mother would have turned 50 years old today, although she would always be no older than thirty-six in our memories.

Our mother was the most beautiful woman I know-

flawless fair skin, lustrous jet-black hair, dark almond shaped eyes.  Growing up I remember she would walk into a room and everyone would just turn to look at her.

I remembered thinking someday I wanted to have that effect on people. The kind of effect that would just immobilize people because of your presence.

Our mother was as beautiful inside as she was outside- always thinking the good in others, trusting them and loving them so unconditionally even though her heart broke into tiny little pieces doing so.  She was alluring, as she was tragic.

Our mother watches us from heaven.  We feel her presence in our daily lives.  I am her eldest daughter, and I made a promise to her.  My siblings- they know in my own way I am going to keep this promise.  Every year, on the first of August, on our mother’s birthday, I remember this promise and how close I am to fulfilling this.

Mothers Daughter

Because I am my mother’s daughter.

Dear Diary…..

Needing inspiration to last me for the next few days and needing to keep this peace of mind going even though it is absolute madness around me, I go through my old writings to move me and I found this in an old online diary….

***

We all encounter life differently. The world is cruel and unfair, and it’s only human to sometimes feel like giving up. We all have experiences that lead us to where we are and some of them even become a barrier to what we want to accomplish, where we would like to go.

Life is simple, but it is not easy.

Remember, the easier the path taken, the simpler the reward granted. It’s okay to be who you are, no matter how disapproving the world is, because in the end, all the hard work is worth it.

Believe in Beauty, no matter how ugly the world seems.

Believe in Goodness, no matter how harsh life may be.

Believe in Hope, no matter how impossible days become.

By believing this, you have the power to be the best person you can ever be and even better.

***

This is all I need.
Thank you, Diary.

Love,
Honey

The Man in the Moon

A couple of nights ago, while pulling into my garage, I saw one of the most magnificent full moons in the night sky.

I wanted to share it with you all, my darlings. Hawaii’s weather hasn’t been all the great this week, with the storm, flooding, hail and even a tornado, but I wanted to remind you that beyond these disasters exist the marvelous beauty, and wonder of nature…

Just like the scientists who, for centuries, have observed and studied the moon, I too, have always been fascinated by its mystery. From the eyes and heart of a dreamer, I look at the moon like I do the sunshine.

I think we can always turn to the man in the moon (or the goddess of the moon) to give us hope.

“The moon is friend for the lonesome to talk to.” ― Carl Sandburg

“We all shine on…like the moon and the stars and the sun..” – John Lennon

“We must strive to be like the moon.’ An old man in Kabati repeated this sentence often… the adage served to remind people to always be on their best behavior and to be good to others. [S]he said that people complain when there is too much sun and it gets unbearably hot, and also when it rains too much or when it is cold. But, no one grumbles when the moon shines. Everyone becomes happy and appreciates the moon in their own special way. Children watch their shadows and play in its light, people gather at the square to tell stories and dance through the night. A lot of happy things happen when the moon shines. These are some of the reasons why we should want to be like the moon.”
― Ishmael Beah

“The moon is a loyal companion. It never leaves. It’s always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human. Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections.” ― Tahereh Mafi

“When hope is fleeting, stop for a moment and visualize, in a sky of silver, the crescent of a lavender moon. Imagine it — delicate, slim, precise, like a paper-thin slice from a cabochon jewel. It may not be very useful, but it is beautiful. And sometimes it is enough.” ― Vera Nazarian

“I never really thought about how when I look at the moon it’s the same moon as Shakespeare and Marie Antoinette and George Washington and Cleopatra looked at.” ― Susan Beth Pfeffer

When you feel like the whole world is crushing down on you, always look at the moon, and remember that there is a bigger, more complex world out there. That you are not alone. And yes, you can always talk to the moon 😉

Love,
Honey
