As I sit here dreaming about Hawaii, it’s a daytime high of -18C (with the wind chill) outside of my house in Canada and it’s a balmy 24C Lahaina, HI. The heaviness of winter has set in and I am getting by with warm thoughts of rolling waves and golden beaches.
Throughout the year I find Aloha in my everyday life. This not only brings me closer to my love of all things Hawaiian but adds an appreciation to life as well. I love all things beach, surfing, island, ocean and sea life related. This article posted by the Huffington Post could not have been a more accurate depiction of me! Especially the part about finding sand everywhere that I never clean up. I have even found shells in my cosmetics bag after getting home from a trip!
A way that I brought some Aloha into my life this week was scoring tickets for the only Canadian tour date for Jack Johnson this summer. Now I can look forward to a little bit of Hawaii in my own backyard.
I also came across this segment on Monumental Mysteries profiling surfing legend Duke Kahanamoku last night. It makes my next visit to Hawaii not seem so far off in the distance when I can capture these feelings through these moments.
These are the ways I live Aloha in my own life. So I hope you’ll stay with me as I share my Aloha with the world.
