I count my blessings every day for the opportunity to live in paradise. I’m happy to have a job and several ventures to make living here possible.
I admit that I never appreciated my situation until early 2011.
In 2011, I decided to live my life with a sense of urgency. I managed my time better, accomplished so many goals that year, and lived life to the fullest. Another outcome of that lifestyle re-design is loving everything more fervently.
I grew to love the sunrise and sunset. Actually, I grew to appreciate and notice the natural surroundings. I took advantage of everything Hawaii had to offer. I became more appreciative of the simpler things in life.
Kind of an oxymoron to adapt to a fast paced lifestyle design and yet grow in love with the simple things in life.
Here is a photo of the sunrise taken on May 28, 2012 in Kailua. I took the photo but it was Instagram’d by my friend Aggie.
