Hawaiian #sunset helps you forget about the Hawaiian #traffic...

Let me tell you a story 😂
~
I thought for a minute I wanted to be a runner🤷🏼‍♀️… Like I hated everything about it… But for some reason I thought it was my goal to run a half marathon. Not because I wanted to… Or that it sounded fun… but because the perfectionist in me said and made me feel “that I needed to be good at this runner thing because all my friends were doing it.” ~
Goodness gracious was I so OFF from the truth… Number one, I run like a snail… 🐌Number two I ran every single day for an entire summer and hated it as much as the first day that I ran😂😂
~
I literally was pissed off even more at the end of the 90 days versus the beginning… how did this help me in any way? ~
Was I faster? Yep. Was I better at it? Yep.
But I still hated with a passion the long runs where I went past 30 minutes 😂 And you guessed it… I never signed up for that half marathon and never even got past 3 miles at once on average. I went through a whole period where I told myself that I sucked… that I needed to just run more… That I needed to just push harder and eventually I will like it. #alllies
~
It’s kind of like butter nut squash… No matter how many times I try it , no matter how many times people tell me it’s great… I just don’t like it 😂

So after that summer I vowed to never go running just because I felt like I had to… or to prove to anyone that I was fast. ~
Instead, I run now with music blasting , slower than a turtle… 10+ minute miles....and freaking enjoy my sloth like nature. 🤓 AND I will often enter FUN runs. Because I like the word FUN 😂😂
~
In this book FINISH I am reading… He talks a lot about goals… And how we all make too big of goals in the beginning and we take the JOY out of it to begin with...because goals somehow shouldn’t be fun. ~
My case in point? I hate long runs and THAT IS OK. ~
Make goals that are smaller. Work out three times this week instead of seven. Make your bed four times instead of every single day. Drink 8 ounces more of water today. Cut out 1 soda this week. Be a good mom most days this week instead of feeling like you have to figure it out all the time… 🤷🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️
~
And bring back the JOY in your goals ❤️

What a great way to start the day, in my Hawaii Nei.

Two varieties of Ahi (yellowfin tuna) Poke’. The authentic Hawaiian Classic version, Limu Ahi Poke & a modern interpretation, I presume to appease the modern “Mainlander’s” palate, California Style Ahi Poke (reminiscent of California Roll Sushi perhaps?). Washed down with a fresh glass of high quality Orange Juice... Broke da’ mouth! (*So delicious it makes your jaw ache).
...
For the Hawaiian impaired: *Poke /poʊˈkeɪ/ (Hawaiian for "to section" or "to slice or cut") is a raw fish salad served as an appetizer in Hawaiian cuisine, and sometimes as a main course.
...
*Limu. A type of seaweed. Hawaiian for algae.
- Limu is still enjoyed by modern Hawaiians but has become increasingly difficult to find because of over-picking, pollution, and construction in watersheds. ...
Have a wonderful day friends & Aloha to all!

Last wake up in Paradise ☀️ I’ll miss the fresh ocean breeze, rain on the palms and yes, even the roosters at 4am 🐓

“I told her we were going to get married, and all she could talk about was frogs.
She said there's these hills where it's hot and rains all the time, and in the rainforests there are these very tall trees and right in the top branches of the trees there are these like great big flowers called . . . bromeliads, I think, and water gets into the flowers and makes little pools and there's a type of frog that lays eggs in the pools and tadpoles hatch and grow into new frogs and these little frogs live their whole lives in the flowers right at the top of the trees and don't even know about the ground, and once you know the world is full of things like that, your life is never the same.”

The ascent into the mountains is like walking into a greenhouse; the air is thick with life and as humid as the ocean 🌿

Hawaiian memories pf.2: “ Sunrise on the beach” ☀️

When the clouds and the sea meet, it’s just a beautiful mess of blue💙 breathtaking view of Chinaman’s Hat island✨
When all 4 boys are older, we will definitely try to wade across the shallow waters from the mainland onto the island and explore it (well, maybe kayak it there, at least😅) .
