A Vow to Self

A Vow to Self

“Behind all resistance is fear. Behind all fear is a lack of faith in oneself.” ~Dina Bachelor Evan The thing that I love about marriage (besides not being married at the time I am writing this) is that it is a vow, an amazingly brave vow to take. It basically says that you will do the hard work it takes to learn, grow, be vulnerable, not hide, accept, love and support someone, even wh... »

There Is More

There Is More

Howdy! I rowed all four years in college.  It was an amazing time and I can honestly say that so much of my philosophies on life are based on my years as a competitive rower.  I learned about myself, what is possible or at least what was possible in the moments that existed then, about others, about stress, joy and love, and about perseverance.  I had never done team sports before college so I was... »

Jackpot!

Jackpot!

Hey there, What would you do if you won the lotto?  If you won a jackpot of $275 million dollars after taxes, what would you do?  What line of work, where would you live, how would you go about your daily life?  What would you change and what would stay the same?  I know that I have asked myself this question countless times.  Sometimes the only upgrades I would make have to do with my living spac... »

Love Revolution

Love Revolution

Hi!! How do we bring about change in one another?  How do we make the world a more loving and creative space?  What is the answer to the question of what or who will change the world?  The funny thing is the answer isn’t far-fetched or some equation that only two people know.  Michael Jackson sang about it, most spiritual leaders speak on it.  It is simple, it is profound, it is layered, it ... »

Blame Yourself

Blame Yourself

Howdy, Something that has always been a challenge with me in relationship is when someone says, “you made me angry, or you hurt my feelings, or you insert blame here.  I first stop caring almost immediately (true story) because blame and Aina are like oil and water.  I literally separate from myself from it.  Then I go into explaining how I cannot make anyone feel anything.  That is solely u... »

Success!

Success!

Aloha! The rain is coming down on Maui on my last night here.  It is appropriate since I will be heading into the rain of the Pacific North West.  The cruel truth is that rain here is warm and tropical, in Seattle it is cold and brutal.  My trip has been a fantastic journey, travel and food and working out and meeting awesome people.  However, I am very excited to come home.  I miss my bed, my thi... »

Go Forward, Move Ahead

Go Forward, Move Ahead

Hello, What have you decided you can or cannot accomplish?  What or who do you use as your guide to move forward?  Are you looking back at what is for others or what can be for you?  What is the key, how do we create our reality? Often when I ask someone about their health and fitness goals they will tell me that they want to lose weight and get toned.  That is the usual desire for most people.  I... »

Direct Yourself

Direct Yourself

Howdy! When is the last time you tried to tell someone what to do without being asked for help?  How did that work for you?  Sometimes we get caught up in the idea that our lives should be emulated by others we feel don’t have their lives ‘together’ or are directionless.  You have heard, and may have even said, that so and so should have their own place by now or should have some... »

Fun – Part I

Fun – Part I

Howdy!!! “People are always good company when they are doing something they really enjoy.”  Samuel Butler There are so many people who HATE their job.  Seriously, they are miserable.  You might be one of those people, I dunno.  Yet, they stay for years sometimes.  They refuse to give up on a dream that turned into a nightmare all the while sucking the very marrow out of their now swiss... »

Pot O’ Gold

Pot O’ Gold

Top o’ The Morning/Afternoon/Evenin’ To Ya! When things are just right, just where they need to be, there is a click.  It may be heard, it may be felt.  Either way you have a sense of knowing.  You know that you are exactly where you are supposed to be.  Everything is exactly how it needs to be.  That feeling is amazing.  Have you had it? When you are striving to reach a goal that isn&... »
