Thanks For The Memories

As most people spend time thinking about what they are thankful or grateful for around this time of year, we shouldn't overlook the more mundane, day to day things that should give us cause for a pause, a smile, a nod; like how about the simple fact that if you are watching this, you're on the right side of the grass.

Like how about the fact that no matter what else is going on with your life or the lives of those around you, you still have an opportunity while on this mortal coil to make a difference- in some way, no matter how large or small. When we spend too much time focusing on the manini and the details with our tunnel vision of stuff that's gotta get done, we often lose sight of the bigger picture. With over six-billion of us roaming the planet, it's easy to get lost in the shuffle and our daily rote lifestyles.

But you can provide a smile, a memory, an impactful lesson, a helping hand just by being you and reaching out a bit. Figure out how you want to make a positive impact, and then be that change that you want to see or be. No, it's not just rambling philosophical mumbo jumbo or psychobabble, it's really about you trying to make the concept of thanks and humility and humanity a concrete reality by taking charge and taking action and by being aware right here in Hawaii. And when you do that- be it big or small, often or infrequent- we should all say "thanks". Think about it…
