“If there were in the world today any large number of people who desired their own happiness more than they desired the unhappiness of others, we could have a paradise in a few years.”  Bertrand Russell

IKR?  Why do we waste so much energy “hating” rather than loving??  It’s so exhausting!  If I don’t like or don’t agree with someone’s position or behavior  I just choose to not associate with them.  I don’t wish them ill will.  Where does that get you?  I feel sad for the person who chooses to live in negativity, and I certainly find myself there from time to time.  However, I believe that if that’s where I choose to be – in the negative – then that’s what I’m going to attract in to my experience of life.  Fortunately, I can choose to walk away , or work through it, when I see it coming!

We arrived in Paradise today.  Kauai, HI is my version of Paradise anyway.  I just love it here . . . in the span of an hour you can go from the warm southern climes with broad sweeping beaches and resort areas, to the northern lush tropical side with more rugged, less populated beaches and wild volcanic shores.  We are attracted to the Northern Shores with it’s rugged and less traveled vistas.  We’re lucky to have the opportunity to spend almost a month here this year.  We are able to work from a distance, which really helps!  We’re getting to the point that it’s really tough to come over for just a week.  By time we get settled in, it’s time to go home!  We’ve seen alot of the Island already, but I love to come back and see if we can find new gems to explore.  Geo-caching is a favorite pass time – we’ve found many secluded, out of the way spots doing this.  And of course – with my new photography gear and increasing knowledge  . . . I hope to be posting some pretty awesome shots over the next few weeks.  

It’s really tough to be negative here!

Stay tuned . . .
