Attacking Our Long-Term Goals


When attacking my long-term goals, it usually takes 6 to 7 years for them to manifest. I have one goal that is on its 12th year. To quell the worry monster inside us from wondering if we will get there, or if all these years of work are worth it, we can keep working on each project step by step, day by day to knock off many small wins until we reach our vision. Each small win gives us a dopamine rush or feelings of accomplishment! Also, we can be like water, and adjust to receive different variations of our dreams.

Last night you came to me.


Last night you came to me

You gave me three songs

One for our pain

Two for our love

And three for our tomorrow

I work on what I can today


To distract me from worrying about tomorrow, I work on what I can today.

At times we decline opportunities to pursue our dreams, which causes us stress. I’ve been through it with my political and legal career, and now I’m going through it with my recent goals in the private sector. Focusing on what I can work on now has helped me move forward on my journey, even through the roughest parts. I wish you the best in your journey. I’m feeling you and cheering for you!

With Warmest Aloha, Jon

Confined In My Mind


Confined in my mind.

Let me out, I want to scream.

Cutting my own chains.

Pretend For One Day


I still think of you.

Even if you never cared.

Pretend for one day.

I Feel You In It


This stone protects me.

A lucky stone you told me.

I feel you in it.

You Dance In My Dreams


It has been some time.

I protect you from afar.

You dance in my dreams.
