You can have meaning in your life through your creativity!


You can have meaning in your life through your creativity!

Having a Meaningful LifeΒ – Part 1 of 3! πŸ‘Š

In the mission statement of Positive Masters, we want you to be happy & have a fulfilling life. One of the key points to achieving this, is to have meaning in your life. To attain this, you must have a wide view of your life in order to see the whole spectrum of meaning & values that you can embrace. If your view of yourself is narrow, you may miss those precious gems within you that could sparkle joy in your life. ❀

You can have meaning in your life through your (1) creativity, (2) experiences, & (3) attitude. In this article, let’s discuss creativity. πŸ’‘

When you create a value for yourself & others through a service or product, you have purpose. If you’re passionate about that service or product, then even better because your work doesn’t feel like work because you enjoy doing it.Β You ever notice how time passes by smoothly & quickly when you’re working on something you’re passionate about? Notice how your focus on your passionate project pushes away any of your worries &/or sadness. You’re in the flow! This is the greatest state to be in to create value for yourself & others. For me, writing this article for you gives me great joy! 😊❀

Fun Homework: Write down 10 things you enjoy that could provide value for yourself & others. Then write down 10 ways or variations on how to execute on your creation of each of those 10 things you enjoy. There may be a company or non-profit organization that you could join to create those passions of yours. If not, you could create a new company or non-profit organization to provide this value. Have fun on this! ✍ πŸ’» πŸ“‘ ✌

I still love you even though you’re far away.


These days, all I do is work, living in the fray.-5

These days, all I do is work, living in the fray. πŸ“–

I check off my calendar every day. πŸ“…

Sometimes I pause and wonder if you’re okay. ❀

Keep shining from the other side. πŸŒ…

I still love you even though you’re far away. ❀❀

How far would you go for the one you love?


How far would you go for the one you love?

We can do a lot when we’re single because we can push ourselves to the limits until our body and mind needs to sleep. Being on our own, we have a great amount of control of our direction and momentum. However, being alone can be lonely at times.

A relationship with a significant other can either boost us or slow us down. It can make us happier or more miserable. 😊πŸ˜ͺ

When you fall in love, how far are you willing to go? How much are you willing to sacrifice? When things aren’t going right, do you follow your gut feelings, and if so, to what extent? β€πŸ’”

By the way, I love Game of Thrones!!! β„πŸΊπŸ²πŸ”₯

Come with me. Let’s get away. We can go where we’re normal.


We can be strange.

A little deranged.

All caused by our magic.

Come with me.

Let’s get away.

We can go where we’re normal.

I find comfort in the dark.


I find comfort in the dark.

When it’s still, that’s when she comes.

We don’t speak, yet we talk.

I play a song for her.

In the middle of my room, we dance.

Everything I do. It’s for the future you.


Everything I do.

It’s for the future you.

They say, “It won’t count.”

Well, it’s not for them with all of their doubts.

I’ll make sure it’ll be there for you, high in the clouds.

Hawaii Buddhist Council service at National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, May 20, 2019 at Oahu, Hawaii.


This morning was beautiful at Punchbowl Cemetery or the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, May 20, 2019 at Oahu, Hawaii. The Hawaii Buddhist Council, in which I’m a member of had a service for all the veterans. My late great uncle Roy Okubo was a member of the 522nd Artillery and 442nd Regimental Combat Team during World War II.
