Exercised for the 117th time in 2017!


Today, October 3, 2017, I exercised for the 117th time in 2017. Early this morning, I lifted weights at 24 Hour Fitness in Mililani, Hawaii, and then I ran a quick 2.5 miles in Waikele, Hawaii before my meeting. Yesterday, my doctor and I were very happy with my physical examination results!

My Drug, My Medicine – Exercise


Hana hou (one more time in Hawaiian language)! Woke up with my hair sticking up and put on my exercise clothes for motivation to produce more happy chemicals from my drugs – talking about exercise boys and girls. One of the best ways to get a natural high. Cut it up for inner peace!

Keep flying with positivity!


When you work hard and put yourself out there, people will judge you, hate you, and punish you harder, but you keep going for the smiles and tears on the faces you’ve helped. Keep flying with positivity my friends!

Sending Positive Energy


Stop the madness by breathing in slowly, then exhaling slowly. Lower your heartrate. Become one with your soul. Think of love, and fill yourself up with energy. When charged up, send your love/energy to another. Aaaahh, it feels so good!

How Many Stars Will I Kill Tonight?


How many stars will I kill tonight?

Thousands if I let my dark voices in with no fight.

Quel my fears with a lasso I can hold.

Yank them to the side, and focus on the things I can control.

Cherish everything that brings me joy.

Sure tomorrow can be great,

but right now is what I must appreciate.
