The children in our lives can inspire us to continue being curious and have that excited desire to learn.


Howzit! What’s up! I love this moment with my #niece on February 16, 2019 at Salt Our Kaka’ako @saltourkakaako in Honolulu, Hawaii. Everyday, #children #learn exponentially with their desire to find out what they don’t understand. They have an immense amount of #curiosity . The children in our lives can inspire us to continue being #curious and have that excited #desire to learn.

Stay curious my friends! Sending positive energy to you!

With Warmest Aloha,
Jon

Our “why” in life is very clear when we have little ones in our hearts! 😊

Time with our loved ones is valuable


I was so lucky to spend time with my younger sister and my baby niece in February 2019 when they came to Oahu, Hawaii for my baby sister’s baby shower, which I helped to prepare! Here, my niece’s laughter and smile is so cute!!!

The speed in which a baby develops is a great example on how valuable time is. I dedicate every Sunday for my family in person and by video calling my family in the San Francisco Bay area. My parents, baby sister, brother-in-law, and I fly out about twice a year to be with my sister, brother-in-law, and nieces on the U.S. Mainland. We hang out in California or travel to different places. They also visit us in Hawaii. Further, I do my best to attend all of my extended family’s gatherings and events. I also spend some time with my friends.

We don’t know how much time we have to live. Neither can we predict how much time our loved ones will live. When I’m with my loved ones, I do my best to be present and absorb all I can, every moment. I love my family and friends. May you have joy with your loved ones as well. Take care!

With Warmest Aloha,
Jon

Dragons & Tigers


The world of imagination is where the magic lives. My niece and I create worlds where dragons and tigers make friends with different life forms and collect different powers to protect the universe from the darkness that exist among all beings and creatures. The lessons in our make-believe realms can play a huge role in our daily reality, even our life’s purpose. Here, we’re playing at a playground.

Happy Baby!


My baby niece has a pleasant personality. Hopefully her happy genetics will compound over time and become super when she incorporates positive living practices as she grows older. She’s an inspiring and lovable little girl.

Spend Time With Your Loved Ones


Personally, I believe in spending fun time with our loved ones. When I was a politician, my calendar was extremely packed with events. As a result, I missed out on some gatherings with my family. Now, I put way more effort to spend time with those who will always be there for me in good times and bad. In our career, people are often around us because they want something for their cause, career, business, or personal lives, which is natural. I’m just saying when you’re down in the gutter, sad, financially broke, sick, or dying, who will be there to comfort you, even help to pick you up? Those few people will be your loved ones. Go and enjoy things with them!

Here, my 3-year-old niece is petting a goat at the San Diego Zoo on October 17, 2018. Cute stuff!

Inbetween your hustle for your dreams, have fun with your loved ones my friends!

With Warmest Aloha,
Jon

Gratitude + Anything Is Possible


I learned gratitude from my mom. She has also encouraged me to try new things since I was a child. Anything is possible is what my mom instilled in me. I share with her and my dad every plan I have.

Here’s my mom and my baby niece at Pearl Ridge Center, Aiea, Hawaii on 8/2/2018.

It is what it is. What will be, will be.


On my last night visiting my sister Mia and her family in the Bay Area, California, I was playing make-believe with my niece Elyse, as we did a number of times while I was there. We gained supernatural powers and met with mystical and magical beings and creatures in various realms. A poison dragon exhaled some poison. I covered my mouth and told my niece that I was poisoned. “No, it’s trying to help you,” Elyse exclaimed. She grabbed a thick book belonging to my sister and read, “It is what it is. And what will be, will be.” I needed to hear those words, and its impact was huge because it came from my 5-year-old niece.
