When times get tough, love yourself more! ❤️


When times get tough, love yourself more! During times of hardship, having alone time to replenish your energy is important. Activities such as self-reflection, meditation, reading, taking a nice walk outside, listening to a motivating podcast, journaling, drawing, designing, and creative writing can lift your spirit.

My friends, if you’re going through a slump, I feel you. There are days, I get up and question myself. “Why do I keep going?” When I restate my personal mission statement, I’m empowered by my “why,” so I keep doing my best. Sending positive energy to you! 🙌

Nothing is fair. Understanding this will set you free from regret and resentment.


Nothing is fair. Understanding this will set you free from regret and resentment. Why? Because what seems fair for you may not be seen as fair for someone else.

Look at our careers. What you bring to the table in your business or job will be seen differently by each individual. 🤔⁠

The same goes for punishment. Why do you think the judges and juries make widely different decisions in sentencing people for offenses? We all have our own biases and perceptions. That’s why a person with a conviction of a violent crime can have a fine while a person convicted of a non-violent crime can go to prison. Us humans, with all our flaws, operate in shades of gray. 🙈⁠

We can only do our best to see the big picture and understand all parties involved in an issue. Hopefully, everyone involved can find the fairest agreement possible – not 100% fair but fairest possible, which involves compromise. If people lie, have shaky reasoning, or have extreme biases, they have to live with it. People will eventually avoid them. Whatever the outcome, you must do all you can to accept it as it is. Whatever is done, is done. Even if the outcome is lopsided, for the sake of your inner peace, you must accept it. If you don’t, you’ll be haunted by regret and/or resentment that will eat away your soul. 😱⁠

My friends, if you’re going through challenging issues, I sincerely wish you inner peace. It’ll be tough at first, but you’ll eventually smile, and then over time, you’ll feel bits and pieces of happiness. Keep going until you’re fully lit from the inside out with positive energy! 👊⁠

Start your day fresh! Every morning is a brand new day for you to crush it! ⁠

I like to launch my day by being grateful for my existence. I express my thanks for all my loved ones and all the good things I have in my life. Then I brush my teeth, make my bed, and get dressed. ⁠

I enjoy making myself a hot cup of green tea, which has L-theanine, an amino acid that gives you a calm feeling combined with clarity and alertness from the caffeine. I also enjoy drinking coffee, but I usually have a cup of green tea first to get the L-theanine in my system. 🍵☕⁠

Next, I’ll have breakfast and review my Google calendar. I input all of my small goals for the day into my calendar. In the evening, I add up all my wins I achieved for the day. 💻⁠

Shown in this picture is our Positive Masters 2nd Logo Women’s Fit T-Shirt and Dream Cloud Mantra 15 oz Mug. You can purchase them at http://www.positivemasters.com ! 🛍️⁠

Have an awesome day! No matter what happens today, good or bad, tomorrow is another day for you to crush it! 👊⁠

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

Death has always loved Life.


Death has always loved Life like a boy who knows he can never be with the girl he loves. Rather than being jealous of us for having Life, he wants us to appreciate her.

Haiku #5


Stay under their view.

Surpass them and they will kill.

It’s in their nature.
