Join us on a 3-mile downwind standup paddle run on Maui’s north shore with The Butterfly Effect crew!
We camped out last Friday as part of Dania Katz’s Kupu Maui event with Top Chef chefs Lee Anne Wong and Sheldon Simeon. Those folks were busy cooking so several of the overnight guests joined us on Beach Walks to share their gratitude.
What makes you happy? Is that an abstract thing that comes before or after you have money? Not only do we get to choose what makes us happy, I would say it is our duty to know, and then make it so!

Can you tell I am going for extreme brevity recently? I am conscious of the time-stress factor – heaven knows I have been grappling with that one for years! Now though, I realize that the energy can transmit as much or more than the actual words. So I intend to embed a quality of experience in these episodes, and to merely suggest a line of thought, a direction of feeling, so we can each carry it forward to the degree we wish. PLUS, we can have a more detailed discussion here or on Facebook!
Of course the silent messenger is that you must have money to have happiness. Or that you must choose between the two. Isn’t it crazy how we humans can concoct so many strong yet conflicting imperatives? To me, it is all just currency. The main point is to know what makes each of us happy! Because that is the energy that attracts all kinds of other good stuff to us, and generates all kinds of good outflows from us too. My friend Sylvia recently wrote a blog post, Happiness is Good for Your Website. She took a delightful and no-nonsense approach to the business basis for this, and the article itself literally bubbles over, for me, with the energy of happiness!
As I share the ever-developing “Beach Walks Philosophy,” one of the key goals is to unplug from so many old, rote beliefs that in fact rob us of being happy in the here and now of 2012. I lived under the shadow of that money is evil thing for decades until I realized everything smply has the energy I give it.

I rarely go to the beach in the middle of the day. However I had a meeting with my friend Melanie Boudar, who owns Sweet Paradise Chocolate here in Wailea on Maui. She brilliantly suggested we do via walking on the beach!
Melanie is an awesome business woman and I love hearing how she stays focused on her desires, while creating ways for others to help her grow her business – ways that are mutually beneficial. We both marveled at the pleasures of doing business on Maui (permitting not included…) because people just love sharing their networks and offering time-saving tips! This is such a contrast to my earlier days when I felt I had to do everything myself or didn’t trust sharing my ideas with others. Glad that stuff is in the past!
Fortunately she got stopped for a phone call and as I looked down the beach, this photo was my view. Had to share it with you!
