Beach Walk 767- Be Happy with Just One Thing

Is it crazy to go to the beach on Saturday morning and start thinking about all that I did not get finished that week? Maybe not, as I came up with a new strategy to help me manage the incredible creeping to do list that continues to grow like some out of control virus. Watch the video then keep reading!

You know we keep reading about the data showing we are creating new information at an extraordinary speed – a speed at which we as individuals cannot really understand much less manage. Yet we go about our days as if life were the same as it was a decade or two ago. Our habits and our processes have not updated. We still cling to beliefs of how things must be done – because we’ve always done them that way or because we used to take comfort in doing them that way.

But now, things are reversed and we have far more freedom than we have time. Freedom to create like never before, to connect across the globe and even into space, to construct both systems and structures that are freakishly awesome. So stop bemoaning the lack of time and embrace the abundance of freedom.

I recently went to TedxMaui – a beautifully produced event. Yet I left after lunch – as I was literally full of the shared message to follow your dreams, be yourself, strike out and claim your life. Imagine if we measured inspirational events by how quickly the audience dissipated, because they “got it” and were off doing it? I just love having these wacky thoughts!

Last week I had a Divine Openings session, that had been scheduled a few days earlier. By the time we spoke, my client said, “You know, things started shifting after I made the appointment. I realized [this and that] and actually, I get it! I don’t really have that much to sort out now. Yes, it can be this easy.

Have a great week! Love, Rox

From Service Dog to Surfice Dog – thanks Celeste!

As I am here stretching and reaching to get out of my cocoon and transform into a truer version of me, a Beach Walks viewer sends me this link from YouTube about an amazing dog. I am totally inspired and hope you will be too. Thanks so much Celeste! You can meet Celeste in this episode of BeachWalks.tv.

Love, Rox

Beach Walk 742 – Huli Heaven

It’s been a long time since we’ve been out on the water together. Our friends Eric, Stacey, and Kaile got a new 4-man outrigger canoe. Shane, Eric, and I took it out – saving a seat for you! I have missed being on the water, and hope you enjoy this episode – oh so Hawaii.

Huli means to roll over in Hawaiian, and though we caught several awesome waves, we also caught a 360! It was a great day, made better in my memory by the amazing song, "The Ocean" by Barefoot Truth. Please follow that link to iTunes and purchase a copy in support of them. Mahalo to MadGringo for sending us box of t-shirts and tops – Eric said of his, “This is the coolest shirt ever!”

Hawaiian word:
Huli: to turn, to curl over

Beach Walk 725R – Deeply, Oddly, True

Originally shared as Beach Walk 573.
We watched an episode of The Iconoclasts last night with surfer Laird Hamilton and Pearl Jam singer Eddie Vedder. Both are celebrities of course, and they also are living their true natures, deeply and truly. What if permission isn’t required to be yourself? What if the part of us we think is the broken or odd part is actually the truest part? Food for thought for Monday.

Pau’aka: _odd_ (Hawaiian as well as English has many negative connotations for the concept of odd.)

Beach Walk 615 – Surfing: I think therefore I can

Rainy again today so it was a late run to the beach, as the tide was high and there was a big swell in town!

Lots of people out surfing at Flat Island in the distance (wish I were there!) and it was a great segue for a blog post I read this morning from my friend Richard Noll, “I am and therefore I can”:http://sciencespirit.blogspot.com/2008/04/i-am-and-therefore-i-can.html. I mis-remembered the quote in the episode, but hey! That is what show notes are for. :-) And actually, I like both iterations of the thought – I find them both liberating and supportive of trying new things, getting out of the box.

Hawaiian word:
Nalu: _surf_
