A  L  O  H  A   from   Honolulu!

“ To overcome the anxieties 
and depressions of 
contemporary life, 
individuals must become
 independent of the 
social environment to 
the degree that they 
no longer respond exclusively
 in terms of its 
rewards and punishments. -

" To achieve such autonomy,
 a person has to learn
 to provide rewards 
to herself. -

- She has to develop the ability 
to find enjoyment and 
purpose regardless 
of external

We keep trying,
keep flying.

Thank You
for winging

Seize Be Endure

A  L  O  H  A   from  Honolulu!
" Seize the moments
 of happiness, love 
and be loved!
 That is the only reality 
in the world,
 all else is folly. "

" What it means to be authentic:

- to be more concerned with truth than opinions

- to be sincere and not pretend

- to be free from hypocrisy: "walk your talk"

- to know who you are and to be that person

- to not fear others seeing your vulnerabilities

- being confident to walk away from

 situations where you can't be yourself

- being awake to your own feelings

- being free from others' opinions of you

- accepting and loving yourself "

                                    Sue Fitzmaurice

“The beauty of a woman. . .
 true beauty in a Woman
 is reflected in her soul.
 It is the caring that 
she lovingly gives, 
the passion that she knows. 
And the beauty 
of a woman, 
with passing years
 only grows!” 
                Audrey Hepburn


Thank You
for sharing
these moments!
