Celebration of Heroes

A L O H A From Honolulu!

First Olympic Surfing Gold Medal Winner:
Honolulu resident Carissa Moore!
With her, Hawaii's beloved father
of modern surfing:
Duke Kahanamoku, himself
a gold medal Olympic swimmer
(1924) and world icon.
"Duke Paoa Kahinu Mokoe Hulikohola Kahanamoku. A Proud Native Hawaiian born to a minor noble family less than three years before the overthrow of
the Hawaiian Kingdom."

Every second that you spend
on doubting your worth,
every moment that you use
to criticize yourself; is
a second of your life wasted,
is a moment of your life
thrown away. -

- It's not like
you have forever, so
don't waste any of
your seconds, don't
throw even one of
your moments away.
    C. JoyBell C.

Great Catch!

here's the catch:
The right place often
seems like the wrong place,
and the right time often
seems like the wrong time.
Mark Batterson

Everything is irrelevant but this:
to embrace life. To feel it.
To savor it. To love it.
   Marty Rubin

In youth, there can be
a feeling that time
moves too slowly. But,
as we age, the acceptance
that our time is limited
prompts the wise to
cherish each and
every moment.
Wayne Gerard Trotman
