A healthy and balanced life as a Hawaiian begins with the spirit of aloha. Aloha is a much embraced, but often misunderstood them. The meaning of aloha embraces everything from hello and goodbye, to love, caring, sharing, goodwill to all, and is defined as a way of life.
The more powerful meaning is found in its direct translation, ha meaning breath of life. The ancient greeting of aloha was originally reserved for loved once and close family. It involves rubbing noses, saying aloha and inhaling each other's breath ( or ha ) This is considered the most heartfelt and sincere welcome - to share your life energy with another person - and is the foundation of aloha.

The man who said "I'd rather be lucky than good" saw deeply into life. People are afraid to face how great a part of life is dependent on luck. It's scary to think so much is out of one's control. There are moments in a match when the ball hits the top of the net, and for a split second, it can either go forward or fall back. With a little luck, it goes forward, and you win. Or maybe it doesn't, and you lose.

There's something to be said about a glass half full. About knowing when to say when. I think it's a floating line. A barometer of need and desire. It's entirely up to the individual. And depends on what's being poured. Sometimes all we want is a taste. Other times there's no such thing as enough, the glass is bottomless. And all we want, is more.

You know how when you were a little kid and you believed in fairy tales, that fantasy of what your life would be, white dress, prince charming who would carry you away to a castle on a hill. You would lie in bed at night and close your eyes and you had complete and utter faith. Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, Prince Charming, they were so close you could taste them, but eventually you grow up, one day you open your eyes and the fairy tale disappears. Most people turn to the things and people they can trust. But the thing is its hard to let go of that fairy tale entirely cause almost everyone has that smallest bit of hope, of faith, that one day they will open their eyes and it will come true.
