Be Amazing , Have fun , do something new

Aloha everyone today was the Day
Something amazing
Aloha discovery leads to me to create something new at our place
Lets start with an Amazing person
I know a courageous person who runs an expressive arts school/ yoga classes and healing practice and works in customer service and had a vacation rental. She got such grief in reviews from the vacation and with customers( haters and online trolls she called them ) . She really tries to do her best for people. I am reminded that no mater how good a place is , or service is, some people just don't like small operators , alternative services, no ac , Hawaii or tropical conditions, and may have personal issues that beyond the scope of a rental property or service being offered.
Negative impact of negative behavior vs amazing good people
Besides being hard on staff the haters and trolls mislead people that wish for and are so stoked or happy to find the vacation rental or services not usually offered that is the best match for them.  So back to the good person, this person is amazing like the sun , everything she does is wonderful, yes i am a fan, anyway she creates and bring alternative classes and experience just not offered any where. Even in here customer service work , just someone showing up to work is big here in Kona. In Kona  visitors outnumber locals by 20 to 1 sometimes of the year and there is a shortage of people to help so many business shut down or do not make it. It is good to appreciate people who work to help others in this area. Back to this good person.
Let your light shine on for others
 I told her to not let the haters and online trolls poison her cup,  like Anthony Robins says. I also told her to be even better like Wayne Dyer says.
I felt so moved by her and her gifts she brings I decided to follow my own advice.
I will be Better too
 Here is something better
I am a bit afraid but here it goes . I am going to make quiche from the eggs and spinach we grow here at our place. I can't believe i am doing this . I used some sour cream , arugula, parsley, our spinach , our eggs and.... Here we go .... They turned out great i made some plain ones for the kids  too. The crust was too sweet so i passed on using it( almond and coconut flour or was it the coconut oil?) I cant wait to surprise my long running friends / guests who have returned for their third stay with us, and yes they got the couples VIP massage pack so i get to spoil them all the way.
only offered here, bummer for the folks elsewhere

These last few weeks
 we had football avocados , 8 different kind of avocado, sour sap, and 5 kind of papaya- papaya picking sessions

this last week and this week
we are doing Shamanic massage, Led blue light therapy, electomagnetic therapy, couples massage, star fruit , foot ball avocado, 3 kind of papaya, lychie, and the quiche we are preparing for a chef festival. WE also are offering 2 services for the price of one this week.Wednesday, thursday and friday only

I hope to bring one new surprise modality this week
Got to go the beach
 be sure to have fun this week
and
be Amazing

South West Makes travel to Hawaii the lowest cost in 30 years

That is right 49-199 each way
Alaskian and Hawaiian also are offering deals too
So not is it not only more affordable than ever
but interisland play is accessable again too.
You could spend a week on each island
or or go day hopping.
Some folks where paying 150-650 to go interisland but now that has all changed with fares of 49-75 each way or 100-150 round trip to different islands. How fun . I can only hope they bring back the unlimited travel for a week pass between the islands.
