I’ve been hearing several laments about 2016, about goals which remain unattainable, expectations gone awry, and sadness for people we have lost this year.
Yesterday, I ran across this artful coaching tacked onto one of my Pinterest boards, and thought it was worth sharing, especially in light of our current value study of ‘IMI OLA: This year remains in your hands, and it is far from over.

From Managing with Aloha, Second Edition: ‘Imi ola Preamble
You have choices, and you are able to make the best choice,
designing the form your life will take.
‘Imi ola places the ability to achieve your purpose in your own hands,
giving you the clear understanding that you have the power to create your own destiny.
The value of ‘Imi ola seeks life at its very best.
I love that this artful poster coaches us to “strive for contentment.” Good advice.
“You may feel there is much to be done, however, a feeling of contentment is possible when you feel the path ahead is one that is right for you, one where you will enjoy the journey… you know you are where you need to be. Contentment dishes up feelings of being at peace, of being calm, stress-free, and tranquil. It’s a feeling we call ma‘alahi in Hawai‘i.”

Give yourself a break this Thanksgiving week. It’s okay to be happy with a calm life. Really.
