Reach out!

Today, once again I was reminded how fragile life really is. 

Today, we buried another 50 something year old well before his time.

Today, I learned that all five of my friends died alone with either a broken spirit or body.

Today, I realized more than ever that life has become too busy.

Today, I’m going through the motions to satisfy our ever need.

Today, I should be reaching out to those who are alone just to make sure they are OK.

Today, I will make it a priority to reach out at least once a week to those who are vulnerable.

Today,  I saw some friends I have not seen in a long time. The meeting only happened because it was too late for a common friend.

Tomorrow, we get another chance to make things right or do we or will we?

Reach out and touch someone TODAY!



Challenges of Change!

We are in the midst of transformational change in Healthcare, just in case you have not noticed. Change is sometimes a choice however in our current Healthcare economic crisis, it is thrust upon us and better be ready to join the ride or risk to be left behind.

We can either run for the hills or embrace the opportunity to make significant improvements to our current systems.

Change rarely feels right at onset however if its done for the right reason based on solid practices, one will quickly see the benefits first in person before it can be measured from a far.

To prepare yourself for change, one needs to adjust their attitude by opening your shoulders thereby allowing new information to be received, processed and implemented.

It truly takes positude to ensure that you will commit enough time to drive success.

Change can only be effective if we remain proactive and receptive to change for long enough allowing a new norm to be established.

When it is your turn, embrace change with positude, be the change agent you want to see, lead through turbulent waters and have the stamina to see it through.



Make Positude Politics Great Again!

I have intentionally refrained from commenting publicly on our election cycle to prevent any turmoil within my own circle of friends or workplace.

Now that we have a duly elected our President-elect  Donald J. Trump as our fore fathers had intended, it is time to bring some positude into politics.

Both sides resorted to rhetoric that is Z rated to say the least. We need to transition from an election cycle filled with a plethora of false promises to making decisions good for our country and therefor its citizens.

I encourage the ruling parties to be collaborative and the opposition to protest peacefully using their constitutional rights to its fullest extend.

The President is the chief representative of all the people and should work for the people. His cabinet should be representative of our culture and ethnic make up including fair representation regardless of creed, sex, orientation or religion.

Bring positude back into politics means that we create solutions that are negotiated not imposed upon us. It means that all sides were heard and represented around the table where all sides have to give and take a little.

I’m truly hopeful that this will be the future of Washington. 

Foremost, I’m grateful to live in a Nation where one can believe in whatever and feel free to express this in a peaceful manner. Don’t abuse these rights!

May God Bless our Nation and make Positude Politics Great Again!

Love sometimes hurts!

Eleven years ago, I stood on a sandy white beach on the windy side of Maui waiting for my bride. 

I remember it like yesterday, everything was just right, beautiful weather, breezy wind, smell of fresh seafood from Mamma’s Fish House and awesome friends waiting to witness our vows.

I finally got to kiss my bride, sweet like nectar, smooth as silk.

Fast forward 11 years later, she is more beautiful than ever. Bright and full of passion, driven and guided by love for family and friends.

I look forward to live in Positude with my bride for at least another Century.

I love you dearest, it might not always be easy however true love sometimes hurts.

You are forever mine!
