Time for Hawaii Time
As I get ready to head out on my well deserved and much needed vacation, it got me thinking about how Hawaiian people live on their own time - "Hawaii Time". Hawaii time is slowing down, taking a breath, and doing things at your own pace, all in good time. I was talking to my husband last night about how annoyed I will get if I have to wait in line at the Starbucks in Waikiki (there is a 99% chance of that happening) - when I realized that vacation is all about taking a break, slowing down and being able to unwind. Will it really matter if I have to wait 5 extra minutes for my Latte? Probably not. Maybe that's why living in Hawaii is such a dream - its Hawaii time all the time. Even if you are not in Hawaii for Thanksgiving, why not use the time to slow down, breathe deeply, and appreciate your surroundings. Aloha!
