The best teacher

2 Sep

I strongly believe that the greatest teachers in life don’t know they are teaching…

I believe my Uncle Tut was one of those teachers…

  1. Despite what people might think, to be “Hawaiian” doesn’t come from a bloodline – it comes from where your heart is. “It’s what lies in there”
  2. A person who lacks riches doesn’t mean they are poor. Be rich with life, not possessions. Those things fade away
  3. There’s always going to be worry, don’t waste your precious time doing it.


  4. Family, “OHANA” is all around you. Don’t ever feel alone. “Hanai”
  5. Any moment could be a moment you’ll remember for the rest of your life – make each day count.
    “Hawaiian Cinderella”, “What does rain smell like”.
  6. Complaining is weak.
    Thankfulness is strong.
  7. You don’t need millions to enjoy a million dollar view. God has you in Hawaii for a reason. Enjoy its beauty, culture and respect its’ Aina.
  8. You don’t have to have much to be a giver.
