30 Days to Happiness: H is for Hawaii

Hawaii3“There’s no place on earth like Hawaii.” Hawaii is my goal word for “H.” As I go through my list each day, I enjoy that moment to think about Hawaii.  Renewal, refreshing, tranquility meet me in that moment. I believe that when we let our imagination embrace those sandy beaches and enticing waters, we widen the funnel through which creativity flows. As we open ourselves up to let our imagination soar across the country and across the Pacific Ocean, God pours fresh ideas and new insights into our spirit.

Here are a few of my impressions, a list of places to see in Hawaii, and a link to a great blog for us to follow when we take our next trip there.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
