Work/life balance. Thirty years ago this intangible term, this ideal was nonexistent and now thanks to many GenXers (like myself), it has become something to aspire, to acheive...to just catch a glimpse of that ever elusive, white unicorn...okay, okay so I'm being more than a little melodramatic but you get the gist.

Now it has become the buzzword in leadership training, HR staff development manuals and in conversations at Friday after work drinking get-togethers (aka-Pau Hana).

The question that always plagued me: Does a "professional" who is passionate about both career and family/friends/community really ever obtain true work life balance?  I've found personally for me each day skews a little more towards one or the other and while there are days where I truly feel a "balance" they are far and few in between...and I agree with Mr. Pichette the real tough choices in life are choosing between the two at any given moment and it's usually the one that needs the most attention that wins out.

Congrats on your new freedom Mr. Pichette. Carpe Diem. Carpe Diem.

Beliefs are really so powerful. Once we have formed these beliefs they shape and define us more than reality of the past, present, future, other people or our environments do.

Multi-faceted gal from the 808
Introduction
Multi-faceted local gal who is not your typical anything, a walking contradiction who laughs at the edge of the cliff and then hangs on for dear life.

I like to laugh and make people laugh. I'm trying to practice not taking life or myself so seriously. It may sound absurd but I think trying to find the humor in the thick of the craziness of life is one of the smartest things a person can do. People should laugh and they should do it often. People are so attractive when they smile and laugh...and a smile is so contagious, something that I'd wanna "spread" around.

I am currently on a journey of discovery. I long to discover myself, who I am, what I want to be when I grow up, etc. I am in the process of re-defining myself, getting out-of-the-box so to speak. So far it's been an interesting ride...

My 2014 mantra (I have two because I feel that they go hand-in-hand): 
"Think what you feel, say what you think, do what you say, feel what you do." - Eric L. Mott
"Happiness is when what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony." - Mahatma Ghandi

My 2013 mantra: 
"I stand here on the summit of the mountain. I lift my head and I spread my arms. This, my body and spirit, this is the end of the quest. I wished to know the meaning of all things. I am the meaning. I wished to find a warrant for being. I need no warrant for being, and no word of sanction upon my being. I am the warrant and the sanction. Neither am I the means to any end others may wish to accomplish. I am not a tool for their use. I am not a servant of their needs. I am not a sacrifice on their alters.” 
― Ayn RandAnthem

What I'm diggin' in life: I love my daughters. I like: triangles, blue, green, purple, Mondrian, Rainer Maria Rilke, citrus scents, the smell of rain, coffee, mind maps, Erykah Badu, Joan Jett, others' points of view, affirmations, Jags (altho ask me if I ever owned one or ever will?), art galleries, dancing, Edward Norton, John Cusack, Hugh Jackman, Sean Connery (now, not so much when he was 007 altho in my opinion he was one of the best next to Roger Moore), (in relation to Connery) irish/scottish/australian accents but only on men, watching live performances, Charlize Theron, Ashley Judd, Natalie Portman, wedges (a type of woman's footwear for those who aren't familiar with the term...its a chick thing), boots, foot massages, catching a nice breeze, spooning, food, drinks, my job and sometimes doing absolutely nothing.

My dislikes in life: cigarettes, serious country music (sorry, I just can't dig it), lies (especially when there's no reason for it), flaky people, unpreparedness, ignorant people who talk too much or too loud, intolerant people, traffic, bad music/radio /commentary while in traffic, litter and overly stupid movies.

I am blessed to be from Hawaii (born and raised)...in my not-so-humble opinion it's the best place to raise children.  Very cosmopolitan...all races, ages, religions, etc. which makes it a little bit more tolerant towards different people and different lifestyle choices, etc. The Hawaiian culture, amazing stories, beautiful scenery,  great weather and awesome people.
