A Moment Of Peace From Hawaii

Aloha, from Hilton Head. Yes, I am back to the grind (if you call living on Hilton Head and working at H3 the grind). As I mentioned in my last blog, the best thing about returning from vacation is the knowing that I am coming home to a beautiful place and a job I enjoy. I promise that this is the last time I will talk about my trip, but I had to share one more amazing experience that we had with you. On our last day in Maui, we wanted to keep it simple—nothing too strenuous because we were facing the long trip home that evening. So we consulted our excellent guide book, Maui Revealed, for some ideas.
 

We decided to take a drive along the scenic northwest coast of Maui. The road was described as narrow and windy and we were cautioned to drive slowly and keep our eyes on the road (difficult to do with the incredibly beautiful scenery). Well, we soon found out that narrow meant REALLY narrow, in fact one lane in many places, with one stretch of road being one lane for a whole 1.5 miles. Not only was it narrow, there were many sections without guardrails and sheer cliffs only a few feet away from our tires. The picture below gives you pretty good idea of what road was like.

I can tell you that there were times my heart rate was as high as it gets during a vigorous cardio workout. Having said that, when we had the chance to pull off the road, and take in the views on solid ground, it provided one of the most relaxing and calming moments of our time on Hawaii.

Sometimes when things get hectic and the stressors of life begin to pile up, it’s good to take a mental break, stop, close your eyes, and think about something pleasant or calming. It doesn’t make the stress go away but it might help put it in perspective—or least create a temporary reprieve. Here is the picture I am going to see in my mind’s eye the next time I need to take that mental break.
