Hawaii

The place where I find the most peace and joy is in my room.  Here I am able to look out my window to the beautiful view of the windward side of Oahu.  My room is a place of tranquility where I can escape to from all the craziness going on.  I enjoy gazing out my window to appreciate the beauty of the Ko’olau mountains, the Pacific Ocean and my hometown of Kailua.

When I’m in my room, I stop thinking about all that is on my mind and just relax and let go.  I kind of fall into a dream where I get away to my own safe haven.  When I’m stressed, I lie in my bed and relax with no distractions around me and focus on all of the positive things in my life.

At times, I kneel down and pray to God so that I can tell him what is stressing me out and he can offer his advice to me.  I also think about all the people that love me and talk to some people who can try to calm me down so I can be less tense and worrisome.

I think that I’m best when I’m in my room because I can stop and pause to reflect on my life and how I am doing.  I tend to be very content when I’m here because I can have my time away from everyone to collect my thoughts.  I tend to be in the greatest mood here because I can ponder of everything in my life that is meaningful.  

My favorite place on earth is church because there I pray to God and he listens to anything and everything I have to say.  Church is super unique because I’m in God’s home and there is no better place to be then with him.  Even though I can’t see him, I still believe he is there in spirit with his presence in the word.  He heals all of us no matter what sins we have committed.

This place is special to my entire family, too, because it’s a place of worship where we can come together and be united as one ‘ohana (family) every week.

These are my Latitudes.
