…Mey here a bit tired this night before Thanksgiving, played a lot with my 2 year old son Jordan, and now getting in my daily blog post on Enjoy The Moment – Key To Freedom

…all the stuff in your life, on financial freedom, your health, your relationships…whatever is going on…

…life is still always about enjoying the moment!

 

…that’s the only way to truly attain any kind of freedom, in the present moment…

…when we are thinking of the past or the future, or other places, or anything but the present moment, we are imprisoned by our mind…’

…in the end, break free of the mind and see where you are – here, and now!

…and enjoy it =)

 

…this is a video I made today when I was sitting on rocks at Ala Moana Beach park, enjoying the moment…

…I hope you enjoy it too!

 

P.S. I love people, and when I asked a group of supportive friends and colleagues how I could talk to people, write, and read AND make a lot of money, we came up with one thing, and that was blogging…

…so I invite you to consider for yourself, what would you enjoy doing?

The Romantic Story of Wealth in the Hawaiian Islands – The Bishop Museum

…Mey here after a great morning with my family at the Bishop Museum here in Honolulu Hawaii, blogging about The Romantic Story of Wealth in the Hawaiian Islands – The Bishop Museum…

…I had the privilege to take time out today with my family to learn more about Hawaiian culture at the Bishop Museum today…

…we got to watch a movie about Charles Reed Bishop, and the romantic story of him and Pauahi…

…he started going to her Mission School daily to visit her…

…she was the grand daughter of King Kamehameha, so was a Princess already promised to marry Prince Lott from her childhood…

…she ended up falling in love with Charles, wrote a letter to Prince Lott and her father telling them both that she would not be happy and did not love the Prince…

 

…the Prince wrote back to her and told her that he did not want her to be unhappy, so released her from her obligation…

…then at age 18 she married the older (by 7 years) Charles with a very small ceremony, where her parents did not attend…

…they ended up buying a house and discussing how to help the Hawaiian people…

…Charles ended up being very trusted by the Hawaiian government and ended up handling a lot of their business, and also ended up opening a bank…

…he was honest and trustworthy and also served on the Board of Education for over 20 years…

…at the young age of 52, Pauahi died and Charles ended up helping fulfill her wishes, by give a lot of her lands to Kamehameha School, Queens Hospital, Kapiolani Women’s and Children’s Hospital, St Andrew’s Priory school for girls, Mid Pacific school…

…he funded the building of Kamehameha schools, and everything that he did, he made sure that all the credit went to his late wife, Bernice Pauahi Bishop, who had inherited all of those lands…

…he ended up selling his bank, moving to San Francisco, and used the money to build the Bishop Museum, where he wanted to preserve all of the cultural artifacts that his wife had inherited…

…he died at age 93, on June 7, 1915…

…his remains were brought back to Hawaii…

…trustworthy, outward focused, and always in his integrity, Charles Bishop was a man who gave so much value he ended up with a large amount of wealth, which he used to better Hawaii…

Conclusion

…I was inspired by Mr. Bishop and his love story with Pauahi…

…even more so, their commitment to the Hawaiian people, and the unselfish way that he ended up distributing her inheritance as schools, hospitals and the Bishop Museum…

…it demonstrates how giving value and working diligently to change things so that the community is stronger, healthier and more empowered…

…gives great wealth, and an amazing legacy…

…what do you think of Mr. and Mrs. Bishop and their story?

…in the beginning their love was shunned by all including their parents…

…they lived a life the commanded respect…

…would you have donated all of that land?

…would you have created a museum to preserve Hawaiian culture?

…tell me your thoughts of their story in the comments below!

…fresh water means a lot to Hawaiians because if you found a source, then you could live…

…you could grow plants, drink water, etc…

…when I think about becoming financially free, I sometimes think that I want to become wealthy…

…the thing is I already am wealthy…

…afterall, I do have fresh water to drink yes?

…water is so important and I take it for granted a lot…

…I’m not saying not to have the finer things in life, however, this is a way was a great reminder to be grateful for all that we have…

…because fresh water is so important for all life!

…what is wealth to you?

…is it the air that we breath?

…is it your family?
