Maui--in "the before times"

Wednesday, August 05, 2020

In "the before times" the world before Covid-19~~ you could get on a plane and travel to Maui and everyday it wouldn't be too hard to place your feet on the floor and say:"It is going to be a great day". And, why wouldn't it be a great day....your in Maui on vacation.

Here is my one and only one experience with Maui.....save up forever, get to Maui and it rains the whole time! Cold, wet and dark skies....on the day your plane leaves for home the sun comes out.

BJ Fogg in his book on tiny habits talks about the Maui Habit...on the minute your feet hit the floor in the morning say~~It is going to be a great day. And, if it is raining or your feeling like your having a hard morning say~~It is going to be a great day--somehow. To put that positive start to your day....

    Thanks for sharing! That is really a great way to start the day. Positive intentions are contagious, too!

    gotta say..my one and only trip to hawaii was when i was 19. my dad and i went to see my sister, who's then husband was stationed on oahu. we had 10 days. 3 of those days were on maui. from day 1 to day 5 it rained. every. single. day.
    Determined to make the most of what was probably (and was) our only time there, we still went to the beach (Bellows AFB...which was EMPTY. noone there. only when i got stung by a man o war did we realize WHY, despite the showers and not too nice weather, there was NOONE there...the man o wars were out in full force).
    but...though it was raining on oahu when we left for maui, we had a touchdown on Molokai..and there was sun...and when we got to maui...glory be..it was sunny and gorgeous the entire 3 days!! best part of the trip!!! we arrived back on oahu in another downpour..and it was pouring the next day when our plane left oahu on the first leg of our 4 layover long long trip back home.
    but..as you said...make it a great day anyhow!! other than the weather it was a wonderful trip!!
