Aloha. My name is Barbara Uechi and I have lived in Kona, Hawaii for most of my life. I was once a real estate broker and an active community supporter (non-profit boards, fundraising and sign-waving), then became a yoga teacher, massage therapist and studio owner. Three years ago I closed Kona Yoga for the next, best thing to happen.
Not long ago, I found a box of old journals and read something that felt like a whack on the head from a magic wand. I had written:
There are some things (many things) in the present, that I used to “daydream” about years ago. That is probably why I feel that my current thoughts will also materialize. I am going to have...the lifestyle, health, and happiness that I foresee. - September 14, 1985.
Now here it is, the beginning of 2016 and it's finally dawned on me that I am living that life. I didn't specifically dream of making millions of dollars, being a famous talk show host, or finding the solution to end world hunger (and I didn't). I seem to have just wished for the life that fortune and fame are assumed to provide, and grew into it. I have the life, health and happiness that I dreamed of nearly thirty years ago. My future is now...what's next?
Lessons in Balance is where I:
- take a look at how my past decisions have influenced my present life,
- make some decisions about the quality of my future and
- connect with others who are (or interested in) living the life they've always wanted.
