Be Open to Opportunities in October
Sep 30, 2016 09:48AM
Our October issue focuses on change-makers—people that have passion for various causes and help organize their communities to act upon solutions to a variety of issues. Passion is a compelling emotion that can lead to action. We each possess passion; the question is does it drive us to do something?
As you will discover when reading this month’s edition, some of those passions are driving changes in our communities. It doesn’t take earth-shattering action to make things better—every act of kindness or piece of litter picked up helps. And there’s always a beach cleanup or a feed-the-homeless event in which to get involved. Donating time, food or home goods are great ways to pitch in and help the community. A good indicator that something needs to be done is the number of complaints on social media regarding the issue. Instead of just reading the posts, pose possible solutions and get involved in making them happen.
Opportunities abound for participation. Look at your own part of the island and see who’s organizing an activity to change some wrong that is happening. Better yet, examine the problem and gather a group of friends and neighbors to talk about what can be done.
This month’s edition highlights local practitioners and businesses that are helping people all over Oahu improve their health and well-being as well as that of our planet. As you read these articles and look at each of our sponsoring advertisers, please reach out to them to thank them for supporting our efforts to help all of us live a healthier, greener and more sustainable life. We are deeply grateful for each of them and for you.
Be Open to Opportunities in October!
