Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.– Norman Vincent Peale
Once Upon A Time
there was a Hawaiian goddess named Hina. Hina is a sexy and savvy woman, who captured the attention of both men and gods alike.
At the foot of Kauiki beach, she sat, creating the most beautiful cloth. Tired of this mundane work among mortals, she decided to retreat to the heavens.
On her rainbow, she attempted to go to the sun. However, as she climbed higher and higher, the vibrant rays left her weak and exhausted, until she finally fell back to Earth.
After she regained her strength, she decided that the moon might be a better fit. On her rainbow, she glided through the night sky. Mysterious dark forces elevated her higher and higher until she finally reached her new home, the moon.
We tend react to stressful situations in one of two ways — we get riled up and lash out…or we run away. Hina shows us that it’s okay to take a mini vacation from time to time.
When you start to feel overwhelmed, retreat to your happy place for a bit. Find a peaceful space to meditate, practice yoga, garden, create art, whatever lights you up! Not only will you feel rejuvenated, you’ll come out of your zen den with a fresh perspective on the problem.
