Quick Must Do Hikes on O’ahu, Hawaii

Quick Must Do Hikes on O’ahu, Hawaii

Being back on mainland and spending time with family at home in California has been very comforting. What also has been amazing is feeling the seasons change again from summer to fall, going from the summer heat to the cool crisp air of a southern California fall. Feeling the cold weather coming upon us, has me missing Hawaii summer living quite a bit lately. Living the endless summer life on O’ahu definitely has its numerous blessings. And one of those many blessings that I always enjoyed while living in Hawaii was having easy access to fun quick hikes that offer a rewarding stunning view of the most incredible scenery of Hawaii.

Going through my old photos inspired me to share some knowledge of fun hikes here that I always recommend to friends who are visiting O’ahu or fellow travel lovers who are looking for some Hawaiian inspiration to visit one day.

There are a ton of hikes to do on O’ahu, a lot of short hikes, challenging hikes, long and strenuous, illegal, and even dangerous ones. But these hikes are slightly more on the mellow side that I always recommend to check out if you are on a short visit, or just looking for a quick hike with a gorgeous view of O’ahu that is still worth the workout and is easy to get to.

  • People do not generally live in their actions, the present moment. They live in the past or in the future. Though they seem to be doing something now, here, they live somewhere else in their thoughts, in their imaginary problems or worries, usually in the memories of the past or in desires and speculations about the future. Therefore they do no live in, nor enjoy, what they do at the moment. So they are unhappy and discontented with the present moment, with the work at hand, and naturally they cannot give themselves fully to what they appear to be doing.-What the Buddha Taught 📿📖

In other words, think less, chill out more, and smile, because you’re actively in the present moment and it sure is beautiful 🌟💕🤙🏻 #WordsofWisdom

  • My new hobby lately has been taking some time out of my day to write in a journal. I always have a journal with me on my travels for when I write down my random, pondering life thoughts, or my stories. But, I decided to make it a therapeutic ritual during my quiet "me" time to write whatever I'm feeling or thinking in the moment, or just wanting to vent, or to just express what's going on in my day
.
I forgot how beneficial and cathartic it is to just write down your thoughts on the daily, even if just a page or two. Especially, when you have feelings you want to get off your chest or thoughts you're trying to make sense of. Your mini little therapist
.
When you release those feelings and thoughts on paper, I promise you will spend the rest of your day feeling a lot lighter and more liberated than you did before, because those thoughts or feelings no longer consume you as the superior force. You understand your thoughts and feelings more, and then you get to enjoy the rest of your care free day 🌟🌴🤙🏻 #HappySaturday
  • If you catch me smiling today, it's because I'm dreaming I'm here 💕😁🤙🏻 #AlohaFriday
