Not Easily Broken

I just recently blogged about "Whatever may come Love it!" and less then 24 hrs later more trials arise. 2008 has really tested and refined us as a family. Even up to 23 hrs before January 1,2009. Death has taken it's toll on us and yet though we fight to remain positive.
It seems as if that knock is at our doorstep once again. And though I know that death will happen to all of us and some sooner then others. After the year we've had it just seems to be even more difficult. To keep from feeling everyone we love will return home to Heavenly Father tomorrow. And that's just not what I was expecting to feel right now. Not on the eve of New Year's Eve. And though in my heart of hearts I know this is for my experience. That this road once travelled so recently. Now revisiting is to make us stronger as a family. Keeping optimistic and remembering "Whatever may come Love it!" honestly isn't really what I'm able to hold onto right now. Isn't what I'm feeling strong enough to live up to but at the same time. I refuse to be weak and become easily broken. HAAAAPPPPPY NEW YEAR...

Whatever May Come Love it!

A title from one of our Church leaders out to motivate us to endure all but endure it well. In other words with an optimistic attitude. It's been easier for me in the past to only exercise that positive attitude with my friends. So quick to mend their pains, their sorrows and disappointments. However when it'd come to my own immediate family, siblings and their significant others I struggled. Not because I didn't love them but because I didn't know how to approach them w/out offending them or coming off overbearing.
But with the new year approaching so quickly I'm making changes, keeping my trust in the Lord and aiming with a more positive vision. I love my family very much and am grateful for each member. It's been rough year and it may not get any easier then this past one. But I have no doubt the future will be worth experiencing and that God's blessings will hold us up through any storm. Whatever make come I will strive to Love it! HAPPY EARLY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

Growing Up

It's been an amazing weekend and I'm growning up! Problems seem to increase when I'm after something good. But I've learned that I need to just breathe and know all will work itself out. I was able to participate in a fireside last night through our choir Divine Heritage. It was cold, I was in a sugar high from all day candy rush and the day was long. And though I didn't take the opportunity to invite my family to this particular fireside. Oddly enough they were all that was on my mind. As we sang of Christ, Testified and learned and I found myself in gratitude that I could say I have a family. One that loves me, supports me and people I can turn too even when I'm at my worse. I have a family.. So during this Christmas season I would hope we could take a second and appreciate those around us. Totally speaking out loud as a reminder to myself to appreciate my own family.. Becuz though at times we feel we can't live with them in all reality we really couldn't live without them. I wish you all a MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Thanks for the comment Sister Ane! It's not easy fighting but the experience is worth it. Well still waiting on getting things rolling with my part in the Hype Movement. It's amazing finding out so many of my friends are already in it.. (WONDERING why I was never informed prior)lol But if anything it's cool. I've learned that everything falls into place in the Lord's time. And though I'm extra anxious about the future. I've had to realize this past weekend to pace myself and really breathe. That "Let me relax kind of breathing".lol You all ever have them kind of days? If not your Anywayz I'm floored that this year is coming to an end in less then a couple of weeks away. And I just want to express my deepest gratitude and love for all of you that are reading. Means alot that my jibberish is being read and that hopefully it makes an impact on your lives.. Til we meet again or til my next update which hopefully will be worth bloggin about take it easy. Alofa lava O

I am truely lost for words at where I am in life and what I've been blessed to discover.. Especially because there's so much I want to share and even more that I'm feeling. And with all that is transpiring I know God is in it and I am blessed.
I'm Overland Aimiti Fa'amaligi Mapuolesega Olotoa Su'apaia Afo and I love writing or in this case blogging.
I decided I'd start this up due to my good friend Fernando Dick Stone Leuluai . A rising star within our Polynesian Community and soon to be known worldwide. As he pursues his passion in the Film Industry out to shed light to the world that Polynesians are good people. I brag about his influence and example all of the time and will continue to do so because I believe in him and his mission. And short story long or I was blessed to meet Nanz when my brother passed away earlier this year.He motivated me to continue on when all else was falling apart with losing Tuau.
And 9 months and a day ago today when Tuau returned to our Heavenly Father.
I vowed I'd start a center for youth. In order to help keep them from making unwise choices.
And even more to help them with unwise choices already made. Bringing hope to a generation who needs our guidance, our experiences and our stories.
Well that center was never created and I've been really hard on myself about it.
Until once again Nanz came through for me without even realizing.. Through his myspace page I was able to come across a new friend.
Danny Boi from the Bay Area another positive Polynesian Man on the rise. Desiring and working to help our people but especially our youth out. We started chatting about his dream of reaching out to youth in California and creating this AMAZING UPRISE. And the more we shared back and forth. The more pumped I became to getting things moving.
But I didn't know Danny and come to find out him living in Cali miles away created a slight problem. It would be difficult to plan things and go out to speak to the youth. When we live in two different places. So that wasn't
But remember I said God is in it and has blessed me. Well Danny kept me from getting discouraged again. And referred Anapesi from SLC,UTAH who I already knew from church. Whom established exactly what I was looking for and have needed for quite sometime now. Through a group Anapesi started by the name of HYPE MOVEMENT..
Helping Youth Pursue Emancipation to build build build youth up. This practically fell into my lap and just by Nanz living his dream. I am able to find two individuals in Danny Boi and Anapesi to create mine.. And I am even more indebted to Nanz for this gift. And as he's advise pay it forward is what I'm gonna do. Through the remainder of 2008 into 2009 I can't wait to see where I end up with the help of Anapesi and the rest of the gang.. Bloggin what HYPE MOVEMENT is all about. Overjoyed at making a big difference through lives that will expand my growth in service. It's all about Hype and our local Church Choir Divine Heritage moving forward for me. As they leave their mark or if you will their footprints in my life. I'll be sure to step forward with the Lord and never lose sight of Tuau's Memory in all of what's ahead in the coming months... I'M SO HAPPY and it's crazy it really is!! My dream is becoming my reality!
