Grateful for Life, Everything else is Extra! 

Can we for 1 second just think about how amazing it is to be alive? The odds of us being born on paradise (earth) were practically zero. Congratulations you won the astronomical jackpot and arrived on earth! I’m grateful for the internet, which allows me to share my message of peace, love, and positivity.

Gratitude is the cure for the common complainer. When ever we complain about work, family, and friends we are forgetting how lucky we are to have them in the first place. When we complain about life, we forget how lucky we are to be alive! Gratitude is also the antidote for anger, just think about it… How can you be angry at someone while being grateful? Once you express gratitude towards your spouse or family member you lose all anger towards them. Gratitude helps us remember why we chose to have someone in our life. 

I’m grateful for all the mistakes I have made in my life because they taught me a lesson, what not to do. I’m grateful for ex-fiance for leaving me because without that lesson I wouldn’t have grown into the man I am today. I’m grateful I took the risk to leave my career on the mainland and plunge into the unknown. Each mistake and decision have led to this moment, this blog, and the message I’m passionate about.

I’m grateful for you. Our most precious commodities are time and attention. You have chosen to use some of your time and attention to read my story. It’s not my story though, it’s our story. We are all on this earth together and I’m grateful for all of those who have helped me on my journey. I’m grateful for life, everything else is extra!

With Gratitude,

Jonathan Hoffman

My intention is to inspire a simple, healthy, and authentic way of life. I'm 28 years old and live on Maui. I decided last year to leave the corporate world to live a simpler life. Hawaii was the perfect place to do so. I'm spiritual but not religious. I enjoy meditation, long walks, working out, and enjoying home cooked vegan food. My life is my message.
