Major Keys to Happy Living

While scrolling through Facebook one day, I came across a video posted by a page called "Think, inspire, motivate, create" with content made by DailyHealthGen. The tips were so fitting to what Aloha Dreamboard is all about! I've attached some of the images here, but here's a link to the full video:

I love getting in that daily run and making people smile, but I can definitely work on getting a full eight hours of sleep and ignoring gossip. What about you?

You Are You

It’s a given that we’re all at different stages of our lives, but this quote is so applicable in every situation. Trust your worth, and the universe will deliver. If you’re broken, let this mend you. If you’re whole, believe in this with all of your heart, so you’ll rarely ever have to crack.


I recently decided to really listen to myself, and all I’ve been wanting is for me to be content. When I am happy with where I am, I can focus my energy on being that ray of sunshine I always longed to be and inspire others.

This mentality has opened so many doors for me in the past few weeks! I was offered a supervisor position at my on-campus job, landed a new internship, and accomplished a fun collaboration for some new, personal blog content. Big things are happening and the ideas keep on brewing. I am hoping to get accepted into a Graphic Design minor program and start a club on campus by next semester. I’m not here to brag, but this goes to show that we each have so much to offer; all we have to do is turn that switch on in our mind.

For The Sisters

Our lives become so hectic that we sometimes forget about those who help us stand strong. Let’s slow things down a bit this week and make time to show some appreciation.

For me, my little sister keeps me laughing through quite a few tough times. Today happens to be her birthday, so this post is dedicated to her! Whether you’re blood related or simply can’t be separated, share these songs and lyrics with sisters that you definitely put before misters.

If you want to feel alive, then learn to love your ground...Sister don’t let go.
— "Sister" by Mumford & Sons
Picture you’re the queen of everything, far as the eye can see. Under your command, I will be your guardian when all is crumbling, steady your hand.
— "Never Say Never" by The Fray
I hope you never lose your sense of wonder. You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger...I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean. Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens.
— "I Hope You Dance" by Lee Ann Womack
