(Author of Random Acts of Kindness) Brenda Knight believes Hawaiians are on to something in terms of bringing more goodness into the world.
In the beautiful paradise known as the Hawaiian Islands, there is a tradition of “Living Aloha.” In Hawaiian culture, aloha includes the concepts akahai, lokahi, olu’ olu, ha’aha’a, and ahonui– in English, these words translate to kindness, bringing unity, politeness, humility, and enduring. If you live your life with simple acts of goodness every day and follow the tradition of native Hawaiian islanders, you will surely become good in the world.
