Lazy Sunday # 253: Israel Kamakawiwo'ole

The holiday season always travels hand in glove with chaos and a hectic pace as we try to cram as much family, as many friends and countless traditional and celebratory events into each day.

But amid the festivities, we also find moments that make us reflect, not only on Christmases and New Years past but where we’ve travelled since the last one.

It’s in those quiet moments when we connect with that tiny voice inside that has always charted the course we really want to follow, the one that leads to the fulfillment of our deepest hopes and sweetest dreams.

If you haven’t connected with that voice in a while or have allowed it to be silenced by cynicism, defeat or frustration, let me put you in touch with one that will move those clouds aside. It’s a voice as pretty as any you’ve ever heard.

Yes, there are thousands of truly beautiful voices in the world.

And this may be one you’ve never heard. If not, you’re welcome.

And if you are already familiar with Israel “IZ” Kamakawiwo'ole you’ll no doubt agree that no one banishes troubles and negativity as thoroughly.

May your own voice guide you to happiness in the coming year. But in times of trouble, let the inimitable “IZ” help you along.

Enjoy Your Sunday.
