Write down all the great things about everyone you know. Make a huge list of all the wonderful things about you. Compliment people wherever you go. Praise every single thing you see. Be a ray of sunshine to everyone you meet, and make their day better for having seen you. Say "Thank you" at every turn. Walk, talk, think, and breathe appreciation and gratitude.
When you do this, your outer life will change to reflect your inner state of being.

Paya Bay go on a flowering spree for about six weeks, putting out multiple plumes of fragrant flowers. The sweet fragrance from the flowers drifts about the grounds on the sea breeze, giving walkers (and the bees) a heightened sensory experience.

White-crowned pigeons (Columba leucocephala) are notoriously skittish birds and usually take flight as soon as a person appears nearby. This one, however, is not shy at all and seems to love to hang in a sea grape tree near my apartment's balcony. Whenever I appear, he (or she) always eyes me intently for about ten seconds and then resumes his (her) grooming, stopping every so often to stare intently some more and assess the situation. Eventually he (she) completely relaxes and focuses nearly completely on the preening, which is an activity performed with closed eyes. The trust is flattering and makes me feel all "Tarzan." I've named him (her) Peace.
Paya's Earth Energy Center were completed. Earth energy centers are places where there is a greater abundance of life force energy.

Our natural state of being is joy, and it takes so much energy to think negative thoughts, to speak negative words, and to feel miserable. The easy path is good thoughts, good words, and good deeds.
Take the easy path.

Paya Bay Resort is starting a trial of our new Somethings Sometimes service. Basically we will provide guests who want to participate with a mobile phone. If that person happens to be in a remote area of our sprawling 22-acre property and finds that he or she needs something (water, cocktails, cervezas, food, insect repellent, etc.) they can just call in the request to the front desk and whatever they need (within reason) will be taken to them. A small service fee ($2) will be charged, which goes directly to the staff member making the run. I'm hoping this innovative use of technology will be a win-win for everyone involved.

To dream anything that you want to dream. That is the beauty of the human mind. To do anything you want to do. That is the strength of the human will. To trust yourself to test your limits. That is the courage to succeed.

They've never heard of Roatan, and they're blown away by what they find: a mountainous, tropical island with an 'old Caribbean' feel. It's a Jimmy Buffett place, even though he's never been here.
