Praise, like gold and diamonds, owes its value to its scarcity.

We were there in 2008, and have very fond memories. Due to a new house project and some other travelling haven't gotten back. But we will!!! Your site is terrific, your improvements are amazing, and it made my heart good to read all those terrific reviews on TripAdvisor - many said just what I said back in 2008. We may not get there til 2012, so will probably celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary with you. Nothing compares to Payabay!!
Love to all of you, Claudia and Mike

Check out my friend Joel Escalona's new music video for his "Amor de Miel" (Honey Love) recording. Joel is from Venezuela, but he and his wife now reside in Roatan. This video was filmed here on the island.

To allow the Universe to move you in your life to happier and better things, you are going to need to look around you and appreciate the good things here and now. Seek the beautiful things and count the blessings of where you are. Dissatisfaction will not bring the happier and the better into your life. Dissatisfaction roots you to the spot where you currently are, but appreciation for what you have attracts the happier and better to you.
Remember that you are a magnet! Appreciation attracts appreciation!

Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.
- John Wooden, college basketball coach
This is an idea that has had a powerful impact on my life. Sometimes in Life we run into a wall and beat ourselves to a pulp trying to break through it. A better strategy is to simply walk around the obstacle and get on with your lives.

Most people don't realize how much passion they put into what they don't want. When you speak to a friend and you tell them all about an "awful" situation, you are putting passion into what you don't want. When you react to an event negatively, with the response that it is "terrible", you are putting passion into what you don't want.
You are a beautiful passionate being, so make sure you direct your passion wisely.

My schedule doesn't allow me to go on all the Pigeon Cay trips (I'm realizing, however, that my "hosting" is something guests miss out on when I don't go.) This was an extra special trip as my friend Michelle was visiting from Atlanta, and my friends John and Stacy were visiting from Los Angeles.
Remember, if you are criticizing, you are not being grateful. If you are blaming, you are not being grateful. If you are complaining, you are not being grateful. If you are feeling tension, you are not being grateful. If you are rushing, you are not being grateful. If you are in a bad mood, you are not being grateful.
Gratitude can transform your life. Are you allowing minor things to get in the way of your transformation and the life you deserve?

Because of this reawakening, yoga is sweeping across the globe at a dazzling speed, as millions are turning to yoga not only to exercise, but also as an alternative to the experience of a spiritual gathering they cannot find in a church, synagogue, mosque or Web site. Perhaps the reason for this lies in the chief difference between religion and Western-style yoga, and that is that Yoga is usually offered in a nondogmatic format, which makes it inclusive to many more people. Because of its message of healing, unity and a simpler life, yoga may be one of the great rays of hope for our future. Why? Because worldwide, yoga is being embraced primarily by college-educated, upper-middle-class thinkers and businesspeople in positions of power--the very strata of society that has the power to make the changes this world so desperately needs.

Yoga is offered as part of Paya Bay's Wellness Program.
