My memories of you may fade, but my feelings for you remain forever.

My memories of you may fade,but my feelings for you remain forever.- Positive Masters, Jon Riki Karamatsu, 9/3/2020 -I came up with this heartwarming quote while I was writing my first full-length screenplay in the lifestyle + competition genre that took me about 30 days to complete. I really like the process of writing a screenplay, which moves much faster and is much shorter than novels. Screenplays are a blueprint for the actors and directors to execute on to make a movie. For my unpublished novels, it took me between 4 years to 8 years to complete, so I really feel happy to be able to finish writing a screenplay within a month. I can pump out a lot more...

Together with love, compassion, and empathy.

With the police using excessive and discriminatory force that killed George Floyd on May 25, 2020 and the following unrest that has been felt around the world, I found myself falling deeper into sadness. My past experiences with racism on the U.S. mainland flashed back in my mind and so did my experiences with law enforcement abusing their power even here in beautiful Hawaii. Stuff I would rather keep tucked away in the back of my memory.When a person wears a badge representing the law and carries a gun to enforce it, that's extreme power, power that can go terribly wrong when the mindset of that person is filled with anger, fear, bias, or racism, and lacking empathy and a...

Stones with heartwarming messages placed under our mailboxes during these challenging times with COVID-19.

After a 5-mile run in my cozy neighborhood in Hawaii, I saw these stones with heartwarming messages placed under our mailboxes. 😃   The white stone says, "Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times if only one remembers to turn on the light." "Live Love Laugh" is written on the two pink stones. The purple stone says, "love."   Thank you to whoever or those who wrote this. It really touched me. I'm sure my neighbors loved them too. ❤   With Warmest Aloha,   Jon +positive masters+     Enjoy the +positive masters+ universe here at www.positivemasters.com for mindset practices, motivational writing, business development strategies, and inspirational apparel to boost your happiness and counter any anxiety,...
