Ahonui- means:

“Definition: patience, patient, enduring, long suffering, to tolerate. Literal meaning: great breath.”
Hawaiian Dictionary, Mary K. Pukui, Samuel H. Elbert

Ahonui is a very special word. Being patient and tolerant is often a difficult thing to do. But isn’t it interesting how ahonui also means “long suffering “as well as the literal meaning of  “great breath”. Ahonui is a reminder that when we are faced with situations and people who have challenged our patience and tolerance, we must take a great breath and reflect on why we are feeling impatient or intolerant. A deep breath, the ha – our breath of life will remind us that we are all one, so we must be ahonui with others as well as ourselves.
