So its been some time since I posted anything with written content. I’ve definitely
had a lot of time to think and rethink and think again about this year, the past year
and everything I’d like to accomplish and do. What I need to work on, what needs to
be completed, what needs to be started..You know…that long, constant thought
As I am typing this I sit in a condo in Jaco, Costa Rica. The days are hot, the
animals alive, beaches are welcoming and people move about. The nights are cool
and an amazing way to wind down the day. The roosters go off around 5am, the
dogs dont quite stop their bickering and the laughter children bring a burst of
joy into your heart.
The living is different here, surrounded by jungle, rough roads, chickens and
dogs and cats run freely. Lizards lurke about, parrots are heard constantly, shells
move along the beaches…crabs scurry into their holes. I feel privelaged to have
had this experience and its thanks to to my grandfather.
We may not always get a chance to get away from what can be chaos at times
but we can create a place of peace. A place where no one else can enter unless
invited. A place where one can collect their thoughts, organize their life and put
things in perspective. It is important to create that place for yourself. And when
the opportunity arises to actually get away, GO! See the world, experience life
in the footsteps of others. Taking in anothers culture is refreshing, eye opening
and so good for the mind, soul and body. Its refreshing and lets you see just how
easy or how good things really are where you’re from. Or just how bad you need
to get away from where you’re at. (lol)
Stress doesnt solve anything or get you anywhere. Some sense of direction or
planning is useful and having a great support system is healthy. Create that space
of peace and positivity and only allow those to enter your life who are worth it.
Breath deep, live free, be happy, smile often, love hard and see your visions to
Look out for photos from the trip. Cheers.
