No matter what happens time continues to move forward, There are times in my life when I have just wanted it to stop so that I can take a break to “call cree”( Jamaican word for stop and take a break).
Life can become overwhelming like a runaway train that you wish you could get off, but for whatever reason, you choose not to disembark.
Some people spend their time counting days, hours, minutes waiting for the end of the day, end of the week or until its time to take their vacation. The counting continues until its time to retire. Then retirement comes along and they are not able to enjoy the fruits of their labor. Sounds sad? That’s so many peoples reality.
Choose not to feel trapped or stuck but rather enjoy your life and be happy!
Give it a try. Stop the train and get off. Live your Life to the fullest!
In September 2018 I went to Costa Rica for the first time. What a beautiful Country! From landing in this country I could see the beauty in the land and the people.
I made the trip with my sister (we adopted each other) and her husband who visited the country before and fell in love with it and encouraged me to come down and I am so glad I took them up on the invitation.
We are staying in a small town in the shadow of the Arenal Volcano called La Fortuna a quaint town with lots to do. We are here in the offseason or rainy season. As long as you are ok with it raining every day it’s great! Very few tourist around, No crowds, just you hiking on the trails just bring rain gear and wear waterproof shoes because of the rain and mud.
The temperature is perfect 75 degrees with a slight breeze. I seat in my Airbnb apartment with the front and back door open and the breeze and sounds are enchanting the birds, roosters, and raindrops coupled with the breeze make for a perfect lazy Sunday morning. Looking out the back door at this majestic Volcano wishing I never had to leave.
I will be back Costa Rico, I’ll be back La Fortuna. Thank You for one of the best vacations.
