Living in Costa Rica is amazing. We love it here. We live here because we want to live here. You too, can live where you want to live. If you could live anywhere, would you live where you do?
WHY DO YOU LIVE WHERE YOU LIVE?
I want to ask you a question: Why do you live where you live?
In 2007, we listened to an audio program called “How to Be a No Limit Person” by –Dr. Wayne W. Dyer– and it really affected us! We were driving through Mexico on our way to Costa Rica for the first time and he asks:
Why do you live where you live?
If you could take yourself of the earth and look back at the whole earth and choose anywhere to live, where would you live?
Then he asks “why don’t you live there?”
So, I just want to bring that up and ask you:
Are you living where you really want to live?Not because your ancestors moved there or because of a job, but because you really want to LIVE THERE.
Right now we are living in southern Costa Rica, walking through the rainforest where there are animals and plants, fresh food and mosquitos, and big, nasty bugs. And there are things like that. For example, we don’t have a water heater so we take cold showers and the power goes out sometimes, but we’re here because we want to be here! We love it! We love the beach, we love the lifestyle! Costa Rica doesn’t even have an army or military and it is such a peaceful place, with a beautiful culture that loves family. It is a good life, but we choose this life.
So I just want to challenge you to stop and take a look at your life and see if you are choosing it. But don’t blame anything or make any excuses. Just look at your life and if you chose to live there and do what you’re doing, then that’s great, as long as it is your own choice, it’s deliberate,and you are living life on your terms. If not, then have the COURAGE to CHANGE!
WHY ARE WE LIVING SPECIFICALLY IN COSTA RICA?
First of all, it is because this is one of the unique places in central America where the mountains come right out of the ocean, and so we get the mountains as well as the coast and we love both. We can go enjoy the beach, and we can be in the mountains hiking, running, mountain biking, as well as have cooler temperatures, huge waterfalls and beautiful rivers where we can swim with our kids. Second, we have the opportunity to grow different food. We live on an organic farm from which we get fresh meat, amazing salads, and incredible fruits and vegetables. It’s also an amazing community with cool people from all over the world!
So I invite you today to choose your place. Get out and explore, learn, and create the life you want to live!REACH UPWARD!
