"Better late than never."
where in the world is she now
San Jose, Costa Rica.
Last week in the Casita.
That's right I am moving again people, but just around the corner, literally. While I will so miss my Casita, I am excited by the possibilities that my new home will bring.
better late than never
So I am going to say the obvious it is Tuesday, but today has been the Monday-est Tuesday of the year so far, so I see no problem here. Also it occurred to me as I began to punish myself for not getting the blog post out on time yesterday, that I was being SO silly and that if everyone were to give up when things did not go exactly as planned how uneventful, unprogressive, un-everything life would be. So that is why I said "to hell with it" and am posting this Monday update on a Tuesday.
When people are asked to describe me one of the words I hear most is "positive." Like, "That Mary, she is so happy and always has a positive outlook." I love that people think of this when they think of me and ya know what, most of the time I agree. But, in those times when I am feeling the very opposite of these words, it can be really scary. In this past week I experienced stress at work and in my personal life and well, it made me unhappy. These feelings took me and my close people by complete surprise. I became more stressed out by the fact that I was feeling stressed out- creating a very dangerous wheel. In the end, thanks to a small push, I took much needed R & R. I treated myself to some serous me time and it helped.
I find it more and more important to share feelings like this with those around me. It is important because it is so easy to get swept up in the romantics of living abroad and traveling to new places, but humans are humans regardless of where they are.
mantra of the week
I am breathing deeply.
February is a spit-fire month. It truly is over before it begins, so I am reminding myself to breathe in good moments and exhale any toxic thoughts. This month is just too quick to take any bullshit.
Join in me in big breath to wrap up this update and tackle mañana like the powerful people we are!
That's all for now buds. Stay tuned for more in the mind of Mary.
Peace be the Journey,
