There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. Surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right. Pray for the ones who don't. Life is to short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living. – Author Unknown
Living in Central America for 200 days now has been an unreal experience at times. From the moment I first stepped off the plane in Belize and walked across the concrete tarmac, I didn’t know where I might be six months from that moment let alone the next two days. But, I am glad that I had the courage to leave all that was familiar for whatever it is that may be planned for my life. The excitement of not even knowing where I may be 200 days from now is part of the adventurous hope of what may lay ahead. As I sit here and reminisce in all those that I have encountered that have later become friends, and basking in the incredible beauty of the world that we live in is a dream that I am fortunate enough to continue to live out daily. Stepping foot in almost every country in Central America has been part of life’s miracles of where life can lead you if you are only willing to pursue the possibility of a greater achievement that lays beyond what you thought could be possible. When I think about leaving behind a materialistic society for one that has a greater purpose for community and holds the causation for the absolute joy of truly being alive, it also makes me sad for those that continue to replace their sense of happiness and fulfillment with fleeting collections of attaining to the routine. Find that spark that we have all had in our youth, to achieve more than what we thought we could that has sadly been lost, and fill the void for what true living can be and begin that journey today.
