Risk is more than is required. Learn more than is normal. Be strong. Show courage. Breathe. Excel. Love. Lead. Speak your truth. Live your values. Laugh. Cry. Innovate. Simplify. Adore mastery. Release mediocrity. Aim for genius. Stay humble. Be kinder than expected. Deliver more than is needed. Exude passion. Shatter your limits. Transcend your fears. Inspire others by your bigness. Dream big but start small. Act now. Don't stop. Change the world. – Robin Sharma
For the first time in my travels I am unsure about leaving Costa Rica, because I feel indifferent about my homecoming back to San Juan, a place I’ve called home for almost 10 months. The dissention that has grown between Marc and I and the secretive talks and meetings that Dan and Marc have orchestrated has began to ruin the incredible chemistry of a town that for all of us that have spent any time here is bringing winds of change that I fear will be negative. Arriving at the bus terminal in San Jose for my 12:30pm bus ride back to SJDS I arrive at the hostel at 7:30pm. Even as I walk through the entrance there is a vibe that is unfamiliar to me that I cannot place, but thankfully Emily is working and is excited as ever to see me again and gives me an enormous hug. While I try and shrug off these uneasy feelings by going out to revisit friends that I haven’t seen in over a month, I can’t help but wonder what the next few days will bring.
