Costa Rica has been filled with so many adventures and I have learned so much. Everything from how to use a machete to how banana trees grow.
I love seeing and experiencing how the locals live. It gives me such a greater perspective of the world, allows me to learn new skills and to be grateful for the little things in life we so easily take for granted.
I hope one day you have the opportunity to visit and explore this beautiful country and absorb everything it has to offer.
Hola from Costa Rica! I am absolutely in love with this country. I’m so grateful my retreat co-host, Sarah, lives in this beautiful place and I have the opportunity to stay on her farm before heading further south to host the Soul Adventure Retreat.
One of the first adventures I had on the farm was orange picking with her adorable sons. They taught me all about oranges and how to make the perfect cup of freshly squeezed OJ.
It’s amazing how something that seems so simple can turn into a really fun adventure and an opportunity to learn new things.
It’s so easy to let certain situations or expectations get us down – but the true test is all in how we choose to deal with it.
Having a negative mindset tends to be a natural state for many, but the truth is, it takes more energy to be negative. It might take awhile to train your mind to be more positive but once you start living life with this brighter attitude life feels a lot better.
I’ve made a point of leading with a positive mindset and it makes such a big difference. It doesn’t mean I never get frustrated, upset or annoyed – it’s important to embrace all emotions. It’s just equally as important to ask yourself how you want to handle these emotions and how you want to show up in life!
It makes a big difference when you ask yourself who you want to be – and an even bigger difference when you ask yourself who you want to be in those lower feeling moments. When I do catch myself in a more negative mindset there are a few things I do to help me shift out of it. I’m excited to share what those are with you, so you can start feeling happier, lighter and enjoy life in an even bigger way!
