I think one of the biggest keys to happiness in life is learning how to be grateful and content with what you have and I know that is not always easy. In fact as an American expat living in Costa Rica, I feel many of us sometimes forget just how much fortunate it we really are to live here.........
While some people simply like to complain of what they don’t have, or perhaps what isn’t working for them, I want to take a second and do the opposite. Last week I had some family visit us, where my wife and I did the usual gracious host and tour of Costa Rica. After they left I had a chance to reflect on not just what a wonderful vacation we just had, but just indeed how lucky we are to live in such a stunning and beautiful country. We traveled throughout the country, from the amazing thermal hot springs in Arenal to the pristine beaches and lush rainforest in Manuel Antonio. We watched stunning sunsets, amazing surf competitions, hiked, ziplined, all while enjoying perfect weather. During their stay my family stayed a few nights in Jaco Beach and a few nights in the Los Suenos Resort and left saying this was the first vacation where they left truly feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Not only am appreciative of the time we spent together, but I’m grateful to be reminded of just what a wonderful lifestyle we have and how lucky I am to be living in Costa Rica.
