How can I ever go back to normal life again?
I’m not sure I can ....
I’ve found my happy place ... exploring - traveling - experiencing ... all of life in a different capacity.
It’s all perfect and it’s all been rad - my first day in El Tunco I was overwhelmed by the heat - but fast forward a day I am adjusting ... and then there is today... my first ever surf lesson (well 1/2 lesson).
And while the waves kicked my ass it only took a taste for me to realize I’m where I need to be - doing something I NEED to do for me ... it’s my BIGGEST fear & equally as much a desire .... for years I have dreamt of being able to give surf a try, but being I was 1. Terrified of ocean and 2. Didn’t even know how to swim- it wasn’t an option. I can’t die with fears - it’s always been my motto ... one at a time ... the water - especially the ocean has always been the biggest of all - and I’ve been slowly starting to tackle this fear one task at a time ... starting with first scuba diving to explore the great unknown. Second, and only recently, learning how to swim spending 9 months of swim lessons one time /week ... and lastly, choosing Central America as my first extended travel destination specifically because I knew I would find endless opportunities to learn to surf along the way- should I find the courage to do so.
And so it begins - no more excuses. Maybe I try for a week and decide it just isn’t for me - but at least I know ... because the flip side - is maybe I try for a week and fall in love, discovering another new passion, new hobby and new love.
My thought is if I don’t try I will continue to not know and will always wonder what could be. And everything about it once I can get over my fear of the power of the ocean sounds beautiful.
Guess we shall see how it goes 😳 TBD ... updates to come 👌🏼😉
