How following the unknown lead me to endless coconuts and my dream of living at the sea
About a year ago, I decided to leave all the gushy comforts that I knew to venture the great unknown. Indeed it was unknown. New languages, 10 new countries, countless new faces, and oh yeah no shortages or new challenges!! But every single part of it lead me to where I am today. I am sitting here mid afternoon in the place I (basically on a whim) decided to make my new home, A small charming beach town in El Salvador. Honestly, before a year ago, I didn't even know this quaint little country existed. And when I say quaint, I mean it's the second smallest country in Central America.
On a 2 week stop over here back in February, it didn't take long before it captured my heart and my residence.
So here I am, 6 months later settling into my new home and embracing to the best of my ability, all the ways being here is supporting different goals which were once just a dream.
I found a humble home a few minutes walk from the beach and surf break. Learning to surf has become my new past time. It provides such a unique connection to nature, other surfers from around the world, as well as both physical and mental demands.
In a nut shell, life has become simple. It came from giving up parts of myself I thought WERE ME and embracing parts of myself that I never gave mind to. Everyday I realize is about grasping more edges of the unknown. Loving what is. Exactly as it is. Being grateful for the each moment. Reminding myself of what I've come from. What I've been through. And no matter what, as long as I'm breathing, all the potential in the universe is at my fingertips. To this day I raise a coconut and salute the beauty of this incredible journey called life.
