Trying to imagine a life without Costa Rica is impossible. It’s like thinking about how big space is; the brain just doesn’t want to cooperate.
Normally, when travels (or what ever episode I’m currently in) are running out, I’m freaking out for a while but then realize that it’s time to move on. I want to keep moving, see new things and find new experiences. I am still that person, however, this time is different.
I’m not ready to leave. Nowhere has been more home and nowhere has been more right (now). Even though I have been here for 4 months, Costa Rica still has more to give.
Unfortunately, some good-byes are inevitable. Changes still have to be made. I have to say good-bye to beautiful places and close friends, as we are all moving to different directions to continue our journeys.
We are trying to make plans while we are trying to stop time. We want to hold on for a little longer.
I will stay in Costa Rica, but I will still have to say good-bye to friends who leave or live on the other side of the country. One might think that I should be used to it by now but seems like it gets harder each time. Maybe I love a little more for every new travel and meeting. And why shouldn’t I? Love with your heart wide open. Experience with all your feelings. Even though it might hurt, at least you have fully experienced and learnt life.
