Pura Vida! We've recently returned from a beautiful family vacation at the Arenal Volcano! It was so amazing, and we chatted about how we feel everyone should be able to have the freedom to live in the way they want to - whether it's having a home in the tropics, skiing in the mountains, or sunbathing in the desert :-)
When Ka's doing something like running one of his free webinars - or posts a YouTube video, we always love seeing so many amazingly positive comments from people who have taken information or ideas away and feel like they want to share their own personal stories or give thanks, which is so awesome, but we also very occasionally get people who simply feel the need to be nasty, and post negative comments - it's not cool for sure, but also I don't think those people realize how what they're doing isn't helpful for them either, or anyone for that matter... Especially if we follow the policy to treat others how we would want to be treated, or taking that a step further - how we treat ourselves...
Have you ever said, "I'm going to start this on Monday" or "I can't do that right now, but when the circumstances are right - I'll do it" - you must have said something along these lines at least once, right? Well, I want to make a crazy suggestion to you - rather than wait another day, why not make plans to live the life you've always wanted, today? You don't have to make any drastic changes immediately, just start by engaging your imagination and thinking about all the cool things you could do, be or have in your life.
I remember when Ka and I were working multiple jobs between us and claiming benefits from the government, but still barely able to make ends meet, or even buy enough food for our kids which is a pretty scary place to be. Juggling work and family life back then just equalled stress... For many people, the dream of quitting the weekday grind in the name of freedom sounds like a great way to escape the pressures of everyday life. For others though, like it was for us, it's a real goal.
Hey guys, I thought I share something with you today about a topic which is very close to my heart, and to Ka's - it's happiness. I know what it's like to want more of it in my life, and I know what it's like to feel like I could never be happier.
Hello dear tribe, and welcome to our first blog post since the birth of our baby daughter Sofia. It's been a hectic week as we welcome our 6th child into the world here in Germany, and we're slowly adapting to life as a family with our newborn :-)
Costa Rica is where we spend most of our time, and we love it so much here that we're building an Eco-home which we can't wait to see come together! Why do we choose to spend our time here more than anywhere else? Because it's a warm and inviting country to visit with an extraordinarily laid back atmosphere - you may have noticed we're pretty laid back people. ;-)
While we're currently in Germany with our 5 kids, and awaiting the arrival of our new baby daughter, the beaches of Costa Rica are never far from our mind :-) Costa Rica is a favorite destination for people of all ages and walks of life. For the most part, they come to enjoy the wonderful sunshine and the cheerful beaches that line the Caribbean coastline and since this is quite an energetic place to visit, there's plenty of nighttime entertainment for the more adventurous people too, so we wanted to share some cool hotspots for you to visit when you come :-)
