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 :-)
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.
At some point in your life you've probably heard it said that ideas are a dime a dozen. As you know ideas are simply thoughts, even if written down, until you decide to actually give them your attention and put them into action. As follows then, knowing precisely how to take the initial idea to a full-fledged reality is the key to being successful.
This is your Ka speaking and I'm coming to you 'live' from a beautiful forest in Germany. This is one of the only things aside from family that I miss while travelling in the tropics. We just arrived yesterday so you will have to forgive me if I look a little tired. I'm jet lagged for sure but I feel really energetic because of the diet I'm on now. I'm eating very little and drinking lots of juices. I just arrived here and am really, really happy that I was able to put my arms around my family!! Especially my three little kids and Katie – all of them really!! We are reunited and I'm really happy about this!!
