Before I came here someone told me that life in Santa Teresa is easy…
In English PURA VIDA simply means ”Pure Life” or ”Simple life” but it has a far more profound meaning to the people of Costa Rica.
PURA VIDA means that no matter what your current situation is, life for someone else can always be less fortunate than your own. So you need to consider that maybe…just maybe, your situation isn’t all that bad and that no matter how little or how much you have in life, we are all here together and life is short…so start living it ”pura vida style”.
PURA VIDA is more than just a saying—it is a way of life!
I am not sure life is easier here than anywhere else. And we don’t always go for easy, do we? I know I don’t.
I have talked to people who live here, who come from all over the world and we’ve had conversations about life, our lifes. We all have our stories but we also find we share some of them, we get each other, we understand and it gives us perspective. From the outside it might seem like the grass is greener on the other side. But no one’s grass is pure green….
A Yoga teacher here asked us ”How many of you are living up to your fully potential?”. Only a couple raised their hands.
Only you can create the life you want to live…
”Live the life you love, love the life you live”
