Slow Down

Slow Down | Life Awesome Blog

The pace here in Puerto Escondido is much different than that of Toronto. Sure, we are not working at our regular jobs but it is more than that. Everything moves slower here and I am really enjoying it but it has taken some time to get to that point. This morning I did an Instagram […]

Have you ever not succeeded at something in life because you let fear get in the way? I am going to guess the answer is yes. And that it is yes for nearly every human. Fear is a funny thing. It’s like our constant companion whispering in our ear. I am not talented enough… I […]

Why Puerto Escondido
