The Life

Sunset, Playa Carmen, Costa Rica October 2019

I ran in the rat race for a short period of time when I was younger. I dropped out when I realized it wasn’t making me happy, just exhausted. My needs are simple and I prefer to focus my extra time and money making memories with friends and family.

So, for me, this Kenny Chesney song isn’t a revelation but rather an affirmation. I think it’s especially fitting since I’m staying in the Playa Carmen section of Santa Teresa (I have no way of knowing if this is the Playa Carmen he’s referring to but I like to think so).

“In the best broken Spanish I knew, I said I make a good living

back home where I’m from, He smiled and said “amigo me too”

He said I fish and I play my guitar, I laugh at the bar with my friends

I go home to my wife, I pray every night, I can do it all over again”

It’s well worth a listen, amigos!
