Dateline: Madera Beach, Nicaragua
I’m sitting in a little beach shack. Sipping a Diet Coke and reading a book.
It’s a surf beach. Hard to get to. “Best fish tacos in Nicaragua”. Bob Marley on the stereo.
However, the table next to has an older couple. Gray hair. Checking their email on the free wifi on the beach. Lots of young people surfing and swimming in the ocean. 3-4 foot waves.
Here we are. Old and young enjoying the good life. Low cost of living. Nothing to do. No pressure. Ease of living.
Isn’t that what we all strive for? Ease of living? No pressure?
A long time ago, I committed myself that I wouldn’t compromise my lifestyle anymore. I realized that I had been working hard to maintain a nice lifestyle but that lifestyle was a trap. The sacrifice to maintain that lifestyle was high. I could not escape it. I had to work a certain amount just support a mortgage. And so on and so on.
I determined that I should work toward true freedom. The freedom to do what I want when want and where I want.
This trip is a good reminder of that.
Not good enough Internet to trade. But I could find it here without a problem.
Think about that.
Trading literally from a surf beach in Nicaragua. Living like a king.
This is what it all about.
