Living "in the moment" in Mexico!

As of this time last week, I thought that on January 1st, I would be driving to the fishing village of Melaque for a month.  All signs pointed that way.  I had been counting on it for months..........and talking about it.

THEN a family matter arose and I did a U-turn on New Year's Eve that caused me to still be here in San Miguel.

It's okay.  Everything I needed to do to be gone for a month was done.  Woo hoo, an open calendar and no "to dos" left to do.  That's the bright side.  And, I try to always focus on the bright side.

In addition, today is my grandson's fifth birthday!  So, I'm here for that.

The weather in San Miguel has been very mild - in the high 70's and low 80's.  Thankfully.  It was a delight to feel the sun while sitting on the roof terrace yesterday and reading.

I've adopted this attitude..........

Find a sun spot and relax......

Being flexible and positive is the only way to live life.  I have been reminded of that this past week.  There is always a silver lining.

With nothing to do but enjoy each day, I've found my silver lining.

What about you?

Recently a friend of mine described me as "adaptable".
I took it as a compliment. I'm ready for Mexican life...

Babs said...

In my opinion it is a compliment as well. Definitely required in Mexico......If you can't " go with the flow" don't even THINK of moving here!

Never do today what you can put off until tomorrow is my motto!

So true, Tancho........

If I were any more relaxed, I would be sleeping in a coffin.

Babs said...

So, you are so relaxed Steve, you could lay in the sun with Velcro and prop your feet on the wall?

GREAT. I'm loving your trip and wondering why I haven't been to that part of the country.

When you get to Oaxaca, try to eat at Casa Oaxaca. LOTS of very good restaurants in the city........

Enjoying the six months of perfect weather here in Puerto - could not be better ;-)

Rub it in Calypso, rub it in. 38F this A.M. Getting ready to go out and I have on so many layers of clothes that I could fall over and wouldn't get hurt!

I've got to find a solution, such as you have, for a 3 month rental for Nov, Dec, Jan to be away from here......Brrrrrrr!

Great post with a good reminder for starting out the New Year! Hope your 2015 is great and you always have a sunny spot.

You may be shivering in 38 degrees, but keep things in perspective. Here in Cleveland the temperature is 11, and it's supposed to be colder tomorrow. Fortunately I am leaving tomorrow. Even though the low temps in Oaxaca have been in the 40s at night, I am gladly leaving winter behind.

Aaah, Bill, but the key is that we have no central heat. One of the greatest inventions of mankind. So the house is almost as cold inside as it is outside. The warmest I can get my bedroom with a space heater and electric blanket is about 64! Hate it.......

This is true, Barbara. I remember one time in Mexico City where the temperature got down into the 30s. It was rather chilly in the apartment.
