An Important Article

memoirs of a massuer headerSharing is one of the best qualities in the world. It as an action taken with joy and caring and celebration. Whether you are sharing your life with another, giving someone a ride, or simply gifting another human by being kind, sharing is a trait that many tourists here in Manuel Antonio appreciate, as well as around the world. It is easy to forget about the importance of sharing when one is preoccupied with him or herself. To hold and grasp to one-self, and the material things one earns is a lonely dead end street. How many times have we seen a person who looks as if they have it all, and in the end is ultimately unhappy, probably because they chose not to share. To “have it all” is a misnomer. It does not exist. Depending on your religious philosophy we all, have it all by simply being born. Sharing ourselves openly and completely is enough. To be true to oneself some find to be a mountain too high to summit, others live within it with ease, where are you on that scale?

There are lots of ways to share. I share my time the ocean when I surf. I value what the Pacific gives me and although it tests me, it shares its gifts with me. I have friends that share their lives and money with dogs. Good owners are responsible for the animal’s wellbeing, in return the animals love and commitment is what the owner seeks. I have religious friends who swear they are not living this life alone, they are sharing it with Jesus Christ, because he shared something with them a very long time ago. Miss Sun shines its light on us sharing her warmth, coconut trees share their fruit and their juice with us, what can we share and give back today? I love sharing my thoughts through printed words in the Quepolandia, and appreciate when others share their opinions of what I write. I value qualities in this world that help one another around us. We all have a gift of sharing, and caring, and August is a great month to stoke up the fire within ourselves, and help a fellow human get through the day easier. Sharing truly is the essence of what being human is all about. Using our minds and actions to create love around us is all that is important.
