Living in Costa Rica

Life is continually making the correct decisions. Sometimes you make the wrong decision and it cost you big time. How about you, steered the rudder of your life in the wrong direction? I have and it cost me ten years of my life to get my ship steering in the correct direction. Some people because of achohol, drug abuse or disease never recover and their life is over before its time.

I have been lucky in life. I was surrounded with a good support system. I was a drinker who didn’t know how to shut off the tap. I married a patient woman who stuck with me and made  quiet none threatening demands and slowly turned off the tap.I switched from one fanaticism to another. At forty-eight years of age I became a competitive Powerlifter and it changed my life. I worked long hours but made time for the gym. I entered contest and my lifetime partner was with me.

Because of the decisions she made in life, my wife insured I could live in good style in my old age. My wife is no longer with me. She passed away in 2008, but I talk to her every night and thank her for making the best decision of my life. She married me. Before she died, she said she wanted me to move on and not be a lonely old drunk. Another chapter began because of her generous insight and solid decision making.

Make good decisions and roll with the punches. Being flexible and moving on in life is critical. I live in Costa Rica with a great partner, learning new ways to live life’s great plan.

Pura Vida

Your love means so much
As we go into 1992
I feel so much better about us.
I feel we are still growing and
have so much more ahead of us together
I will always love you!
