Panama

So here I am in Panama. First all inclusive experience since 2004 and def the first one since getting sober. My sponsor is getting married and when asked the obvious answer was yes. Middle of January in Toronto isn't the friendliest of weather and I'd never been to Panama so, here I am. A couple of days before the trip I started to have doubts. I mean it's an all-inclusive so that means booze everywhere and lots of it. I started to feel trepidation around not knowing anyone but the bride and wether I was going to have proper food, no yoga... Blah, blah, blah. All fear based excuses to why I was obviously having doubts to this vacation. Well, day 1 is pretty much in the can and I can tell you I'm incredibly glad I said yes to this trip. The food is pretty limited and yes of course the booze flows like water and there's no yoga classes but hell I'm a bloody teacher so I can teach my own damn class☺️ Fact is it's been great. I have met some amazing women (and men) whom I know I will be friends with after this week. One woman in particular who amazingly enough doesn't even drink. How awesome is that? I will be leading us through a class on one of the most beautiful beaches I've been on. The sand is back, grey, white and everything mixed into one. The volcanic sand is just gorgeous. The ocean is stunning and the sun is exactly what this little yogi needs. I'm so glad I said yes. Saying yes to life is what makes life worth living. Having the courage to say yes even if you are nervous with the outcome. Life is too short to say no to amazing experiences. Life is just too damn short period. Say yes...
