“Love is of all passions the strongest, for it attacks simultaneously the head, the heart and the senses.” -Lao Tzu
It wasn’t my intention, but it just happened…
I’ve changed my flight date out of Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo so many times. Hopefully, I can stick to the one I just booked. It’s just so hard to leave. My mind keeps telling me it’s time to leave, but the rest of me is telling me to stay and see what will blossom from this new relationship. However, I have so much that has to be done back home in the states. Besides, I wasn’t even supposed to be in Mexico for this long! I should have been somewhere in South America by now!
Uggh! LOVE. I couldn’t help it! I fell hard. I’m still falling in love everyday. Saying goodbye is going to be so hard. If I didn’t have to take care of things back home, I’d be tempted to stay a little longer. The current global health situation has made it even easier to change my flight with the recent no-fee flight changes and cancellation offers. Let me stop thinking about that. I’m going to try hard to stick to my decision, this time.
Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo is such a lovely place. I love the beautiful beaches with the mountains in the background. The locals are so welcoming and friendly. The community is environmentally conscious, so it’s quite clean. It’s busy here, but not overly noisy. The weather is amazing. The food is always fresh, especially the seafood. It’s easy to find a spot, just about anywhere, to simply relax. I’m taking some online courses, so the ambiance is perfect for reading and studying.
This place has shown me how important it is to just slow down and drink in the moment. So, with much reluctance, I will be going home in a few days.
Oh, Ixtapa-Zihua, you’ve been so good to me. I will come back to you, soon….
