Playa Del Carmen, Mexico is lovely right now.
Of course there are the beautiful beaches, mild weather and tons of sunshine (except it’s been raining a bunch since I arrived!)
I am so not complaining! It is amazing here and I feel calm and relaxed. It feels good to leave the crazy fast energy of New York. I can breathe again and I actually find myself getting bored. Can you believe that? I cannot believe I feel bored!
Boredom Is Not Bad.
When I say bored I don’t mean it to sound like a bad thing. I mean I don’t feel the countless unending demands I normally feel when I’m at home. You know the constant mind-chatter that demands you do everything perfectly 5 minutes ago? Or is that just me?
There is always a constant buzz of “Have to do this” and “Gotta finish that” and “That was due yesterday!”
But the endless chatter is muted here. Since I arrived in Playa, with it’s cute outdoor cafes and buzzing 5th Avenue shops, it’s like someone has turned down the volume of my life. It is the weirdest feeling!
Peace & Quiet.
Always seeking to simplify my life, literally every action I take in New York is n attempt to make my life easier, less hectic, calmer, more peaceful…you name it…I am desperate for it. Well I try and try and I’m mostly unsuccessful. This is because I think that is just the way the city is. I can’t change New York and I can’t change my relationship with New York either! Silly girl I am for even trying:-)
Instead of fighting I think I’ll just stop and be grateful for this break in Playa. I can relax into my boredom and enjoy the slower pace. It feels like there is so much time to burn here! I’m loving it!
Enjoy these snaps!
