Eternal Spring

DSC_0238

We don’t know what we have until it’s gone, or until we leave it behind. The latter one very much applies to me. I have been out of El Salvador for about seven years now…Wow, they went by fast! Spain, UK, Canada… yeah, it sounds frantic… and it actually has been. Every time I come back home to rest for a bit, it feels as if my life has been suddenly paused. And I can take everything in with much more amazement! I enjoy how it is Spring/Summer for about half the year, how the flowers are always in bloom and the greens are always green, and how the sun comes out everyday even if it’s only for ten minutes. Sometimes, it feels good to push the pause button in our lives, and realize how lucky we truly are. 

No sabemos lo que tenemos hasta que lo perdemos, o hasta que lo dejamos atrás. Esto último se aplica mucho a mi situación. He estado fuera de El Salvador por alrededor de siete años y realmente, ¡se han pasado volando! España, Inglaterra, Canadá… sí, han sido unos años bastante ajetreados. Por eso, cada vez que regreso a casa a descansar, es como si mi vida se pusiera en pausa o en slow motion y, ¡lo veo todo con nuevos ojos! Disfruto de la semi-eterna Primavera, disfruto de que siempre haya flores, disfruto de que los verdes sean siempre verdes… Muchas veces somos muy bendecidos sin percatarnos, ¿no creen?
