Tuesday’s Seeds of Hope: “Pura vida” my friends! I was reminded of this saying yesterday while reading an article. Pura vida is Costa Rican and literally means “pure life.” In Costa Rica, they use it to mean “full of life,” “the beauty of life” or the “essence of life”. It is used as a greeting or farewell as a way to say life is good or as an expression of gratitude. It is acceptance and awareness, gratitude and beauty. It embodies all. Today notice the pura vida all around you and celebrate all that is a part of your greatest gift … LIFE!
