It´s Been Great started out as an enormous thank you to all those who have come once again and newies who have tried out Los Balos, El Médano for the first time. A never-ending guest list that evolves and many times feels like an enormous family that comes and goes. So, tons of gratitude.
We try and work hard to get it better. Every year, our main goal, is to turn it up a knotch.
But of course, we also wanted to include what we are letting go of for 2020. I love these things because life is a shit tunnel full of gold and sometimes you just feel like an alien…
Knowing it’s a month of proposals, this is our list of 8 things to quit in 2020:
- Trying to please everyone.
- Fearing change.
- Living in the past.
- Being afraid to be different.
- Sacrificing your happiness for others.
- Thinking your not good enough.
- Thinking you have no purpose.
The older I get, the more I realise the value of privacy, of cultivating your circle and only letting certain people in. You can be open, honest and real while still undertstanding not everyone deserves a seat at your table.
Each year is a great one! 2019 has been crucial in many ways but at least it seems that we are more concious of our harmful relationship with our planet. Can we beat the disaster? and #EARTHBEAUTIFULEARTH have been our main mottos on social media.
So guys, what’s the most important change you´ve made to live more sustainably this year? Although we still have many things to improve. At Los Balos, El Medano, we have changed soaps and cleaning products to softer ingredients. Bed linen and towels are now pure white cotton. But we admit there is a long road ahead.
Babe, we still want to meet the challenge: Earth, beautiful Earth. Don´t be shy, be social and catch us if you can.
