Any authentic people in CR want to connect? I have strived to be living an authentic life even before I had heard of Teal coin the term. I just called it living my truth. But when I heard her talk about being authentic... I said that is it! Such a better way to phrase it. I've been living in Costa Rica for 11+ years now and feeling the need to connect with others that are up for exploring interesting conversations and to exercise their authenticy and excitement for life's experiences.
