A healthy and deeply valuable part of life is making it a purposeful mission to challenge your beliefs as often as possible and to experience people who look at things through a completely different lens of understanding.
Mexico City (CDMX) tops the list among my favorite places on Earth. There is always a vibrancy to it, a mix of dynamic and interesting personalities, and even a little magic everywhere you look.
If you want to truly experience a culture, look no further than their celebrations. Día de los Muertos (or Day of the Dead) originated several thousand years ago with the indigenous people, who considered mourning the dead disrespectful. To them, the dead are kept alive in memory and spirit.
It points to my favorite part of their culture— the people in their lives and their relationships to them hold the highest value in their society. What would it look like if we prioritized the ones we love (and hate) most in our lives and focused on making them the epicenter of our decision-making and motivations?
