When a single conjures up a take a look at to Barbados, ideas of an idyllic paradise spring to mind. Barbados, at Christmas or other situations of the yr, absolutely provides on that assure time and time once more, go to just after stop by.
All through my present-day stop by “back home”, it has not been all leisure, due to the fact a check out from Trinidad to Barbados for me signifies loads of business enterprise routines, errands as perfectly as doctors’ appointments, together with loved ones and friends’ get-togethers and the numerous functions and social activities linked with the yuletide period.
As I put together for my return to Trinidad and Tobago to settle into my weekly activities, which involve Rotary services functions, shepherding firms as nicely as continuing do the job on crafting assignments, I reflect on the loaded encounter of my check out to Bim.
The spotlight for me was, of class, Judy’s Christmas/birthday celebrations, reconnecting with my kids, grandchildren, and prolonged users of the Springer, Cozier and Barrow clans. Nevertheless, an extra delight was spending time with 3 generations of extended-time good friends from Canada, with whom I was blessed to operate during my consulting days as the founder and running director of Process Caribbean Minimal.
From childhood, I have expended considerably time walking on the shorelines of Barbados, and it was marvellous to go on the tradition, this time though communing with character as nicely as with close friends strolling by way of the Rockley golf study course neighborhood.
As I have penned in the previous, the positive aspects of strolling have been considerable in boosting my holistic well being. There is a lot to gain small business-sensible, mentally, bodily, socially, and spiritually though participating in this activity, whether or not solo or with firm.
No matter what the setting — alongside the beach, throughout the golf system, within botanical gardens, close to a park, through the neighbourhood, in hilly terrain — it is typically on these journeys that ideas are fertilised and answers materialise for problems and alternatives alike.
As we welcome a new calendar year, let us not only cherish the recollections of time put in with relatives and buddies more than the holiday getaway time, but let us also dedicate to embarking on, and sustaining, a healthful lifestyle.
A very good start out for 2023 would be to embrace very good nourishment, slumber, hugs, prayer and meditation, and exercising (together with going for walks), as we continue on to serve our Creator and fellow human beings on this superb journey known as everyday living.
Now let’s embrace the blessing of a new yr in a audio brain and healthier bodies!
