When 1 conjures up a take a look at to Barbados, ideas of an idyllic paradise spring to intellect. Barbados, at Christmas or other times of the 12 months, certainly delivers on that guarantee time and time all over again, stop by just after visit.

Through my current pay a visit to “back home”, it hasn’t been all leisure, considering the fact that a go to from Trinidad to Barbados for me suggests plenty of enterprise routines, errands as perfectly as doctors’ appointments, along with relatives and friends’ get-togethers and the many events and social routines related with the yuletide period.

As I prepare for my return to Trinidad and Tobago to settle into my weekly pursuits, which contain Rotary service activities, shepherding enterprises as effectively as continuing get the job done on creating projects, I replicate on the prosperous expertise of my go to to Bim.

On the other hand, an further delight was spending time with three generations of lengthy-time friends from Canada, with whom I was blessed to do the job during my consulting times as the founder and handling director of Process Caribbean Minimal.

From childhood, I have put in substantially time going for walks on the seashores of Barbados, and it was marvellous to proceed the tradition, this time although communing with mother nature as well as with buddies strolling as a result of the Rockley golf training course neighborhood.

There is substantially to obtain business enterprise-wise, mentally, bodily, socially, and spiritually while engaging in this exercise, irrespective of whether solo or with enterprise.

No matter what the environment — together the seaside, throughout the golfing program, in botanical gardens, all-around a park, via the neighbourhood, in hilly terrain — it is usually on these journeys that thoughts are fertilised and methods materialise for worries and alternatives alike.

As we welcome a new calendar year, let us not only cherish the reminiscences of time invested with loved ones and pals above the holiday break season, but let’s also commit to embarking on, and sustaining, a healthful way of living.
