Great time for Personal Reflection

December 6, 2021

It’s the most wonderful time of year and oh what a year it has been! Wouldn’t you all agree? Hopefully, a year of growth and stretching for many.

We survived another year of living with this dreadful virus lingering in the atmosphere and killing our loved ones and our economies. If you are from Barbados like me, you also had to endure the trauma of Hurricane Elsa and the ashfall from the La Soufriere volcano. A combination of challenges of catastrophic proportions.

Casting a Vision for 2022 and Beyond

December 29, 2021

I am not the biggest believer of horoscopes; yet, ever so often I feel compelled to take a peak as the universe sometimes seems to be sending me a message.

As I was thinking through my goals for 2022, I made a pact with myself to incorporate more frequent quality moments of pause and to prioritize my health. I now accept that I can only achieve all the things I actually want to accomplish in this life if both my physical and mental health are intact. I now reject the notion of this “always-on” approach and strive for a better blend of life.

In true universe style, my horoscope read “put together a list of what you want to do that will make you feel good about yourself and your life. Taking care of your health and choosing activities that build strength and character will bring you closer to my goal.”

The reality is we stand a better chance at pursuing and achieving our goals if we can connect with the reason why we want to accomplish the goal in the first place. Understanding your why helps you to narrow your focus while shaping a crystal clear vision for your life.
