This year went by fast, I will not even sugar coat this statement. I feel like I just ended 2017 and 2019 knocking on my door too fast. Where did the time go?
I would admit this year a lot has happened and I have also been in a rush. I have learned a lot and grown a lot as a person. I have also been in a rush a lot, I have basically been rushing everything, even to the point I decided to put my watch 20 minutes faster than the actual time.
Today I decided to have my watch right, with the right time so I wont be rushing. I am not a morning person so I am not even going to lie to myself about reaching anywhere early. If I am running late, so be it I won’t be speeding down the highway, breaking the orange light to reach ” on time” . I have been rushing , rushing , rushing away and time have just passed away.
I will embrace every moment, take each minute, hours and days with gratitude. 2019 is my year to shine, step out my comfort zone and begin to slow down. It’s not a race to the finish line.
I have no new year resolutions and have no intentions to create one. 2019 I am looking forward to new challenges, improving myself, living a full life, exploring this mysterious world, forgiving, letting go and taking everything slowly.
2018 was a rush, a beautiful rush that almost broke me . Honestly, 2018 was a tough year that had me rushing and panicking. 2019 I would not let time pass and let the clock tick away with my life.
You can feel it in your veins. You become more aware and your heart can no longer just accept what lies ahead for you. You know something has to change.
Dreams become more clearer and you can feel it in your bones that something within you wants to be awakened. You can no longer just let everything around you just pass. You start to understand life more clearer and have a better understanding of what you want from your life.
You would be determined to design the type of life you want. Signs begin to show, you begin to see a certain number more often and you begin to feel more and see situations more clearer.
This can be a beginning, a beautiful beginning but to get a beginning you need to embrace the end. Sometimes a end can be painful but it’s up to you how you take this ending journey. Signs can show up in dreams, numerology or even a random stranger. It’s the beauty about life that can be adventurous and mysterious.
It’s those moments you take to embrace what is in front of you. To love the very moment you have because it’s a blessing. Take that moment to learn from the situation and move on because everything that is happening around you and within you is your spiritual awakening moments in this life.
We have reached another year of celebration. The cheer, joy,food,drinks,music, laughter and gift giving is tradition and excitement for many. With many also take this time to reflect on the birth of a little baby boy many centuries ago.
Whatever the reason is to you, we have reached Christmas 2018 and bringing in newness into our lives. The Christmas cheer from parang music , many heading to the beaches , to church, a neighbor, family member or just taking in the moment to just relax is a delightful feeling by many. Lots are still rushing with last minute painting, changing curtains or looking to cook up a large meal for family members and friends. Ham, Turkey, Pastelles, Puncha Creme and Black Cake sharing and many enjoying a good lime is a traditional moment that never gets old. Everything is a lime in Trini style but with Christmas limes everyone wants to participate as you are guaranteed a glass of ginger beer, sorrel or Puncha Creme.
This is the time everyone comes around, you get that call from everyone to wish you a Happy Christmas. Everyone wants a taste of Grandma Black Cake because you know she has that extra special touch that makes everyone wants more and more and trust me that cake wont last more than one day.
Christmas is here and each year brings around a joy that brings everyone around. This is a taste of my Christmas, hope everyone is enjoying the cheer.
The little joys found in decorating for the season of Christmas. This ranges from a snow man, to a nativity scene, artificial flowers or real flowers grown in a garden. Each decoration is unique, special and has a taste of a little Christmas Cheer for everyone.
The rush of the wave, the energy, current, the pull and sometimes heaviness of the ocean is a stir of emotions from the sea many cannot understand. Its a beauty to see from afar, it can be thrilling to surf with and for some the water beating on you can feel like the ocean water is washing away someone daily stress.
The ocean is one to be respected, cared for and connected with, she has been with us since the beginning of time. She has seen generations come and go and she still stands with us today. The Ocean is the source to our lives, the ocean has been feeding us with life from the very beginning of time. Her beauty and radiance is one of the many wonders of the world that can never be replaced.
So I just have to ask, why are we killing her in our times?
Don’t we think she will take back what belongs to her after some time?
To my vacation in paradise earlier this year. One of the many sister islands close to me that I enjoy spending time. Sand, sea and less than one hour flight from home. Barbados was a beauty and I enjoyed visiting this island that is so close to my home land Trinidad.
