Break your routine! Just for a day, do something you won’t have normally done.
You will be amazed at how refreshing it could be! Corey Graham.
Try it! Seriously! Try it!
I believe that as annoying and disruptive some breaks can be, there is still a lot of good in them.
Well that is if you doing freak out and complain and complain and
complain. Just keep your basic plans in front of you and enjoy it!
Breaks can really
- enlargen your perspective
- give you totally new perspective.
- get a glimpse of what your future holds on your current path
- You might get to see your skills in action. You might be pleasantly surprised at what you are capable of
Give yourself permission to take breaks.
I learnt this last year when I went to St. Lucia Carnival at the height of ‘Festival Fever’ for Crop Over in Barbados.
I was a bit skeptical as to how the trip would turn out, especially since I didn’t have many real links in St. Lucia.
However, I ended up having a blast and realising how small and yet how similar the Caribbean is.
Yet still how far apart and oblivious we are of each other….
It took 9 months for the St. Lucian Road March to leave Wave FM and
reach Bajan airwaves of Mix FM 96.9, Hott 95.3 and 98.1 FM The One….
‘Caribbean Integration’ will be a future post. For now I wanted make the point
that the trip expanded my mind to appreciate that I am a really
Caribbean Man from Barbados. And now I can look at this coming summer from a much broader perspective.
Yes, Yes small islander still having to hunt for my food …but now in a concrete jungle.
Since then I have given myself permission to take breaks and life seems all the brighter and more fulfilling for it
Break the Routine up a bit. Don’t expect chaos, Just some perspective. Allow yourself be refreshed!
