It only took four days for me to fall in love with Jamaica. I’ve spent the last few days in paradise, and I’ve spent most of today wondering how I can make my life paradise. It’s been over a month since I’ve written because I’d lost inspiration and direction. It’s amazing what a difference fours days surrounded by new sights, adventures and people can make. I fell in love with the smell of the air, the fresh fruit dangling from branches, and the stress free nature of the people.
Could you imagine meeting people who could count the amount of times they used the internet? What about people who didn’t use social media? Have you every met a group of people who despite being away from their family and spending all day at work felt that “life was good”? It makes you wonder what you really need to be happy, and if we’re living in excess. I mean surely if they are happy with no internet and fresh food growing from trees, I can do without some of my possessions.
So, the question still remains, how do I create a life I don’t want to escape from? I hope this experience changes me for the better, and I plan to figure out the answer to that question.
