This holiday for me was aimed at relaxation and reflection. I was actually happy to do nothing at all, just sit there, and think about my life. Thankfully, I didn’t just do that and managed to have a blast on my last day.
I’m a thinker and someone who spends a lot of time thinking about the way I come across as a person, ways to understand myself and look for ways to better myself. My second day was dedicated to this, as I mentioned in my previous post, I was in a place where I felt confused about what I was doing with my life.
As you have seen, the main pool at Melia is so beautiful, I decided to go spend a day by the pool reflecting and drinking, because if I’m being honest, that is what I’d do with my life everyday, lounge by a pool, read a book, or write.
My friend and I started on this 40-day devotional I began on this holiday because the questions being asked were so relevant in helping me figure things out. It took me so long to answer all those questions, and there were some that I did not have answers to, but I managed to get through most of them. I find them to be such useful questions in helping people who are at the point I am at, figure out what they want to do with their lives. If you do spend time answering them, I’d like to know how useful you’ve found answering the questions. Drop your comments below.
Who am I outside the roles I play?
What are my long-term goals?
What should I be doing with my life right now?
What are my strengths?
What are my weaknesses?
What direction will my life go if I continue doing what I’m doing?
What is my purpose?
Who should I be partnering with?
What resources are available for me to accomplish my goals?
Do I like the person I’ve become?
What do I really want to achieve in this lifetimes?
What brings me my greatest joy?
What am I really passionate about?
What frustrates me most or makes me sad?
If I could do something other than what i am doing now, what would it be?
If i could live somewhere else, where would that be?
Do these things that I do and am involved with make me feel good and happy?
Are my relationships mutually beneficial and symbiotic ?
Is there room for improvement in my relationships?
What have i accomplished so far in my life, is it enough?
If i could do one thing different, what would it be?
After my death, will future generations know that I lived?
How do I want people to remember me?
After my early shift at the pool, I went to have lunch at the Jetty Lounge, a small and beautiful restaurant which sits at the end of the Melia jetty, right on the Indian Ocean. It was one of the most beautiful and serene views I have ever seen. One that if I am opportune to see everyday, will make me a much happier human being.
As I am just a boring human being, I went to take a nap and ended up waking up right in time to go for dinner.
