The trap to avoid when diving into personal development

While on holiday, I could not help myself reflecting. I found myself on the same beach (where I did THIS) I was on my previous holiday there.

You probably can understand why, with this picture. But still, doesn't it show that we are creatures of habit? We go back to what we are familiar with so easily.Is that why we can also easily go round in circles?
I feel this is a trap we can fall into when diving in the ocean of personal development. Yes, knowledge is important, going back for it as often is too...But there is something else that is even more important.

"What else?" I hear you ask. Well, take a stroll with me on that beach and find out.

This is just one thing to really watch out for. Any others spring to mind?
Lemme know!

Peace out!

Where is Guadeloupe?

What springs to mind when I say Guadeloupe ? How do you pronounce the word? ("Gwa-da-Loo-Pay" or   "Gwa-Duh- Loop"?).

For Guadeloupe, you need the latter pronunciation. The former is for Guadalupedifferent place altogether.
Anyway, this post isn't a geography lesson. It's just that Guadeloupe is the island I'm from. A small pile of dust in the Caribbean sea, surrounded by more or less bigger piles. I have grown to expect that noone ever hears of Guadeloupe in the English speaking world.

Not true anymore! Guadeloupe is being put on the map by the British TV series « Death in paradise ». I never knew about the programme until somebody mentioned it at work. How the heck did she notice and retain that useless piece of information? I haven't got the foggiest. What's more is that she remembered that the series was shot in Guadeloupe but the island was  called Sainte Marie on the screen. 

I know who I want on my quiz team!

P.S: I'm following the series now, just because I'm just kinda pleased, maybe a little proud...But I don't like the male lead role...And I don't like that the photography doesn't do the weather there justice, in my opinion...

Oh well! Could be worse.

Beatbox journey to the Caribbean - Part 2

As promised, this is PART DEUX.
Here you can catch a glimpse of what a beach is supposed to look like.
And as a bonus, my old school then my dubstep beatboxing. Apologies for the camera shakiness, it was amplified by Youtube (I used a "fix it" feature that was supposed to minimise it but in the end it made matters worse)

A little digression. I'm reconnecting with my INFP self and researching about it the modern way: via Youtube.
My first reaction is one of wonder - not surprising for an INFP. It's amazing how, no matter how different we look on the outside, however far apart we are, however different our culture may be, we are wired in similar ways. How odd for a french-Caribbean born  man like me to find that he totally relates to an American Youtuber girl (Called Roses of Sunshine3 ) and that even what she says about how SHE functions resonates so much with him?

Like I said, Amazing. I might make a video response one of these days..

Beatbox journey to the Caribbean - Part 1

Well, it's been a while but I'm back!

I've been to the Caribbean. That's always a time of introspection. I guess that's what happens when you go back to where you grew up after along while.
I've got a few videos documenting my trip in a very light fashion (beat boxing all throughout pretty much). Just uploaded the first one.
I might upload the deep soul searching monologue ones too....MIGHT!
