Glowing Up In Grenada
OMNoire speaker Kered Clement shares why ‘the first step is the best step in a journey towards a destination
OMNoire Glow Up Wellness Retreat Is Officially Sold Out!
And we couldn’t have done it without like-minded women taking the first step towards embracing transformation in the idyllic Spice of the Caribbean.
Although the entrancing thought of yoga, meditation, land and sea adventures in the tropics sells itself well, we don’t take it for granted that you’ve all carved out time from the demands of life to put yourself and your well-being first.
It’s a step towards a restored you. Towards soaking away stress and watching it drift out to sea. A step towards feeling renewed and broadening your horizons under a glowing sun and most importantly, a move in the right direction to transform your life in the most memorable way.
The first step is not always the easiest to take. I for one, know of the million and one reasons that race through the mind stopping you from purchasing, packing, leaving and making movements.
Believe you me I’ve been there. I relocated to Grenada with a desire to promote #GrenadianLife two years ago. Before I took all of these actions so that the possibility of sharing my journey with you at the Glow Up Retreat could happen, I put many obstacles in my path.
“When I save more."
“Maybe next year.”
“I’ll miss my friends and family.”
“I can’t live with Mosquitoes.”
“I can’t live without Zara.”
In an extensive list of first world dilemmas like not being able to pop into a MAC counter when I felt like it, I prioritised my health and well-being.
My mind desired to declutter from the oversaturation of city life. My body wanted to bask on a beautiful beach, and my soul needed to feel like it was working to live and not living to work. I longed for a better quality of life.
I had to make somewhat of an impulsive decision to force myself to live a life that was more conducive to my mind, body and soul. I had to remind myself that there is nothing wrong with going against the grain when everyone around you is choosing something different.
To date, it was the best decision of my life. I’ve learned a tremendous amount about myself and people. Things I could never have learnt if I didn’t step out of my comfort zone and challenge myself, whether it be jumping off a boat in the middle of the ocean or trekking up a steep muddy mountainside.
When you touch down for the 2017 OMNoire Glow Up Retreat, you will be embraced by a place that forces you into a state of reflection, and puts life into perspective in a terrain that will challenge you mentally and physically.
As the Grenadian Life Ambassador, I am pleased to inform you that CoFounders Christina Rice and Amber Lee Forrester, couldn’t have picked a better location to cultivate strength, growth and positive manifestation.
I can’t wait to meet all of you!
Kered ‘Kiki’ Clement
