Mastering the art of Liming
Liming in St Vincent and the Grenadines - relaxing, chilling, enjoying life to the full, it’s what we do best over here. Whether you’ve been a ‘limer’ for a while now, or you’re just learning the joys of the lime, I’m pretty sure of one thing, everyone’s lime is different. It’s personal, it means something to you and it takes you to a place of happiness, freedom and laughter.
Welcome to my world, here’s what liming means to me...
I’ve been liming all my life; I was brought up with it. Here in St Vincent and the Grenadines it’s a natural part of what we do, and it’s something we’re all pretty good at. It didn’t take me long to realise the times I spent liming were my happiest moments and that I should dedicate my life to it, to doing what I love...liming!
Liming for me is taking time to relax, unwind, and appreciate what’s really important in life. Heading into Port Elizabeth and taking in the sights at Devil’s table, drinking a rum punch in the sunshine at Basil’s Bar on Mustique, sailing around the Tobago Cays, chatting in Club 28, chilling in Heritage Square or enjoying Vincy Mas Carnival – they’re all really special moments.
What’s important to me is that I make sure I don’t sweat about the small stuff in life. I want to laugh, I want to have fun, and I want to chat. I’ll sit with my friends and we’ll talk about anything, everything and nothing, we’ll take ourselves away from everyday life and we’ll chill. That’s more important for you than you think, it clears your mind and it makes your life so much richer. I even enjoy liming alone, just taking that time out to appreciate how beautiful a view is, how amazing the landscape is, how cold my Hairoun is!
Of course its pretty easy for me to lime living in the tropical paradise of St Vincent and the Grenadines, we’ve got the sun, the beaches, the rum, the music, the people, but you can try it anywhere. I honestly think you should take my advice, start liming daily and when you think you’ve had a bit of practice, come and visit me and see how it’s really done. Trust me, you’ll love it.
I want to make sure everyone gets into liming with me and so I’m creating a society, the Liming Appreciation Society. I’m looking for members from all around the world and for people who I can spread the word to. It’s my mission to show everybody how to have a good time and how to enjoy life to the full.
What do you think? Would you like to join me?!
