Happy New Year!


It’s been a while … And I am also late to wish everyone a Happy New Year!

But as I am sure everyone is still experiencing, getting back into a rhythm after the winter holidays is always a long process. Especially with kids. And especially if you have to travel to see your family for the occasion. Not to mention if, like in The Netherlands, winter celebrations start in November when Sinterklaas comes from Spain. Which means that it has been almost two months since the craziness started, and still a few more days till school begins and I get at least a few minutes of peace a day.

Blogging has been slow, to say the least, but I am pleased that I have managed to go through all the materials for my course on Nutrition, Heart Disease and Diabetes. I hope to make a quick evaluation of what I’ve learned soon. I am also starting a new project, which is a bit of a gamble as to whether it will succeed or not, but definitely worth a shot. Once it’s properly started, I will give some more details.

I am not going to make any resolutions for this year. There are many things I would like to do and many things I would like to achieve. But New Year’s resolutions are not the way to get there. The promise of a new beginning may get us excited, but before we know it, it’s March or, worse, May, and we haven’t done a thing. Or we have done just one thing, and then lost all enthusiasm to go on. What I have learned from my past failures in this respect is that I need a plan. And Christmas is the worst time to come up with a proper one. So what I will do is take some time and think about what I really want to achieve this year and how I can get there.

I hope you all have a goal for 2019 and I hope you all get there. And most of all, I hope we all enjoy the ride.

  1. Ah yes, the few moments of peace once school starts up again after the holidays! I was just ready to offload my boys back at school, yesterday, when one got sick–in the school parking lot. I was so close, but I guess my peace won’t start until tomorrow (fingers crossed). Good job on finishing your nutrition course. And I look forward to learning what your new project is. Happy New Year!

      So close indeed… I hope your son feels better, for both of you!
