2018 is fast approaching, I can’t believe we are already
Glad 2017 is over. What kind of year was that?
I struggled a lot on a personal level and my blogging here
went a bit quiet.
Moving flat 2x within 2 month, that drained out all my
energy. Shortly after that, my parents in Germany got their notice on their flat
too. WTF! Sorry! Why now?
3 x moving was crazy. I can’t describe how I felt when my

This happened to me. Although my friends wouldn’t expect that, but it happened.
So the solution is to create a new habit, new routine.
I have a few things already in mind and planned for this
year and I will talk more about creating new habits because I need to do it
right now myself.

You need to do the exercises yourself but I love to motivate
you. It motivates me to motivate others. It’s a two way, win- win plan.
Let’s do it.
