The New Year’s Resolutions phenomenon

December 28, 2012 | Inspirational column | 0 comments

New Year’s Resolutions: the phenomenon that occurs when the end of a year is approaching and people suddenly get in the “change-mood”. Millions of resolutions will be made. This mood (and the resolutions) will disappear as fast as it came, after the first month of the new year.
As you can probably guess, I’m more the anti-New Year’s Resolution type. I don’t believe people will suddenly make the changes which they’ve put on a list at the end of a year. That’s also the reason why New Year’s Resolutions are actually not pursued after January and completely forgotten in March. Those resolutions are mostly standard things like:
– a more healthy lifestyle
– find a new great job
– save money
– stay in touch with family and friends
…etcetera.

The Deja -Definitely- Vu

December 8, 2012 | Inspirational column | 0 comments

We all know the normal deja vu: when you’re in a situation and you have the strong feeling that you’ve already experienced the situation (or had the experience) before.
Then we have the Déjà – Definitely- Vu…;). It occurs when you don’t just have the feeling, but you know that you’re in a situation that you’ve experienced before in the past.
Even been in this sort of a situation?
It’s kinda extraordinary actually. Getting into an exact same situation, not once but twice. And I’m obviously not talking about doing the same groceries in the same supermarkt every week…;). I’m referring tot the kind of situations that you’ve experienced before and which can change your life not knowing if it will end the way you want it to.

Some things will never change…

So I was in my old-hollywood-movie-mood again. As I watched some movies I realised, some things will never change. Ofcourse technology had changed 180 degrees from 1950 till now. And sure… the material life as we know it was unthinkable back in the days. But certain things will always stay the same…:
– Men will be men (Some like it hot, 1959)
– Diamonds & pearls are still a girl’s best friend (80% of the movies from let’s say…1920 till now)
– We still like good dancing… (Fred Astaire / Gene Kelly  movies)
– And great sense of humour (Laurel & Hardy, Charlie Chaplin)
– Sense of great fashion style (Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly and many more..)

Just one moment can change everything
