Going Back to Work After Having A Baby

by Davy Melis Internet and Businesses Online, Self Improvement, Home and Family
Going Back to Work After Having A Baby First and foremost, we do not have children. Not because we do not want to, but because we have thought carefully about the consequences. For medical reasons, we are advised not to have kids. I write this because I regularly hear complaints from colleagues that there is not enough time to help your children grow up, that you always have to take them to the daycare because you have to work yourself, and that ...

I Don’t Want To Spend This Much Time On Traffic Jams. How About You?

by Davy Melis Home Based Business, Travel and Leisure, News and Society
I Don’t Want To Spend This Much Time On Traffic Jams. How About You In life, we spend a lot of time waiting. We wait for red lights to turn green, for level crossings to open after the train passes by, for blocking delivery trucks to unload their goods, for our next paycheck, for traffic jams to clear up again and so on. If you search for traffic jams on the internet, you will see that the roads are becoming increasingly congested. Our nature ...

Skydiving – Feeling free as a bird!

by Davy Melis Internet and Businesses Online, Travel and Leisure, Recreation and Sports
Skydiving!Feeling free as a bird! In 2012 I went on a trip to Spa, Belgium with my best friend. He received a ticket for a skydive for his birthday. Of course, we didn’t want to miss the occasion to snap some pictures while he jumped out of an airplane. It was an early day because we needed to drive for about 2 hours to get there on time. It was a cloudy day, with a possibility of showers. The weather always ...

Do we want to escape our standard 9 to 5 life?

by Davy Melis Internet and Businesses Online, Travel and Leisure, Home and Family
Do we want to escape our standard 9 to 5 life? Last week I was on a day trip with my spouse Sil and our dog Lorion to the Belgian coast at Oostende. We had planned a day off to take time for ourselves and just “seize the day”. See what came upon our path and let everything else behind. Sil is a sea-person, I’m more a mountain-person but we all make sacrifices to keep our balance. The day started with ...

Diversity in South Africa Early 2012 me, my spouse and some friends came together to decide our next holiday location. We didn’t want to go just “on a next trip” but we wanted to make a big journey for 3 weeks. After a few hours, we decided to go to South Africa to search for the Big Five in the jungle and in the National Kruger Park, see the city life of Cape Town, and whatever else we had the opportunity ...

Effects Of A Gastric Bypass On Your Partner After years of working and living together, you easily fall into the bad habit of “no time”.

By taking time for enjoying life, we forget to take care of our body ...

What about life on other planets?

by Davy Melis Travel and Leisure, News and Society, Reference and Education
What about life on other planets? Do you know how many planets there are? How many galaxies? How many stars? Ever questioned how it’s possible that there are so many other globes around us and as far as we know we are the only ones walking and talking. The number of galaxies in the universe is largely unknown to humans, in fact, scientists speculate that there might be an infinite number of galaxies. Our galaxy, the Milky Way, is estimated to host ...

I do love my walks

by Davy Melis Health and Fitness, Recreation and Sports, Home and Family
I do love my walks Once-in-a-while, we need time for ourselves. Once-in-a-while, we need to escape from the life that lives us. When we don’t have enough time or power to clear our minds, that’s the moment we need to make time to adjust our speed. I like to take time to go out for a walk. I love to walk in nature. Hear the sounds of the trees, the birds, to see the animals around us. I’m lucky to live ...

Windows 10 – Better or worse?

by Davy Melis Business, Computers and Technology, Internet and Businesses Online
Windows 10 – Better or worse? What about the latest product of Microsoft? The all-new Windows 10? At first, it seems like a completely new version but when you go deeper you’ll see that it’s just an improved version with a new layout on top of it. Let’s check the history. There was a time, long, long ago, when there was DOS. The time where there was no graphics screen or a mouse to point and click. It was just in 1995 ...

Shyness.

by Davy Melis Relationships, Self Improvement, Communications
Shyness. Why are we so shy? Why don’t we just start a conversation with someone? Why can’t we look someone in their eyes when they are talking to us? Are we so different from the popular people? Many of these questions are playing in a lot of peoples minds, over-and-over again. So much that they would lock them self in their house and shut off every social contact. I never locked myself up but I have had many years that I didn’t ...

Stretch your muscles and clear your mind Recently I was talking with a good friend of mine. Because of the Fibromyalgia, she lives with constant pains true her whole body. She told me that she was following yoga lessons for a while and that she has less pain now by keeping her body In motion. Instead of taking more rest, she kept moving. Not only is it good for her body, also for her mind. She’s more at rest, at peace with ...

It’s been a while…

by Davy Melis Internet and Businesses Online, Health and Fitness, Home and Family
It’s been a while…  …since my last blog. It’s been a real rollercoaster for me. I’m not writing this down to complain, on the contrary, I’m more tenacious than before. The last 8 months I’ve gone from a lot of pain to confused, confounded and back to reality. Yes, I know, that line is also confusing but let me try to explain. (July 16 –25 2016 we went on vacation to Norway with the MMRC (Miata MX-5 Roadster Club). Magnificent country, ...

Do I get bored of the MX-5 trips with the club? No, I don’t :-D It’s so much fun to go out on a day-trip with those people. It’s almost like going out for a day with your family. What do we do?

by Davy Melis Travel and Leisure, Recreation and Sports, Home and Family
What Is The Fun Of An MX-5? Many people asked me: “what is the fun of owning and driving a Mazda MX-5?”. Let me start by giving you a little tour back in time. It was around spring 2010 that I was talking to a good friend (who owns a grey MX-5 from 1998). He was telling about the club he joined and how they enjoy cruising the country with the top down. He told me that this would also be a ...

What does it take to write a blog ?

by Davy Melis Self Improvement, Home and Family, Writing and Speaking
What does it take to write a blog? Someone told me that writing blogs can set you to peace, to be at rest. I'm not quite a writer, I’m not a big talker. I'm more one of those who's watching from the sidelines, to keep out of the spotlights. Never draw attention. Keep my safe distance. Keep out of trouble. But then again, keeping everything I see, everything I hear, everything I feel to myself is a bit selfish. Why not keep a ...
