Two and a half weeks ago I left my wife and two kids behaving in the Netherlands.
It is wintertime in theNetherlands.
That means cold and dark days.
My dad had it as well, it's called SAD.
Seasonal Affective Disorder. -
I once read that over 60% of the western society suffers from this in different degrees.
Some people just get really depressed and are not able to function any more until spring comes along.
For me it is, lack of energy, quickly irritated.
Not being the nicest husband and not the best dad and definitely not the person I want to be.
I used to go through these winters and we excepted it as it was, although not fun.
Not for me and not for the people close to me.
Extra vitamin D3
Self love .
Maybe be this year was a bit worse, because of the fact that my dad died.
This year I decided to do something about it.
Something that wasn't possible before.
I went online at a Thursday and booked a ticket to Bangkok.
Two days later I was in the air.
And a day later I was in the beach soaking up sunlight.
The kids need to go to school so they couldn't come.
My battery is charged again and I'm full off energy again.
What do you think?
A: Dirk? You're a horrible selfish egocentric maniac!
B: Dirk? That is awesome. Doing this so that you know that you can be there for your family in a lot better way.
And what would you do if you had that choice?
Stay or go?
