My coaching fellow once told me, and I really liked the phrase.

How was your 2021?

December and January have pretty much the same, but year-end is a great moment to reflect who you are and what you learned to thrive in the next year. In this post, I will capture my examples, hoping you might get something out of it and reflect your own year.

10 Reasons to start planting foods at home

English日本語EspañolFrançaisPortuguês

Among so many things in our planet, there is one big group which maintains life of all living things.

What is it?

Plants. Maybe if we remove Ego from PLANET, it becomes PLANT. WIthout them, our complex eco-system will be destroyed.

We sort of know that it is true, but in a modern convenient society where more and more people live in cities and can do so many things with one click, we tend to detach ourselves from plants.

I was no exception, but I had a chance to start planting food at home (vegetables and herbs) which definitely made my life better, so I would like to share 10 reasons to do so, hoping that some of which (even one, if not all) might apply to you to be a little bit happier.

Kenya 6ー Learning from COVID-19 charter flight to leave Africa

English, Español, Français, 日本語

Since ever I made a critical life decision to leave Kenya, I have been waiting for an opportunity to leave Kenya for a long time when the airport has been closed due to COVID-19, just like many other countries (in fact it was just 1-2 month, but it psychologically it felt like much longer).

Some governments/embassies made efforts to arrange a chartered flight to send their citizens back home, but the announcement comes with very short notice (e.g. 3 days – 1 week, which is hard for someone like me without a willingness to come back).
