Life exploring travel & inspiration reflection site of Dutch Estonian traveller René
Hello dear Reader,
This is the travel & working Page of the idealist René van der Weerd : ME.
Prepairing my long-life trip by cycle and starting within a year, to break with the silly life and unfriendly rat-race which is going on in our economy and Europe by living on a total different way : travelling and meeting and giving stories to reflect about this world, the way we function, the need of believe of goals and passions in work and family and the dependency and blessing of new technology and Innovations . Unfriendly and protective because lots of Ignorance and unhappy complaining people who are afraid to loose a bit of well known wealth and habbits because of existance of growing number of new citizens like refugees and emigrants .
I am Rene, an enthousiastic, energetic, social & passionfull, most of the time very happy social HSP-man, what is a bit difficult combination and probably what I experience not easy to understand for ''Normal' people. Especially in the Netherlands where the standard is : Act normal, because that is craxy enough. So what ever you do or look different as the average will be shot (or talked about). 10 years ago the Netherlands was a progressive country in many ways. We lost it in just 10 years because of (international) fears. As someone who likes to experience life in many ways, i mostly look to situations and people from a different way and a bit critical to the society we organised in a way there is lots of injustice, based on instability (growth of welth and markets and not on sustainablity and social safety) . After my short commercial carreer of 6 years, I realised i didnt give myself a good contribution of growth by working 80 hours a week and driving 70.000km a year, but i liked to be connecting people _ businesses, cooperation of organisations and the complexity of people with all their differences in motivation and different (hidden) agenda's. So i become trainer communication & coach since 1996. I missed the technical part, but kept that active as hobby . in general the most people around me want to have a simple life but the whole systems work familiy nearly force to make life much more complex then nessessary. Obligations, responsabilities maintenance, workstress and busy schedules makes them trying to protect their freedom(?!), avoinding risks by good future planning and keep on holding on their familiar Comfort-zone. But is this what is life about ? Keeping tight & close to the well known ways is that where a meaningfull life is about? Cntribution to the individual siotuation and moce responsability fo the others to the govermental organisation without a personal tuned policy : institutionalisations. FOr me life is about the beauty of life , nature and unexpected meetings that touches the heart and inspire the soul. Experience life by being open for the unexpected , changes of situations, cultures, habbits and also setbacks and there you need time and freedom to experience. Developping patience,m tolerance acceptance and practice depth collection : To stay no matter what the situation is open, curious, questioning and researching to be able to grow continuously.
Breed geïnteresseerd : k hou van klussen, uitvinden uitzoeken..maar ook dansen (van stijl wals tango jive tot el. Techno house), cake bakken, zeilen (al moet ik echt zelf geen boot!) Het is minimaal 1 jr geleden dat ik beiden gedaan heb..desalnieteplus: express yourself, make every day yr day & B real alive is mijn motto. Dat kan in veel activiteiten om je passie ziel en zaligheid erin te leggen; in het moment nu dus. Full conscious, dus 4 me no drugs&/of veel alcohol! Ik geniet van kleine dingen in t leven..met humor en enige relativering zonder hierin onverschillig te zijn: zingeving en ook altruïsrisch. Mijn allergieën: onverschilligheid, desinteresse, negatieve sarcastische humor ten koste van, `geleuter` over t weer, de prijzen van tuinstoelen, barbecue, hoe goed het hotel was en het zwembad; het vele gebruik van leuk en gezellig, biertje koffie drinken op terras.. Natuurlijk doe ik ook dagelijkse normale dingen als koffie drinken haha (geen bier trouwens) en geniet ervan alleen of samen. Voor mij de uitdaginen de onverwachtse ont-moetingen onderweg.. Met fiets&tentje op reis door Europa!
VROLIJKE WARME GROET, Rene.
