My favorite season

My favorite season is spring, are you wondering why I write this while it’s summer? I love spring just because it’s a reminder for me that summer is coming.

In spring I can start to see the first green leaves and know the trees will be full of green in the summer again. I know the days will get longer, the sun will warm me up again and give me more energy. I know the best season is yet to come and I almost can’t wait but there’s nothing I can do to make it go faster. So I enjoy my favorite season spring because I know my best season summer is yet to come. And when it’s summer, you know autumn will follow, so I really prefer springtime.

Into the wild

Like a month ago I visited an event about the movie into the wild and why people want to follow the path of Chris Mccandless. Just leave society and live in freedom. Sometimes I’m wondering what freedom is. For some people it might be earning enough money to buy wathever they like, for others it might mean you can just walk in the streets without being scared, but I guess for most people it who visited the event freedom means something like leave your house, your job, your country. Maybe to travel the world or maybe to start over somewhere else.

When the lecturer at the event asked who would like to leave it all behind, all people raised their hands. There were a lot of people on the waiting list for the event so it’s most likely a lot more people have this idea. I am wondering how many will go for real. For me I would like to live somewhere with more hours of sun, somewhere you look out your window and think by yourself ‘it’s beautiful here’, a place where land is affordable so I can get some chicken, somewhere I can’t see neighbours, not a flatland because even while you will get used to views, I have seen flatlands for about 30 years now.

The question is, will I ever go? Will there come a time I have seen enough of the world so I don’t need much of an income anymore? Or will I find a place while travelling where I want to stay? I want to go within 10 years, why 10? Because I still have some countries I want to visit where I might find the perfect place. 10 years because you just can’t go everywhere because it might be really hard to get a visa. Ask me where I am in 10 years, so I feel like I need to be able to tell you where I went and why. Life is so short, why should we not try, what’s the worst that can happen?

De mooiste momenten zijn die waarop je weet wat heb ik het goed en waarop je vergeet wat er eigenlijk ook niet zo toe doet. Koester wat je gelukkig kan maken want de rest zijn maar bijzaken. Rijkdom is kunnen genieten van wat gratis kan zijn zoals de liefde, de zon, een sterrenhemel en de maneschijn.

Is niet alleen het dromen maar vooral het waarmaken van dromen niet iets waar we allemaal regelmatig mee bezig zouden moeten zijn? Ik zie veel mensen om me heen die echt leven voor het werk, die hun dromen uitspreken maar helemaal niet bezig zijn met het najagen van. Je dromen naleven is de beste vorm van ondernemen. Voor sommige kan dat natuurlijk wel ook zijn een miljoenen bedrijf opzetten, maar de meeste die ik ken hoor ik vaak kleine dingen opnoemen waar ze heen zouden willen of wat ze zouden willen doen of grote dingen die ze constant vooruit schuiven of geen enkele stap nemen om daar te komen. Voor de weg naar geluk moet je soms straten tegelen, maar de weg begint al met slechts een steen.
