    a state of shock Many thoughts crossed my mind during those minutes and I still goes through the events of that day in my mind What will happen now Will we be able to come through this Is this a final collapse and will everything fall apart But of course life continues and I m not telling you this because you shall feel sorry but because I want to give you a picture of feelings and reactions during and following a sacking To be sacked is like a bolt from the blue and the emotional pattern is hard to describe but is often compared to what happens emotionally when we are exposed to attacks accidents death or severe illness The parallelism in how we feel it brings conscious and unconscious memories to our mind and reminds us of former episodes So it is a mess of feelings of great complexity Loss of identity being discarded unfairness hopelessness insufficiency being up against a superior force economic and existential uncertainty to mention some Being part of situations like this reminds us of our own experiences and emotional feelings from our past comes to our minds and we react and gets involved So the walkabout is under attack or is it This sequence of unpleasant events reminds me of the importance of keep going with my Walkabout both physically and mentally using it to bring myself and us and our needs in focus Sometimes chaos leads to creativity and new insight Posted by Torben Schmidt at 4 48 AM No comments Labels Feelings Relive Sacking Shock Walkabout Newer Posts Older Posts Home Subscribe to Posts Atom Guestbook Please leave a note here Subscribe To Posts Atom Posts All Comments Atom All Comments This is a Blog about using Walkabout in a chaotic situation in my life trying not to walk in my own footprints and changing my personal patterns how to challenge myself and break my own personal boundaries habits behavior and taboos how unemployment can be changed into being a positive experience with the help of coincidences and curiosity What is this about Why am I doing this How am I doing this With the hope that this will inspire others to try the same Feel free to comment and to join me on my journey I am Torben Schmidt Copenhagen Denmark Blogger and Photographer I have a degree in engineering and one in the psychology of organizations I m unemployed and on my way which is of importance in relation to this blog Labels Aboriginals 1 Anger 1 Authenticity 1 Beauty 1 Breaking boxes 1 Broadcast 1 Bullitt 1 Car chase 1 Care 1 Chaos 1 Control 1 Creativity 1 Discovery 1 Emotions 6 Everyday life 1 Expectations 1 Feelings 4 Field Music 1 Forrest Gump 1 Forward looking 3 Guestblogger 1 Guestbook 1 Harmony 2 How far spread 1 Humor 1 Identity crisis 1 Imaginary 1 Insecure 1 Intensity 1 Jim Morrison 1 Job seeking 2 Local outplacement bureau 1

    is even more important to fight against this self perception and try to find a personal way which enrich one s life mentally This Walkabout is one of the mentally processes I use to avoid looser mentally and to give myself my creative energy back Take a look at this short clip with Director and Inventor of The Eden Project Tim Smith The Eden Project is situated in Cornwall UK and deals with our dependence on and connection to the natural world Tim uses very few words to describe the project but being a very enthusiastic fiery soul he is able to set the scene in relation to looser and winner mentality hear his voice and look at his expression and enjoy the smile of the newsreader at the end It is hard not to feel better afterwards See it here partly in Danish I m afraid Posted by Torben Schmidt at 12 14 PM No comments Labels Expectations Looser mentality Self perception The Eden Project Winner mentality Tuesday May 4 2010 Simplicity Uffe Harder 1930 2002 was a Danish poet and writer His poetry was characterized by simplicity meant positive in its expression and wondering at the phenomena in life Being in a chaotic situation I find simplicity a relief and a way to relax and recover Bellevue is a beach north of Copenhagen I used some time last autumn taking pictures there and here is one of those and a poem by Uffe Harder from the collection of poems called Positions Positioner da 1964 The translation is unauthorized made by myself Bellevue September Sand wire a row of beach cubicles with letters holes in the ground wind across the sand waves deepening darkness small water basins with fountains for drinking no traffic on the roads the car alone in the car park deepening darkness sand coldness leaves on the trees on the threshold of my thirtieth year here on the sand in the deepening darkness and the wind the questions assume a painful likeness to answers Posted by Torben Schmidt at 8 31 AM 1 comment Labels Chaos Simplicity Uffe Harder Monday May 3 2010 How am I doing this Not much time is left in a busy daily round for reflection on what to do in the future I will take the chance and let reflection and interests set the direction for a while and see what happens Coincidences has a great influence on our life and my Walkabout is an attempt to push myself into a more chaotic and unpredictable direction So for the time being my personal interests and reflections on subjects people themes projects books exhibitions pictures etc will set the direction and sometime in the future we will see if the pieces of this puzzle fall into place and form the frame for a new job life I think the following classical scene You re the man now Dog from the movie Finding Forrester says more than many words about how to go

    a system point of view A head is turned towards me noting You can probably understand that if you don t have the right ticks and the requirements are not met we as the local outplacement bureau will not get the job next time The discussion between the two case workers continues Well to me it sounds reasonable that we secure two jobs for the case workers rather than one for me It is probably best for you Time passes and I feel more and more runned over and without any influence I m just sitting collapsing on a chair in front of the desk There is a lot of typing on the keyboard the journal is updated I m systematized A leaflet about work experience in a company is pushed across the table You ve been to several meetings have you not heard about this A fleeting wonder passed her face however is was quickly swept away It s probably best for you Now I begin to come to myself in front of the desk now it is becoming enough Three quarters has past with requirements I had to meet Where am I in this But we know what goals we must meet therefore the case worker tried But my situation now is that the For the first time the two case workers looks at me and listens for a short time But what about the ticks asks the first caseworker The second case worker now takes leadership and makes a plan Well go home and think about it and then we can talk about it next time I leave the office with the white walls new candidates has arrived and a case worker has risen from his desk and are in the process of counting and pointing at a wall calendar it s obviously something with timetables and activation the candidate sits silently chewing the side bar of his glasses and watch the arms swinging up and down I trudges across the parking lot I m shocked my whole body is shaking I feel slighted I feel the humiliation and the feeling of not having control over my own situation this is meaningless Don t forget the parking card someone is shouting after me the first caseworker is clearly nervous that I will not hand it back I return the parking card the caseworker is relieved now she is in control of the situation I return to the home base wondering how long it is necessary to put up with this And wondering if others have suffered similar experiences PS The next meeting was canceled because of reorganization so now it starts all over again again what a waste of mental and economical resources Posted by Torben Schmidt at 12 01 PM Labels Emotions Job seeking Local outplacement bureau Meaningless No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom Guestbook Please leave a note here Subscribe To Posts Atom Posts Comments Atom
