If you are here reading this, you have probably fallen victim to an extremely addictive game in the past. You know what I mean. Those ones that keep you in front of your computer for hours at a time trying to beat your previous score that seems next to impossible.
The circumstances might extenuate an individual’s behavior on the occasion of the meeting. I find I am much more receptive to appreciating someone’s company and character when we are not meeting under the conditions of an emergency.
For the purpose of this article, we will be concentrating on Planned FI because people making an impression about you, when you are walking down the street, hardly matters to anyone.
I’m not much of a hiking person, but for a former local, traveling on trails and climbing parts of mountains is pretty normal. Still dozens and dozens of hikers, backpackers and mountaineers flock to Benguet. Mt. Pulag is mountaineering GSI vs. GIA here, the second largest mountain in the Philippines with a unique terrain of mossy grasslands and green forests in the middle. It has the unique characteristic of changing colors in the seasons. When this was pointed out to me, it was only then that I recognized that it was true! Its like Ayer’s Rock and the deep shades of the Grand Canyon.
As you walk down from the Mosque, back down the blue alleys of Chefchaouen, you start to feel like you are floating downstream a river as the downhill sweeps up your feet in a calm pace. Your thoughts quiet, and you you just simply observe everything that is happening in this utopia of a river. Then by chance, you get washed up aside into a side alley, away from the current. The silence wakes you from the peaceful meditation you were in earlier. In these alleys you find mothers peeling nuts, kids passing the soccer ball, or a man smoking a lonely cigarette.
Chefchaouen is a town located 110 kilometers southeast of Tanger. The reason I went there is a bit of an interesting story. First, on the bus from the port of Tanger to the city, a man was trying to hustle me into joining him at this party “full of cocaine and girls” and stay at his house for the night, free of charge (I really wanted to believe him).
At the end, I only like to say, that it is very important to know the type of person you are going to meet and what type of future you are looking forward, involving that person in your life; so based on that…one should be prepared. This is life and in life, there is no retakes…only one shot.
