About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Travel, expirence, learn..

ABOUT ME

I realized that 'normal life' is not for me. I wasn't happy, so decided to change it. I quit everything and do what I always wanted to do.. travel.

I started from Africa doing Hitchhiking Contest Paris-Dakar 2011, which was actually Poland-Mali for me. Quite hard and very exiting experience. After that Europe is very easy. I'm nomad two years now and I love it! My next step is all Asia by hitchhiking. If anyone would like to join somewhere on the way or share any tips, feel free to contact!

I'm NOT easygoing, openminded... I'm honest and streight forward. If u prefer to hear polite lies u will not enjoy my company. U might even consider me as rude person.

To all people who asking me questions about my travels. Sorry I cannot always reply, but I have one advice for you : don't search for other people ways, just go and find your own way! Don't worry too much, don't plan too much. Just go with your positive attitude and everything will work out for you !

PHILOSOPHY

"“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending." Maria Robinson

If you are not feeling happy, make changes in your life to be happy.

'Life begins at the end of your comfort zone' (Neale Donald Walsch) So don't be afraid to explore!!

Silence is better then bullshit!

The best plan is no plan!! :D

Installing Love

Tech Support: Yes, how can I help you?

Customer: Well, after much consideration, I've decided to install Love. Can you guide me through the process?

Tech Support: Yes. I can help you. Are you ready to proceed?

Customer: Well, I'm not very technical, but I think I'm ready. What do I do first?

Tech Support: The first step is to open your Heart. Have you located your Heart?

Customer: Yes, but there are several other programs running now. Is it okay to install Love while they are running?

Tech Support: What programs are running?

Customer: Let's see, I have Past Hurt, Low Self-Esteem, Grudge and Resentment running right now.

Tech Support: No problem, Love will gradually erase Past Hurt from your current operating system. It may remain in your permanent memory but it will no longer Disrupt other programs. Love will eventually override Low Self-Esteem with a module of its own called High Self-Esteem. However, you have to completely turn off Grudge and Resentment. Those programs prevent Love from being properly installed. Can you turn those off?

Customer: I don't Know how to turn them off. Can you tell me how?

Tech Support: With pleasure. Go to your start menu and invoke Forgiveness. Do this as many times as necessary until Grudge and Resentment have been completely erased.

Customer: Okay, done! Love has started installing itself. Is that normal?

Tech Support: Yes, but remember that you have only the base program. You need to begin connecting to other Hearts in order to get the upgrades.

Customer: Oops! I have an error message already. It says, "Error - Program not running on internal components." What should I do?

Tech Support: Don't worry. It means that the Love program is set up to run on Internal Hearts, but has not yet been run on your Heart. In non-technical terms, it simply means you have to Love yourself before you can Love others.

Customer: So, what should I do?

Tech Support: Pull down Self-Acceptance; then click on the following files: Forgive-Self; Realize Your Worth; and Acknowledge your Limitations.

Customer: Okay, done.

Tech Support: Now, copy them to the "My Heart" directory. The system will overwrite any conflicting files and begin patching faulty programming. Also, you need to delete Verbose Self-Criticism from all directories and empty your Recycle Bin to make sure it is completely gone and never comes back.

Customer: Got it. Hey! My heart is filling up with new files. Smile is playing on my monitor and Peace and Contentment are copying themselves all over My Heart. Is this normal?

Tech Support: Sometimes. For others it takes awhile, but eventually everything gets it at the proper time. So Love is installed and running. One more thing before We hang up. Love is Freeware. Be sure to give it and its various modules to everyone you meet. They will in turn share it with others and return some cool modules back to you.
