Have an invite to share. Tell me one of your recent life changing experiences
Meeting this guy, a now friend, Munir has really altered my perception of "Success", "Happiness", & "Failure". I honestly don't think it was chance that I met him either. A strange god damn cosmic alignment of life stories. HAHA
I always enjoy meeting new and interesting people, and striking up conversations with them about their life experiences. Tonight, by chance, I happened to run into Munir; someone so unorthodox and untethered from society's conventions and norms. We all know how judgmental the so called "Community" can be when you choose to do something unconventional with your life. Munir is from Vancouver, Canada who last year decided that there's more to life than his daily regimen and lifestyle. He's had to fight through a lot and become independent at an early age. He asked himself that "what if" question that many philosophical thinkers do, "If I were to die tomorrow did I take in and experience everything the world has to offer, and did I leave an everlasting impact on this world?" He moved out of his apartment, sold all of his belongings (furniture, car, etc.), chose to work remote for a while. He then invested in a minivan and completely gutted the interior to build a living/work/sleep area. For the last 10 months he's been on a "Soul Searching" road trip traveling from Vancouver, through the West Coast (Mountain/Pacific Area), Rockies/Canyons, West South Central, South Atlantic, and now working his way through the Northeast and Midwest, before heading back to Vancouver. He soon plans to work on setting up his amazing "Startup" idea that will one day revolutionize how small/micro businesses work, and publishing a few books, and wants to further travel other continents. I know a lot of people, myself included, that always say they want to do something out of the box and amazing before they die. Very few of us will actually live up to those words. This post does not do justice to how unique, and awesome this man is.
