While it's good to work toward your goals, don't you feel like constantly chasing things makes you run all the time and not "enjoy the moment"? What if, for example, while you are in a country and you think "Hmm, I really would like to stay here longer ..." I mean a real feeling, not a whim?
You have many goals and you are doing current things to work towards them, but life gives you new and unexpected situations that change directions and divert your path; Literally when you walk you find side streets that are worth it, trying to listen to the surprises that arise, and enjoy each day without thinking about the end of the destination.
Like I said, great question. The short answer in my case is yes, from time to time I would like to stay longer somewhere. I feel like this every time I travel. I'm not sure what to expect from the sites, so I don't plan on staying much longer than 7 days, but then they turn out to be one of my favorite places in the world and I want to extend my stay until I become an expert local guide for that city.
For example, before visiting Montreal, I felt that I had already seen enough of the world and it wouldn't be that different. (It's not always popular to say so, but in various regions of the world, many of the locations are quite similar.) However, Montreal is a magical place and so much fun at the same time. The city has its own life that may sound strange but is as real as its language and delicious French food.
Besides being a city full of opportunities of all kinds, this destination is the meeting point of many cultures. Visiting Montreal means seeing, smelling, tasting and listening to many corners of the world. You can listen to music (mainly jazz) in any of its streets and enjoy a night of spectacular dance in the Latin Quarter , after a good drink in the bars of Boulevard St-Laurent .
«The important thing is not to travel to go anywhere, it is to travel to move.
Get out of your comfort zone. »
I travel to travel. I like the process of going from one place to another. I like airports, buses, shuttles, hotel rooms, trains, subways… and I like putting the pieces of the puzzle together: how can I get three different tickets in a short space of time? How can I apply for visas for Burundi and Cameroon simultaneously? Will I have enough time for a trip to Turkey before traveling to Canada?
Lately, there are many pieces within the puzzle that make up a trip: PCR, Vaccination Certificate, Visa, Stay Form, etc. And, of course, the fact that what works for some does not work for others. But what defines whether any of us are successful in enjoying the moment is not necessarily related to geography.
Valuing life is generally more of an internal decision than a response to external circumstances. If you've ever been happy during a stressful time at work or unhappy on vacation, you understand how it works.
So, in that sense, it's better to find a way to enjoy all you can at any given moment, even if your final destination changes and you fall in love with the city that would be your bridge!
There are many lives to live and the idea of knowing them is what moves us, the one that encourages us to let go. The idea of the unexpected, the unknown makes us feel strong and invincible. It is that drop that broke the camel's back that gave you the impulse to change, don't waste it, keep going because there is always another life to live, other people to know, another world to learn.
We are born with the idea that we have a life and as such it must be perfected to reach the climax of well-being that society imposes on us: a good house, car, work, family, etc. But have you ever asked yourself, why does it have to be one? Many lives can be lived in one life because every time you finish a story you start over from scratch.
You can be reborn in a different city, speak another language and have another profession. This is called emigration, but society also sees it as something strange when you do it several times, and they call you crazy, adventurous or simply misfit.
I see life as albatrosses. These wonderful birds all that is big about their wings, they are faithful to them. Albatrosses are seabirds of long distances, they are the globetrotters par excellence. Although the vital strategies of these seabirds (very long development cycle, delayed sexual maturity, low fertility, etc.) make them extremely vulnerable to these threats both at sea and on land, they always continue the journey.
Although albatrosses mate for life, they can find new partners if necessary, for example if they outlive their first mate. The behavior of albatrosses, which delay the time of breeding, makes them eternal travelers in search of that accompaniment or "love" that lasts for a lifetime, and what a life: albatrosses live about 50 years.
Life is not just one, because whenever you have the opportunity to change and start from scratch you start living another life. That is why you have to live many lives and fly as far as you can reach them ! .
El estoicismo es una corriente filosófica de la antigua Grecia que defiende la armonía entre la naturaleza y las necesidades humanas para el logro de la felicidad y la sabiduría, prescindiendo de las cosas superfluas. El estoicismo es una enseñanza sobre la virtud, la tolerancia y el autocontrol ya que se define como estoico a alguien que permanece tranquilo bajo presión y evita los extremos emocionales.
We are part of a whole and everything that happens around us works under the principle of cause and effect. Stoic philosophy raises the problem that we tend to seek pleasure in external things that condition and subdue us and, on the contrary, everything we need to be happy is hidden within us. When we complain, we take the responsibility outwards and we always tend to blame instead of recognizing our individual responsibility and our weaknesses, and with this it is only possible to expand the discomfort and promote victimhood.
This philosophy proposes us to discover ourselves and build from within a solid structure to stand upright in the face of life's vicissitudes, overcome irrational fears and develop our strength and courage to fight our way through adversity, make clear decisions and have self-control and control at all times. . It is about improving ourselves in times of difficulty and knowing that inner strength is exercised and comes to light in difficult times.

AMOR FATI/ AMOR AL DESTINO/ AMOR A LOS HECHOS
Acepta la adversidad como parte de tu camino, prepárate para el peor escenario. Cada vez que tomes una decisión visualiza lo peor que te puede pasar si no sale como tu quisieras, esto no tiene nada que ver con pesimismo, se trata de contemplar todas las posibilidades lo cual nos permite crear un plan de contingencias y estar mejor preparados.
It is having a proactive and expansive attitude, that prior preparation makes the unbearable more bearable since the only thing that cannot be survived is death. We must also respect each one in their processes because pity and compassion do not lead to anything, what we must do is accompany them and inspire them with our example.
"The sufferings do not derive from the events of our life but from our judgment on it"
Focus on your internal control. Focus your attention only on what is up to you and you can control. Your attitude, your thoughts, your behavior and your words, this is achieved through attention.
"You become what you pay attention to"
Treat obstacles with emotional detachment. This is not about getting cold but about turning the problem into a challenge. We tend to see problems as something external that comes to harm us and that makes us victims or prey, but if we see it as a challenge or something that is our individual responsibility, it will allow us to gather our internal and external resources, prepare us better and develop tolerance and tolerance. empathy. It is that resilience that helps us overcome the difficulties that come our way with a stoic posture that keeps us on our feet and does not let our morale and spirit disintegrate.
"There is no one less fortunate than the one whom adversity forgets, because he never has the opportunity to test himself"
MEMENTO MORI/ RECUERDA QUE VAS A MORIR
Esta conciencia de la muerte no es para hundirnos sino para partir de este análisis, darle un giro positivo a nuestra vida y aprovechar bien el tiempo que es tan valioso, recordar lo que verdaderamente importa que es buscar la simplicidad de las cosas, la risa, el amor y el gozo que la vida nos brinda en cada momento. Es no postergar las cosas, es disfrutar de nuestros seres queridos, es tratarnos con generosidad y respeto, practicar el agradecimiento y dejar un legado. Es hacer que el haber pasado por la vida tenga sentido y valga la pena.

Getting rich is not only having a lot of money, it is also making money work for you, it is having the financial freedom that time allows you. A great way to make money work is through trading.
Trading is characterized by demanding concentration, emotional control, patience and discipline . This can be learned and trained, although it does not allow great dislocations. It has the beneficial side effect that, little by little, you are getting to know yourself more and more.
Although you can exercise live on the parquet, in stock rooms, the most usual is operate through a computer . This brings the disadvantage that it becomes a solitary journey. Of course, if we feel like, we can operate in pajamas or on the beach contemplating the wonderful sunset of sunset.
The TRADING is a great trick in your favor, since you only need an Internet connection to operate, so we can do it in the house, or on vacation. This, which may seem nonsense, is immensely useful to achieve financial freedom that we pursue.
Although perhaps the most exclusive advantage of trading against business, real estate or ideas, it is the hour adaptability . This does, among other things, absolutely compatible with daily work, have the schedule you have.
Trading is a very flexible alternative . We can configure it custom, learn, train and debug until you find the method that best suits our life. Financial independence begins by making money from multiple ways to start acquiring assets. Trading is an alternative to achieve it as long as our mind is prepared to accept it.
In summary: Trading is the mix of financial science and the psychological component, therefore if you develop your mind you will enjoy your economic freedom!
Traveling is more than a word and traveling alone is more than a lonely road. Traveling has become a real and exciting relationship that I never want to part with. I travel with me because it is the way to tell the world: I am free to dream and fight for my dreams! Our goal in life is to be happy. I never travel alone… I am always with myself and my dreams!
I travel alone because I learned that happiness is in being free, in understanding that you don't need anyone other than yourself to be the woman you dreamed of; free and authentic. Because it serves to adjust the imagination to reality and to see things as they are, instead of thinking how they will be. I am filled with wonderful people along the way and I feel like the world is smaller and more achievable.
In a moment of the trip I forgot and healed; I managed to put my fears aside. These experiences let me know how far I can go and why they have allowed me to meet wonderful people, why I feel part of the whole when I do it, because it makes me realize that only one is a multitude, and suddenly the whole of humanity becomes a family.
I learned to know myself and to share time with me! Getting lost is an adventure, I developed a sense of alertness and location. It is a way of showing that it is worth taking the risk and verifying that nothing can go wrong. The magic of sharing what you are living is what gives life to each trip, it is what drives you to go further, that is the magic of traveling alone, living life your way and knowing that you are doing the right thing, not for the world if not for yourself.
I travel alone to break the stereotypes that the world instills in us, so I can connect with my essence and recognize myself. In this way I can strengthen myself in any adversity, get out of my comfort zone, expand the horizons of the world and of life. Traveling introduces a stimulus in my intellectual capacities, makes me more creative and develops my social and emotional skills.
The best thing happens when you are out of your comfort zone, get the most out of you and learn from yourself and others every day!
Es increíble reconocer que nacemos sabiendo que algún día vamos a morir pero no estamos preparados para eso y vivimos como si nunca fuéramos a irnos. Cuando perdemos a un ser querido el dolor y el impacto es profundo, sentimos que se pierde una parte de nosotros, alguien que con su amor alimentaba nuestra alma, que nos hacía sentir protegidos. Existen conexiones y sentimientos muy fuertes con nuestros seres amados y ese vacío es imposible de reemplazar pero siempre podemos hacer algo para paliar la pérdida.
PAIN IS INEVITABLE BUT SUFFERING IS OPTIONAL.
We have to get up and continue because life has more plans for us because our path continues and there are more people and goals awaiting us, we can use the pain of loss to rebound and show ourselves that we can continue regardless. There is a plan for everyone and the true meaning of being human is to live, find yourself and be happy. Let's look from a broader perspective: If unfortunately we have lost a loved one, at the same time we always have something good left, the things we learned with him remain, the people who unite us with him and the dreams that remained to be fulfilled to enjoy them with him, then we have an obligation to move forward.
It is very sad indeed, but what use is too much sadness? So much sadness and prayer will not bring him back, we must focus on satisfying the desires of the loved one and think about how he would like to see us.
We can strengthen ourselves and turn pain into a lever to develop the will. Replace sadness with inner strength and determination, then even if one part of you feels pain, the other will generate more will to continue and fulfill your wishes.
In some strange or magical way, if we are useful and happy, that person who left us will also be happy, he will rest in peace, or at least we will have a clear conscience that we honor him even after he has left. It is also good to think that we are in essence more than matter. There is something else that cannot be seen, that cannot be felt but that is felt with the heart.
"We are not human beings living a spiritual experience, we are spiritual beings living a human experience".
Have you ever thought about leaving everything for love , starting from scratch? Traveling to another continent because you had fallen in love? Or have you already done it? If so, you know what I'm talking about.
If there is something capable of connecting two people thousands of miles apart, it is LOVE . It is curious that two souls find themselves traveling, in places they do not belong to and that it is then when they connect.
That precise moment that serves to light the unstoppable fuse that sets everything in motion: a new trip, a business, a change of country, a vital project, children in another hemisphere ... Because there are people who when they come together create magnificent things, motivating each other and making creativity fly.
Let's fall in love! Let's discover what is behind those sensations that make magic emerge, the spark of life .
Love between two people who belong to different countries enhances creativity, because it awakens your curiosity to learn another language to understand it and communicate your feelings. You want to know their environment and their culture to know what that person likes, what motivates them to smile and function every day. Exploring your field of work opens your mind to innovate in other areas and discover that perhaps you are made for that too.
The ability to generate new ideas towards undertaking a different path, raises your self-esteem that will allow you to take the necessary risk to boost your life, believe in yourself ,believe in your potential. The multiculturalism that this love gives you stimulates the richness of your spirit and your mind because learning will be infinitely greater in the opportunities that we will have to know other religions in depth, adaptive wealth to different social contexts, diverse traditions ... leading us to greater tolerance, respect and flexibility .
With creativity we arrive at solutions that allow us to adapt to the context that is constantly changing; When having a partner from another country, motivation plays an important role, which makes us approach that unknown culture with greater interest and soak up it. Although it also depends on the open-mindedness that we have. The greater the openness to the experience, the more stimulation, so there could be the possibility of having greater creative capacities.
The relationship between two people of different cultures is a real mental adventure!
We live in a culture of avoidance (“from oneself and from social problems”) and alienation (“we care so much about something that we withdraw, we become alien, to ourselves"); for this reason we especially need to "travel within ourselves." For this journey - risky and inclusive, full of fears and distractions - we need to know the map with which to place ourselves in our psychological, spiritual territory, etc. In addition, we will need guides, light luggage, learn to rest and talk along the way ...
When we undertake a trip (for example during the vacation period) we often only change the scenery, the landscape, the culture, but we do not change ourselves. Despite the fact that everything induces us to change our thoughts and way of living, the reality is that psychological immobility remains intact when we return home. The vacation trip remains in pleasant memories and photographs, while our mind returns to the everyday, to the known, without risks or changes that alter our « false stability «.
Because to truly live we need to travel within ourselves . Attend with amazement our discontinuous continuity, our identity that is recreated through personal and social growth after that trip. We need to continually change in order to truly dialogue with the environment from there, to live authentically our steps along the different paths of life.
Because " everything flows ". Because people, places, situations change your life constantly. You cannot stop the river of your life, your life is born from its source, it follows its course and if you want to be aware you have to flow with it without being scared by the rapids or waterfalls, knowing how to rest in its backwaters, feed its ditches, receive its tributaries and head with a serene consciousness towards the sea. You should not anchor yourself in any idea, person, situation, experience, that prevents you from flowing, navigating, opening yourself to the life that you do and the life that makes you.
Change is not about change, for fashion. Compulsive change also takes you away from yourself. Traveling inside yourself is looking for the identity that will allow you to say your authentic word to life. It is the way to the truth about yourself. It is when you integrate, unify, come and go from the outside in and from the inside out and when the healthiest part of you guides you. You flow freely with all the opportunities and scenarios that life offers you to change or modify your steps even if they even mark another side of the path.
It is not an easy trip and being risky causes a lot of fear, proof of this are the very few people who undertake it. Most of humanity does not dare to go to the bottom of this journey to the interior of oneself, because we avoid all kinds of pain that can cause us to become aware of what we are. Fear blocks us from the dark areas that we may have but also the knowledge of the truth and the discovery of inner peace.
Fear leads us to settle in a quality, anchor ourselves in an idea or an ideology and then stop being nomads of our internal world to become superficially sedentary. It evades us from the narrow path that will allow us to achieve our goals.
But: before and after walking, start the journey without fear into yourself!
