This week we go to Dearborn, Michigan with Majdy to hear his incredible story...

I met Majdy when Serge was on his second break down, in Kalispell, Montana. We ended up staying at a 4 room hostel in downtown Kalispell where Majdy happened to be staying as well.

We struck up a conversation on our way in and after settling Majdy brought out some cherries to share and chat. We instantly connected. Majdy has an old soul. He is incredibly wise and has so much insight to give.

The next morning before we picked up Serge, Majdy and I ended up having an incredibly deep two hour conversation, sharing tears, laughter, stories and advice. We had a massive connection. I know we ended up there so that we could link up.

Majdy is going to do amazing things in this world. It was really cool to meet him on his first ever big trip and experience what that was like for him.

Incredibly happy to know Majdy...

Tell me a story that shaped your life…

- A story that shaped my life...When I was around 5 years old and my father gave us a Nintendo 64 and turning it on for the first time. Seeing the colors blaze all over the screen and feel the passion in my heart glow for the first time as if I just came alive.

Tell me a story that almost ruined your life… 

- A story that almost ruined my life, I was around 18 years old. I thought I was confident with what I wanted in my life, to become a peace officer in the military to live and serve others in hopes of finding peace within myself and to use that to validate my existence while traveling the world. At the time I was also in love with an ex-girlfriend that I wanted to see a future with since she was one of the people at the time who made me feel welcomed. Shortly after I realized the conflicts that arise in my personal life, in my career and within myself. I've had disagreements with my father and mother since they didn't want me going off signing my death wish is that I'm one of only two sons.

Yet I was the only son they were hoping to see grow into someone successful. Then others in my life were telling me I would be selfish if I ran off to chase something that would end up killing me since they would be suffering more then myself when I'm dead. I understood both of these points with great empathy but I always asked "How can I become someone great if I don't understand who this someone (me) is?". Shortly after these started piling in my mind as well as my ex-girlfriend of 2 years cheating on me. That completely broke me and my love and passion for law for the next few months I felt the world around me going grey and it was hard to visualize color. I felt like a slave that was obeying a bunch of commands that went in my mind endlessly on repeat "wake up, go to school, go to work". The look in my eyes was intense yet at the same time crying for help because it was a drought. No one was there to help.... within the coming weeks, I resigned from my short career in law enforcement as a cadet and contemplating dropping out of school. A few months later I was 100 pounds heavier and out of shape. Ended up taking an odd security job that would help me fill a void in my life but it wasn't enough. I'd sit in a parking lot for 8 hours a day in one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in sub-zero temperature making 10 bucks an hour. When I look at it now I'd think I'm nuts but back then I was just mindless and in my mind all day I was just thinking... thinking what life would become.

Shortly after I got moved to a corporate environment, excited yet still suffering from the pain, and throughout this time while working this gig I relied on my only comfort and mechanism which was food. Unhealthy eating habits that would feel "high" at the moment but little did I know it was destroying my body. One day I noticed it was hard t
