It usually takes place on the main crossroad of the village which is believed to be the zero spot of the balance.

Embrace The Journey - Not A #

We've all heard time and time again to, "Embrace The Journey" and "Trust The Process". If you truly live your life by these words everyday, you'll know what they really mean. For Tony Jakstis, it's always about being optimistic, supportive and truly embracing the journey regardless of all the set backs and failures. Coming from welfare, it's not easy to make your dreams come true when there's a lot of people who doubt you. As an aspiring actor with fame during his early teens, a multi-million dollar business owner and the founder of a non-profit centered around at-risk youth after having his sister nearly taken away from a car accident, Tony's journey has been a struggle...and it's only beginning. This is his story... "Embrace The Journey - Not A #"
