slowing the roll…

all i have been thinking about these days is how much less i have been skateboarding… i haven’t lost the love for it or anything like that, but i realized that the less i do it the more i appreciate it… i can physically still go and skate everyday… i wake up sore every morning after i skate, but i have overcome thinking that it is a shitty feeling… it actually feels great.. knowing that i destroyed myself doing something i love…

i was chatting with a friend the other day and we were bitching to each other about how we feel like posers… we feel like because we don’t skate every damn day that we are not skateboarders… it is a shitty feeling, but you get older and you realize that it is not true… just because you took a day off to work and take care of life bullshit does not make you any less of a skateboarder… just because you found other hobbies you enjoy doesn’t make you any less of a skateboarder… part of skateboarding is exploring the world on the daily… so let yourself go and be free… you’ve learned that from your skateboard.

skateboarding is ingrained into your soul after 15+ years of it… i put skateboarding aside once before in my life and that was a mistake… once you do it, learn it, understand it, and commit to it, it is a part of you… so taking a few days off here and there doesn’t mean i don’t like it as much or don’t need to do it as much (i would do it all day everyday if i could)… i still pick up where i left off and i continue to progress… the time away gives my brain more opportunity to expand… there are tricks out there i still want/need to learn… being away from the board gives me a bit of a clean slate every time i get back on…

so i guess you can say i am slowing my roll these days… i am sure i will revert back to shredding more often, but for now all is good… i feel fresh and ready every session…

shred on…

peace and noLove…
