I gotta say something that I was meditating over while I was riding home just now. @mikevallely I need to thank you man. I know I've done it a few times but I need to thank you for the #streetplantbattalion and it's strong, positive, supportive community. Everyone is stretched so far from each other but we all motivate each other and push each other to enjoy what we're doing. It has carried me through times where I felt unmotivated and uninspired. By your example this community grows with love. Thank you for that and thank you for the joy you've given me through skateboarding. 📷: @robxwallace
@fustoop is literally one of my favorite skaters of all time. Dude gets me crazy hyped to search out different obstacles and skate what may not seem skateable. Even if I dont win I still plan on buying his #trollmodel but hey maybe Christmas can come early 🎅 #tfschristmascomplete
#biketoworkday was super enjoyable today. The weather was right, the music was right (thank you @enduranceelite ) and I was riding to a job that I'm happy at. One year ago I left a job that mentally broke me down. It literally took a piece away from me and I found myself no longer happy. No amount of money is worth dealing with mental abuse nor physical abuse. Jobs can be hard and work can be hard but not abusive. The physical aspects of my old job were no problem but I was monitored 24/7, had to log every move I made and how long it took me. I was questioned constantly, I wasn't allowed in the office of the building I brought record sales numbers in just a year before that. It was a personal attack from a corporate hound who couldn't take the fact that I was accomplishing things in a way that was new and different to what she had been doing. I left that job not having a lead or an upcoming prospect. I left blindly for the sake of my own sanity and the relationship with my family. God gave me Poseidon Bikes, first as a generous sponsor but now I am approaching a year as an employee. I am happy now. I get to work in an industry I truly love, I get to be creative, and I get to help people enjoy the same thing I enjoy so much. What a year can do for a person. Things can get better, it may not be perfect but if you're happy you're doing it right.
Thank you @cruzanddestroy@cruceroskates for this rad shirt and stickers! Skating my local curb is where I feel at home the most these days. Well other than my actual home lol. Thank you for doing what you are doing and giving us some rad designs to wear and enjoy.
