Every once in a while you see others passionately pursuing their craft and it lights a fire under your butt!
watched a documentary this weekend on Netflix called the Bones Brigade. If you enjoy skating, it's a no brainer. If you enjoy training and pushing yourself to be the best you can be, I think you'll enjoy it. If you want to see passion and character development, this is a must watch. Many of the top name in skating are viewed from kids to modern day. It focuses on a group of kids who skated just to skate. When no one made money pursuing the dream...they just trained...skated...ups and downs...trained.
Unlike many of the former guard, they stayed away from drugs. Stayed away from alcohol. They trained...they quit...and they trained again
I have stepped up my kihon and been going back through my notes with renewed vigor...because I am passionate about Ninpo!
I have been spending long hours on the board pushing my turns...and getting schooled...if you're not falling, you're not trying.
I have been fortunate to purse many things in my life with passion. I have had the luxury to reinvent myself many times. I have know and loved some amazing people...passionate people. Your inspiration and the "nudge" can come from anywhere. If you all quit and pursue skating, I'm happy to have helped steer you in that direction. If just one of you watches this film and makes an effort to get to class and train with abandonment, I would be thrilled.
Pursue you passion. Waiting another day wastes another day. It's your legacy...do it now!
