Day 169 of 365

AHH day 169 is that like a 69 but with 1 extra person....bad joke uhhh sorry I'll get started. 

"They say" 

Who the fuck is "they" because I'm starting to believe that whenever I say "they say" it's ust an excuse for me to not do something.  This week I am getting back to something I have been doing for the past two years.  Something I stopped doing 6 months ago. A lot of good was happening in my life because of this.  I was getting ahead of my goals, chores, bills etc. 

My alarm is again set to 5:30am 

Not too difficult a small adjustment.   The hard part is getting to bed on time.  Right now I'm aiming for 10pm but so far I have gone to bed around 12:30 every night.  I'm starting to get tired earlier and I love it.  I wake up at 5:30 and by 12 o'clock all of my busy work is done for the day, leaving me with time to shoot photos, plan photo shoots, skate, read and whatever else I want to do.  

Last summer I was doing the same thing.  I would skate from 6am to 7am, go shower, go to the coffee shop, write, then send emails.  I would start my days at 9. It was intoxicating.  I would be skating at 6am and think to myself is this real life, am I actually an adult or a kid in a big body.  Yeah I know this may end when I have kids but just wait till they turn 5....Daddy's going to wake their asses up at 5am and bring them to the skatepark for some morning exercise. 

The moral of this story is there are no excuses not to do what you love every single goddamn day of your life.  If you want it bad enough you'll make it happen, even if that means waking up at 5:30 on your off day.
