Time passes us by.........

.......faster and faster as we get older.

When we are children, we have so much to look forward to. It seems like the next day, whether it be for our trip to Chuck E. Cheese or wherever it may be, takes goddamn forever. I remember Christmas or the month prior feeling like an eternity - then something happened; my youth left me and I didn't even realize it until it was gone.

Yeah, okay, this is random, but I see Luke kicking dudes asses, looking good doing it and I often wonder what would have happened if I wouldn't have taken breaks in training? Could that have been me? Is it too late. Jason and I talked about it - its a young dudes game. Everything is a young dudes game. Wasting fucking time in bands or wasting years on broads has gotten me to a point in my life to where it may be too late.

Is it fucking time to pack this shit up and head off into the sunset? Will I always be a workin' stiff, toiling in a career that I have yet to choose?

I think back and since 2000 my life has been a blur. What the fuck have I done? I now realize that SEVEN big years have passed and I am just getting my first sleeve done - the one I wanted probably ten years ago. Maybe had I not wasted my time I would have realized how fast my life was passing me by.

I guess it just boils down to the fact that one day you wake up and realize that your life has changed and you didn't pay attention.

I guess I should pay more attention.

It's never too late. Some people never wake up. Take what you want and harm none. The world will yeild up its treasures but only to the brave.

It's never too late to do anything and it is not a young kids world.I've learned some things in my 37 years on earth and the most important is you are only as old as you act or feel.I will at any time throw down on a bike with any of them ,we played in the bands we chased the chicks through thick and thin we enjoyed what life had to offer.Never was it a waste or loss of time my brother.Only a way to learn sometimes a hard way some times an easy way ,Never regret the past .Imbrace it because it has alot to offer.

Time does pass by very quickly, without you even noticing all the things you didn't do or should've done. That's why they say hindsight is 20/20. Early thirties is still very young Mr. Cliff, nothing has passed you by except perhaps the naive feeling you used to possess that everything was possible. Now you have to dedicate, commit and achieve. Not ever an easy thing to do, but the human body is an amazing machine. Feed it and train it right and you could certainly kick some super duper martial arts ass. And that's all I have to say about that.

Also, while I am here and saying things. There is no such thing as wasting time with bands or broads. Each one has it's role in who you are today, and I don't think I would like you any different than exactly who you are right now.

Post pictures of your new sleeve.
