As ‪#‎artists‬ we make sacrifices. When we feel the ‪#‎creative‬ "flow" it's hard to eat, sleep, do anything but try to perpetuate that feeling. It's then that sometimes we let it take over aspects of our lives. A couple years ago I had found some "success" in my career but what I gave up in that dedication to my craft was my ‪#‎health‬ and ‪#‎well‬ being. I was creating great ‪#‎art‬ but ate poorly, slept poorly and lived quite the sedentary ‪#‎lifestyle‬ blaming everything but myself. So eventually I realized what's the point of creating art if you can't stick around to make more. So I took matters into my own hands and wanted to not just ‪#‎diet‬ but make a full lifestyle change. It was hard at first but I sought ‪#‎inspiration‬ from others. I'm forever grateful for my family and friends for their support for eventually losing more than 50 lbs and gaining my life back thru ‪#‎sport‬ and ‪#‎fitness‬. One of my greatest inspirations was Dwayne The Rock Johnson. I would chk his feeds all the time to stay ‪#‎motivated‬! Cuz he was a friggin ‪#‎beast‬ and beloved for his larger than life personality that transcended just wrestling. But I think what I eventually learned more through his struggle ( yah he has a connection to ‪#‎yyc‬ as an ex stampeder but sadly a terrible experience) was that in addition to ‪#‎bodybuilding‬, he placed ‪#‎character‬ building as an equal if not more important ‪#‎priority‬. There is still a long journey ahead but knowing he's got our backs! I got his too! So I created this piece for him! Ive been using the ‪#‎rockclock‬ to schedule my workouts and wakeup time and this image is how I imagine him waking us up in the morning!! It's ‪#‎ROCKTIME‬ !! ‪#‎ruleyourself‬ ‪#‎rockproject‬ #fitness‪#‎healthy‬ ‪#‎soomuchcod‬ ‪#‎icon‬ ‪#‎wakeupcall‬ ‪#‎bloodsweatandrespect‬‪#‎underarmour‬ ‪#‎ironparadise‬ ‪#‎respectthejourney‬
