This post is dedicated to Nicky Hayden, 1981-2017. Nicky was an American motorcycle racer who died on Monday, May 22nd after been hit by a car while bicycling couple of days earlier. He won the world championship 2006. A nicer person was hard to find, always positive and made the best out of every situation. He never seemed to complain. I met him briefly in Japan 2013 where I received his autograph. He was my favorite rider, it was shocking to hear about his passing, way too early. My deepest condolences to his family and dear friends.
Nicky died at age 35. Most of us thinking, yeah, I'll be around to about 85. Nothing is for sure, remember that.Therfore it's preferable not to live life, your current one as is a dress-herersal for the real one. It's not! You have one shot and its up to you to make the best out of it. Everyones circumstances are different and some have it much harder than others, that's for sure. I remember once Arnold Schwarzenegger said he understood this later in life. He thought once that everyone could just pull them self up by their bootstraps. As Arnold said it isn't easy if you live in poverty without out any support and good role models.
Remember that everything could end tomorrow or when your 98. You don't know, so, live the best you can. Respect family, friends and strangers!
Take care of your self and others!
