Slow Death Long Body Tee
The new “Slow Death” Tee is your wearable reminder that your life is your own story to write, the pen is in your hands and the clock is tickin’. Read on to catch the heart of this piece and what a “Slow Death” means to us. Wear it out.
He who becomes the slave of habit,
who follows the same routes every day,
who never changes pace,
who does not risk and change the color of his clothes,
who does not speak and does not experience,
He who shuns passion,
who prefers black on white,
dotting ones "i’s" rather than a bundle of emotions, the kind that make your eyes glimmer,
that turn a yawn into a smile,
that make the heart pound in the face of mistakes and feelings,
He who does not turn things topsy-turvy,
who is unhappy at work,
who does not risk certainty for uncertainty,
to thus follow a dream,
those who do not forego sound advice at least once in their lives,
He who does not travel, who does not read,
who does not listen to music,
who does not find grace in himself,
she who does not find grace in herself,
He who slowly destroys his own self-esteem,
who does not allow himself to be helped,
who spends days on end complaining about his own bad luck, about the rain that never stops,
He who abandons a project before starting it, who fails to ask questions on subjects he doesn't know, he or she who don't reply when they are asked something they do know,
Let's try and avoid death in small doses,
reminding oneself that being alive requires an effort far greater than the simple fact of breathing.
Only a burning patience will lead
to the attainment of a splendid happiness.
This is a poem by Brazilian writer and journalist, Martha Medeiros. We posted it in a blog on May 19th, 2019 as our best explanation of what the "Don't Die" part of GFDD means to us.
Three years later it's still our most shared, most read blog post and we thought we'd share its content with you today. We hope you take some time this week with each line and decide how it challenges your story.
The goal, for us, is not a slow life or a swift death - it's to live the longest, "fastest" life with as few dead moments as possible.
Are there any slow deaths you are allowing in your life?
What would it mean or look like to replace those moments with more LIFE?
"It's not the mountain that gets you, it's the rock in your shoe."
Regular tee is 60/40 combed ringspun cotton/polyester
Long Body version is 100% Cotton
Love the shirt design and cut, feels nice and fits well. My only gripe is it isn't very durable. Literally the first time I wore it. I ended up with two small holes in it
Love all the new shorts I got
Deval is pretty awesome. Sticks well, sturdy and looks swell. I think I gained an extra life with it.
Risk Happy Hoodie
Suuuuper soft, good weight, and comfortable. Plus the graphics are great quality. 10/10
Great shirt great quality. Wore it to street vibrations last weekend and got a lot of compliments.
Great coffee mugs. Customer service was excellent when one arrived chipped. Great company, great products!
I received my “I love motorcycles” hat from Go Fast Don’t Die a little over a week ago, and since then everything in my life has changed. After putting this hat on, I noticed I had gained 20 pounds of muscle and lost my beer belly immediately. The wife salivates over my six pack, and I’ve gone from struggling to bench 225 to repping out 25 reps, no sweat. Might try out for the NFL. If George Washington had this hat, we would have skipped the whole Revolutionary War and gone straight to opening up a can of whoop-ass at Yorktown, promptly sending those tea obsessed Brits back across the pond to toil over their lands and titles, and all while looking stylish as HELL. Idk if King Leonidas of Sparta would be intimidated by this hat, necessarily, but I wouldn’t rule it out. If you’re wondering if you should buy one, the real question is only how many should you buy immediately.
Love the message on the shirt, hence the purchase, but the material is so awesome. One of my most comfortable shirts!
I’ve worn it when I ride this spring. It’s stylish and comfortable and will be buying a few more!
Slow Death Tee
Nice shirt. I like the quality and fit.
Item came as described.
Shipping is very slow tho. They do State the shipping dates . So you will have to be patient when you order.
Quality product. Cozy but not bulky. Compliments and laughs from passersby. Five stars.
Great fit and great quality
I was in a rollover truck accident in April and was in a coma for 2 months. Just found my "Went Fast, Didn't Die" t-shirt all shredded in a pile of the wreckage stuff 2 weeks ago! Was devastated to wonder what happened to my favorite shirt. Had to get another!!! 💪🏁👍⚡️😎
