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
Soft, comfortable & true to size. Also a great reminder to not let fear hold you back…
great tee as with all of my previous ones I have ordered from GFDD. Athletic fit and soft fabric.
Best material, best fit. Best damn message 🤘🏼
This is the second order I've placed with GFDD, all for t-shirts. The quality is great as the ones I've previously ordered are still going strong. I wear them on the motorcycle often so they take a beating. I will absolutely be back for more!
Have ya ever had that one T-shirt, that one sweatshirt or even that one pair of jeans that fits just the way you like? THE one that fits so good you just wanna wear it everyday because it still fits just how you like, even after multiple wears and washes? That's my Risk Happy sweatshirt. It's THE one ❤️
We love all the shirts we’ve purchased from GFDD. Great quality, super soft.
Really nice and confortable tshirt, cool design
Smile More Checkerboard Hat
Bought this shirt and a few others. All in the same size (XL) as I was thinking it would be oversized on me according to the size chart. All shirts for different and are smaller than expected fits more like other basic Ts in a medium. Otherwise love the shirts and grahics.
Love this hat! Made by Zephyr. Same brand as my other every day wear hat. I’d buy it again for sure! Must have if you love being on two wheels. GFDD
Got these stickers for my fiancé with the DWDY hoodie as his birthday gift and he LOVES them! Great quality and the designs are fantastic. Keep it up, guys!
I'm a motorcycle rider and pilot in the military and wear it on my flight suit, everyone I work with loves it!! Good quality, great Velcro.
Looks dope, exactly what I expected. Great communication throughout the whole transaction. Highly recommend GFDD.
