I'm David Eriksson, and I have an obsession for movement.
I currently live in Sweden, but I'd rather say I'm a citizen of the world. I do not like compartmentalization. Swedish, British, American..? We're all human beings living on the planet Tellus, no? We so often forget we are all human first, why this need to seperate everything?
I never understood why people have this need to put a label on their forehead. "I'm a vegan", "I'm a Crossfitter" or "I'm a democrat".. It gets even worse when we begin defining ourself in opposition to others. We are all one.
The only thing I'm comfortable defining myself as is a human being. My mission is to improve myself as a human, to become the best ME I can. The tools I utilize to accomplish that is irrelevant; I will use whatever works, and discard that which does not.
This is why I love movement; It's wide enough. I'm not limited to one thing. It's pragmatic, I can pick & choose what I enjoy & benefit from without ever having to define myself as anything other than a human. I'm a generalist, not a specialist.

I hate empty words. If you say you're gonna do something, I fully expect that you are gonna do it. I have to much respect for you, and myself, to make empty promises. I practice what I preach, and I do not make empty promises. Everything I write & say is from my heart, it's something I'm fully prepared to back up with actions.
Of course, all of these words are meaningless without action. Saying I will back up my words is not enough. That's why I will stop writing now and go practice what I preac
