...to edit all the shit I film!
I think I film less then 10% of the stuff I do. And I don't have the time to edit it.
Why? Because I do a lot of stuff...
Take the last 24 hours:
- Yesterday afternoon I got in the water SUP surfing at 1000 peaks around 6pm and I got out around 9pm. The full moon rose at 7pm and it was just bloddy gorgeous. The first forerunners of the new south swell were hitting. We're talking 2 footers of 20 seconds period... soooo clean!
Going right, I was going straight into the moonlight... one of those things that either you've done it or there's no way I can describe it.
- allright, this morning I had some errands/work to do
- this afternoon I sailed Hookipa on the longboard. I was testing the new camera mount and it worked just great for sailing too... oh, wait! I better check the clips first...
Well, that's the point!
I can't, because I'm leaving in 5 minutes to go standup surf with the full moon again, this time with a bunch of friends.
Honestly, I don't know anybody who has a better life than me. You guys can try to suggest me someone, but trust me... it's going to be hard one!
See ya later!!!
PS. Thanks to Nelisblog for the first comment. Here's a reply/clarification.
Travelling is great, but life is a limited amount of time. It's a matter of trying not to waste it and use it the way that makes you happy.
In my world my highest priority is riding waves. If I wanted to travel more, guess what I would do?...
I would travel more!
So, if Matt likes travelling, looks like he's doing pretty good.
In the end, mine was a provocative question for all the blog readers:
Are you guys having the lives you would like to have?
Can you guys say too: "I don't know anybody who has a better life than me"?
Yes? Good job!
No? Time to start doing something about it!
PPS. Here's another reply to a comment, that I thought about posting here.
thanks for the sentence "Where can I study, learn, and practice, to be more like you?"... it makes me feel very Dalai Lama...
Anyway, my tip is: question everything.
Question the messages that this society gives you. Question the "values" that the people around you have. Even question what your parents tell you!
We live in an world where the perception of what is good for us has been incredibly distorted by more than 2000 years of what we call "civilization".
Dogs are not civilized. Dogs don't worry about tomorrow. Dogs don't commit suicide. Dogs are waaaay happier than humans.
Why? 'Cause when they feel like barking at the moon, you know what they do? The bark at the moon.
Just act like a dog and do what you feel like doing...
Well, at this point I'm going to open a thread about this kind-of-philosophical topic on my forum, so that the discussion can go on indefinitely. You'll find it here.
