There are those movies that change your life. That after viewing you see things completely differently. This is one of those documentaries. My mother recommended this movie to me. She said everyone should see this movie. I didn’t realize until I was into it and saw Chris Malloy that it was a Malloys film. As in the same Malloys that film with Jack Johnson, that the soundtrack that is now downloaded and playing is from Brushfire Records. As if all the surfing didn’t give it away point blank.
Regardless, here is what this film gave me.
A belief in living your dreams. A belief in doing. A belief in saying YES to life. A belief that people can do good. A belief in how beautiful this world is. A belief in putting less stock in things and more in experiences. A belief that one experience can change your life and what you choose to do with it as it did for the original crew in 1968.
I don’t want to climb mountains…too afraid of heights. I want to learn to surf though those waves seem just a little bit scary.
But I want to stop thinking myself out of the things I want to do. One life. One chance. What if we just said yes.
We have one life. We have one planet. What we choose to do with both of those things is our choice.
I cannot make a big enough recommendation. I was blown away. So many wise and wonderful things were said, so much beauty.
