Somethin To Think About...

"The fifth and final Lopez rule: The best surfer in the water is the guy having the most fun..."
 Gerry Lopez.   
"Surf is where you find it"


I think this relates to a lot of things in life. At times it is so easy to get caught up in what everyone else is doing or what they might think. It is also very easy to get caught up in trying to "be the Best"and out do or better what others have done....I know I fall victim to all of this at times as I am building things, it kind of sits in the back of the head, especially when something is not perfect or not working out quite the way I would like.... Really we should just go out do our thing, whatever that may be, and have a blast doing it, living in the now and not worrying so much about who it's going to impress.  Just enjoy the act of doing, and building. Everything will fall into place as it should. And oddly enough it will show in the product, be it art, fashion, or catching a glassy wave.  Remember it is all in your perspective and how you look at each situation. At the end of the day it is up to you and no one else on what you are going to do with the hand that is delt. Only you can 'make it FUN!'

Have a good week.

Cheers.

It's my favorite citation ... first because i'm the baddest surfer girl of this world :) but i always try to have fun in the water. It will be cool that the other guys in the water will take this rule for themself, there is too much testoterone at the pick, guys shout on girls, sometimes there is fight on the beach ... it's difficult to don't be embittered by this modern surf or also in society. We can't change the world but we can change ourself.
