“Shane brought everyone hope. Here’s a new day, what are we going to do with it? What are we going to explore?”
– Tony Hawk on Shane McConkey
McConkey is definitely one of my favorite documentaries. It’s hard not to admire someone who commits to what they love doing so fully. Shane seemed fearless in his pursuit of fun and happiness. The man was wildly authentic. He served as an example for everyone to make each day count. Fill it up. Use it.
I think we can all be a little bit more like Shane and stop resisting the things that scare us and instead push ourselves to be ourselves and to explore our passions. Look at each day as a new opportunity to create something great. To explore and to learn and try something new.
So go on an try something new today. And have some fun, too. And check out the documentary. At the very least you’ll be wow’d by the insane cinematography, but here's to hoping it does a little more than that.
