Just watched this amazing @netflix doc over lunch. Tears. Full tears. @resurfacemovie is such a beautiful film about our warriors coming back from the theaters of war and now wresting the unimaginable terrors of PTSD. It's the journey of these incredible men and women into the water (and themselves) in search of moments of peace, hope, and a new story to connect with. "I could feel the oceans heart beat like it was this living breathing thing, it wasn't death and destruction, trauma and hell. I closed my eyes to go to sleep and the only thing I could dream about was catching my next wave" Finding balance and solace in healing power of nature. With all the chaos of the world it's so life affirming to share such a story of humanity. @operationsurf u are beautiful. @whiteheart you are too. And Veterans, your sacrifices are what has made this country great for 250 years!

  • Just watched this Eric. Very powerful.

  • Very cool

  • Local Boys 🙌🏼🎬🎥

  • Really wonderful concept ❤️

  • thank you for resurface!! so touching & beautiful

  • I want to see it. Thx for the tip 😘

  • Such stirring words Eric on this awful issue of PTSD and returning vets. It's not enough that these brave men and women have seen and endured such horrors in countries like Afghanistan, they then have to deal with PTSD when they return. My heart breaks for every one of them and I am so glad that there is a light at the end of the tunnel for some with this programme. In Australia there is a similar programme run by Surfing Australia called Soldier On which has also proved very successful with vets and PTSD. Just sitting on a surfboard in the ocean is sometimes all these vets need when they are having a bad, day, it's amazing the therapeutic affect it has. I recently watched a 1 hour long programme on local TV which interviewed returning vets, some homeless, most unable to find work, broken marriages all from the affects of PTSD, I cried for a solid hour, it was a problem that I just didn't realise was so serious here in Australia, I was so wrong. I salute all these brave vets and the volunteers who run programmes such as Soldier On and Operation Surf in the US and I thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and I really hope that Netflix Australia have this doco, I so want to watch it. 👍❤️

  • @beachbumlezlee I want to watch this, all the tears 🙈

  • I had not heard of it, but thank you. I will see her. in this crazy world that we walk we need moments to reflect. I think it will be a good movie 👍❤😊@ericcolsen

  • Nice😍😍

  • @kellytink17 I said to Marc last night ! Came up on Netflix, defo 💙😍🌊

  • Just watched this, very moving. It would be great to help veterans in England to surf as well, don't know if that is a possibility.

  • Literally just finished watching! Wish it was a whole series. Very special

  • Same here! Just finished. Amazing work for men and women who deserve our help! 💙

  • Sorry habe mein Übersetzer nicht an mein Englisch schon aus der Übung

  • Okay definitely watching that today

  • Thank u @ericcolsen !! I'll watch it. I am sure its a good movie. Have a amazing day. LOVE U 💜💜💜

  • I just watched it and it brought tears to my eyes as well. The fact these guys were going to kill themselves right after surfing but then rode a wave and that changed their life, it's incredibly powerful. Thank you for posting about this because I had no idea the power of surfing or ocean therapy, and you just opened my eyes to it. So thank you ❤️

  • Sounds like an incredible story. Their suffering is tragic.

  • Thank you @ericcolsen for sharing and the positive feedback on our program. If you have the time come up to our next Operation Surf event this October 6-12 In Avila Beach Ca in San Luis Obispo county. If you don't surf there are many ways to help. Come up it's better in person.

  • Know what I will be watching this weekend! Thank you!

  • @ericcolsen thank you so much for recommending this. It is an amazing film. Watched it on a plane and quite difficult not to cry in front of strangers. I failed.

  • @ericcolsen thank you 🙏🏼❤️

  • Just watched this it is amazing 😉 so much courage

  • Thank you for watching!

  • Thank you for sharing this ♡

  • Great movie

  • Wow! Thank you @ericcolsen for posting about our @resurface documentary. Your support means so much! If you ever want to surf. I would love to have you out. Mahalo! 🤙 🏄 #operationsurf#resurface

One of the great joys of my life is seeing my parents interact with Bear and Squish. Watching the hands that carved and shaped my childhood hold onto the tiny fingers of the ones that I am now responsible for is magic. Intellectually, emotionally, logistically...magic. Because for the first time in my relationship with parents I fully understand why they look at me the way they do. With pride, and hope, and fear, and love. For all things that have happened and for the vast unknown of the things waiting to happen. It’s a perpetual flurry of possibilities and all we can do is hold onto those tiny fingers and tell them about how slippery the ice is, while still giving them the strength and courage to cross it. #littlebitofperfect
Crazy beautiful insane weekend. This is what the last leg on a 48 hour trip to London looks like. This kid blows my mind everyday. His grace, kindness, and patience are greater than my own; He’s a human golden retriever. Also, I need to pledge my unending love to @swrightolsen because she’s the best partner on the planet. Everybody is on 3 hours of sleep, she’s dressed as a knight wearing 70 pound of armor jumping off a horse, and she still carries the light. And thank u to the random guy on the plane that just tried to give me his extra upgrade to business until the gate guy shut us down. You’re a G and that kind of blind thoughtfulness is a thing of beauty. #happinessisthejourney #sleepwhenweredead #teamworkmakesthedreamwork #supporttheonesyoulove #littlebitofperfect
Why does a family fly to London over a short weekend, shoot for 24 hours, and turn around and fly home? For @markwebber and @freekareekasheekadeeka and LOVE. #littlebitofperfect #happinessisthejourney #comingsoon #nosleeptillbrooklyn

@yourzenmama just launched a new section with a fantastic interview with Jennifer Garner. This site was created by two of my favorite people on the planet @swrightolsen & @teresapalmer and is the definition of leading with LOVE. Couldn’t be more proud of them and the way they celebrate the journey. #zenmama #mamastrong #motherhoodrising #motherlove #mamamuses

Last night’s speech was a profound articulation of what Oprah does better than maybe anybody else, finding a path forward. Her reassurance in the power of speaking our truth, listening, finding the common humanity in the void, pivoting as individuals, and ultimately adapting as a species. The beauty of her message was not only in its inspirational strength but also in its inclusiveness, that we all have an amazing opportunity to move forward as the best versions of ourselves. We are ALL part of this. We can ALL be better. Yes, this is the moment to take down the monsters of world. The Harveys and Spaceys, that so clearly abandoned the black and white delineation of good vs evil. But also this is a moment of introspection for all of us, because this truth, like every other facet of life, is found in the complexities of gray. The univeral change comes in the everyday moments of our lives when we heard the voice in our heads that said, I could have done better, I could have led with love. The real change comes when we have the strength and courage to say next time I will do better. I can be a better husband, I can be a better co-worker, I can be a better father, a teacher, a teammate, a son, brother, friend, sister, daughter, mother and ultimately a better human being. I say it to Wyatt every time he trips his sister or treats her in a way that doesn’t reflect our values, “Every moment is another opportunity to choose LOVE” #TIMESUP and now we must all lead with that love. For the sake of our daughters, for the sake of our sons, for the love of us all. Oprah you were the queen last night, and I fell asleep in celebration of your vision of all of us. #change #changestartswithme
