A Day in the Life of a Hussey

There’s a quote I’ve become obsessed with recently…

“Don’t compare your behind the scenes to somebody else’s highlight reel.”

I recorded this fun video to show you my ‘behind the scenes’… (Be sure to watch right to the end or you’ll leave just thinking I’m an ass!)

While I’ve shot this in a fun way, there is a big takeaway I want to leave you with:

Life can be monotonous.

Most people’s lives aren’t that interesting hour by hour, minute by minute.

However Facebook and other social media outlets have created a place for people to share only the most exciting parts of their lives.

This can lead us to thinking that our life pales in comparison to what others are doing (leaving us feel terrible).

There’s a quote that sums this up beautifully that I’ve become obsessed with…

“Don’t compare your behind the scenes to somebody else’s highlight reel.”

Looking at everyone else’s highlight reel through the lens of social media is demoralising and depressing.

The truth is, most people’s lives day-to-day are incredibly monotonous, and when you’re on a mission and trying to achieve something, it often requires you do the same things every day.

I don’t want us to become demoralised, and so I shot the video above to bring you back to reality and show how exciting my life really is.

We have to realise that social media is a facade, and that when we can stop comparing our lives to the highlight reels of others, we’ll be able to get more out of our own lives and enjoy our own day to day much more.

Once we see through this veneer, we have the ability to really focus on our own exciting adventure.

    1. Wow! I couldn’t have said it better myself. May I make your words mine, please? Matt is an ABSOLUTELY fascinating person, not to mention he’s an incredibly gorgeous man,and much of it is helped by the people he is surrounded by. So we must indeed thank God for all the people in his life who, in turn, make it possible to possible to have him in hour lives. ;)

  • Matthew,
    This video made my day,its so funny even though its not realistic.
    We know you’re busy…common! xx

  • It is not the most boring daily thing I do but it is the hardest thing to just keep doing even when I don’t wanna:
    Whole 30 diet, Crossfit, kettlebells, plus arm workouts. Love it when I am in it and love the endorphins afterwards, but it is an effort to get myself going and keep going so I get the results I want.

  • Hahahahahaha can’t stop laughing at that! :D
    Totally agree …I made the greatest achievements of my life while I was off Facebook!

  • Ha ha! That was great & v helpful indeed. Altho I do need to get my life more in balance. More life less work!! Thanks Matt!

  • ROFL, just saw this video and thought the last part was super hilarious. Why is Matthew so hot, has a cute smile, and an amazing sense of humor?
    Love the quote btw, gonna post it to my fb status so everyone thinks I’m super deep and amazing :-P

  • Just watched this again. Only your true fans would watch this to the end. I’ve watched it twice and it’s still funny. What does that say about me?

  • Most boring thing…drink blueberry tea. Then, while out, give and get bear hugs from new friends that I am going to make…wherever I go! Yeah, boring bear hugs….not! I dare everyone to hug someone today.

  • you seem like such a “the tough macho guy when your doing the check in with the phone, thats the best part of the whole video!:)

  • I’ve been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never
    found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me.
    In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as
    you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.
