Drawing on decades of experience in the fields of surfing, martial arts, and human well-being, I can attest to the profound intersection of these areas often share. One image that springs to mind is that of a young kid, fearlessly surfing the powerful ocean waves on a makeshift surfboard - a simple piece of wood. The kid's joy and thrill are palpable, embodying the very essence of the phrase, "Do more of what makes you happy."
Imagine a young kid standing on a pristine beach, the sound of crashing waves filling the air. Armed with nothing more than a simple piece of wood, they embark on a journey of joy and discovery. With each wave they catch, their face lights up with pure exhilaration. This scene encapsulates a powerful lesson: happiness lies not in the grandeur of possessions or the complexity of our pursuits, but in the simplicity of embracing what brings us true joy. In that moment, the child embodies the philosophy of "do more of what makes you happy." With a positive attitude and an open heart, they unlock a world of happiness, allowing the surf to become their teacher, guiding them toward the beauty and peace that nature offers. The message here is clear: whether it's surfing, art, music, or any other passion, let us all strive to do more of what makes us happy, for it is through such pursuits that we unlock the true essence of a fulfilled life.
Regardless of the simplicity of their gear or the grandeur of the ocean, the child's relentless spirit and positive attitude are what truly stand out. Their joyous engagement with the surf mirrors life itself – sometimes calm, sometimes turbulent, but always rich with opportunities for joy and growth. The beauty of their experience is that it reminds us all to approach life with a surfer's grit, and above all, a relentless pursuit of what makes us truly happy. In the journey of life, remember to carry a positive attitude, for it is your compass, guiding you towards brighter shores.
