I had this thought out in the water the other day:
When I go surfing, I never think about falling or doing it wrong. I’m never scared. I never have fear. I am always stoked, with the biggest smile on my face.
If I paddle for a wave, take off, stand up, and eat it. I never get discouraged, I never get mad. I never think to myself “Man, I suck!!”. In fact, I love a good wipe out, its a very humbling experience, and it always reminds me that I shouldn’t take life too seriously. And it always results in me laughing hysterically, as I swim back to my board.
When I’m out there, floating in the ocean, I’m goofy, I’m free, I’m like a kid. It reminds me of one of those astro jumps you would play on at your friends birthday party. But bigger, and more beautiful shades of blue and gentle.
The truth is, I’ve never been more happy than when I’m surfing.
And then I thought to myself, WOW…I should take on this outlook, and apply it to the rest of the things in my life. (Duh!)
Have no fear, fun times are here :)
