Went for my first ever wakeboarding session last Sunday! I’ve been looking forward to it, because it has been something I’ve always wanted to do, and also I want to feel the surge of thrill and excitement of trying something new for the first time! Haven’t managed to successfully stand yet, but will definitely want to make that happen in my next trip! And, I really enjoy being out at the sea. This trip revived my long-forgotten desire of wanting to become a beach babe! 😉 I’ll take more photos on my next trip!
Speaking of riding the waves, many a times in life, someone will just throw a bomb at you. I used to just catch the bomb and let it explode in my hands, complain whine cry when everything, including myself, is blown into pieces, take some time to recover and then think of the next step. A disturbing event just happened a few hours ago while I was trying to cook some pasta for myself FOR THE FIRST TIME (was looking forward to see if I’ve any hidden talent in cooking, but the event just spoilt my mood and appetite totally). Now that it has passed, I reflect back and realized I’ve been more steadfast and calm in settling this issue. And I will not just catch the bomb now, I will fly off together with the bomb as it explodes, and leverage on its huge wave of energy. This is what MD always meant by 借力打力. LEVERAGE. Leverage on the energy brought by external events because these are beyond our control, so we choose to control our reactions and emotions. Leverage on the power of the Universe because that is a much bigger and more macro environment we live in. Just like how I was trying to leverage on the waves to push me forward and stand up while wakeboarding. With leverage, we will be able to achieve much more with optimal effort. In Chinese, we call it 事半功倍 (achieve full results with only half the effort).
JY, brace yourself for a fruitful, productive and possibly life-changing week ahead! 加油加油!
