rooster from surfs up
I have always loved the classic movie, “The surfing of rooster”. I remember as a young child watching it in the theater, and feeling like the movie was about all of the things that I am now experiencing in my life.
But in the movie it is not about what you are experiencing but what you are avoiding. That is the underlying theme of the movie and the theme of our lives. Avoiding what we fear, hoping it will not happen, fighting it and getting back to the way things were before. We are all the same whether we are surfers or not.
It’s funny how sometimes when we look at the world through the lens of our own experiences and fears we can be surprised to discover the world is full of similar things. For example, when I look at my children, I see a boy that I used to yell at with a mean face and a mouth full of red molars. He has since graduated college and has a nice job. I see a boy that I used to be mad at and would yell at.
The same could be said about our own fears. For example, I used to be so afraid of the ocean that I would yell at people to jump in. That was a good idea until I realized that I was looking at the same thing.
I’m surprised that we’ve never talked about such a profound change in the way we think and feel. I guess we’ve all had the experience of something that made us realize that we were being a bit of a coward, but in the same way that we realized we were being a bit of a fool, we were also realizing that we were being a bit of a coward, but in the same way that we realized we were being a bit of a fool.
The last time I talked to someone who had had a similar experience was a few years ago. I told him I was having the same issue as he was. And he said, “Oh, I’ve heard about this.” I asked him what he meant by the word “this”, and he said he was surprised that he hadn’t heard about this before. That was the last time I saw him.
I had a similar realization after talking to a friend who had had some similar issues. He was a surfer who had been in the ocean for a number of years and was afraid to surf because of the thought that he would die. He said the last time he had surfed was a couple of weeks ago and that he surfed every day for the last month.
Surfing is a form of motor control that helps you get out of a dangerous situation, and the last thing you want to do is get out of a dangerous situation for too long. The best way to avoid this is to surf longer, and if you can do that, you can do it safely and with confidence. Surfing allows you to exercise, improve one’s posture, and feel your body and muscles grow in all the right ways.
