Have you ever heard of penny farthing?
Picture the oldest bicycle you can imagine, with one large wheel at the front and one tiny wheel at the back. People still ride those! Penny farthing races are quite funny to watch, but even more fun to be a part of. Let’s listen to some cyclists describe how they find joy out of being chuckled at!
So the cyclists find their joy in the smiles they bring to peoples faces! Pursuing a unique passion or hobby can not only motivate you but can serve as a conversation topic and jumping off point to inspire your peers. Imagine how much happiness we could spread if we all did something we truly loved.
