for starters, i am glad to see the "S' curve is horizontal as opposed to vertical Wink

i would let the whole thing run wild for a bit to develop some girth to both the trunk and some of the branches...

(and if you have had it for a couple years, i assume you are not looking for care advice)

The second picture down reminds me of your tree, and might provide some inspiration.

It still comes down to the previous advice- let it grow wild for a while, and maybe do so planted in a much larger, deeper pot to thicken that trunk up a bit. With the right conditions, you could get some really nice aerial roots dropping from the horizontal.
