On Sunday, my buddies and I completed our F.I.I. Level 1 course and we’re officially certified freedivers! In this video, I did my first ever free immersion dive, which was essentially me pulling myself down a rope to 66 feet deep and back to the surface without the use of my fins. At first, I felt uncertain about being able to accomplish such a feat without any practice. However, it turned out to be a fairly easy task to do.
You have choices,
when lost in the shadows of your own mind,
Do you listen to that voice, which you know does not serve you,
or do you push back and push forward to the type of person you wish to become.
You can live in fear now,
Or just embrace what's real and present in front of you,
and flip the false story the bird as you walk into better perspectives and choices which give life, and not heartache.
And if you choose to believe the lies, even for a moment, know that if you dig into that trench, moving forward will be harder, later.
Don't believe the lies
Don't let fear take root
Don't believe you're better off alone
Surround yourself with those who hurt when you're hurting, and know you,
And push you towards those choices.
Choices that give life. Full life.
