Are you doing it right?

Today I have just been through an audit and even though all went well I had that nagging thought of ‘did I do it right’?

Sometimes when we are seeking to improve ourselves we have to be told what we are doing wrong. Don’t take it personally, its just another opportunity to learn to do it the right way…or at least the way that someone else thinks is right.

…and of course if all else fails book a flight to Bali and get ready to ‘Dive For Your Life’

Good luck and if you f**k it up, what does it really matter anyway.

This wont hurt a bit…

Attendance at a dentist’s practice is not on my list of things to do, but when you have to you have to.

So when I went to get my crown done the other day the conversation went kind of like this.

Doctor: Good afternoon

Me: Yes it is

Doctor: So you know what we are going to be doing today?

Me: Yes, you are going to make me a princess.

Doctor: Oh no, a princess wears a tiara, a queen wears a crown.

Me: Dammit.

Sometimes we may experience pain to achieve a goal, and other times it just happens with ease.

Never give up, because seriously  you too can ‘Dive for your Life’

Good luck and hope it does hurt like f**k

Learn me

We have an opportunity to learn something new everyday but do we always take the opportunity.

Is it something you want to learn, will it benefit us, do we learn because we have to or do we choose to challenge ourselves?

Learning is one side, teaching is the other. To aid learning the teacher must be able to teach, which is a very different skillset.

Today I learnt never to trust everything you are taught, check it out for yourself, challenge the learning and then do your own research.

If you want, I can teach you to ‘Dive for your Life’

Trust me, I wont f**k it up

Life is like…

…passing wind.

Its something you have to do, but you can never be guaranteed to the results.

So you might as well ‘Dive For Your Life’

Good luck and don’t s**t your pants!

Vampire Fish

I have been considering becoming a vampire recently however I feel that I would not last very long…

I faint at the sight of blood

So rather than suck blood, lets suck air and ‘Dive For Your Life’

Good luck and don’t suck it up!

The bright lights

Bright lights always attract prey. Whether it is the bright lights of the city and the treasures they offer, or the bright lights of the shrimp trawler that attracts the unsuspecting decapod crustaceans.

Typically waiting on the other side of the bright light is something a little more sinister than we originally perceived.  Well, its the lights that attracted you and if you don’t come into the light, you will never know what is on the other side.

So swim towards the light as its time to ‘Dive For Your Life’

Good luck and don’t f**k it up!

Sharks are out there

As the storm approached, news reached us that there would be no ferry for the next 3 days. Upon arriving at the terminal our worst fears were realized, we were about to be stranded on a tropical island, literally.

Contacting some locals, we were able to secure passage on a sea taxi however the fare had increased by 250%. Now I understand that it is a little more bumpy and a little more dangerous but it strikes me as taking a little bit too much advantage of the situation.

Supply and demand determine the price and I needed to be back on the mainland so I willing parted with my cash. Home safe and sound after an arduous journey I now feel it was money well spent.

Shark with teeth or just a shark?

Well, I live for another day so I may as well ‘Dive for MY life’

Good luck to me and I hope I don’t f**k it up!

No One Escapes Fear

No one in this world escapes fear, but everyone can reconsider its causes and learn to evaluate them correctly.

Before I started diving about 6 years ago, I had a fear of deep water and was petrified of fish.

Even though I was a good swimmer I was always nervous when the water was too deep.

In the ocean I never used to look beneath the waves, instead I would pretend I had the ocean all to myself.

A series of personal tragedies made me re-evaluate my life and challenge my fears.

Today I am a PADI Staff Instructor with many dives, many students and many experiences.

So, reconsider your fears because its time to ‘Dive For Your Life’

Good luck and don’t f**k it up

Is it yours?

Sitting on a plane last night I looked in my seat pocket and was confused when I was unable to find the menu. Who would have taken the menu off the plane? Surely this is something you don’t need to take home and study.

So I reached over to the other passengers seat pocket and pulled the menu out of there. The woman, listening on her headphones, looked at me like I had just stolen her wallet. I chose to ignore her and started to look through it. Dammit…someone had torn out the middle page where all the good stuff was, still no luck.

Reaching across to the other passengers pocket I was surprised and slightly annoyed to see the other passenger reach towards the pocket as if to deflect my hand. I was already focused and really wanted to know what I was going to order, so again decided to ignore my fellow passenger.

This menu was intact so I made my selection, returned the menu to the other seat pocket and happily ordered my meal as the cart passed me.

I have to ask…just because the menu is in the pocket in front of your seat, is it yours? Do I have to ask you to read it, or is it like in the dentist office where it is supplied for everyone?

Anyway, its time to ‘Dive For Your Life’

Good luck and don’t f**k it up.
