Scuba Diving: An Analogy
I realized something while Scuba diving in Catalina, we take things for granted more on land than underwater. On land, we worry and stress about anything and everything and take for granted the little things in life. Like breathing for instance...Underwater you are conscious of every inhale and every exhale. You try to look all around and take every inch of your surroundings in. Your only concern is for where your next breath comes from and the safety of your partners. Your partners concerns are your concerns, and vice versa. You always carry an extra hose, just in case they need to breathe your air in an emergency situation. I just wish that we(I) cared so much for things such as this when i was living the day to day on land. Take a step back and truly cherish that you have breath to breathe and partners who care for you and would breathe for you if you couldn't do it yourself. Just a thought.
