🦈Jumping on the #sharkweek bandwagon
A quick video of my first time in ocean water deeper than my waist😳. . . and swimming with one of the animals I had been taught to fear all my life. . . Talk about being thrown to the 🦈. . .I must have swallowed a gallon of salt water, caused more anxiety than truly needed, and played the jaws music in my head a million times. . . But to have had to mentally sooth myself when the shadows appeared beneath me and not to freak out when a curious silky cane in for a close up was like breaking through glass elevator. After that experience, I can honestly attest that my life changed. I no longer deny that I am not mentally strong enough to ever come any mental doubts that may arise. I think about the reality of a situation and calm the fears that creep from the shadows. Fear is a funny thing. It is like your attitude in life; it is something that only you have complete control over. -
A HUGE THANK YOU to @gatorboys_chris for helping me take my first step forward in turning my fear of the deep blue into an unquenchable fascination. It is amazing how much I have learned- and become appreciative of- in just one year. -
I highly recommend Chris for shark dives! Not only am I excited to go back again (this time not at the surface the whole time) and also try his new gator tour where you can safely experience what it is like to be in the water with one of nature’s most misunderstood creatures. -
When everything is moving and shifting, the only way to counteract chaos is stillness. When things feel extraordinary, strive for ordinary. When the surface is wavy, dive deeper for quieter waters.
