I am Josh and I currently live in Hawaii. I have been working in the Navy for 10 years now. I am very good friends with Anne when I met her while she was living in Hawaii. She told me about this course and here I am. I enjoy getting out and exploring from going hiking to snowboarding. I hope everyone is doing well during the corona-virus pandemic.
This project did take time to put together and write it out. You think that now that you identified the negatives of your life, everything will get better... This is where now I am working on acknowledging them and moving forward.
“Day by day, I am progressing towards my perfect weight”
“A constant supply of wealth is pouring into my life”
“Wonderful things are happening in my life everyday”
“I am at peace with myself and with the world”
“I think positive thoughts that attract happiness and prosperity into my life”
My go to personal thought that helps me get through moments of helplessness or feeling stressed is: IT’S OKAY.
One thing that I discovered over nine years ago that I truly enjoy scuba diving. The first time that I went diving was during my time being stationed in Guam. The initial open water course was how I was able to get certified. I did have moments of fear during this time where I had to remove my mask underwater and swim a certain distance without being able to see. I panicked and shot to the surface without any regard to the safety concerns of being underwater. Luckily, it was not deep enough for me to experience the bends.
My instructor chased me to the surface and gave me a pep talk about staying calm and thinking through moments that might be uncomfortable or even terrifying. This will allow you to make more logical decisions and not cause unwanted harm. After this initial scare, I have over 60 dives in Guam, Hawaii, and even the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. I recently was certified for Advanced Open water which allows me to dive deeper and go on more challenging dives. I even reenlisted in the Navy underwater.
The best feeling of scuba diving is seeing a world which many only see from the surface. I have enjoyed diving with sharks, only being able to see with a flashlight while night diving and exploring wrecks. This will be something I will be looking forward to after the pandemic.
