I am an adventurer & I am a free diver
I started to love more and more free diving when I got to know more about free diving.
I am an adventurous sporty lady and I love chAllenges.
But free diving is giving me different concepts of challenge.
I am a hardcore person, in many situations, I like to push myself, harder and harder if I really want to do something.
But free diving is telling me, listen to your body and your mind. Dont push too much.
I want to be a Freedive Instructor
In Nov when I decided to become a free dive instructor. I planed my schedules in Dec/Jan to do AIDA4 and IDC.
Didnt know the month before came to Philippines was so busy and I didnt have any time to study the theories of free diving.
The time when I came to Panglao. I was so excited to start my courses. I knew will be a tough time. But I am ready.
I did one day crossover to AIDA3. All good except the theories. I had to study hard again which made me so stressed. And I had to also study AIDA4. Ever more stressed.
I did many things under pressure or stressed and I enjoyed these moment made me more focus on what i was doing. But free diving gave me a different result. The more I felt stressed, the less I can focus on relaxation. My mind started to wander and my equalization also started to against me.
At beginning, I knew I had a schedule and I believed I can do it. And few days same problems. I knew I cant push myself. Thing only GONNA get worst.
The Endless Ocean
Just to RELAX
"JUST LISTEN TO YOUR BODY & MIND"
"JUST TO BE RELAXED"
So I decided to postpone my schedule to become an instructor.
I decided to take few days off to enjoy the NEW YEAR time on the beach. I felt so relaxed myself that days and had a great NEW YEAR party on the beach.
BACK TO OCEAN
The 2nd day of 2019, I back to the ocean after 4 days relax and fun [I believe that's a big part of my life]
Sometimes Ocean gives you fear-the endless blue you cant see on the surface. But just that fear makes me want to conquer the ocean and I think it's more to conquer yourself.
I was so happy the first day of training. I got my PB : 27.7m
And the 2nd day training on Jan 3rd, I got another PB and first time reached 30.2m. I was so happy.
I am getting closer and closer to my goal 40m which is the min requirement to become an instructor.
I want to share and spread free diving to more people. I want them to love ocean like me and to explore a special world - into the blue.
I started liking to hang myself in the middle of the ocean where only myself - you feel the tininess of yourself in the ocean; but your feel the strong in your mind like the ocean.
[And today!! MY NEW PB again: 31.2m, haha]
The past 2 years, I spent so many time in the ocean. Just for diving.
Many people started to ask me "Silver, are you still hiking? How about HikingLovers?"
Once you love something, the passion drives you there to do it.
Once you have a goal, the determination drives you to finish it.
I think that's what diving [both scuba dive and free dive] drives me the past 2 years.
But I just want to say. First, I am an adventurer. I love adventures and I love mountains. So I will never give up either one. I will go for both.
Every time when someone asking my dream. I said I want to spend half of my life in Mountains and another half in the ocean.
I appreciated what life brought me so far.
HikingLovers brings me always to the mountains with awesome hikers and adventurers.
I believe DIVINGLOVERS soon will brings me always to the ocean with awesome divers and explore more in the ocean.
Who am I?
I am Silver
I am an adventurer
I am a diver
See you in the mountains or underwater!!
You live only once
So do what you love
Love what you are doing
Begins to Love
