Diving had always been something I wanted to do. So earlier this year after completing a bucket list, I decided to stop making excuse and start crossing things off. I signed up for classes, booked a trip, and bought an airline ticket. A few short weeks later, I was Mexico bound for the small island of Cozumel just off the Yucatán Peninsula.
Diving turned out to be a completely different experience than I had ever envisioned. It might sound a bit silly but it was more nature than I had expected; it was at the purest and calmest I’ve ever experienced. Once underwater the noise and worries of life above the surface quickly float away with the bubbles of each exhale. For that hour or so you’re down there the static and stress that is life is nonexistent.
My goal with this video was not only to share my experiences from the trip but also to show the contrast of our hectic life above compared the calm and serenity I experience just 100 feet below the surface.
