It's been brought to my attention, that I haven't been updated my blog as of late.
I am getting settled in Bali, with my new life as an instructor and my life has become a routine, with nothing new to share. I feel like I have nothing new to write about. I continue to love diving, teaching new divers, working with awesome people...and life continues to be AMAZING. and I just had a revelation about just how amazing my life is.

My bestest friend S is visiting me from NYC so I took a week off from work and we just arrived on a beautiful island called Gili Air, a couple of hours east on a fast boat ride from Bali. It's a very tiny island, with no cars or motorbikes. Only means of transport are horse carriages or bicycles. You can probably walk the entire perimeter of the island in couple of hours. It's a charming island and a perfect beach getaway.

And yet...I don't get the sense that "I'm on vacation"!

I'm realizing, my life IS already a vacation. I wake up and dress myself in a bathing suit, sit on a diving boat, look out into the beautiful horizon of the ocean practically everyday. I get to dive in one of the best dive sites in the world. My days are surrounded in palm trees and rice paddies. THIS is my life.
And to think, this is exactly the life I dreamed about my whole life.
I'm not sure how my life can get much better...!

I'm so happy to spend a week with S, who flew across the world to see me. I feel grateful and loved :))).
