A few years ago I was feeling complacency in my life and really felt like I needed to introduce some excitement into my life. I came home one night from work and announced to my wife that I had just enrolled us in a scuba diving class that was starting the following night. I’ll never forget the look of confusion and terror that came across her face at this announcement. Looking back her reaction was probably quite normal considering I had never expressed an interest in scuba diving before and had not even mentioned that I knew what scuba diving was. This coupled with the fact that we were living in Idaho at the time which is not necessarily known as the scuba diving capital of the world probably didn’t help matters either. I have no idea why I chose scuba diving nor can I explain how I thought this change would be the solution to my feelings of complacency. I will give my wife credit, she went along with my rather unorthodox suggest and attended the classes with me.
