Hiiiii my name is Lauryn ✌
I'm originally from Minnesota, USA but I've been living overseas for the better part of 7 years. I have always felt called to travel & scuba diving has been my passion since I was 12, so I became an instructor so I could teach what I love. 🐠🧜♀️ I've been diving for 19 years now, which is crazzzzzyyy but it's always been a constant in my life.
I have a lot of other passions too... too many to be honest... 🙈 But there are so many amazing things to explore and I love to learn so it can sometimes lead to indecisiveness!
But I've made a few very decisive decisions over the last year and know myself a lot better than I used to! Since getting sober I devote a lot more time to self care. Some dark nights of the soul meant that learning how to take care of myself became essential to survival. I'm learning to heal and it isnt pretty, its messy and sometimes self care looks like the opposite of bubble baths & #selfcare hashtags.
Sometimes it looks like me canceling plans with a friend because I needed to or setting a boundary & not having it be well recieved, sometimes it looks like a day of mulling around my house getting small things done slowly- those little wins. But some days it's big wins, and I've learned that I need energy for those days, which means I need time alone too.
Basically, I'm a human who has bad days and good days and high & low moments too. And sometimes I think we look on social media and think other people's lives are perfect, but no one's is. Dont be fooled, we're all in it together.☮
