Break Diving is full of people who are willing to share and care for each other. We help others worldwide to build confidence in themselves. From Break Diving, I learned to share the joy I get when someone replies to my post with others, give them the same joy. We help each other not only at work but also in their life. When someone has a problem, we share our tips and do our best to troubleshoot. I can always find a topic and people that I can relate to, share about the knowledge that I know and realize that what I shared can influence someone else is BIG, and I LOVE it! Though we’re not with each other physically, we all shine a positive light that can lighten up the others. Monroe once told me: “life is full of regrets but we should turn them into a launch pad, and No Rules. No Excuses. No Regrets.” which has deeply impacted me.
I like to keep things organized and fulfill my day with tasks. I believe that challenges are what make life interesting and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.
