"Beautiful things don't ask for attention" - James Thurber

When I was learning how to freedive, my teacher recommended visualizing a place to keep me distracted so that I could stay underwater longer. I've never told anyone this, but this view is what I used. I would focus on little details of this picture as I could imagine any segment of this picture and find it beautiful. When I got close to giving up and going up for air, I'd zoom out and it would buy me a little more time.

 Before I knew it, I'd be under for minutes at a time and eventually, I stopped using it as a crutch because it distracted me from appreciating everything that I was seeing underwater.

As of late, I've been trying to figure out why I didn't like this specific chick. On paper, she was pretty great, had a lot going for her, and happened to be easy on the eyes. But for some reason, I didn't like her as much as she liked me. I think I've finally realized that it's because beautiful things don't ask for attention. She was gorgeous, and she knew it. But she wanted everyone else to know it in front of her.
