FRIDAY TUNES WITH DIVA CORY
We’ve been out of action for a while but don’t you worry, we’ve got you covered tonight because a Friday is always better with them music good times! And you know what makes music and dancing even better, A Diva, a true earth gliding diva. Diva Cory is one of Atmosea’s longest and dearest friends, with a smile that gifts anyone’s day a breath of fresh air. Diva is light and soulful, with a terrific and admirable capability to give time to everyone she comes across. Now dine in and diva out gang, this Friday is yum!
What is your morning routine like?
In my perfect regular morning routine, I get up about 30 mins before the kids, have a coffee, read a book or stretch and take some deep breaths before the preschool hustle starts, then its action time with showers, breakfasts, lunches, finding of socks and school clothes before everybody is off to their respective buses and day care, then it’s another coffee and if things are going to plan a cheeky surf before digging into the work day.
Weekends are about taking it easy, getting to the beach and drinking coffee… as long as there is coffee I’m pretty content.
What comes to mind when daydreaming about how to make the world a better place?
A world where all children are nurtured, treated like treasures and loved, to grow up into joyful adults.
Describe your healthy staple meal to us? Lots and lots and lots of greens and veggies, avocado, goats cheese, coopers shoot tomatoes, eggs any way, balsamic vinegar, hot sauce ……ok now I’m hungry.
What issues or topics do you want to read more about from the Atmosea team?
I love everything about the topics that come from Atmosea, its diverse and inspiring, just more of all of this!
Tell us your favourite surf memory? Or surf fantasy?
My most memorable surf memory is the look on Maria’s face after getting barrelled on a crazy day at the outer reef at Sarangan Bali, looking back we were so out of our depth and panic laughing while dodging these massive sets, she went for one and the look on her face after was pure life “she’s got the crazy eyes”. I can see her face like it happened just yesterday.
What are your strengths you are most proud of?
I’m most proud of my passion, focus and desire to push myself even into uncomfortable spaces to grow, follow my dreams and heart.
What are your pet peeves, like people leaving food scraps in the sinkhole after washing up, or maybe it’s seeing people wear odd socks?
hmmm I’m not sure If I’m prepared to share this with the world haha.
How do you measure personal strength?
Being true to and looking after my inner child.
Are you more an introvert or extrovert, or bane the existence of these attributes and try to channel both, selectively?
Definitely a bit of both, I love to get on stage in front of people but with my friends I really froth on smaller groups and one on one time. A bit of time to myself is golden, but so is a van full with my partner, friends and kids all having a chat.
