Chica Brava Surf Nicaragua

:D Thanks for the share, Chica Brava Surf Nicaragua

"Being a surfer was something I dreamed of and never had a single doubt I would do. I took my hits along the way but by being connected to something bigger than myself and recognizing my place in the world, and through the sheer power of the ocean, my perspective changed – including my perspective of myself. All of a sudden, what I look like while surfing, what I look like after a session, doesn’t matter. It’s quite possible I look like a drowned rat at the beach, I just don’t care because of the ultimate joy I’m soaking up. That roll of flesh on your belly? Suddenly it’s not in the forefront of your mind. Surfing is presence in motion, it’s meditation in motion. And experiencing that is how I began to fall in love with myself and everything my body was capable of"

Thought Catalog

Because I often fear I'm not good enough and will never find a partner who stays

You are not an option, you are a decision and if someone wants to be with you- they will do everything in their power to do it. Embrace yourself- you are eventually going to find someone who will snuggle in your beauty, grace, and intelligence. Someone who will stay up nights when you need to talk and challenge you to spend time on your alone, to push your comfort zones, to meet new people- to be the best you can be.

[01/16/14]   I took melatonin last night and I haven't felt this rested, clear headed, and energized in a long time.

Melatonin is a natural hormone that regulates the human biological clock.

Where is it found?
Melatonin is produced by the pineal gland, located within the brain. Levels of melatonin in the body fluctuate with the cycles of night and day. The highest melatonin levels are found at night. Melatonin is present in foods only in trace amounts. 01/15/2014

[01/03/14]   Struggling to lose weight? It may be your sleep! A recent study found that those who had 8 ½ hours of sleep lost 56% more body fat than individuals who were eating the same diet, but just getting 5 ½ hours of sleep. Also, when we are sleep deprived, we tend to eat 300 extra calories a day! So, get your beauty sleep.
