I just returned from my first trip to Costa Rica where I celebrated my 40th Birthday. What better way to enjoy this milestone than to see a beautiful country for a surf trip. The people were warmhearted, the food was fresh, and the waves were plenty.
Because I just turned 40, a lot of people asked me if I felt old. I answered them truthfully that I still feel young. My response wasn’t a positive affirmation, it was just my experience. In my 30’s, I discovered surfing which has since become a passion of mine. Today, I feel that I am in the best shape of my life and able to do so much more on a surfboard than when I was 5 years younger.
I documented that vitality with my GoPro camera strapped to my surfboard as I braved the head high waves. You can see that energizing clip here:
To sum up the secret to my vitality at 40 years old, I share my recipe for sustained youth:
FOOD that fully nourishes your body
FAMILY that truly nourishes your heart
FUN that enlivens your spirit with laughter
PASSIONATE PHYSICAL EXPRESSION!
Be young. Be energy in motion.
