My courageous, strong, determined, inspiring, gorgeous, prince. Repost @chris.ldp:
Five years ago I was in the worst physical and mental state I had ever been in, a true rock bottom. Anxiety, depression and physical pain consumed me.
There was no path for me, so I became the path. It was then that I made an important decision, that decision was to Love myself.
My body became my temple. I started to view and value the world around me and all living beings me as my temple as well. I stopped eating animals because I wanted to become a more compassionate human being.
After adopting a vegan plant-based diet for ethical reasons I soon began to lose weight and ended up dropping over 65lbs. The diet became a lifestyle and showed me how to heal myself and the planet as well. I was reconnected with nature. I began to move with ease.
My moods stabilized, I progressively started to feel calmer and happier, I got off the anti-depressants, my world was changing.
I started to pursue my happiness, dreams and goals, something most of us never dare to do. After busting my ass for a bit, I got back on my feet and started saving everything I could. Five years went by and I sold everything I owned and decided to move to Nicaragua to build a Surf Lodge and Vegan Cafe on the beach called, Los Dos Plátanos. Through my business ventures, I plan to help others that are on the same journey.
Being in Nicaragua on the beach allows me to be in nature all the time and I want to share that with the world. The creation of @losdosplatanos is a way for us to teach others how staying active and eating consciously can increase your vitality and overall wellness.
My journey has been far from easy and I still have a long way to go, however each day I learn to Love myself more. I do my best to keep an open heart and share the same Love with the world around me.
Thank you. I am grateful for all I have and all those who have given me Love and light in this life. I hope to have all of you as my guests at Los Dos Plátanos in the near future.
