Hey there! Thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog πŸ™‚

Now what can I tell you about myself?

My name is Daniel, and i’m currently 25 years old. I was born and raised in So. California and have lived here my whole life. At the young age of 11 years old I picked up a surfboard and haven’t looked back since. Surfing, enjoying the ocean and traveling in search of the perfect waveΒ is my biggest passionΒ and love in life.Β 

Surfing is a very physically demandingΒ sport and requires you to be on top of your health and flexibility. This has always been important to me as well because I want to perform at the highest level.Β This led me to study massage and become aΒ Certified Massage Practitioner.

I also have a strong passion for health, wellness, natural healing and nutrition. This is great because surfing and health go hand in hand! My passion drives me to share with others this knowledge and awareness that comes with taking care of your health and healing your body from a natural direction. Β I enjoy motivating, inspiring, and teaching others how they can improve their health and wellness, take care of their bodies andΒ get the most out of life!

This leads me to my overall vision of living my dreams whileΒ inspiring and helping others to do the same! I have BIG dreams and aspirations. I want to live a life full ofΒ freedom, travel the world, surf epic waves, and really enjoy life the simple things.

I strive to improve myself and be the best person I can be through daily practice, continuously learning and applying new things and feeding my mind with things that are uplifting, positive, motivating, inspiring, productive and that support my vision.

I firmly believe thatΒ mindset & personal developmentΒ are crucial in life. Focusing on becoming a better YOU will help you achieve your goals, and allow you to live the life you’ve always dreamed of. After all, we are here to enjoy life, be happy and do the things we love,Β right?

  44. Hi Daniel, Love you blog and thank you for liking my most recent post! I’d like to dream big and still think that Order of The Dimensions will be a movie, but it’s tough sometimes.

  50. HI Daniel. Thanks for liking my post about NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). Goodness, you’re quick, I only posted it about an hour ago lol! It’s great that you have discovered what you want to do early in your life. πŸ™‚

  51. Daniel Dow says:

    Wow, Nancy, thank you soo much for your kind and encouraging words! πŸ™‚ It really means a lot. Thank you for stopping by and following as well! That is so wonderful and a great thing to do for your children. Life is meant to be enjoyed and be happy. Supporting and encouraging your kids’ dreams and aspirations is soo great… I know they will be grateful πŸ™‚ It is never to late to start living the life you have always imagined. You just have to start… have you read ‘Think and Grow Rich’ by Napoleon Hill? I highly recommend it… I act wrote a blog post where you can get the book for free! πŸ˜€ Again, thank you for stopping by and leaving your wonderful comment…and following! All the best Nancy πŸ™‚

  52. Hey Daniel, I’m truly happy for you. It’s promising to see young people like yourself achieving their dreams and living for what is truly important. I wish I had found my passion at such an early stage in my life! Not that I don’t enjoy my life and what I do now, but it’s taking longer than I would think to ‘take action’ now that I’m older. However, I am now ‘training’ my own children to see the best in life. To enjoy life, to think positive and to live with mindfulness. Like my now 6 year old would say, ‘mind like water’ (he’s a big fan of Bruce Lee). You are the vivid example of how I would love my children to live. All the best! You’ve got yourself another follower! Keep up with the AMAZING posts πŸ˜‰

  53. Well thanks! πŸ™‚ oh and btw I am extremely jealous you live in California!

  54. Daniel Dow says:

    Hi Kay! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment πŸ™‚ Yes I am def conscious and aware of my body and am very passionate about health and nutrition! Yes as a massage therapist and athlete it is very important to take care of your body. I see you are with Herbalife, i have a few friends with them as well. I do take supplements and I am act a Distributor for Nu Skin! πŸ™‚ I am just not promoting on this blog and am planning on making a blog for that in the near future!

  63. Looks like you got smart very young;) Wellness is definitely the place to be so many people need us & our products. You did not mention nutritional products so I guess, I just assume you are using supplements. It definitely fits with being a massage therapist.
