“If you’ve been to Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, you know how incredible it is. Noosa’s beaches are treasures of the surf world–treasures of the non-surf world, for that matter. @savethewavescoalition cemented their protection by officially declaring the four-kilometer stretch of pristine waves the 10th World Surfing Reserve. ‘It’s a tremendous honor and a great way to preserve what we have for future generations,’ said Phil Jarratt, a Noosa National Surfing Reserve committee member. Noosa joins Snapper Rocks and Manly Beach in Australia, Malibu and Santa Cruz in California, Bahia Todos Santos in Mexico, Punta de Lobos in Chile, Huanchaco in Peru, Ericeira in Portugal, and Guardo do Embau in Brazil. World Surfing Reserves are awarded to places with environmental and cultural significance, and Noosa more than fit the bill. The designation will ensure beach management and protection for the beaches and five breaks between the Noosa River and Sunshine Beach. They’re chosen after looking at things like the consistency of the waves, local history, and environmental characteristics. ‘It gives us a seat at the table to discuss issues related to beach and coastal management,’ Jarratt told @abcnews. ‘Especially when it relates to things that might damage the surf breaks.’” - The Inertia’s Alexander Haro

I saw this on Facebook today and it is just bang on the money.
I had a not great morning mentally this morning, and I'm on holidays!!!!! Why??? Because I spent the morning by the pool in my swimmers (yep should have been great) mentally beating myself up about my imperfections, mainly my not perfectly flat stomach. Seriously!!!!!!!!!! Rather than enjoying myself and being in the moment with my kiddies I was mentally tearing shreds off myself for not having rock hard abs like many women I follow on Insta. Well that needs to bloody change!!!!!!! I took a good hard look at myself in the mirror, I told myself I am proud of my Unique Body, it is frigging beautiful just as it is, & I encourage anyone out there feeling this way to do the same! There's nothing wrong with wanting to be fitter, healthier & stronger but there is something wrong with beating ourselves up because we arnt perfect.
