#strengthandvulnerability

MOST RECENT

Danielle from Sleeping Beauty. Exploring my unconscious to consider notions of longing and regret, belonging and alienation, strength and vulnerability. My photographs deliberate the things we hide and the secrets we keep. #emotions #states #balance #expectations #promises #intensityandrestraint #strengthandvulnerability #longingandregrets #belongingandalienation #women #emotionalstates @dchaluts A huge thank you to all the beautiful women - friends, students, colleagues and daughter of course and daughters friends ๐Ÿ˜˜ who pose for me. You are all amazing ๐Ÿงก

As always I'm totally inspired by the #strengthandvulnerability that the students I visit at NYU exhibit in their projects. This is in no doubt due to the incredible intelligence and generosity of the professor. So honored to be invited back to work with her students and be a part of it. Just a touch of what some did.

Have you read anything by Brene Brown?? Sheโ€™s a champ at explaining how to practice vulnerability as a strength. Every time I notice someone in my life (unknowingly) use her methods, I feel so grateful for that personโ€™s ability to connect. โค๏ธ Thankful tonight for a new friend & all the graces of Divine Mercy Sunday. Consider yourself prayed for! โ€˜Cause I tried to mention each & every person Iโ€™ve ever known to God during a 3 oโ€™clock prayer hour... #strengthandvulnerability

A yoga asana doesnโ€™t fully show your true strength or sense of self. Strength is allowing yourself to be vulnerable and move forward despite what is going in your mind or around you. I love headstand and for me this really does help me feel my strengths, Iโ€™ve had an interesting week of ego and body talk & the last 3 weeks with a sore back meant I had to step away from certain exercises. I felt strong and well enough to do this today and I have to say it felt different I engaged from a new place so my head was just slightly on the mat. This pose always reminds me that I am much stronger than my ego suggests & if I keep showing up with this same feeling off my mat and allow myself to be that beacon of love & light that I feel within I will radiate and allow others to radiate too. Feeling blessed and whole today ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ

I was never athletic growing up. I lived in my head and related to my body like it was an awkward suitcase I dragged around. As an adult I found yoga and it thankfully taught me so much about listening to my self and getting comfortable being uncomfortable.
So I encourage my daughters to live in their bodies, to push themselves past their comfort zones and to express their strength and vulnerability. They inspire me every day. #proudmama #splits #momofteenagers #strengthandvulnerability #yoga #everydamnday

In my previous Frida inspired post, I mentioned something about vulnerability. So here is mine: I have scoliosis.
Although it may not be visible in this picture, the lower part of my spine is about 20 degrees off. This results in all sorts of issues such as bad posture, weak hips and glutes, as well as constant tightness of the muscles around my lower back. My left leg is always tight since it extends further than my right. Whatโ€™s worse is that thereโ€™s a slight curve in my neck to compensate for the curve in my back. This limits my neck mobility about 60%. Needless to say, Iโ€™m kind of a mess!
So, why do I Crossfit then?
Thanks to Crossfit, my posture has improved, my abs are stronger and can therefore support my curved spine, my glutes and hips are finally firing and relieving the pressure off my back, and my flexibility is better than when I was just running and doing yoga.
Are there days that I feel that old pain coming back as I deadlift or snatch? Yes, of course, but instead of treating my scoliosis as a weakness, I embrace it as the vulnerability that is a part of me. Since it is a part of me, I must work with it and not against it.
I must warm up well every time...I must watch my form every time...I must learn to set aside ego and go with less weight on the heavy lifts...I must stretch after every workout...and I must continue to do my physical therapy exercises as often as I can.
Hereโ€™s to allowing our vulnerabilities to remain a part of us, to allowing that nagging voice to tell us to slow down or push harder when we feel good, and to continuing to build our strength by listening to our bodies, even when theyโ€™re not perfect.

Frida Kahlo never shied away from embracing both her strength and vulnerability. She expressed this in many of her self-portraits, daring to confront the woman staring back at her with those questioning eyes. I can only emulate the force that was, and still is, Frida, by allowing myself to celebrate the results of my hard work and dedication to becoming a stronger, more confident woman. Iโ€™ll never shy away from it, and will, in fact, bask in the imperfections, take on the challenges, perhaps cry along the way, but always remain open to the world of new experiences. Frida got my back! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป ๐ŸŒบ #fridakahlo #inspired #strongwomenunite #strengthandvulnerability #empowerment #selfportraits #postworkoutselfie #postwodselfie #bathroomselfie #crossfitback #celebrateyourself #whatwouldfridado #crossfitgirls #fitnessmotivation #crossfitworks #neverbeafraid #fitnessambassador #juststrongclothing #fnxambassador

Sometimes life is black and white, vertical and horizontal, rock and water.
And sometimes I find myself standing delicately between the two in an exhilarating dance that blurs those hard and fast lines.
And there, I find a moment in which strength IS vulnerability and fear IS confidence.
Hanging on the edge of the Mediterranean Sea as dawn rose around us, I couldnโ€™t stop smiling. .

BAARE: beauty, authentic alignment, radical experience ๐Ÿ’ฎ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿต๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒธ hosted by @bespokecurry @ashrahmadon @barebygenevieve and I ~ we envisioned this gathering to create an intimate space for black women of all shades, sizes and vibes, that's judgement free, where we are able to love on each other, be vulnerable, soft, and allow ourselves to be seen. Radical self care means making loving yourself sacred, as well as allowing yourself to receive love and support, in a safe space. It is powerful to recognize yourself in someone else's story and relate to each other's experience and views. Especially for women of color. #BAARE #daretobaare #beautyauthenticallyalignedthrougharadicalexperience #womenupliftingotherwomen #womensupportingwomen #selfcare #justbaare #selflove #shineon #createaspace #strengthinnumbers #weareallbeautiful #droppingknowledge #strengthandvulnerability #beyou #betrue #weightofthecrown
