There is freedom in vulnerability.
I remember the moment I decided to lower my guard and allow people in my process as I dealt with different issues, I experienced so much freedom and breakthrough. Shame was completely broken off my life!
There is something empowering about being vulnerable and authentic.
Vulnerability is not weakness but strength.
I like what Brene Brown says,"We cultivate love when we allow our most vulnerable and powerful selves to be deeply seen and known, and when we honor the spiritual connection that grows from that offering with trust, respect, kindness and affection."
Don't be afraid or be ashamed to share your story or your issues. So what if you're struggling with sexual issues or addictions? Everyone has issues! Different ones.
Invite people into your process, there's power in accountability. And by inviting people in, I mean share with a close friend or a mentor, someone who can help walk through the process with you.
Don't fight alone.
Shame thrives in silence but F R E E D OM comes from vulnerability! “Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ.”
‭Galatians 6:2‬


This might be the first phase of "face your fears/test your limits in your forties" for me, but I am going WAY out of my comfort zone with many, many things right now. Two years ago, I got the moxy to start my own teacher training program, this year I opened my own studio (actually yesterday), and today I submitted my entry for The Next Pilates Anytime Teacher Contest 2017!
Check out my video to get some tips on breath work and alignment for the ab series.
Thank you J.D. Kobow for being such a wonderful student!!! xoxo

"Because there's one thing stronger than magic: sisterhood." ✨✨✨ #tbt @spiritweavers gathering last month ~ When Ruby wasn't busy making her own sandals, herbal dying scarves, weaving or in the sauna with @natalie.anahita.stone @_barbaraw @roseholistic @tingocean @gypsetsarita, then she was most definitely with her new #bff Sage. There was an instant heart💗connection between these two; this little love wrote #rubybea a heartfelt letter on the second day after meeting, scrawled in 7-year old writing: "I want you to know that I hope you will be my best friend," and a friendship bracelet was enclosed. Watching Ruby open it and the way her eyes and whole being lit up - it was magical.
What if we all put our hearts longing, our hopes so vulnerably out there? Well in this case, Ruby wrote her a sweet love letter right back. And she still wears the bracelet on her wrist, a symbol of their sisterhood. 💗💗💗
My challenge for YOU today: Write someone a love letter - I DARE you to. (Extra points if it's a real pen and paper, not via text!😍) #sisterhood #vulnerabilityisbeautiful

I went out with some girlfriends last night and we had a soul chat.
It's kept me thinking today and I have to share what's on my heart.
Why do we harshly critique?
Why do we troll?
Why do we bully?
Why do we gossip?
Why do we spew negativity?
These are all varying degrees of unease with oneself.
Basically, you've got a problem with yourself and you're being an ass to discharge it.
And I've been there. I've done all those things. I've been uneasy with myself and had a problem with it.
And because I didn't have the maturity to do better, I put that problem onto others.
It sucks saying all this, it feels gross really. But why it feels gross is not because I am ashamed of it, or because I feel like an awful human being.
(Although that was part of it at one point)
It feels gross because that doesn't fit me today.
It feels gross because I've been on the other side of those behaviours and it's heartbreaking.
And saying those things feels gross because it's like looking at an old sweater that I loved that I realize now is glaringly ugly, unflattering and doesn't fit whatsoever.
And as gross as I feel looking at that sweater--I also embrace it.
Because, as humans, we are dynamic and ever changing.
And we make mistakes.
(And that's okay.)
Learning from those mistakes is something to be aimed for.
The maturity I lacked so severely then I have worked so hard to cultivate now.
Because that journey lead me to the massive realizations I try my best to live my life by currently:
I will contribute more than I criticize.
I will spread kindness wherever I can.
I will choose courage over comfort.
Whew. Had to put that out there today. ❤️
(Actively trying to choose courage over comfort.)

There is nothing more vulnerable than creativity. I have always admired the artists, composers, musicians, actors, dancers.. creators of any kind! You dig deep into your heart, create something with love, and then place it into the world for others to view and enjoy. The vulnerability involved in that process is so beautiful.
I've been playing the piano since age 3. When I play piano on the Miss America stage, I'm excited to open my heart and invite your spirit in to be vulnerable and open to enjoy the music 😊 #missalaska #missamerica #vulnerabilityisbeautiful #piano #talent

People always say that life never hands you more than you can handle. Sometimes I wonder if that's true or not. I've always believed that everything happens for a reason, it's just waiting for that reason.... #vulnerabilityisbeautiful #selfportrait #photography #life #blackandwhite


For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.(Isaiah 55 8-9)•

I had a gentle reminder while driving today, oh how sweet and loving the spirit reminded and marked my heart. Starting up this journey of exposing who I am and Empowering people to be who they are meant to be. I started loosing the sight of my purpose because I felt the need to compare myself to the million mom bloggers, social network, lifestyle bloggers with millions of followers that had perfect pictures with perfect captions. I was consumed by the many "get your business started, gain more social media followers, be a momprenuer, make more money." But there was nothing that spoke to being Real, being Authentic. His message went like this. "Trust in me Adri, I have great things for you. You are not confined in the amount of followers or social status. What matters most is the HEARTS you speak to. Come to me, follow me, you have a Message to share and I am using you to touch many lives here on earth. I Will make BIG things happen trust in my time." 💖. My sweet Friends, when you put god first everything else will fall into place.✨ •

[ r e s p e c t ]

I got this free shirt from a campus committee called Love Pono back at Leeward. This group focuses on building and maintaining healthy relationships through education, counseling, intervention, etc.
Whenever I wear this shirt, I go through a roller coaster of emotions and feelings. I'm proud. I'm ashamed. I'm powerful. I'm weak. I'm resilient.
It's a welcoming reminder of my past. Odd as that sounds, I'm reminded of the times where I felt depressed, lost, and unworthy of love, but I'm also reminded of my strength to work through these struggles.
For years, I've been silent about my experiences with sexual violence. I was so embarrassed, like it was my fault that these men took advantage of me. I was afraid that no one would believe me. I was a child and teenager and I just didn't know any better. Or that I should have stood up for myself and it's not considered rape because I was in college and he was my boyfriend. However, days like this, remind me that it's okay to speak up.
Some may think of my daily exercise routines as nothing special, but exercise and taking care of my body are huge parts in my healing journey. For a long time, I hated my body. I often wished I could be disconnected from it because I constantly felt violated. I'm learning to love, appreciate, and respect my body through exercise, eating well, and practicing self love.

It's not always easy, but life is too short to not find the good in every situation.

I’m not perfect.

I have doubt sometimes, fear that this isn’t working, fear that no one is listening or that no one is hearing my message.

I believe in what I am doing so much but sometimes I doubt myself, if I can really do this.

If I really have the capabilities and qualities to not only lead others but to lead myself.

I put my heart and soul into everything I do and sharing that makes me completely vulnerable.

But I know in my heart, deep in the depths of my soul that this vulnerability is my gift to the world.

Being raw and real and showing people the true journey to self-actualization, not plastering pictures of my “perfect" life.

Being vulnerable is the thing I have struggled with the most in life. •
I used to put barriers and walls up, but now I see the beauty in it and see why I have gone through the experiences I have in life.

To show others that vulnerability is beautiful and not to feel like they have to be perfect.

Whatever your biggest struggle is is the thing you are meant to help people through here on earth.

It is your soul’s purpose and your guiding light.

Don’t shy away from it.

Embrace it and let it lead you down the path of least resistance to your highest self and your true calling in life.

I know this is a lot to ask because it is hard to admit what we most struggle with, but I would love to know.

What do you think is your struggle that you are meant to share with the world?

This is a safe space with no judgments, just raw, real authenticity.

Share with us your gift. Comment it below and we will send you positive energy and hold space for you to manifest it.

Love you and talk soon.

It gets to 💯 real quick here. From on demand nursing, putting toys away, snacking, bathing, brushing teeth tantrums to signing unnecessary papers, school fundraisers, homework. To dealing with my son being suspended from school and getting a taste of the social media world that my bigger kids are in. Trying to have a self care moment, a good cry in my tub filled with stress away and lavender then having this little fella inviting himself in because he took a late nap. Yeah, Adri in Fear is here because Life gets overwhelming physically and mentally and I've dealt with both today. I look forward too tomorrow. This is when I go over the things I know. I don't make meaning to the thoughts I'm creating they are lies. Those aren't my truth. •

It is fairly easy to choose trust and love when things are going well in your life, but it gets extremely difficult when your life falls apart (which it will on occasion). It can even stay fallen apart for long periods of time. You might start to feel that life is against you instead of a perfect process to serve you. The universe uses every experience I have to help you grow and learn. No experience is wasted. Every choice I make and everything that happens to me, because of other people’s choices become my perfect lessons. As you learn to trust this truth, you will experience less fear and more peace.

Why Knee Sleeves?
✨ This was my first time using the @mbslingshot STrong Knee Sleeves, and they are STIFF! I'm not sure what I was expecting, but it wasn't all that shaky, wobbling on that first rep! After I felt that, I slowed down for my second rep (still wobbled, but not quiet as much). I'm sure they'll feel much better after I break them in a bit.
So, back to my question, why knee sleeves?
There are multiple reasons you can use knee sleeves, for example:
• Powerlifters typically use them to support their knee stability in heavy squats/leg training. (Usually stiffer/more rigid)
• Weightlifters typically use sleeves for light support and warmth. (Not as thick/rigid because because they need to maintain mobility in order to catch weight in the bottom of a squat)
• Crossfitters will use a sleeve that fits their specific needs, i.e., it depends. 😉
• And they can also be used just to keep your joints warm.
Keep in mind that this is a very general explanation, so please do your research to ensure you get the right sleeves for you. 👌🏼

To my friends who keep me hanging high, you know who you are, and well you're pretty much my most favorite of all time in the history of ever. Thanks for the adventures, may they be everlasting. ❤️

Vulnerability is liberating for all.
Vulnerability requires compassion.
You have to be compassionate towards yourself to share your story and hold space for others.
Relationships are only as deep, authentic, and real as you want them to be. 🌸 Get vulnerable, embrace compassion and let yourself be free.
@liananaima for kinder words.

The shit that makes your heart beat faster, and your eyes glow when you do it or talk about it, no matter if it’s bodybuilding, CrossFit, hiking, yoga, painting, photography, sex, writing, helping others, or simply spending time with someone special…DO THAT!✨(Or even if it means being a rebel and doing a pistol on top of a sign that you shouldn't have been on top of...🤷🏻‍♀️)✨ And do it as often as you can because that’s what life is about - creating as many passionate, happy moments as possible.
Don’t let anyone stop you from doing the things you love - not even yourself. 👊🏼
