AT YOUR BEST ~ Adriene


Tell us why you felt at your best in this moment:

2010 was a tough year for me—in fact, one of the most trying years of my young life. I had lost my job in the middle of an awful recession, my grandfather had a mild stroke and several bad car accidents, and my grandmother was diagnosed with stage IV endometrial cancer. There were many times where I could have just given up. This picture was taken on December 11, 2010 at my 26th birthday party. Despite all of the troubles of the past year, my eternal optimistic spirit never allowed me to give up. Even with all the tears, pain, and heartache, I was still joyful and most importantly, still smiling!

How do you define beauty:

Beauty is being comfortable with who you are. There is no desire to be anything else than what you truly are.

How do you define happiness:

Happiness to me is that moment when you take a deep breath and look around and realize that everything is just as it should be. You wouldn’t change one thing about the path you took to get to that very moment.

What lies before us and what lies behind us are small matters compared to what lies within us. And when we bring what is within out into the world, miracles happen." -- Henry David Thoreau
