Own it. Own who you are, your experiences, your failures, your successes, your dreams, your aspirations, your fears, your weaknesses, your strengths. Own it! Then accept that you cannot achieve your goals alone and that for every one of your “negatives” there’s someone for whom that is a “positive”. Connect and move the culture forward. #strengthinnumbers#church
I long windy road - behind us and ahead of us full of trial and error or as Bob Dylan said “troubles and battles” however, which lead to “paths of victory” -
And those of us who are daring enough to move forward into uncharted territory - to travel along a path unknown - a path we must blindly trust - we are never quite the same person as we were the day before... and that’s the good news. Keep trucking, wanderers 🏜

Exactly 17 years ago this Powerhouse of a Woman rolled into my hospital room days after I had been transported into the realm of the paralyzed from a horrific car accident that rendered me a "Quadriplegic". Instantly after this injury doctors were prodding, picking & doing their "usual" assessment to "classify me" or "label me" a certain way due to my "paralysis". I noticed nurses & a few therapist would only look at my medical files & diagnosis what I could or could NOT do based on what the Dr. wrote in those charts. You see I started being "LABELED" & "JUDGED" on my abilities due to what the "medical" systems "way of thinking" was based on studies & statistics. Deep down inside I knew that NO MATTER WHAT ANYONE WAS GOING TO SAY: it WAS NOT GOING TO MANIFEST into my ABILITIES to be an UNSTOPPABLE MACHINE. This idea was CONFIRMED the moment I met my Best Friend, Soul Sister Miss Auti Angel. Oh yeahhh Miracles at first sight! Haha. I knew immediately WE were going to tear it up together, but first I had to go down my OWN JOURNEY of PARALYSIS to witness first hand the "stereotypes" society & media placed on folks in wheelchairs. I KNEW something had to be DONE. 3 years after my paralysis I reunited w/ Auti & shared how I was inspired to make a change. WE needed to do "something" to make a Shift in the way society viewed people w/ disabilities. I stuck to my VISION & 8 years later I created & produced the "Push Girls" reality TV show (w/ @autiangel @miaschaikewitz @tiphanyadamsfitness & @chelsiehill) on the Sundance Channel w/ David Hurwitz & Gay Rosenthal. Words have the power to destroy but with Education & Awareness You Can shatter those labels, and this is the very reason I support the #BeBoundless18 campaign by @chelsiehill & her team the @rollettes_la! Join the movement & keep fighting for what YOU believe in... Don't let Words, Labels, Stereotypes or Society dictate your Ultimate Potentials because within each of us is an Indomitable Spirit that can ATTAIN & DO ANYTHING being #BOUNDLESS beyond measures! ✨✨🛸✨✨ #BeBoundless#AngelaRockwood#RollingEmpire
This morning’s “coffee with a shot of gratitude”... light reading. 👆🏻👆🏻👆🏻 totally a joke! Ever take on a book you are certain will make a huge impact on you, but avoid starting it because it’s content is massive, in both page count and meaning and it literally feels like committing to a relationship? That’s where I am at with this. I do appreciate that I have come to know myself in a way that I am able to recognize why this 534 page book filled with tiny text, that requires a glossary, finds it’s way back to the shelf.
I want to live simply. I want to sit by the window when it snows and read books I'll never be tested on. I want to paint because I want to, not because I've got something to prove. I want to listen to my body, fall asleep when the moon is high and wake up slowly, with no place to rush off to. I want not to be governed by money or clocks or any of the artificial restraints that humanity imposes on itself. I just want to be, boundless and infinite. #livesimply#window#snow#book#tea#candle#view#live#boundless#infinite
Today at the @abilities_expo was so amazing I still can’t believe it happened! Honestly, being able to meet so many other women close to my age in wheelchairs (like @uwalk_iglide) was such a life-changing thing. I really needed this right now because I’ve been feeling really alone lately and it’s just super nice to know that there are other people just like me dealing with similar things to what I deal with. Also, I met 2 other ladies with Transverse Myelitis (@christina_chambers and @catherinelliott) which was like the craziest thing ever (I totally almost cried, it was overwhelming). Anyway, I’m feeling super empowered now after spending time with so many strong women, so watch out world! Thanks to everyone else I got to meet today and especially @rollettes_la! #beboundless18#abilitiesexpo#rollettes
Progressing the Squat For Youth Athletes
Part 3 of 3 .
In today’s video, we’re bringing you our last exercise for progressing a youth athlete through a squat, with a Trapbar Squat. The Trapbar Squat is a good next step in between a Goblet Squat and a Loaded Back Squat because of the decreased amount of force placed in the spine and low back compared to a BB Back Squat. In the Trapbar Squat, the spine is still being loaded to a degree so that the extensor and stabilizer muscles are still being trained but with much less stress and force making it a perfect exercise for youth athletes. .
Have the athlete perform 3-5 sets of anywhere from 3-12 reps (depending on goals and desired training effects). You can also add tempos and pauses to progress the movement (again, just depending on goals and desires training effects) .
You guys know I’m alllll about crystals😍💎💫, but WTF is the crystal hype all about⁉️
They are no doubt beautiful, but what’s their purpose, how do they work, and can you have too many? 🧐
Check out my latest article for @fableandmatter (link in bio!) to get the scoop on what the current crystal craze is all about🔮💫 It will rock your world 😜💥#fableandmatter#boundless
I absolutely adore this campaign and how this #unique#sisterhood i am now apart of is changing the game for our #community . The term being #boundless is all about being limitless and it is all about #empoweringwomen#empowerinng men and our youth all affected somehow with how we are put down and perceived in the world. Physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally. We need to help educate the people of today’s society. It is slowly changing thanks to the power of #positivity and #socialmedia To me being boundless is just like the pure energy that we are. We are expanding consciousness full of love and light that cannot be destroyed. Remember the mountains and valleys that got you here, we are not accidents we all have our strengths, a purpose and a voice. We are not bound to anything because we are constantly changing, growing, evolving, we are breathing and we are living wrapped in beautiful boundless grace. You will have your bad days but you must remember tomorrow the sun will shine things will get better and there will be more added to you from yesterday. The Rollettes and Lil Sisters are inviting friends, the community and wheelchair influencers across the globe to get involved. The goal is to make a big splash to inspire and motivate to Live Independent - Whether it's physical, mental or emotional.
1. Write Be Boundless on a white paper,
2. Hold it up and take a photo
3. Then write a caption on how you are working toward living an independent life. Add the #beboundless18 tag @rollettes_la we’d love to hear your voice on how you are boundless.
