When I was 17 years old I got my first tattoo. I gathered up enough strength to walk up to the tattoo place, hand the artist my ID clearly saying I wasn’t 18 yet and ask for a tattoo of the word “fearless” on the inside of my middle finger. Truth be told I think I had so much conviction that the artist didn’t even question my age enough to look at the ID. He just made a photocopy and took me back to the chair.
I laugh a bit about this now because nearly 12 years later I know that the fearlessness I was searching for doesn’t actually exist. At the time I was searching for a reminder when I wanted to hit a big jump on my snowboard that I was going to be ok... that I “had it”... and being fearless seemed like the solution....
Here’s what I’ve learned though, fear isn’t the problem and it isn’t going anywhere. While I’ll likely never hit a big jump on my board ever again the fear comes up in other places... letting go of a “safe” career to follow my heart... public speaking... pouring my heart into words and putting it out there for the world to see and judge... making big scary steps towards goals with the total possibility of failing...
Sometimes our fears protect us... physiologically they’re designed to keep us alive. But more often than not these fears bubble up and we give them so much power that we stay small... and we play small with our lives...
I wish I could tell you that becoming fearless is the answer... I really do. But in reality I think what we are looking for when we seek to be fearless is actually strength... it’s courage. In a momentary boost of courage we can make a small decision that changes the whole trajectory of our lives... even if it’s just to prove to ourselves, for once, we are stronger then we think we are.
So cheers to being brave. Cheers to looking at that “thing” whatever it is and taking a big breath and saying, “I’ve got this”. Cheers to fear... and cheers to courage.
I don’t think I’ve ever gotten more “Where are your boots from?” comments or DMs about any other pair of shoes before. I swear I could write a caption where I pour my heart out but if I’m wearing these bad boys I’ll get WAY more comments about my boots than about anything I wrote lol
It’s ok, I don’t blame you. They are pretty cute. These boots are called the Everson from @bionicashoes and I’ve ended up wearing them almost every day since I got them. They have become my go-to’s for a few reasons:
First is their functionality (of course). They are fully waterproof and have great tread which is ESSENTIAL if you are living in the mountains in the winter! Second is the style. They go well with pretty much anything… from what I wear to yoga to what I wear out to dinner... casual or a little dressier. And lastly, the convenience/comfort. They are the comfiest booties I own AND they have a zipper on the inside so they are SUPER easy to take on and off. This may seem like a small thing but when I’m running out the door quickly (which is most of the time) I always end up choosing what’s easy.
I know the holidays are coming up quick so if you are looking for a great gift idea or maybe a little gift to yourself feel free to use the code “arielle20” for 20% your entire @bionicashoes order. I love how many of you have sent me pics of your “Arielle Inspired” gear/outfits. Are any of you going to be twinning with me? (photo by @photograferg) #bionicaventures#bionicapartner

Rock 'N' Roll 🖤🔥!! #Climbing 🦎 #CollDeNargo
Yesterday was raining up to 2.300m, super windy, snow and avalanches conditions were bad, so we catched some sun at Coll de Nargó 🦎!!
Que le temps passe vite, tu as déjà tellement changé pendant ce court laps de temps et à chaque fois que tu nous souris cela efface les longues nuits et les -légers- désagréments de l’après grossesse.
Tu es notre évidence. 🐣❤️
Good morning! What adventures are you looking forward to this weekend?

After spending a month in Siurana, I’m now driving north again. I will miss this place 💚 and for sure come back some day! (Stronger and with a good elbow 😛) At the same time if feels good to leave. Time for some change ☺️ First I will have a few weeks with family in Sweden, and then it’s about time to go to Narvik and get all the winter gear out! ⛏ #climbingallyeararound#climbinglife
Именно так называлась наша школа @kp_mountainclub в Шерегеше)
Хочу рассказать чем Новый формат школы отличается от стандартного❗️
1. Впервые❗️ мы взяли на себя организацию проживания и питания для групп по фрирайду - и это прямо класс. Мы жили дружной большой компанией в уютном домике в Шерегеше🏠 (см. последнее фото), и это было максимально весело и эффективно. Это такое нескончаемое Апрески прямо у тебя дома )))
2. Катание на ратраках 🚍! Это было нереально круто: 6-8 спусков в день по нетронутому снегу в долине реки Викторьевка. С проживанием на базе, с баней и прочими прелестями жизни в тайге🌲.
3. Мы посвятили примерно 30% времени технике - остальное - каталка🏂⛷. Собственно, поэтому мы и назвали этот Фрирайд БЕЗУДЕРЖНЫМ, так как каталки было оооочень много! Все 5 дней откатали на 100%.
🔻Конечно, такая школа требовательна к вашим физическим возможностям: нужна выносливость и базовые знания техники. Иначе можно не успеть взорвать весь паудер). Но, всегда есть вариант зарулить в бар !👌😜
🔻есть идея на следующий год к такой школе подготовить раздаточный материал по методике и подготовке, как думаете, зайдёт ?! ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀

Explored the Harz mountains yesterday and the Brocken Mountain is covered in fresh snow. Couldn’t resist to take the old steam train all the way up. 🚂
Adventuring with my new #SwatchPay by @swatch which made buying the train tickets easy peasy lemon squeezy. More about it in today’s stories 🙏🏼 (Werbung)

This place though 😍
Climbs that take three days. Village children running out to scream namaste 🙏. Birds of prey circling overhead. Views that make my heart stop. Bumpy windy gnarly tracks. Old ladies with stories to tell. Mind blowing history. And then more climbing. 🏔️
I'm loving soaking up this place. The Nepalese Himalayas are so special, and every day out here has been filled with life-affirming moments of awe and gratitude. I'm already trying to work out how soon I can come back 🇳🇵❤️

Un début de saison parfait. Nous avons vraiment profité de cette neige. Ski de Rando, première sortie en raquettes...
Nous avons la neige, il nous manque juste un peu de soleil pour les prochains jours🙂. Les conditions changent en montagne mais il faut s’adapter
One of my head guides, has spent the last few weeks scouting new trekking areas in a spectacular corner of Tibet that we have longed to explore for many years now. Today, he sent me this somewhat grainy photo (snapped on his crappy old phone) via wechat, with the words - 'what do you think, looks quite good!' No kidding! If winter wasn't closing in, I'd be jumping on the very next plane! Oh well, one to keep in the back pocket and recce in 2020. Can't wait. #hitthejackpot
