Welcome to TheAdaptive.org!


My name is Holly Dains and I am one of the minds behind theadaptive.org.

First off, let me say I am so glad you could stop by for a visit! If you’re interested in photography, music, spirituality, global consciousness, life, ya know.. anything and everything that will help in spreading peace, obtaining or maintaining inner peace, then you’ve come to the right place!

My goal is to share my journey of how I went from a little girl with lots of energy and unknown anxiety issues to a mom/wife with depression, to a confident, at ease individual. I went from caring what anyone and everyone thought, to realizing that what I felt inside was all that really mattered. I used to think that the people around me dictated how I felt. When I finally snapped out of it after being so ill that It was get better or get dead, I delved deep into the inter-webs, did monstrous amounts of soul searching and research, and emerged a butterfly, having sloughed off my insecurities and falsities that my upbringing had pre-programmed in me and many of us have the same realizations to make. 

I am not claiming inter-galactic-oneness. I am fully aware that we are always works in progress and now I am able to enjoy the challenges that life brings my way. I am the student and the universe is my teacher. I accept the lessons I am to learn. I am also aware that everyone is different and though, we are all connected, I understand that no two souls are identical and that is what makes us wonderfully beautiful, each in our own way.

We’re still working on our consciously creative ideas, so while this site is still being built, you can head over to theadaptive.net to check out our music and photography side of things.
