    #emPOWERed Women Empower Women

    Here at Momentum, we smile pretty big when our products go out into the world and make a difference. Search #momentumjewelry on Instagram and you'll get picture after picture of our Motivate Wraps inspiring people to rise above the challenges they face. It's an honor to be a part of those journeys, and in some cases, it's our pleasure to partner with those individuals. Today, we'd like to share Rachel Goldman and Michele Gordon's story with you.

    Rachel is a clinical psychologist in New York City and a devoted Momentum Ambassador. She recently partnered with Michele Gordan, creator of Cardio Sweat Party, to create #emPOWERed, an event series and femme community that celebrates the strength of women. When Rachel and Michele presented their event to us and asked for our participation, our answer was a very big "yes."

    Influenced in part by the #metoo movement, #emPOWERed events provide women with the support they need to feel confident. It's an effort to stop women from holding back, because now is the time for women to live their lives as powerfully as they can. So at every #emPOWEREDevent, women come together to celebrate each other through a Cardio Sweat Party class with Michele, and group chats about self-care—but #emPOWERed is quickly turning into so much more. 

    #emPOWERed is now a community of like-minded women who are out in the world doing big things. And yet, they are still making time to do what energizes them and feeds their soul. And that, essentially, is the essence of what we here at Momentum see our followers doing, too.

    Rachel says, "I have seen firsthand the power of women, the power of support, and the power of women in numbers. Together, we can do anything." And we firmly believe in that statement.

    At the start of each event, Rachel and Michelle encourage their participants to make a new friend. Michelle explains that "you never know who you'll meet, and who will understand whatever it is that you're going through...empowered women empower women and we all need support." 

    Another way one can feel inspired and empowered: Daily reminders that create the motivation to continue. And that's our specialty, because when the motivation is on your wrist, it becomes easier to harness inspiration throughout one's day.

    Remember, together...we can do anything.

    Guest Post: You are inspiring someone, it's true.

    Here at Momentum, inspiration is our thing. It's why we assembled a team of Ambassadors. They are true masters of inspiration, and they spread our message with every Motivate Wrap they wear...and share with others! Sometimes they know how inspiring they are, sometimes they don't even realize it. It is, after all, totally possible to inspire someone without even trying to. We'll let one of our Ambassadors, Tera Busker, explain this to you:

    I was recently scrolling through Instagram and an image of a quote caught my eye. It said "Be strong, you never know who you are inspiring."  As I looked at it, I couldn't help but wonder how many people I've inspired without even realizing it. Think about it! And then, think about how many times you've stepped outside of your own comfort zone, tried something new or pushed yourself to be better because of what you saw another person do.

    The power of being able to knowingly motivate someone with your words and actions is an incredible gift, but when you do it without even realizing it—that's a blessing. By just being you, you've made an impact on another person.

    A few years ago, someone made an impact on me and I"ll never forget it. I was running a half marathon that I swore I'd never run again. All of my experiences with this particular race were awful, but there I was again...running it for the 4th time and questioning everything.

    It was a cold, Spring day and the weather was less than desirable. The race was on a muddy gravel trail, and there was nothing to look at but the path in front of me (and an occasional cow). It was a small race with an out-and-back course. I hit the halfway mark and was done. Completely done. I was over the cold, rain, mud and lack of scenery. I was basically running alone and my shoes were ruined. I literally wanted to cry. Then I picked my head up and saw the ponytail.

    I was so excited to see another runner, so I picked up the pace a bit to catch up with her. As I got closer, it felt like her ponytail was hypnotizing me, and I was able to relax into a good pace. She eventually started to pull away from me, but I was determined to keep up, so I picked up the pace. 

    She pulled away again, and we settled into what felt like a game of cat and mouse. The harder I tried to catch up with her, the faster she ran until we reached the final stretch of the race and were side-by-side. We looked at each other and sprinted to the finish.

    After the finish, I collected myself and approached her. Before I could say anything, she said to me: "That was an amazing race. Thank you so much for pushing me! I could hear you behind me and I tried so hard to stay ahead of you, but you kept coming for me. And to finish right next to you—that was awesome!"

    And here I thought she was inspiring me! I thanked her for the race, and then we had a brief chat. She had been hoping for a PR that day, but wasn't into the race. But once we started running "together," she got her spark back—and so did I.

    Here's the takeaway: There are days when the things you do seem effortless and bring you incredible joy. And there are days when those things feel like a chore and you question everything—but that's when you must be strong because those are the days where you might find yourself inspiring someone to be strong, too.

    If you like to inspire others, we'd like you to consider joining our team of Ambassadors. Applications will be opened on January 19th and 20th! CLICK HERE to fill one out. 

    Guest Post: New year, new goals!

    Another year is ahead of us, and from all of us here at Momentum, we sincerely hope good things await you. Whether you're making resolutions, coming up with goals or setting intentions—believe that 2018 is yours for the taking, and grab onto it with a zestful belief in yourself. To help you step off the year on the right foot, Kelli Hashimoto of Run Happy Eat Happy is here with a few of our favorite Momentum mantras. 

    The start of a new year is the perfect opportunity to hit the reset button. Maybe you committed to living a healthier lifestyle, or maybe you registered for your first marathon. For me, 2017 was the year to run a marathon in less than four hours—I was so excited to reach that goal! This year, I will be chasing a 3:50 marathon time goal. I am also committing to a more sustainable and balanced diet. While this will not be easy, I am excited for the challenge.

    My collection of Momentum Jewelry helped me reach my goal last year, and the same mantras will hopefully help me reach my goals again this year. Maybe they will help you, too:

    1. Dream Big We all know this Walt Disney quote: "if you can dream it, you can do it." So strive for a goal that is attainable, but dream big because you might even surprise yourself this year. At the beginning of last year, I wasn’t sure if my dream of running a marathon in less than four hours was realistic. I ran my first marathon in 4:36, so I knew that I had a lot of work ahead of me.

    2. Believe In Yourself Every great journey begins and ends with you—you are enough. Always remind yourself that you can achieve your goal, and remember why you started. By practicing positive thinking, you will keep your motivation strong. I needed to start believing that my goal was realistic. I needed to be my biggest motivator.

    3. Inspire & Empower Find a crew or help us #sharethespark on Instagram! The Momentum Jewelry ambassador crew and my local running group not only changed my life for the better, but also continue to inspire me every day. There are not enough words to express my appreciation for the running and fitness community, and I always encourage everyone to join the movement.

    4. Find Joy In The Journey The journey will not be easy, but I promise you that it will be worth it. Know that some days will be easier than others, but don't beat yourself up on the difficult days. Strive to enjoy every second of your journey because the year will fly by before you know it.

    5. Stronger Than Yesterday While it is easy to get caught up in the journey, don’t forget to look back to see how far you've come. Celebrate each short-term win that gets you a step closer to your goal. Last April, I finished the Big Sur Marathon in 4:12. Though I was initially disappointed, I celebrated the 24 minute PR and came back even stronger in July when I finished the San Francisco Marathon in 3:57.

    With a lot of hard work and dedication—and maybe a few Motivate Wraps, too!—you can turn your dreams into realities. Kelli is proof, and we are proud of her for achieving her 2017 goals. Will she repeat in 2018? Will YOU make all your dreams come true? Tell us what you're aiming for so we can be your cheerleader. Be sure to tag @momentumjewelry on Instagram when you take us on your journey, and use #momentumjewelry and #sharethespark in your captions so the rest of this inspirational community can cheer for you, too. 

    Guest Post: How To Find Momentum When Life Slows You Down

    Momentum is not just a workout-friendly jewelry company. While it's true that we give people a way to wear motivational sayings, our products do more than that. Thanks to an incredible amount of tagging on social media, we've seen people from a variety of backgrounds grow and tackle their greatest achievements with the help of jewelry created just for them. We are honored and humbled by all of this. And today, we are sharing Tasha's story. She moved forward when life wanted to hold her back. Learn from her:

    I live a life that is in constant motion. Two years ago, on a Thursday morning in November, my life came to a complete stop. Everything I thought about life fell into my lap like ashes. I had an injured child, a community evenly split among those who supported and those who judged, and my own heart and mind seemed to stop functioning.  

    Let me first say that my son has made a tremendous and complete recovery. I cannot say the same thing about myself. Day after day, while folded up in a recliner in the corner of his hospital room, I had to make the decision to not just fight for him but to fight for myself. I'll be honest—at times, I lost the battle for myself, which continues to be an ongoing process.

    I want us all to be happy and free forever, so let me offer you my truth. Let me tell you how I pulled my head above water...how I found the strength to go back to doing what I love. Honestly, I can’t even imagine what my life would be like if I didn’t teach fitness classes or work with personal training clients. I literally loved myself back to health and wellness.

    So...here. Four ways you can conquer life:

    1) Pray. Prepare. Proceed. I am a woman of faith.  Before I made any move, I prayed about it. When my stress levels shot up and my adrenals went out of whack, when my weight fluctuated about ten pounds every week—I had to make so many adjustments. I knew I could not lead the life I had previously led, but my ego told me that I could. And it was wrong. I had to prepare myself to enter back into life as I was at that moment, rather than who I thought I should be. And then I went for it.

    2) Face Your Fear. I knew that in order to function, I had to not be afraid of what people were saying about my son or me. I was on the news and I didn't like it. Reporters had my cell phone number and I didn't like it. I'd go out in public and people would discuss my life in front of me, not knowing it was me they were talking about. I didn't like that, either. But I decided that my son and I were going to be conquerers. I decided to be free of other people's judgement. I knew that I was good at what I did, and that nothing else mattered. But I was still scared. I still wanted to be liked and adored, respected and admired. All of that was on the other side of my fears, so I stepped over and found freedom.

    Everything you want is on the other side of fear.

    3) Know You Are Enough. I felt like a failure as a mother. When that guilt settled in, I started pulling away from commitments to be with my son, and I felt like a failure at everything else, too. I'd fake my way through the day, hugging and talking with friends. But when my son closed his eyes for the night, I'd cry silently and then feel like a failure for not being strong enough. And yet, the more I feel my experiences and stopped trying to run away from them, the more I began to honor myself as a human. I started being gentle with myself. I'd acknowledge that I was doing the best I could, giving it my all. And then I stopped focusing on people who felt otherwise. I'll admit that I still struggle with this from time to time, but I always come back to this thought: "I was created for this moment. I can do this."

    4) Inspire and Empower. One of the things that helped me the most was my effort to continually serve others. When I felt like I was falling into a hole, I sought out people who could use more encouragement than I needed. By lifting up others, we empower ourselves. So by going on with my life, by being honest about my struggles and relentless about getting back to myself—I found a new normal in a community that nurtured my growth to a new level.

    In the end, my advice to you is this: Trust yourself. Keep moving. Keep your love and gratitude meter on high. 

    Tasha teaches us all to believe, endure and achieve. Over here at Momentum, we support that sentiment wholeheartedly. Our "believe, endure achieve" motivate wrap is ready to help you move forward. Shop the whole collection HERE.
