    Guest Post: You are the loudest voice you hear. #beyoutiful.

    Our BE YOUtiful campaign encourages everyone everywhere to reclaim the beauty and power within. We are reposting our series of inspirational blog articles with a BE YOUtiful message from previous years, to give you a chance to discover these wonderful messages again!   We're kicking off the campaign with a great one from Staci Becker, a GroupX and Spin instructor with a positive outlook.

     

    What is the first thing you see when you look in the mirror in the morning? Is it how beautiful your eyes are, or the bags underneath them? Is it how soft your hair is, or how the grey is starting to show through? Do you see all the happy moments that have earned you those laugh lines, or do you just see wrinkles? Your first 60 seconds out of bed can set the tone for your whole day. Will you be beautiful, soft, and happy—or saggy, grey, and full of wrinkles? 

    You are the first and loudest voice you hear. Make that voice a positive one.

    When I was 12, I was friends with the popular girls. One day after lunch, we were outside at recess and one of the girls found me on the playground. She told me the girls could no longer be friends with me because I was fat. 35 years later, I can still remember exactly where I was standing, what I was wearing, and what those words felt like. I have forgiven that girl, but still carry that moment with me as a reminder of how powerful words can be. But it’s not just the words of others. It's also the words we tell ourselves.

    The sad truth is that, even now, I will sometimes tell myself that I am fat, ugly, or not good enough. I would never say those words to anyone else, but for some reason, I think it's acceptable to say them to myself. I'm pretty sure I’m not the only woman who has this horrible inner dialog, and it makes me sad.

    Why do we feel the need to put ourselves down? And why do we think it’s OK? 

    Can you remember the last time you put yourself down? Imagine how run down you'd feel if  you had someone following you around all day putting you down? I challenge you to pay attention to your inner dialog for one entire day. Be honest with yourself and notice how many times you are positive and how often you are negative. If you are like most women, it’s not going to be pretty. 

    Here’s the good news: It can change. You can change. You get to choose how you talk to yourself. Be an encourager. Be a positive force for yourself and for others, too. When you are operating from a place of positivity, your cup is full and you are better able to pour into others. This can happen, but it takes intention and diligence.  

    Pay attention to things you love about yourself and focus on them. Write down five things you are good at, five traits you have that you love, five characteristics you were born with that make you special. Celebrate and embrace those things, and let them shine through.

    Remember, you are in control of how you see yourself, how you treat yourself, and how you talk to yourself. You deserve to hear how wonderful you are every single day—even if it’s just from yourself.

    One last reminder: You are the loudest voice you hear, so make it positive. Download your free BE YOUtiful poster and snap YOUR #beYOUtiful pic.  Post and share to help spread this important message! 

    Brooklyn Mom on the Run, Six-Star-Marathoner.

    Written by KC Metz

    When two people meet, and instantly have a connection, I can’t help but think they were meant to have met all along. That’s what it was like when I met Kathy for the very first time close to 3 years ago at the New York Road Runner’s Bronx 10 Miler. 

    “Excuse me, BrooklynMomOnTheRun, it’s me, GoMommyGo, from Instagram!” 

    ...and we chatted as if we’d known each other for years. We ended the conversation with a hug, and left with so much more than the medal we’d come for.  In the blink of eye, after meeting in person for the first time, we’d become each other’s biggest cheerleaders. 


    Kathy was already an amazing ambassador for Momentum Jewelry, and encouraged me to apply for ambassadorship when the time came...which I excitedly did. Shortly thereafter not only were we cheering on each other’s goals, as Momentum Ambassadors together, we were cheering for the goals of so many others as well; small goals, medium goals, and of course, the big goals too. 

    Kathy set the bar high as an Ambassador and as a runner.  When you do a google search for inspirational women...you’re sure to see Kathy’s smile pop up in there somewhere!  The goals she’d set for herself were brave, the biggest of which (as a runner) was to become a Six-Star-Marathoner. 

    A Six Star Marathon Finisher is someone who has completed each of the Six Abbott World Marathons: New York, Boston, Chicago, Tokyo, Berlin, and London; it is appropriately deemed  the “Mount Everest Of Marathon Running.”   This past April 28, 2019, in London, Kathy (aka BrooklynMomOnTheRun) became one of only 5,000 runners worldwide to receive her SIX STAR MEDAL!  

    Kathy from Brooklyn, ran all over the world...running until her dreams became reality!  Kathy from Brooklyn is the biggest cheerleader I’ve ever met; she’s the person you want in your corner cheering for your dreams to come true too! 

    The new Brooklyn Bracelet honors Kathy’s achievement, while encouraging all who wear it to always reach for the stars!

    Congratulations To Our Superstar! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    How to Have #aBetterBlackFriday (GIVEAWAY)

    Today is Black Friday. People everywhere are flocking to stores that promise super sales on must-have products, giving everyone hope that Holiday shopping could be completed in just one day. If this day is important to you, we salute you for tackling the crowds—but we here at Momentum are choosing #aBetterBlackFriday. We are choosing to #optoutside.

    Now, this isn't about boycotting commercialism. Instead, we feel it's more about slowing down and enjoying what life has to offer you. Specifically, the people and places around you. Grab those people and #optoutside. Explore nature, not the nearest shopping mall. Even if it's just for half a day. Or even two hours.

    Here are more ways to have #aBetterBlackFriday:

    • Go for a walk, run or just sit in the sun.
    • Enjoy the sun, the sand or even the snow.
    • Find a playground with your kids, or turn it into your gym for the day.
    • Sit on your porch, and just watch the world around you.
    • Go for a swim, then play in the sand.

    Really, it's about getting out into nature in a way that tunes you into the life you live with the people you love. We think that's important. 

    ...and we want to see how you do it. Snap a picture and tag @momentumjewelry on Instagram with #aBetterBlackFriday and #optoutside. Or comment on our #aBetterBlackFriday Facebook post. We'll pick two winners. Each will receive the Motivate Wrap of their choice and a Hydroflask 10 oz. Rocks Tumbler. 

    We truly can't wait to see what you do.

    Now go, have #aBetterBlackFriday.

    You are fearless. You are powerful. You are worthy. #beYOUtiful

    Oh, #beYOUtiful! You have blown us away with your true selves. Our #beYOUtiful campaign stresses the importance of overcoming self doubt, of listening to your innermost power girl and changing her conversation so that it remains positive and encouraging at all times. We believe that each one of you is a fearless, powerful and worthy individual—and through this campaign, we see that you believe that as well. 

    We see your beauty, we read your signs, and we encourage you to keep encouraging others to believe that they are #beYOUtiful, too. If you haven't read them yet, we encourage you to pour a delicious cup of coffee or tea and read through each one of our #beYOUtiful blog posts from the past few days.
