Find Joy in the Journey – Momentum Jewelry Giveaway

During August, I took part in a month-long Instagram challenge, Find Your Flexibility, headed up by Brittany and sponsored by Momentum Jewelry. I love Momentum – I have one of their Motivate Wrap bracelets and their Foot Notes, too. So it was a coincidental moment when they reached out to see if I’d be interested in reviewing them on the blog (and offering one of you lucky readers your own Motivate Wrap).

As soon as I saw this one, I knew I had to have it.

Find Joy in the Journey.

We had just decided to move to Vermont after 15 years of living in New York City. We were simultaneously excited and terribly sad to leave a place that was so close to our heart. I needed a reminder that sometimes you can find happiness and peace on your way to a destination.

For example, goodbyes are hard, but they’re easier when you turn them into a celebration, like we did at my book club meeting just a few days before I left.

And my wrap totally matches my wine. It really is perfect for me. Just saying. 🙂

Saying goodbye to your neighborhood of more than a decade is bittersweet, but when you know you’re leaving, you see the beauty in the everyday, in buildings and places you haven’t really noticed for years, because they’re just part of your everyday background.

I found myself soaking in details, not sure whether a date with a friend would be the last time I saw them for a while, or if this was my last coffee/workout/run in a certain place. (I never did make it back to most of my favorite places on my running bucket list for NYC, but I have so many memories of wonderful runs to tide me over until I visit New York next.)

(by the way, Christine in this photo is a Momentum Jewelry ambassador – fitness blogging is a small world! 🙂 )

But the journey doesn’t stop when you’re leaving. It continues with discovering your new area, meeting new people, finding your new favorite places and spaces. I’ve already discovered a trail run nearby, had a lovely evening with friends and am beginning to see what our apartment will look like once I manage to unpack all of the (so many!) remaining boxes. I have my eye on a local cafe to check out and I’ve scouted out a couple of great sounding yoga studios to try. The quest to find joy in the journey is about all the fun discoveries around every corner.

And while I’d always thought of the Motivate wraps as a fitness motivation, they work in daily life as well. I chose my dark plum color for the wrap itself, because I knew it would work with just about everything I wear, whether I’m working out, or just mama-life-ing (or drinking plum colored red wine at book club…).

The Motivate Wrap comes in nine gorgeous colors in their soft, t-shirt material wrap (which you can tie to adjust the length, or loop it as loosely or tightly as you need). You can choose between an oval or a rectangle wrap with a bunch of different mantras, like ‘dream big,’ ‘RUN happy,’ ‘just breathe,’ and many more. They work as pretty jewelry, to stack alongside your bracelets or bangles, as well as cozy up perfectly with your sports watch or fitness tracker to give you a motivating push when you’re working out.

So here’s the fun part for you! Momentum Jewelry is offering one of you guys your own Motivate Wrap – and you can choose what saying and what color you’d like! Check out their collection on the Momentum website, then enter via Rafflecopter below. Good luck!

Contest runs Wednesday 9/23 – Wednesday 9/30/15. Void where prohibited. Open to US residents only. Must be 18 years or older. Winner will be announced on the blog on 10/2. Retail value of the Momentum Jewelry Motivate Wrap is $18.99. Momentum will contact the winner directly with details for claiming their prize.

  1. You know I’m a huge fan of momentum jewelry and I have three warp bracelets plus a leather one that says “VITA” and foot notes. Obsessed? Nah. My most favorite right now is my black wrap that says “It’s ok. I ran today.” I also have the “find joy in the journey” because you really just need to read that every day!!!!

  3. Awesome!! You did an amazing job with the challenge! I love Momentum so much! I’m so happy that you have found some places in VT that are going to make you happy. Goodbyes are definitely hard. We just said “see you later” (and we did see those people later). I love the idea of finding joy in the journey!

  4. I’d get ” Like a Boss!”

  5. I love these! The one that I’d want is “Make it Happen.” So often I make excuses for why I can’t do another workout, or focus on eating healthy, but when it comes down to it, I can make it happen. A constant reminder would be a great push!
