Referring to quotes for hope and inspiration is something I’ve done my whole life, so for there to be a company that encompasses optimism and perseverance in the form of chic jewelry is absolutely astonishing to me. I couldn’t think of a more uplifting brand to represent and truly feel so blessed that MantraBand came into my life when I needed it most. Although this California based company originated in 2012, I was initially introduced to MantraBand in 2017 during one of the hardest time periods of my life.
2017 was the year I turned 25, bought/sold my first home, said goodbye to loved ones that were in my life for almost a decade, moved to a new state, started a new job, and began a new life all at the same time I was trying to pick up the pieces from my old one. When I look back at where I was mentally and emotionally exactly one year ago vs. today it’s hard to believe I made it out alive. I was completely alone and on my own for the first time ever, and even though I consciously made that choice it was in no way easy to get through. Aside from drowning in uncertainty and wondering if my quest for happiness would ever truly be fulfilled, I was overwhelmed with guilt daily. I blamed myself for making a decision against the wishes of those I loved, and even though I knew it was right for me, it killed me to let go of people along the way.
Looking back it’s hard to believe I used to be that same girl just one year ago. During my metaphorical (but very real internal growth spurt), I learned more about myself in a year’s span than I had in my whole lifetime. I was finally able to cultivate my purpose, the person I want to become, and the people I strive to inspire. I was able to forgive those that didn’t deserve an apology (or even say sorry for that matter) to bring myself internal peace and move forward. Most importantly I learned to trust my intuition ALWAYS! The reason MantraBand is so close to my heart is because all of their messages have been and always will be so applicable to my life. They give me faith when times are tough, motivate me to keep going when I plateau, and most importantly remind me of how far I’ve come as things finally start to align.
MantraBand encourages my belief that you don’t have to be a representation of what has happened to you. You, me, and everyone on this planet has the strength to rise above any hardship or traumatic event they endure if they genuinely want to. I’m not saying everyone’s journey is measured the same or requires the same amount of strength, but it is possible. Anyone has the ability to be whatever they want to be in life, so don’t hold back. Find your purpose and love it hard because that is what will bring you true bliss. MantraBand is so important to me because it represents everything I am. My goal in life is to inspire others to keep going, to turn hate into love, and pain into goals. Don’t block your hurt, live it, breathe it, and move past it as you grow through life.
