Stella and Dot Giveaway!!!

Time for another giveaway!!  Isn’t this fun?  I kinda think it is.  My good friend Jody who as an extremely talented Stella and Dot stylist contacted me about doing a giveaway.  Can we just say I may have jumped up and down for a sec?  Yea, I did.  I love Stella and Dot.  Truth be told, I’m not a huge jewelry girl.  I love simple pieces that say something about who I am but don’t scream it.  Subtle.  So, I knew right away what I wanted.  I have a pair of Stella and Dot drop earrings that are gold that I wear all the time.  I wanted an engraveable necklace to pair with them and I knew exactly what it needed to say.  “Be Brave”  Yes.  I’m going to beat the Be Brave horse to death.

I’ve talked about this some on the blog already, but I’ve spent a lot of years not being brave.  Playing it safe, not stepping out of my comfort zone.  I’ve been massively afraid of failure and what other’s would think.  Starting a blog(hello opening up to a world of potential judgment), becoming a personal trainer(with fears that women would think I was vain or only cared about how I looked, or that I NEVER ate anything unhealthy), and coming to a point as a family where we put a yes on the table to whatever God might call us to do.  All these things have been scary.  Crazy scary.  But, now that I am on the other side of several of these things, I’ve seen it’s actually crazy rewarding to be brave.  You never know what might happen when you step out of your comfortable.

So, having an every day necklace I can throw on as a constant reminder to not live in fear of what might happen?  It’s pretty priceless to me.  So, here’s what we’re gonna do.  Back when we did the Momentum jewelry giveaway I had ya’ll comment on what your theme might be for your bracelet.  I LOVED reading your comments.  So, with this I’m going to ask you to give your “Be Brave” moment.  Again, don’t feel like you need to poor out your soul.  If you are feeling the need to vent, by all means sister lay it on me.  Vent away.  I get it.  But, it can also be something very simple as well.  Here are your rules:

There you have it!!  Follow, tag, and share your Be Brave moment for an extra chance to win.  You will win an engraveable with the saying/word of your choice.  Easy peasy.  Happy Tuesday ya’ll!!  Giveaway is live and will end Thursday PM at 8.  Winner will be announced Friday morning by 8am.

  1. Kelsey…thanks so much for sharing something so personal to you!!! I’m so sorry about your loss. My dad has a terminal brain disorder so I can relate to watching a parent get sick. It’s so hard and you are being so brave. I think it’s ok to learn as you go. I think that’s the way it’s supposed to be because we don’t know what hard stuff life will send our way. You are doing amazing. So thankful to have connected with you!!

  2. Hi Kelly,
    I blog all about being brave and even when fear is pulsing through my body! I would say that I am learning to be brave as I am learning to live life without my sweet momma. She passed away from cancer in April 2013, when I was 23. I learn from my family. I watched my little sister fly home from Tennessee (where she was in college) to PA in March of her senior year. She stayed home for three weeks while our mom was on hospice and went back to complete 3 weeks of missed work, study and pass her finals and still graduate with honors in a span of 2.5 weeks. She is brave. So I learn from her. I was a maid of honor in my best friend’s wedding last year and I would have loved to get help from my mom but instead I learned to do it on my own. I’m sort of learning to be brave as I go. She told me to brave right before she left us. So I do it for her too!

  3. Thanks for sharing Jessica!! I can so relate to this!! I just got my NASM CPT last week!! ACE is a great one to go with. I can relate to this passion so well and wish you all the best as you pursue it!

  4. Ashley. thanks for sharing!! IT can be hard to open up to family about life. But, it’s always better to be honest and put it out there than to hold it in. So proud of you for being bold and brave!

  5. Sabrina…so do I! Represents so much. So proud of you for stepping out with a yes. I think I always thought fear meant I wouldn’t be able to do things instead of “doing it afraid” and letting God take care of the results. So glad you said yes!!

  6. That is brave!!! I’m so glad it turned out and I’m sure it was such a huge blessing to other’s in your church as well who may not have been comfortable asking. Thanks for sharing Lisa!!

  7. Oh my goodness!! What an amazing story!!! Thank you so much for sharing. It’s amazing how quickly life can change. In an instant. So thankful you were on that road and brave enough to do what most people would have chosen not to do. Thanks for being brave!!

  8. Alyson…this made me tear up!! Your boys have been such a blessing to us and our kids…especially Jake and Josh. I’m so proud of you for being brave and letting him go to Brazil! It will be life changing I’m sure and he will do awesome!!=)

  9. I would have to say my current be brave moment is going after what I am passionate about! I love running and boot camp and I am currently studying for the ace group fitness exam! Nervous and excited all bundled up into one! I love fitness and want to share it with others so they can be healthy too! Jessica L.

  10. I had to be brave to tell my family I had a boyfriend. My family was very over protected and I was already in college at the time and I wanted to be honest with them so I had to tell them.

  11. I love the statement “be brave” — I took a huge leap of faith this year and said YES to God in an area of my life that I was scared to death to step in to. It has brought so much peace in my life and I’m so glad it trusted him. I heard a statement once that said “do it afraid” and that has kind of been my motto this year. I want to always push myself outside that comfort zone and really experience all that God has for me. 🙂

  12. I had to be brave to ask our church staff to have a widow’s dinner for Valentine’s Day. God took care of it and it was wonderful.

  13. My “be brave” moment occured three years ago. I was on my way home from work, driving down a dark, windy road when I saw a car drive off the side of the road right in front of me. I had every emotion you could think of when this occured. My first thought was “don’t think, just do”. I don’t know if it was bravery or God but something got me through the process of rescuing the poor woman trapped in her car.

  14. Sometimes as a mom your be brave moment involves letting your kids go. SO, I am going to be brave and allow God to protect my son as he goes on a mission trip to Brazil this summer! Be brave mommas!
