Be True To You Giveaway

Be True To You

I’m a big believer in things happen for a reason. Even something as simple as ordering a new workout top and a little black bracelet.

An unplanned journey begins.

Buy a Be True To You workout top =====> Participate in the Lorna Jane and Fit Approach Move Nourish Believe Challenge =====> Start thinking about things like ways to create happiness in your life =====> And questioning whether or not your actions align with your beliefs and the person you want to be =====> Make new connections with people that support, encourage and ask “how are you” (many thank yous to Lindsay and Tina!) and it all culminating with the Move Nourish Believe challenge ending with a week focusing on BELIEVE.

See what I mean? It might sound crazy but I don’t think it’s all a coincidence. A simple act that set events into motion. All of this needed to happen when it happened for me to be who I am today.

There is a happiness to be found in BE TRUE TO YOU. There is a relief and a pressure removed. 4 little words that can change your perspective, mindset and how you see yourself.  I don’t know. I can’t explain it. Something just clicked and my total mindset and how I see myself changed.

Getting lost in thought and sharing what I want to say I almost forgot to link you to where it all began, Kasey’s shop at Powercakes. And, if you want to order Be True To You gear, the next preorder will go in on March 21.

  7. I strongly believe things happen for a reason. My husband and I met at a friend’s house when I was down and out due to getting my wisdom teeth pulled at 29. He met me with puffy cheeks and overlooked it. 15 years later we are still happily married with 2 children. Coincidence? I think NOT!

  17. I definitely think that things happen for a reason.

    Ten(ish) years ago, I graduated from college and started a new job. I got the job because a friend gave my resume to his friend that worked there. I walked in the door for my interview and was greeted by my husband 🙂 At the time, I was in a really bad relationship and vented to my coworkers, including my now husband, a lot. When things got really bad and I broke it off, he was there to help me put everything back together, and has been there ever since.

  18. I believe things happen for a reason…and what a great giveaway!

  19. This is fantastic! I am also a big believer of things happening for a reason, and this is ultimate positive thinking, don’t you think? I try not to be too sad about things that don’t go the way I wish they did, because when I look back and see the decisions I made that led me to where I am today, I know that everything falls into place perfectly. And it helps that I’m happy!

  20. I believe that everything absolutely happens for a reason!!! I was in a roll-over car accident in 2009. It put my life into a spiral and I never expected all the amazing things that would flourish because of it. I was in Physical Therapy on and off for a year and a half, I became extremely depressed and nearly lost my job. All of my family was in OH and I was in OR I felt very lonely and had come to OR as a medical traveler so when I had to stay and take a permanent job, I knew hardly anyone. I felt very alone. Finally, a friend reached out his hand and told me about an incredible program. My life began turning around. I lost 64 lbs in 6 months, gained confidence I never had before, went from selfish to very humble, I started sharing this gift with everyone I knew and I have now helped over 200 people in 2 years. I have found the love of life after becoming a runner and ran my first ever 5K then 7K, then half-marathon. We are getting married this August. The accident was a blessing in disguise and my life was redirected to one of purpose. I will be leaving my full-time job to continue as Full-time Health Coach in June! The Lord does wonderful things and he always has a plan! “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.”- Proverbs 3: 5-6

  21. I do believe things happen for a reason, because I believe in a Lord who knows what’s best for me, and I trust his plans. 🙂

  22. Rachel Henthorn says:

    I do believe everything happens for a reason, good or the bad.

  23. I definitely believe that things happen for a reason. In particular, when it comes to the people who come into my life, I know there’s a reason, whether that is to push me to be a better athlete, or to work harder, or to relax and have more fun.

  24. I do believe things happen for a reason! There have been far too many instances in my life where it has occurred to me that things worked out the way they did bc it was meant to be that way! Sometimes we don’t always see the bigger picture right away and it can be confusing but once it becomes clear it can be so eye opening!

  25. There are so many times that I have believed things happen for a reason! One that stands out: We visited my grandparents in Fl and as we were there my grandpa was scheduled for intensive heart surgery – we were so lucky to have been there to support my grandma through that.

  26. Oh I absolutely believe!! I got pregnant with my daughter my senior year, graduated, married and her a few months later. 25 plus years later I am still happily married and we were never able to get pregnant again. A TRUE BLESSING 🙂

    And BE TRUE TO YOU is a motto I have used for many years!!

  27. One decision can definitely lead to a series of events. Life is like dominos!

  28. Everything does happen for a reason- I am a firm believer. A few years ago , much to my dismay, I had to turn down an amazing internship for personal reasons. I was so upset by it and it took me a long time to get over it. Shortly thereafter I reconnected with an old friend from high school and now I’m married to him! I think if I had accepted the internship we would have not reconnected. Now, I know things happen for a reason.

  29. I totally believe things happen for a reason. Case in point (most recent): I got offered a job as a track coach, but it coincided with a few shifts of my “regular” job (which was only part time anyway). I went to talk to my boss about this new amazing opportunity and the bad news that I would need to switch things around….but she countered me with the fact that her business was going under, and she had to downsize, and cut my hours anyway! ironic? coincidence? Either way!

  30. I decided to stay where I was living 1 more year and because of that I met my fiance Things happen for a reason.

  31. I’d like to believe things happen for a reason. Kind of in a place in my life where I’m wondering about my past choices and whether they were right. Hopefully it’ll eventually all make sense :).

  32. One simple action- deciding to try a new fitness class- has opened up a whole group of friends for me with lots of shared interests and experiences.

  33. I definitely believe that some things happen for a reason. I’m also a strong believer that some things don’t happen for a reason. When a door is shut, when my plans fail is the best time to look around for the opportunity that I was somehow not seeing.

  34. I def believe things happen for a reason. This has exhibited in my life with my last job search!

  35. I do think that things happen for a reason, good and bad

  36. I made a trade with my husband and in return he had to come to church with me for 2 months. We now attend regularly as a family and go to sunday school as well. That one action has made a complete life change in our home for us and our children.

  37. I absolutely believe that things happen for a reason. When shopping for our first home we lost several houses to people with higher bids at the last moment and it was very upsetting. When we finally did find the right home for us it was just the right one in our price range and bigger than the others with extras like hard wood floors and a fireplace. We were so glad that we missed out on the other houses.

  38. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t believe this. I believe especially that we are put in certain places to meet certain people 🙂

  39. Annie Block says:

    This is so great! So true. Love the tank!

  40. I’m a believer that everything happens for a reason – good and bad. Most often making a good decision leads to more good decisions and positive opportunities. Even the negative experiences in life are teachable moments. Real life examples are moving across the country with my husband and enduring a stinky job situation early in our marriage which even though it didn’t last long, taught us what we “didn’t” want in life and helped us make better decisions as we matured.

  41. I’m a true believer in things happening for a reason. It was really by chance that I met my husband. He was a friend of my brother’s and they had been hanging out together. One thing led to another, and he asked me on a date, and the rest is history. We’ve been together since 2001 and married for 6 1/2 years. He’s truly the love of my life!

  42. My job took me out to Utah and leaving my family and friends was devastating. I didn’t know it at the time but moving out there was for a greater reason: to meet my husband. 7 years later, we just welcomed our little boy into this world! Things do happen for a reason!

  43. I believe everything happens for a reason! I can’t think of one specific event, but basically everything that happens I think is for a reason 🙂

  44. Yes, I believe that things happen for a reason. I was very good friends with my husbands sister well before I met him. We were meant to be together but would probably never have met if I hadn’t worked with his sister.

  45. you know i love this! i loved connecting with you and will always be there for the journey!

  46. I truly believe things happen for a reason. I know this! I see it daily in my life. Years ago I read a book I think was titled: “There Are No Accidents” and believe it still today.

  47. Melanie Caines says:

    Love Powercakes! Loving the power plates challenge right now! 🙂

  48. Have you ever had one simple action set a series of events into motion?
    YES… these can be good but sometimes bad, too

  49. I decided to run a 5k my family walks every year the summer before my senior year of high school and did very well which caused me to switch from the 400 to distance running. Later that year I was introduced to my current boyfriend because of running and got a scholarship to the college I had wanted to attend since freshman year of highs hook and couldn’t afford without it

  50. i do believe things happen for a reason! battling with an eating disorder/anorexia i always wonder why do i have to go through this and i wish i never had to go through this but i feel like i have had to go through this for a reason.. to help other girls and boys out there who struggle and spread the word!!!!

  51. I’d like to think that things are more than just random. Certain things are hard to make sense of otherwise

  52. One simple action for me is just to stick with it. Being dedicated and never giving up. No matter how slow the process is.

  53. I’m a FIRM believer that things happen for a reason and in their own time too.

    It seems like every single day there is something little that let’s me know that that moment was the right time. Something you can’t explain, you just feel and know.

    Lately it’s been with my family, fitness and my business.

  54. I strongly believe this. I was told I was infertile. After 3 long years we gave up, and I changed my focus. I picked up running, and we ended up conceiving – literally, the night before my first half marathon. My first long run after the half was so hard and I couldn’t figure out why – until we realized that staying in a hotel that night, we’d gotten pregnant at my first half. It was definitely fate.

  55. I definitely think things happen for a reason. From being in a certain place at a certain time to meeting someone who ends up making a big difference in your life:)

  56. I love love love that tank!!! And I too am a firm believer that things all happen for a reason – most times we just need to set it in motion!

  57. Some things definitely just do happen for a reason. I met a great guy while I was in what I thought was a great relationship. He stole me away from someone who was never right for me and we’ve been together for 4 years now 🙂

  58. I couldn’t believe more that things happen for a reason. As cheesy as it sounds, I really do believe that we’re all following the path that we’re meant to follow … even if it seems skewed sometimes. Love hearing your journey!

  59. Absolutely, I do believe things happen for a reason. You know this is going to sound crazy, but I think this work injury I got probably happened for a reason. Its crazy to say because I’ve hated it all, but I’ve actually learned so much. Things that I never knew about my body, and I have been taught new things by the Dr’s, Specialists and PT’s – that once I am back into running higher mileage I will benefit from greatly and I am pretty certain I am going to be a better runner and take an even better approach this next time around!

  60. At my first job after college, I met this nice co-worker…and eventually married him, and now have been married for 23 years 🙂
    Yes, things happen for a reason 🙂

  61. I am believer that all things happen for a reason…can’t think of a specific example right now though 😉

  62. My love for running and working is my action set a series of events into motion. 🙂 It’s something that I started that has now became a part of my everyday life. 🙂

  63. My husband and I apart for 3 years for work. When I moved to be with him, our life was easier and it was worth all the sacrifices. It’s true when they say that things happen for a reason. 🙂

  64. i definitely believe things happen for a reason. one big example: last year, i had plans to go watch game one of the stanley cup final at a pizza place with a coworker, but a storm kept him from being able to, so i resorted to watching at a bar where i met my now-boyfriend!

  65. I believe God plans everything exactly how it’s supposed to be! Yes, I believe He makes things happen in the right order for a reason! Thanks for the chance to win!

  66. I definitely believe things happen for a reason. I sat next to someone at orientation to grad school 4 years ago who turned out to be my closest friend in the world right now…just think if I’d sat in a different seat! 🙂

  67. I agree things happen for a reason. I started running because someone told me I was fat and if I wanted our relationship to continue I needed to do something about it. However almost 2 years later I have found a love for something bigger than me and a love for myself as well as this great running community.

  68. I completely believe that things happen for a reason and that we need to look at the meaning in even the negative events 🙂

  69. I believe in fate. I know I met my husband for a reason. He’ supported me through more than I could have ever anticipated.

  70. What an awesome giveaway!! Things absolutely happen for a reason. While battling infertility – I have told myself that every single day for years! XOXO

  71. I’m a believer that things happen for a reason. My hubs and I went 3 years without seeing each other after being friends for years. We ran into each other randomly and have been together going on 7 years since!

  72. Yes! My life motto is “Everything happens for a reason” and I really believe it! One thing that’s really sticking out to me right now is how I got into my favorite cross training workout, Barre3 – My sister suggested it to me as I was looking for something new to try in January, and then when I googled it I found out that a studio was opening near me in 2 weeks and were giving out free classes but they were all full. I got off the waiting list for a class but fell in love with it and was sad that I couldn’t do it due to the price. I then found out that they were training a new teacher and all of her classes would be free for 3 weeks, which made me really fall in love with Barre3! I then got a special discount for being a member since opening day and I’m there all the time now. If I’d started goggling it before or after I did I probably wouldn’t be taking classes there now!

  73. I believe you make things happen for a reason. Whether or not you know it. 🙂

  74. Love the Emerson quote!! And what a cute tank. Yes, I believe things happen for a reason, even if it’s a reason we don’t immediately understand.

  75. Meredith N. says:

    I do believe that everything happens for a reason. Before I met my husband, a lot of things had been going crazy and changing in my life, same for his, but in the end, it somehow brought us together!

  76. When I first started teaching at my last school district I had to commute almost an hour so I did something out of my character. I stood up in front of a room of over 100+ people, told them the area of town I lived in and that I was looking for a carpooler. I started carpooling with a couple of other teachers. One in particular became my good friend, my boyfriend, my fiance, my husband, and the father of my child. Wow, who would have thought?!?!

  77. I absolutely think things happen for a reason. I feel like my entire life shift has happened for a reason. Leaving teaching, focusing on fitness and the things I do in that arena. I was happy making the decision to do it, I am happier now that I am doing it, and I am meeting the most amazing people. It can’t possibly be a coincidence, this was meant to be. 🙂

  78. I think running is a great example of a simple action that started to set a series of events into motion. First I just ran around the block and now I run races and blog, I met awesome and supportive people online and in real life!

  79. I totally believe things happen for a reason! During an internship (in Germany) I met the president of the company and he invited me for an internship in the US. Well, that was 9 years ago and I have never left the US!

  80. I 100% believe things happen for a reason! Anytime I’m running behind and then pass a car accident on the side of the road, if my plane is delayed, or if something I really want is a “no” and something better comes along. And of course….that story about the bus driver being saved by a version of the Bible. Definitely not coincidences (in my opinion)!

  81. Awwww thanks so much for the mention, I did not really do anything to help you! I feel that you do so much to help me!!!

    I am 100% a believer in things happening for a reason. My races always play out exactly how they should. I always feel that when I have a bad race, or an injury there is a reason it is happening, and it allows me to reach goals I never would have otherwise! I think that is the reason I ran in the Olympic Trials, because I had an injury before it that made me so determined to run the qualifying time no matter what!

    Love this post, JIll! 🙂

  82. I love powercakes! I am definitely a firm believer in everything happening for a reason! Cheers to that.

  83. Absolutely believe this! Last year I was miserable in a job I hated because it did not align with who I was or what I believed…and then I got laid off. Best thing that could have happened to me! It’s been difficult but I know my struggles now are leading me towards a more fulfilling life purpose.

  84. I agree; things do happen for a reason. They often make me reevaluate myself, my goals, my actions. Funny, I’ve actually been going through a lot of that lately.
