Hi, I’m Sorry, and a Giveaway

3 Mar


I know…who am I? I am very sorry for my sudden disappearance from the blog world but well, you could say I have a good excuse. For whatever reason, God has decided to challenge me by presenting some very unexpected obstacles regarding my health. A lot has changed in the past few months and it has definitely not been the way I envisioned starting off the new year. Through this I am reminded that He is in control and what I have scheduled on my plan for life may not be what is in HIS PLAN for me. Sometimes when you’re not listening to what He wants, He has to take bigger measures to get his message across. It is actually kind of amusing to think about all that I had planned out, things that felt so set in stone, and not even thinking for a second that any of it could possibly not happen. Talk about a reality check.

So now I’m on a different path; one that I have no idea where it leads. But that’s okay. I guess the morale of the story is to just live life TODAY. Be in the present and stop worrying about the future or having a plan…because let’s be honest, chances are those plans are going to change anyways. Now i’m focusing on keeping my head up and taking one day at a time. It will all work out.

You know what i feel like doing TODAY? Hosting a giveaway to best blog readers in the world! Sound good to you? Alright then.


Several Conscious Box giveaways have already been held on Sweetly Fit, thanks to the awesome company founder, Jameson Morris. He recently launched their brand new site so he wants us to help him celebrate!


Like I have talked about before, the concept of the Conscious Box is all based on eco friendly, health conscious products delivered monthly to your door; a new box for each month! In the past giveaway, winners received 1 box for whatever month we were in. However for this giveaway, the winner is going to receive a 3 MONTH SUPPLY OF CONSCIOUS BOXES!!! Is that awesome or is that awesome?

You can leave a comment for any/all of the following to be entered:

1. Like Conscious Box on Facebook

2. Go to the new Conscious Box website and make yourself a profile (it’s free!)

3. Tell me about a time in your life when things didn’t go as planned

4. Subscribe to Sweetly Fit (on the right-hand side of main page—>)

5. Tweet this giveaway

I will pick a winner on Friday, March 8th!

    I unfortunately know all too well about health taking a toll on our plans. If you need someone to talk to I have experience with this matter. There is a light at the end of the tunnel.

    I so sorry about the hardships you’ve been going through recently. But your positive attitude about all of this just brightens my heart. I know the Lord will be there for you. He will help you press forward through the mess. He will strengthen you. He will guide you. 🙂

    Ahh, so nice to see a post from you 🙂 . I hope whatever you are going through you’re heading in a positive direction<3.
    My own health issue actually prevented from continuing my job, which I loved, sadly.

    A time in my life that did not go as planned…would have to be job searching. It was such a stressful and emotional dump, but I pulled through and am ultimately grateful for the struggle that led me to place that I am now.

    To quote Lennon, “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” I think most plans in my life have gone awry, but everything has turned out well (though sometimes rather unexpectedly).

    I just have to say that I was so glad to see you posted something! I love seeing your eats and delicious dessert recipes(: I will have to say that I’m def in for this giveaway (i’m just a broke college girl eh) and a time when something didn’t go right….hmm. how about when I was supposed to go on vacation and then we had a family emergency. Although I would have loved to go to the Caribbean of course family comes first! Hope you are feeling better!

    I think basically the whole college planning and searching I had to go through a couple years ago was definitely not planned and so random!

    Oh, there were may instances where things didn’t go as planned…having a very bad accident that kept me away from being active (both physically and emotionally) for more than a year was definitely one of the biggest struggles.
