Trust Your Journey inspires women everywhere to honor their inner strength and celebrate their personal path through life. TYJ products proclaim a commitment to this belief while embracing the use of socially and environmentally responsible practices.
We’re two women who felt great inspiration and motivation to share our story. Basically, we’ve been through some trying times and know that it can be simple things that get us through our toughest moments. We’re Beth and Ruth and we want to share Trust Your Journey with you.about Beth | about Ruth
When my little son, Nicholas looks up at me with his big brown eyes and says, “Trust Your Journey, mama” I know that developing this company is what I was meant to do. Beth and I were co-workers for years but always more than that, we were great friends. She was my confidant as my relationship with my future husband, Tom was developing. Tom and I had known each other since we were kids, but it wasn’t until we reached our thirties and ran into one another again at a party that I knew he was the one. He made me laugh. He made me comfortable. He gave me butterflies. The only problem, he was suffering from major health problems, including kidney failure.
My family and friends kept asking me if I was sure I knew what I was doing – getting so involved with a man with such a bleak future. I certainly knew, but it was love. I had waited my whole life for this and wasn’t about to deny it because he was sick.
We fell in love, got married and had 7 wonderful years. I knew that as Tom got sicker it would get bad, but it got really bad. I’m not sure anyone was prepared. He was in and out of hospitals, was on kidney dialysis, taking countless medications and was on a transplant list. We hoped for the best and decided we wanted to start a family and began fertility treatments. Nicholas was born and brought such joy to Tom and me.
Tom fought for so long but his body just couldn’t fight anymore and we lost him. I’ve gone through so much heartache, but happiness in other ways has come of it.
Trust Your Journey is so much more than just a brand to Beth and me. It has saved us.back to top^
Being diagnosed with breast cancer was a turning point in my life to say the least. Shoot, it’s a turning point in anyone’s life because you’ll never ever forget it. Not only was I scared to death, I began to evaluate all that was important in my life.
Chemo was rough, I mean really rough. I was so sick but determined to make it. I knew from the beginning that I wouldn’t let cancer get me but I suppose there was always a lingering doubt, an uncertainty of what life would bring that hung heavy on my heart.
One day during my treatment, a friend gave me a gift with these three simple words...Trust Your Journey. That was it. It all made sense and brought such comfort and peace to me. I had to believe and trust that this awful cancer would lead to good – someday, somehow.
As my health has returned, the next step of my life was to share Trust Your Journey with all women. I felt such motivation and excitement at the thought of helping women around the world. Whether the challenge they face is big or small, Trust Your Journey has the ability to resonate, inspire and comfort.back to top ^
