will you please tell me something?

Dear Ones, 

If you've been around here for a while, you know that I've gone through a LOT of changes in the last year or so.  (If you haven't, then I'm waving extra hard at you to say hi-hello-welcome and thanks for joining us here!) 

I've been in my new life here in Seattle for nearly three months.  It recently hit me afresh that I'm the happiest I remember being in my entire life.  And yep, you're right - that has happened after becoming newly single and therefore newly vulnerable to the embarrassing status of cat-lady.  There are all kinds of things to say here about how other people's opinions of us aren't actually our business (so what if I live alone with my beloved senior kitty?!! She's awesome, and I'm her person) and how taking the right risks can yield so much beauty (as in, the risks that our souls want, not the more-money-more-status that our more shallow, ego-driven bits want), and how it takes effort, intention, and energy - yes, devotion - to build a life in which you feel profoundly happy all the way down to your toes.  Which is possible. 

Truly.  If I can do this, then anyone can. 

But today what I want to say is that, in the midst of all these changes, I'm sitting with big questions about what I'd like to do here next.  For YOU. 

I've been thinking a lot about you.  Really.  I look at your name on my list, and I wonder how things are going for you.  (Even if we've never met.)  I wonder what you need and what would help you the most.  Like, what can I do for you that would really rock your socks and change your world?    Do you need a fun story?  A new class?  Practical, hands-on advice?  A specific new skill?  A checklist?  A video series?  A beach retreat?  

Really - I'd sincerely love to know!  So I'm asking you.  I've got a squillion ideas and energy to match, but I want to align my efforts with what you actually need.

So, before I throw myself into action, I want your help. 

What would most help you be devoted to your own happiness? 

Will you please tell me? 

Will you please give me TWO minutes of your time and take this super-quick survey?

Then I can go make it for you! 

The whole reason I'm running this business is to help you fiercely and lovingly insist on your own happiness, over and over again. 

Because profoundly happy people make a fierce and lovely impact in the world, whether that's helping others heal, helping others learn like grade-A superstars, helping create beautiful spaces, helping create fair and efficient systems, or whatever!  Happy people help.  They reach out, take real action, and literally shape a more joyful and inclusive and peaceful world.

Insisting on your happiness is NOT selfish.  In fact, I rather think it's selfish to not be happy, to not contribute to a more loving world, to not bring more beauty and joy into your own life as well as the lives of others.

So, let's do this!  Please tell me what you need.  Here is the link to the survey - it will take ONLY two minutes, really.  (It's multiple choice, not an essay.) 

Thank you so much!!! 

I'm already psyched to read your responses and build something beautiful for you!

Much love,
Julie
