Do you know that you know far more than you know you know?

Why Not Try a Purple Heart?

 

I’m not a big fan of the color pink.

It doesn’t go well with my skin tone, it’s very girly, and well, I don’t even need a reason to feel that pink is my least favorite color – so there you have it.

I bring this up because this time of year, pink is literally everywhere because of Valentine’s Day.

How this may impact you.

There may be customers like me that don’t enjoy the color pink, Valentine’s Day, or things the world tells us is “cute” or “appropriate.” Why not do something different, unique and startling?

What if this year, this decade, you decided to alter the norm? What if you went with a different color, a different look, a new approach?

What would you have to do?

Ask new questions of course!

Instead of, let’s get out the red and pink for Valentines Day, why not ask, “What’s a new thought around this holiday?”

Here’s what came to me.  “Why not use purple this Valentine’s Day?”

Then, of course, I thought about a purple heart and that took me down a whole new wonderful road.

A Purple Heart

Here is what Wikipedia offered:

The Purple Heart

Defense Meritorious Service Medal. Purple Heart Service Ribbon. The Purple Heart is a United States military decoration awarded in the name of the President to those wounded or killed while serving, on or after April 5, 1917, with the U.S. military.

And with a tiny bit more digging.

The idea of the purple heart originated with General George Washington in 1782.  In 1932, on the 200th anniversary of Washington’s birth, the concept was revived by the U.S. War Department and the name changed to the Purple Heart. Bearing an image of Washington, it is awarded to troops injured by the enemy.

My heart is filled with gratitude for those who serve our country. My dad was one of them, and so what if you honored those brave souls this Valentine’s Day?

Or what if…

You asked your packs, tribes, peeps about the pets they know that gave their lives for others, and create a lavender heart for them?

The ideas are endless. Let this post spur your thinking and forgive my disdain for pink,  however, look at what we both learned!

A Favorite Mind-Setting Quote:

“As water, when transmuted into steam, becomes a new, more definite and wide-reaching power, so passion, when transmuted into intellectual and moral force, becomes a new life, a new power for the accomplishment of high and unfailing purposes.”

~James Allen, New Zealand Statesman, Minister of Defense , 1912-20, (1855-1942)

The Value of Community

 

Originally, today’s post was to let you know that we would be attending Global Pet Expo at the end of this month (which we will). However, that email accidentally went out last week. When Elaine realized her error, she sent out an oopsie email and the responses poured in.

What we learned is that people understand mistakes, and that people foul up sometimes.

When you allow someone to see or hear about your mistakes something really wonderful can happen.

  1. The veil comes down and the business looks more human.
  2. People check you out because, hey, who admits mistakes nowadays?
  3. Those that feel for you because of your mistake, reach out in support (that by the way speaks to the wonderful person who does the reaching out. Anyone who takes the time to support or encourage another is made of quality stuff.)
  4. Relationships deepen because there is a shared understanding about being human.
  5. If you are lucky enough to be part of a community, the community lifts you up at a time when you might be feeling down.

Though I’m not a fan of mistakes I’ve learned to accept that they happen, ask for forgiveness, and then let it go.

Last week when the email went out early, so many of you responded with love and kindness. Your responses not only made my day, but the entire team’s as well.

You are wonderful to be a part of this pack, and so gracious.
