Okay, I've never actually written one, but if ever I did, I think this would be the good time to give it!
These 12 days after the unveiling of the Church of the Holy Wow have probably been THE Holy Wow-iest days ever. I am enormously grateful to the people* who contributed prizes, promoted the giveaways, and showed up to participate in my big re-launch in whatever way they felt called. Thanks, first and foremost to Goddess Leonie and my Goddess Sisters who have provided me with a very real sanctuary to just be my naturally crazy, enthusiastic self without anyone thinking I'm weird. Well.. without anyone thinking I'm super weird.
No one tried to tell me my idea was stupid or not worth pursuing. Quite the opposite. My Goddess Sisters picked me up on their shoulders and carried me down to the fifty yard line. Holy Wow. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. It's been a very strange ride and I've been so amazed at the response to the new Soul Spackle on every level. When I wake up in the morning a little queasy, worrying that I've exposed too much of myself here -- which is how I've felt the last 12 days -- I'm then touched by an email or passing comment from someone who clearly *gets it*. Which makes it okay. More than okay, actually.
It is very very good.
Below is one of my favorite videos ever, by McCabe Russell, set to Amy Steinberg's "Exactly". It is my "gift" to you, and it is a reminder to myself that ultimately it is so so so worth Being Brave.
the winner of the Grand Prize Self Love Explosion is......... Maggie!
Many blessings to you for a hugely wonderful Summer of Self-Love!
