I was catching up with a friend this week and we found ourselves spiralling into the new covid measures, lock down, shut down, stay home, grey zone, red zone and into exhaustion.. again. Sound familiar? He reminded me that I am always writing about the importance of resilience in these times. He said that to be a boxer, the most important skill to hone is learning to roll with the punches. Although I’ve used this term before, I certainly never had a boxing ring in mind. Seeing 'rolling with the punches' through that lens really drove home that one’s survival depended on it. So wherever we are in the world amidst this pandemic, let's aim to feel supple and pliant on our feet, strength in our core, confidence in our spirit and light in our hearts. It is and will remain the true root of our health.
I have an ask.. This week Mindful Necessities got spammed with one star reviews on Google. The emails are different but linked. The person who is at the root of these has never bought anything from us, never met us, had any affiliation with us whatsoever. Although we know it is spam, and it seems as though Google is deleting, it still hurts to read reviews that are malice and unfounded. What it did wake up in me, is that in this day and age, reviews are important. It also made me realize that when I am considering ordering something online from a company I don’t know, I Google them for reviews. Yet I sell online and never ask for reviews.
So here is the ask; if you have bought from us, retreated with me or interacted with us over the years, would you please write a small review of your experience on Google? It doesn’t have to be too long or detailed. I have been deeply touched by emails of thanks and appreciation for the efforts that we make to meet the hearts and needs of our customers. We put love in our work that we know is felt. It would be wonderful to share some of this with others that don’t know us. One way is through Google reviews. It's a little embarrassing to acknowledge the importance of a review only when you've experienced a bad one. lol We don't generally advertise and enjoy relying mostly on word of mouth. When people stumble upon us online, it would be comforting to know they will feel safe and well supported. Would you mind writing a review on your experience? If you Google search Mindful Necessities you should see our listing and an option to "write a review". 🙏🏻
Happy Easter, Happy Sunday and most important, happy Spring blossoms.
