STOP!

I need you to do me a very quick favor.

Throw every expectation you had for this story out the window.

It's likely not what you expected.

 

It was never about Heartbeat

It was about a path

A path that got us here.

A journey down a path that brought strangers together.

One that ignited friendships, but that had many onramps.

 

Where in this journey did our heartbeats unite?

Do you remember?

 

This journey has been one that has been very special to me.

The relationships that have grown out of it have been the greatest reward.

For this

I'm thankful.

 

With all the crazy going on in the world it's easy to overlook the little things like this.

The good that has come from such a rough point in time.

None of us asked for COVID to walk in and ruin 2020.

We can't change that it's here.

BUT.

We can make the best of it.

We can support each other

And.

We can love one another.

It's in our hearts!

I believe life is really all about relationships.

It's these relationships that make every day special.

They allow you to appreciate 

Every moment

And....

Every Heartbeat!

 

Everyone has a different story and experience.

For me, this journey has been a chance to grow.

A chance to build something bigger than myself.

That something is this community which I

LOVE.

 

Heartbeat is nothing without the relationships that have been formed.

The stories that have been shared.

And the friends that have been made.

It is nothing without you.

This journey has not been easy. 

But

What fun is easy?

 

It's these challenges that have allowed not only heartbeat to grow but also myself.

I've grown in ways, I never imagined or believed I could.

 

I've struggled to understand exactly how we got to right here.

Not because I've forgotten the journey

But

Because it's been a whirlwind of emotions.

 The ups

The downs

And

 A giant blur of 2020 craziness mixed in.

 Which

None of us expected I'm sure.

 

Do you remember when in Part 1 I said

 

"The synchronicity of life can often leave you awestruck.

Take a  step back.

Look at the little things.

 Look how beautifully they can compound."

 

Like tiny raindrops that create great waterfalls

Tiny moments

can compound into life-changing experiences

 

 

I had to take this step back to truly understand. 

To truly grasp how this path delivered us here.

 

How so many relationships have been built.

Friends made, and emotions shared.

 

It's the little things

Every act

every message

every chance to treat people how I want to be treated.

 

Every time one of you allowed me to be a part of your journey this year.

Every time I was allowed to share my products with people who needed them.

 

It was these acts that fostered so many hearts to beat.

When we started this journey I envisioned creating a brand with a heart and a beat.

 

Maybe I did

BUT

That was not what it ended up being about.

 

I'm so thankful for each and every one of you who has joined this journey over the last year,

 

I want to get to know any of you who wish to do the same.

 

This final part will be posted to Facebook and I hope you will take a second to tell me about you in the comments.

 

Tell me your story.

Tell me how our paths crossed.

Share the experiences you have loved about the last year.

or

Share your struggles

Let's support one another.

 

There are so many special moments here.

I want to remember them all.

My hope is that this can act as a journal of sorts.

because

There is so much here I just can't remember it all.

But I want to.

 

Because this is what this path is really about.

It's not about our brand.

It's not about me.

 

It is about creating a community.

 A community with a  HEARTBEAT.

 

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

 I look forward to reading your comments.

Jamie Lee Beals Ketelsen
