Who have you thanked lately? Read my note and share yours.

Dear Jonathan,

It was sheer luck that my 8-year-old decided dance had to be in her future! Which led me to you, and the Shaker Dance Academy. I could feel the soul connection and the depth and power of your energy almost instantly when I entered the space. The music vibrated in tow, as if reinforcing the spirit of the place.

This is just an email to say simply “thank you”. Thank you for sharing your energy with the world, and in particular, the children of the world, and for inspiring so many of us every day to live with enthusiasm, to embrace our individuality, and to be grateful for the moments of joy that allow for reflection, openness and growth.

There were a few other mothers watching you through the glass window of the classroom–one woman remarked: “It is an honor to watch Jonathon teach”–”A privilege”, I responded. Every once in while in life, we come across human beings, products, places and experiences that open our world up for a moment and create feelings of gratitude and joy for being here. To put it simply, every once in a while “We dance!”

Wishing you continued success and joy,

There are so many times we feel thankful to others but life, busyness and stress gets in the way of sending them a proper thank you note. By proper, I mean, a note filled with the emotion that captures the spirit of the moment of one’s thankfulness. Today I decided to thank Jonathan for his transformative energy—literally someone whose own internal energy changes the nature of the physical space he inhabits. Transformation should never go unnoticed, undocumented, or unfelt in a superlative life.

Have you experienced passion lately? Read about mine.

To Whom it May Concern,

I tried your juice for the first time last week in Santa Fe, NM at a roadside Starbucks– both the pineapple coconut and one of the greens– I went bananas!!! In a good way (altitude sickness be damned– Evolution juice is a panacea. No, really). From one juice junkie to another, this is the best juice I’ve ever experienced– and I mean it truly was just that– an experience! Now, though I live between NYC and Cleveland and am certain I won’t have a problem finding it in NYC, I’m stuck here in Cleveland for weeks on end with no Evolution. I’ve called and tried every Whole Foods– they don’t carry it here…yet, but I’ve put in a request. I would order it online in a heartbeat, loads of it, but can’t seem to find a way to do that either. Short of fresh juicing my own daily, I’ve never tried juices as fantastic as yours– meaning, I can feel myself being replenished of deficit nutrients literally as I am drinking this stuff!!!

In a nutshell, please advise when Evolution will hit the Cleveland region OR if it is here already, I’ll go anywhere nearby to find it. Thanks so much for your help.

Signed,

Desperately seeking your juice,

Sometimes we get so caught up in the day-to-day management of our lives, we forget to take note of the passionate moments that trickle in and out. Recently, while in Santa Fe, New Mexico (a place where the energy is magical), I had an experience that reinforced my belief in passion. My experience led me to write the email above to the customer service department of a relatively new juice product that sent me into a tailspin of positivity.

What has inspired you lately? Every passionate moment counts. Share yours!

Evolution Juice is cold-pressed containing more nutrients, enzymes and vitamins than other juices that have been processed using heat. The juice tastes better, less concentrated and is lower in calories than any other bottled juice I have tried. It comes in fruit, vegetable and smoothie flavors uniquely blended for optimal flavor, texture and health sustaining properties. Evolution Juice is a Seattle, Washington based company started by Jimmy Rosenberg who first started squeezing naturally delicious juice in Santa Monica more than 30 years ago.

Will you start the Passion Dialogue with me? What has inspired you so much lately that you’d drop everything for a moment to pursue it, write about, live it, drink it, share it?
