Behind the Scenes

This past spring I got a note from Connie Hieatt, a
remarkable woman whom I've enjoyed crossing paths
with for years. She needed to replace her Thrive Theory
pendant because she left hers in Kenya on a recent trip.
As her beautiful story goes, she had given it to this
fourteen-year-old girl, Rosemary, whom she got to
know at the Rafiki Children's Center there. Rosemary
had big dreams of becoming a doctor, and Connie
believed Rosemary had the ability and determination
to make those dreams come true. To help demonstrate
her confidence, she gave her own Thrive Theory
pendant and explained the meaning behind it. She told
her to hold tight to her dreams and believe in the people
surrounding her who would help her achieve them.

We all need that kind of encouragement at some
point, especially when the odds are stacked against us.
But as we reach our goals, we're fortunate to have the
opportunity to help others find their way also. Thanks
to Connie for sharing the Thrive Theory symbol in Kenya!

The second chapter of this story came when Debbie Phillips, 
founder of Women on Fire heard about her kind gift to Rosemary,
and replaced Connie's pendant in appreciation of her kindness.
Thank you Debbie for helping to honor Connie with a new
Thrive Theory pendant, it was a joy to deliver it on your behalf!

The good feelings just keep coming over here, and it's our
delight watching these moments unfold!
