Founder Friday: Happy Anniversary, nécessité

Share

Dear Nécessité,

Guess what? It’s our second anniversary. Woot woot.  Happy anniversary, nécessité! I am extremely grateful for you and for all of what nécessité is and means. Thank you so much for going on this journey with not only me but with yourself. It’s true teamwork.

When creating nécessité, it was important to create something that stuck: a place to learn, shop, be inspired, become more aware, get motivated, and feel supported and understood; a safe, feel-good, healthy space where you can come and gravitate to what spoke and stuck to your spirit. Grab what attaches, mentally and physically.

Optimal health has always been a main piece of the nécessité puzzle. I knew that in order to work to achieve optimal health, we had to start with self-care; to admit our truth regardless of how uncomfortable, and speak out about important things. This is who nécessité was before birth, before 2020, and before now. 

I always knew the value and importance of nurturing oneself through self-care. We truly cannot give or love anything or anyone until we first have it ourselves. But self-care goes well beyond a long bath and face mask. We have to go beyond the surface — the honest, raw layer of self. In order to achieve optimal health, we must first start with ourselves, not start with wellness. Mental, physical, and spiritual wellness is what we desire to aspire to.

Thank you for sharing this moment in your life with all of us at nécessité. While we make mistakes and some quite obvious, we are not afraid to show our flaws. We embrace them, as they’re all a part of our learning curve to help us grow and evolve.

Thank you for reading your Daily Dose. I didn’t know what it was going to be when we first started laying the foundation…

All I knew was that I wanted to provide everyone with daily medicine, our daily dose of something positive.

Daily Dose = Inspiration.

That was something I wrote on a piece of paper in 2006 and now it has come to fruition, 13 years later.

Again, thank you for being on this journey with me and all of us. I say thank you to you and to the incredible nécessité team that helps make it all happen and shaped nécessité into what it is today and daily.  I am only a part of nécessité, collectively we make up nécessité.

Much love and gratitude,
