Dragonfly Mascot

At Will You, it is our experience that life and nature are alive and communicate with us continually. Will You grow and hear what life is saying to you?

The dragonfly is our mascot because of its metaphysical meaning and meaning to our company and founder. If it were not for the dragonfly, neither would exist as we know them today. Here’s our founder, Angelique Medow’s story and lessons she learned from the dragonfly:

A month into COVID-19 isolation, I contracted Lyme disease, ended a tumultuous relationship and failed my first attempt to position Will You in the market. All deadly and crippling circumstances aside, the heart of my angst lie in none of those things.

I created Will You to support others in their personal growth and transformation. This was an ostentatious concept to those I loved. Although my clients experienced real results from Will You services, my loved ones expressed their displeasure and doubt. They encouraged me to get a job that “pays dividends” and “marry a rich man,” because “people don’t want personal growth.”

Although their rejection of me was painful, it was tolerable in comparison to the feeling of the raking dissonance of our ethical codes. I was teaching what they were unwilling to do. There was no comfort or consolation for me in being close to them. And, being in their presence would put me in harm’s way physically, emotionally and spiritually. My beliefs and the concepts I was teaching scared them. They railed against me in an attempt to protect their own ideas about themself and life. I understood it, but it felt defeated, devalued and unsupported.

So I left them to lead the kind of lives that they wanted. And I went without companion or blood family, to find and create my own life—prayerful that I’d meet others like me along the way. My only communication with the outside world for the next four months was weekly meetings with my Will You team, personal healing work, masked “hellos” to strangers at the grocery store, and exercise.

Of those outside interactions, exercise gave me the greatest peace. My favorite form of exercise is swimming. One day, I was in such emotional pain, that when I walked down to the big rock by the lake for my swim, I just crouched down, hugged my legs and wept, trying to breathe.

It was a cloudy day, and about 85 degrees. When I cried myself out, I meditated. I felt better—and had the strength to move down the rock for a swim.

When I put my foot down on the only stepping-place on the rock, I saw the hatching nymph … in the exact place where I always put my foot. I couldn’t have missed her. I was fascinated! Such a gift that nature presented that day to inspire me—the birth of a dragonfly.
