The Kindred & Co. blog is here for you - resources & rhythms to practice being and doing; stories from us & the community in our pursuit of living as human beings; business behind the scenes (BTS) announcements & celebrations.
I have a confession. In April I jumped on a call with this guy named Jake and Jake, along with his coworker Stephanie, offered Kindred a huge opportunity to take Kindred to a whole new level. An opportunity that would open doors to huge brand names like Paper Source, Uncommon Goods, Barnes & Noble, etc. […]
Ever have that moment when you’ve found an outdated planner you totally forgot about? Or when you rediscovered a planner you only used for one month? Or maybe you’re curious to start using a planner, but now they’re all outdated, or you’re going to be missing four months of the year? Or maybe you want […]
April showers bring May flowers…and spring cleaning. Now let me be clear, I never really bought into the whole spring cleaning idea until a couple years ago, when I realized that the small spaces of Boston weren’t conducive to keeping all of your items out and about all the time. I’m thinking mostly my winter […]
Let’s chat pandemic reflections. And before you tap exit on this post, let me frame the conversation for us. Recently, I listened to a talk by psychiatrist Dr. Curt Thompson about people, stories, and memories. He was sharing how we so often tend to hide the parts of our stories and selves we deem as […]
One of my 2022 goals and rhythms I wanted to grow in is holding better work/life boundaries, therefore creating more space and leading to greater rest. For me this looks like not checking work emails on Saturdays, not checking work related items before 7AM, and ending work tasks by 5PM. At the beginning of February, […]
Perhaps best of all, we passed the (virtual) baton of encouragement around and took turns hoping on each other’s behalf…
While the year was difficult, I would dare 2020 and COVID and anything else to try and change the spirit of the holiday season. There are definitely changes needed – smaller gatherings, more snail mail (my fave), an acknowledgement of the challenges and losses of the year, etc. But there is still joy.
While all of it was true and I wouldn’t take back or change any of my words, I do want to take time now, on the six monthaversary (I made that up and spellcheck isn’t pleased) to share the joyous lessons I’ve been learning and the celebrations that have happened along the way. Not to be boastful, but to help me take pause to celebrate, be grateful, and show you all how integral you’ve been in this journey.
At the end of every month we write a reflection blog post that correlates with the reflection questions in the Kindred Planner.
Consider this your invitation to reflect along with us, coffee (or tea) in one hand and Kindred Planner (or journal) in the other.
Your worth, who you are and who you are becoming are so important to the heart of Kindred & Co. that we put together a series of blog posts to help you practice being.
Sweet like honey are the encouraging stories you'll find here.
Read the stories from our community gathered here! Some stories of K&Co. products, yes, but more important, stories of how they are living as human beings, finding their identity first and foremost in their inherent worth.
From the moments that have shaped Kindred & Co. to the big dreams seen fulfilled to the best roundup of YOUR kindred stories, here are our favorites posts.
