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.
This month’s check-in question was kind of funny to read and hard to think about because while the first half of March felt relatively normal, the second half has felt totally abnormal and long. I saw a meme this morning that said ‘Welcome to the 301st Monday of March,’ and it felt very real.
“I suppose we are all on a quest for identity. Identity tells us to whom and to what we belong. Belonging, in turn, is a universal human desire. I do not actually believe that everyone wants to be famous, nor rich. We want to be famous because we want acceptance. We want money because it can shallowly buy us that.”
I started the following year full of ambition, motivation and anticipation. I vision-boarded the heck out of all of my dreams for that year: travelling to dream destinations, more creativity and color, growing in my faith, crushing it at work, marrying the love of my life… You seriously could not bottle my excitement.
But, 2019 was a wasteland.
“When your focus is on what you do, you are able to measure certain things as a success or failure, good or bad. But when you are intentionally seeking who you are, there is no such thing as success or failure.”
“I was simply trying to delete a different account (deleting an Instagram account is way harder than you would think) and was horrified to see that account was still there but my business page was gone. I oddly felt like I had gotten laid off and lost everything – thousands of followers, content, and connections with other vendors in my field.”
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.
