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.
We do ourselves a disservice if we choose to set goals and expectations outside of the context around us. And while those contexts will always impact our lives, right now, they ever more so do and we need to create the space and flexibility to adjust with them.
Ironically (or not), the reflection question for May was all about rest. While I feel like I rested well this month, I think it’s telling that I’m still trying to push beyond maybe what my body thinks it’s up for and asking for even more rest. More on this below:
How are you feeling about the goals you have set for yourself? Do you feel you are on track to accomplish them this year?
One of the rhythms I know I’m awful at balancing is the rhythm of work and rest. I can often fall into a trap that I don’t deserve rest until I’ve worked enough, but as I’ll share more later, this just doesn’t work. I need rest to remind me I’m not superwoman and to be restored for a new week ahead. For myself, this rhythm of rest is called Sabbath. It is a spiritual discipline I am hoping to incorporate into 2020 and one I hope to encourage you to try as well, whether you call it Sabbath or something less spiritual.
Regardless of where we’re at with our goals, we know that at some point the goals we’ve written and the headway we’ve made will start to plateau and maybe even drop. To see goals and dreams come to fruition for the entire year takes us being intentional, and sometimes doing that on your own is pretty hard.
So we’ve decided to dedicate the month of February to practicing being intentional.
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.
