“Hi friends! How did your third week of the month go? How has it been practicing being intentional this month? I finished reading the book “Educated” by Tara Westover last week (mostly because I had to return it to my mother-in-law before we saw her) and it was a good one. Hard to read, sometimes […]
This week we want to share with you our third overall goal for the year – reading. To be honest, I don’t really have any deep significant reasons as to why reading is one of the goals. There isn’t some deep heart issue I’m trying to address or an internal battle I’m wrestling through.
None of that. Rather, reading is a goal for the year because I desire to be a reader.
This week we want to share with you our second overall goal for the year – clean eating. For me, using the phrase “clean eating” as opposed to “healthy eating” helps me focus not on the vague idea of “healthy” but rather the specifics of what a changed diet will do for my body, externally and internally.
I quickly realized that October I kept my head down while I rushed from one thing to the next. But that’s not what I want my life or this season to be about. So to practice greater intentionality, find more joy, I’m doing a gratitude challenge (#gratefulkindredplanner). Will you join me?
I think when we think of being intentional, we tend to mean to mean being thoughtful, proactive, and productive. We typically say we are going to be intentional about things like spending time with friends, or how we spend our free time, or about sticking to a certain eating plan or workout. So I’m going to speak more to that side of being intentional. However, wanting to fully acknowledge that sometimes being intentional does mean being intentional to create spaces for self-care, for the life-giving things and for random exploration and fun to happen.
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.
