1. Creating Space for Women
We all have a gift - something that has been divinely placed within us, allowing us to the opportunity to share our wealth with the world. Kenya’s gift of writing, healing, and educating is what she uses to inspire and motivate other women to “do something new, to look at things differently, to feel better about themselves.” Ready for some advice? Acknowledge and own your gifts. The next time you're feeling afraid or insecure about your business, ideas, or creations, remember your gift was specially made for you. Someone, somewhere, is waiting for you to share.
2. One on One Time With Nature
As the founder of The Outdoor Journal Tour, it’s no secret that Kenya enjoys being one with the natural world. She credits her ability to connect to something bigger to mother nature. “Mother Nature just kind of finds its way to grow and thrive, no matter what environment it's in. That's very inspiring to me, that helps me to kind of reconnect and ground…” Spring is here friends - it's time to get back outside.
3. A Card Pull A Day
Another way Kenya makes time to connect with herself and the universe is by setting aside private time to pull cards, reflect, and journal about the cards she’s received. She loves a “sassy” oracle deck and for all of you card deck pulling folks, you know that the sassier the deck, the more hard-hitting the message will be. Fun fact: during the pandemic, Kenya created her very own card deck called the Nature Meditations Deck. It’s a deck that can be used while exploring or spending time in nature, but don’t let a rainy day stop you from pulling a card. You can use this deck while inside and still receive the message that is just for you.
