Kinwomen is a network, not an organisation or a business, just a gathering of women who want to do life well and be able to claim honestly, ‘no regrets’. The network is women only – bringing together women of all ages, cultures, education, abilities and passions to share life and wisdom.

SECRETS IN THE BAY
Is a local community creative photography social media brand, started by Amanda and her local friends. The whole point of the network is to brag about what is beautiful in their local area. Some of their photos and posts have gone to over 100,000 followers
We all need a tribe, a gang, a network, a possie, a gathering and inspiration of women. Last October a group of women retreated together and it birthed the most amazing community of creative women called the inspire collective.

Day 21. What have you been waiting for? Is there anything you have been waiting for that you could actually do today? You know what it is. The first thing that came to your mind?

20. Cafe conversation; self-care. When I write the words ‘self-care’ what is the image that first comes to you? A weird ritual from the self-help section of the Library? Something a psychologist says in passing conversation to sound intelligent? Self-care is simply a list of nurturing things that make you feel loved and well. Each Read more about Day 20: Cafe Conversation about self care.[…]

16. Buy a packet of crayons and colour in. I have found that some of the most lucid moments in my life are those when I am doing something from my childhood.

15. Start a journal for your future husband. One of the greatest ways that I processed the despair of my waiting was continually finding ways to keep my heart hopeful.

14. Go to the movies by yourself. For most of you, I bet this is not a big deal, but for me, I hated going to the movies alone.

13. Clean someone’s house. Lately, I have been learning to let go of my unrealistic expectations of myself and my partner and to love the very ordinary moments of each day.

12. Book a counselling/ mentoring/ pastoral care/ chaplain/ life coach session. I believe we all have something deep within us, that hasn’t yet been expressed.
