From Good Intentions started 4 weeks ago, but the intent behind it has been around for years. Two girls grew up in New Mexico not crossing paths until 2015. They met and bonded over Brene Brown, introvertedness and a love for cats. From there they talked, shared and decided to give dreams a chance. WHY NOT?
This blog is about leaving behind fear and self doubt. Finding our way in this beautiful life with all the good vibes in our back pocket.
So, want to know more about us? Well, typically we’d first let you know all the things we’re bad at.
NG: I’m bad at making a good first impression and small talk. I’m bad at staying focused and having patience. I’m bad resisting the urge to buy more house plants. I’m bad at reading through my ever growing stacks of comics and books.
AF: I’m bad at waking up early. I’m bad at knowing where to start. I’m also bad at talking on the phone or at parties or large groups. I’m bad at playing it cool in social interactions and I’m bad at blow drying my hair and wearing lipstick.
But, in the spirit of …. positivity and “good intentions” here’s a few things we’re also really good at.
NG: I’m good at over thinking, daydreaming and worrying. I’m good at listening and remembering seemingly insignificant details. I’m good at sorting through the flower bunches at the grocery store and picking the best ones. I’m good at becoming inspired and planning a lot of projects. I’m good at not finishing projects.
I’m good at a lot of bad things and bad at a lot of good things. And while life usually doesn’t turn out the way I planned, I always felt I had the best of intentions.
AF: I’m good at observing the world around me. I’m good at dry humor and mean looks. I’m good at getting the best photo on my first try. I’m good at making soup and I’m good at self reflection. I’m good at strategy and making up a plan to accomplish anything from Sunday brunch to a 17 day Scandinavian vacation.
I’m good at having lots of wonderful, beautiful expectations for life and when, sometimes they fall short I’m good at trying to find the hidden gems anyways.
So, there you have it. We are both fairly practical people, which means we can’t just forego responsibility to become creative hippies. We can however, try and live our most creative lives where we’re at now (yes, right now) and do that without fear. Fear of judgement, self-absorption, self-criticism…But to be honest, we’re still pretty scared so please just bear with us.
From Good Intentions is our way of turning our daydreaming into doing. This doing is something that’s just for us, but we hope that we can connect and inspire you along the way too. We want to take our ideas, however wild, creative of funny and celebrate them. We are trying to live with the best of intentions because…WHY NOT?
