About Write In The Feels
Hey, I'm Kyndra!
Owner and designer of KynYouBelieveIt (among many other things.) In my 3+ years of running my business, I've found a pretty solid routine of creating seasonal collections with my hand-drawn designs.
When I started dreaming of the 2022 Mental Health collection, I knew I wanted to introduce a mental health journal as its "leading lady." As someone who uses journaling as a stress-relief outlet, I wanted to create something that encouraged self-love, gratitude, and most importantly – feeling your feels.
During the weekends of March and April 2022, I spent countless hours in my local coffee shop pouring over what this journal could be. I knew I was on the brink of something special, and I wanted it to be perfect.
On April 16, 2022, I sent a simple text to my sister: "I THINK I'M DONE." Her response: "I freaking love it." And so – the KYBI mental health journal was born.
Why am I crying in the club rn?
I'm not kidding when I say the mental health journal I created was the source of manyyyyy tears. At first, it was because I couldn't figure out how to get it ~just right~, and I was putting way too much pressure on myself.
Later, it was because I was so proud of what I had created. I cried in the coffee shop multiple times as I looked at the journal that was coming to fruition, knowing it was going to have a positive impact on other people's lives.
But because I'm me (and because Momma Bailey taught me to give back when I can), I couldn't stop there. After owning and running my business for a little over three years, I decided it was time to do more with my platform other than make and sell pretty things.
In May 2022, I soft-launched Write In The Feels: a program that aims to get mental health journals in the hands of as many people as possible – whether they have the means to purchase one or not.
And here we are!
Ultimately, my business and my products exist to make life feel a little bit lighter – because let's be honest – it is so hard sometimes.
Write In The Feels is an extension of that mission, with the goal being to remind people that they are never alone in their mental health journey, and it is always okay to ask for help. The program is in full-swing now, and I've had the privilege of sending free journals to recipients all over the U.S. Journal donations are available on a no-strings-attached basis; all the recipient has to do is fill out a quick form.
Of course – the journals are available for purchase as well. For every two journals sold, I donate one to someone in need. Additional journals are funded by generous donations from the KYBI community, and it is truly magical to see the faith that other people have in these items.
This is just the beginning for Write In The Feels, and I know it's on its way to big things. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for being part of this journey.
