One of the things we celebrate at Bone + Marrow is how each individual uniquely shows up in the world. More often than not, we curate Enneagram gifts, personality gifts, and holiday gifts based on what makes us unique, but every now and then we like to highlight the real people behind the labels, or in the case, the Enneagram types.
Meet KC. This mama, photographer, wife, and small business owner is telling us all about her holiday traditions today and how her Enneagram type plays a role in the holidays.
May you be inspired to see, know, and celebrate PEOPLE this year alongside each of the holidays we celebrate.
KC, tell us about your holiday’s.
Holidays for me are all about gathering with the people I love. Friends or family. and eating gooooooooood food.
So, what’s your favorite part of this season?
My favorite part of the season is the reminder to sloooooow down. I think it can feel frantic and busy but I am always reminded and reminding myself to slow down and enjoy and soak it in.
As an Enneagram 3, what do you value or expect during the holidays?
This is where I probably don’t match my Enneagram type but I am constantly looking to check off my bucket list holiday must dos. Pumpkin patches, baking cookies, cutting down a Christmas tree, etc.
Tell us how knowing the Enneagram has affected or changed how you show up during the holidays.
Maybe that is why I resonate with the rest. My tendency as a type 3 would be to go go go, but the freedom to rest and relax and be present is such a gift.
Tell us about your favorite holiday tradition growing up, and why it was meaningful to you.
As a family every year we would watch It’s a Wonderful Life while decorating the tree. It’s always so fun to me to go through all of our old decorations and remember the past. And that movie is aways such a great reminder of the value of a man outside of his accomplishments. I have always loved how the community rallied around him. While he thought he was a failure for not chasing his dreams and leaving the town, he had such a huge positive impact the people around him.
Oh we love getting to know more about KC and the holiday traditions and expectations that go along with it.
