At the beginning of each month, I pick 3Qs – a question, a quote, and a random Q – that I enjoyed or pondered over during the previous month. Join me for a few Qs:
My husband, Seth, sent this to me in mid-January after seeing it in a Tim Ferris email. At the time, I was feeling a little low. Around the same time, I realized that within a three week time, I had gone through major job transition, celebrated Christmas, welcomed the New Year, attempted to goal set for a year of unknowns, sent my children back to school during a pandemic, and watched an insurrection on the nation’s capital. It was A LOT, and it was ok to be a little down. This question was a reminder to be grateful and a lesson that it’s good and healthy to see even the low points of life as gifts to enjoy.
I had heard this one before, but I was reminded of it again while reading Mark Batterson’s new devotion in the Bible App (read something similar). Again, January was a challenging month, but it was an opportunity to get rely on God, rest in His goodness, and await my next steps. Sometimes it felt like I was drowning in the wave rather than kissing it, but either way, I had the Rock.
Random Q – Queen
This month’s random Q stands for queen, and it goes to Amanda Gorman. The world knew that the United States was getting a new president on January 20, but we had no clue that we were getting a new icon. I stood in awe in my living room as Amanda Gorman recited her inaugural poem and laughed to myself as tears unexpectedly streamed down my face. It was a moment I didn’t know I needed. I can’t wait to see what she brings us in the future.
That’s it for KG’s 3Qs for January 2021. See you next month.
