Hand Letter Q Inspiration
The letter Q is such a weird letter. For one thing, it’s not in very many common words so we don’t use it that often. But also, it really just looks different. Lowercase Q is just an oval and then the bottom half of the letter f. Uppercase Q is just an O and then a little mark through it. That seems easy enough right? But whoever thought of putting a little line through an O to make a Q? And have you seen some fancy script or old style uppercase Q’s? Some of them totally look made up! But sometimes it’s ok not to understand everything.
We may try to understand everything because it makes us more confident when we know more. Of course, we want to know as much as we can about the thing we want to be confident in. However, we don’t want to lose our sense of wonder. It’s ok not to understand everything because it helps us feel like there is more to learn. Confidence isn’t knowing everything, confidence is being willing to learn anything. And along with that, confidence is knowing that you don’t know everything.
So instead of getting down about it, today let’s be excited about all the things we get to learn!
