Amy’s 4 Things

Permission To Disappear, Genetic Testing, Finding Purpose In Life’s Curveballs, TV Show & Game Night Recommendations (5th Thing)

Welcome to the ‘5th Thing’ with Amy & Kat!! Today’s quote is: “It is okay to disappear until you feel like you again.” Kat had to sit with this quote for a second because fully disappearing from life and all of life’s responsibilities is not something she would suggest…but taking time for self-care is very important and you may 100% need to step away from life at times to give back to yourself…refill your cup!! There is also no need to force yourself to show up if you don’t absolutely have to…so that is how we are comprehending this quote. Amy then shares an email from a listener whose dad was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and his particular type got her curious about genetic testing. Shockingly, at age 31, her tests revealed she does in fact have cancer. Our hearts are heavy for this listener…but we hope her email will motivate us all to be proactive with our bodies and that we’ll be encouraged by her mindset. She shared that she’s not a big believer in “everything happens for a reason,” but she very much appreciates what Donald Miller taught us in a previous episode when facing challenges: “What is this preparing me for?” Amy & Kat also share what self-care looks like for them, what TV shows they’re loving right now, and some fun game recommendations…because everyone needs a good game night from time to time!!
