Rejection => Sad/Mad or Motivated?

I posted this yesterday morning after receiving an email I had hoped would have different content:


I was happy to see a great reaction to my Facebook post, so I thought I’d share it here on the blog, too, for those of you who don’t already follow The Chic Life Facebook page. And for anyone curious about my volunteer offer, I haven’t heard back yet. I do hope they let me help with the event!

I also made this graphic in case anyone wants to share/pin/etc. this fabulous quote:


So, if you didn’t weigh in on Facebook already, how do you handle rejections and obstacles?

I choose to let them be inspiration. The glass is half full if I see it that way.

  1. I guess it depends on what the rejection is for. But generally I take it with an “it is what it is” mentality and move on. Being a poet who continuously submits their work to magazines and publishers and also subjects herself to the whims of strangers to judge me on a stage makes rejection a common part of life lol. I guess I used to get upset but in time I’ve adapted to understand not every opportunity, no matter how big or shiny, is the right opportunity. I’m sorry you didn’t get the workshop but I’ll cross my fingers about the chance to volunteer!
