Rejection…or the fine art of how to take bad news

These days I feel as though I’m constantly receiving bad news…from the typical “thanks, but no thanks” from potential employers to unanswered texts and every talented celebrity ever keeling over with a quickness (thanks a lot, 2016).

Does all of this bad news and constant rejection get me down?  Of course it does.  Do I let it keep me down?  Oh hell no.  

I see life like one big infomercial:

“Hey, Amy!  Husband left you?  Got a job you hate?  Feel lonely?  Well, I’ve got some news for you!  You’re going to go on regardless of what happens to you!  You’re going to put one foot in front of the other and try not to obsess about all of the garbage you’re wading through!  Think you can’t?  Too bad!  You have to!”

But wait!  There’s more!

“With all of this bad comes comes…(wait for it)…MORE BAD NEWS!  It never ends!  Your ups will always be countered by more downs!  AND THAT’S OK!  Without downs, you’d never know what ups were!  So get it together!  Put things into perspective and move on!  There’s always something new on the horizon!  It may be good, and it may be terrible!  Life is one big, strange grab bag of hoozi-whatsits and gobbledygook…and guess what…FOR A LIMITED TIME ONLY…it’s all yours!”

It’s what you do with what you’ve got and how you deal with what you’re given that really matters.  

You’ve got this.  You really do.  If you don’t…then talk to someone you trust.  It’s ok to reach out.  It’s ok to feel vulnerable, and it is most definitely ok to lean on others.  I do.  

Keep talking, keep focus, keep processing, keep it 💯.  ❤️
