Day 1 of my Rejection Therapy (see previous post): Well, I succeeded! I am done for today, I received my first rejection. And to be honest it didn’t feel good at all. Nope. A potential client that I would have loved to work with, decided to postpone working. Yep. Then I remembered a mountain trail my ex-husband and I once walked. It was very steep. The steps got very high. I got very scared. When we finally reached the top, I curled up in a little bundle of pure fear. It took minutes before I had the courage to look around. And then I was blown away by the view: mountain tops all around me, as far as my eye could reach. Fantastic. And I realize that all I need to do, is keep going, enjoy my path, celebrate my efforts, and trust that I will LOVE the top.
After one potential client considers postponing collaboration, and the other one hasn’t responded yet, this video is a gift of God, telling me to open my heart to the world, so the world can open up to me. Watching it, I cried multiple times, realizing how beautiful we all are, and how rejection is an essential part of improving ourselves and taking the next step on our path.
