Redemption and Rejection

After the long weekend break, I was very eager to start the week. I felt refreshed, optimistic and ready to accomplish everything. I started my office routine after my early morning class. I listed the tasks that needs to be done and checked my email. And that's it! In a snap, my entire day was ruined by a letter of rejection.

My positive outlook is gone.

Having my desktop computer and internet connection, I tried to divert my attention to other meaningful thoughts. Someone out there perhaps led me to this inspiring video clip

I hope the disheartening email only serves as a sign that I should consider another try, another hope to build another redeeming chapter of my life

  1. I think that video was an absolute sign that you should keep on going. :) There are bigger things awaiting you in the future. :) 2012 is going to be a magical year with many blessings!! You are amazing, never give up hope!

    I hope you're having an amazing day!!

    p.s. I JUST realized your from Manila! I never realized that before.. For some reason I received two emails as of late about Manila! I think that was a gentle nudge from the Universe to get back here! .. signs come in all ways, don't they? :)

    1. I agree Amanda. In one way or another some things are not really brought about by mere coincidence.. They are signs :) Thank you for your uplifting words.

  6. I know of many successful writers who were rejected again and again. The writer of THe Help was rejected several times, but now a movie was made and it has an Oscar nomination!!! Don't give up! This is all a learning experience! God bless you! Patsy from

  7. Every rejection letter brings you one step closer to your goal. Onwards and upwards! :)

  8. Print out every rejection and keep them. Then when you reach your goal, either make a scrapbook or wallpaper a wall with the rejection letters. Then laugh!!! :D

    Don't let the letter disappoint you. You will succeed! Nice video, by the way....
