My day zigged when I thought it should zag. That moment when you see the email of your dreams in the inbox and you know:
One magical click later and it was all floating away, like an errant flip flop in the ocean waves.
Then the next email hits and I’m so overwhelmed with happiness. You see, I’m headed into a new adventure as a film reviewer for PURSUE magazine! Happy dance! I’m so new that my bio isn’t even up yet. 🙂
(I’m a real author…almost…)
Still, the ebb and flow of a single day is nothing new to me or you. Just wanted to toss out a word of encouragement to you, my reader; some days you’re the fly and then you’re the windshield, within thirty seconds of one another. This in no way means that I didn’t mourn a missed opportunity or have a moment of silence for a rejection. But I didn’t wallow in the self-doubt and pity (although it’s squishy and warm sometimes). It’s not the first nor the last rejection I’ll have.
Take a breath, thank God for the opportunity and move on. Learn, relearn and grow. Put yourself out on the line again.
Look at me, all preachy today. Excuse me while I fall off my soapbox.
