“As I look back on my life, I realize that every time I thought I was being rejected from something good, I was actually being redirected to something better.” ~ Steve Maraboli
This is the quote of the year.
Read it. Read it again.
Let it sink in.
We are never rejected. There are no mistakes. No could haves. No should haves.
Everything that happens comes along because it simply needs to.
Fallbacks are crucial parts of the puzzle.
Not getting what we want can be a huge step toward reaching a bigger dream.
So relax. Release control. Let’s learn from our mistakes and see the bigger picture.
We’re not rejected. We’re redirected.
Redirected to something better and bigger.
Accepting rejection is part of embracing the uncertainty of life.
Uncertainty keeps us on our toes.
It keeps us alert and awake.
Not knowing is beautiful.
Why spend time worrying, judging, fighting, regretting?
All we have to do is believe.
