” As I look back on my life, I realize that every time I was rejected from something good, I was actually being re-directed to something better.” ~Steve Maraboli.
This is so true in so many cases. So many times either me or someone I care about feels like they are being rejected from a great opportunity. It can be really discouraging in the moment. Then you realize you didn’t get it because something better was waiting for you.
It is hard when you set a dream before you and it doesn’t happen like you plan, but isn’t it a wonderful feeling to know you had someone watching out for you?
It is kind of like your dream job. You don’t get it and it really discourages you, but then a week later you get a better job with a lot more pay. Suddenly you feel like you are back on cloud nine.
Sometimes I admit if a great opportunity didn’t happen even though I did my best, It really makes you think that path is over. Until I stop feeling bad for myself is when I realized all along something much better was waiting for me.
This quote is one I tend to read to remind me it isn’t as bad because it will get better.
