Well, my week started in such a “lovely” way : I have been rejected for two jobs in just under five minutes, on a Monday πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

I have to say that it hurt and all the confidence O built around me vanished so quickly. I just wanted to soak and wallow in my own misery. Not talk to anyone. Not engage in any form of communication. Just be on my own with my pain and my thoughts

But, you know what? … It’s two jobs – one of which was within the company that I currently work for and the other for a job that was overwhelmed by the number of participants. It just wasn’t meant to be. I slept on it. I didn’t want to react then and there as usually it’s not a good idea. And I did good. I realised that it’s just two applications. I haven’t tried getting a job for months, I haven’t been through numerous job interviews …. I only applied

Today, I woke up and I smiled. It’s a new day and although rejection is a b..ch and it hurts like Hell …. I have an income, I have a job, I have time to find the right one.

Today I decided to see the blessings in my life! The fact that I woke up is a blessing. The fact that I opened my eyes, I can see, speak, walk, breath, smile, communicate …. these are blessings. I have a roof over my head – a blessing! I can pay for my rent – a blessing!

I am blessed with love, a daughter ❀️, a family, friends … I am rich and I refuse to be put down by two rejections in under 5 minutes πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

What is your blessing for today?
