Blogging Your Blessings Sunday 11/18

Sunday, November 18, 2007

This week I'm blessed because I allowed myself to take a chance. I had let a completed story, the first one I'd completed in years, sit on my hard drive for just about two years because it had been rejected. I resent it out last week, and within two days I heard back with an acceptance, the first ever for one of my fictional stories.

I didn't give up, as much as I wanted. I tried again, even though I was scared to do so. I don't deal with rejection well, but then again who does. I let rejection turn me off and retreat, and for the past couple of years I've been in retreat mode. It's something I'm working on, and I'm blessed because I tried again, and someone out there was willing enough to give me a chance.

That is great news. Do not let your work sit unread because of rejection.

Have a great week.
