Updates and Setbacks

"Anytime I thought I was being rejected from something good, I realized that God was just redirecting me to something better."

I'm not going to lie.  This is not at all how I feel right now but I just thought I would start this post off with something positive, before I completely undermined the whole thing.  I found out a short while ago (within the past hour) that I did not get an offer at the firm I was really hoping for.  I could fill this post with all sorts of inspirational sayings and stories about how this is just a small hurdle that I'll get over and then great things will happen blah blah blah.  I just don't feel or believe that right now, so I'll spare you guys and myself.

This week just hasn't been the greatest week for me at all ... so I'm pretty down.  Unfortunately, I have a lot of things that I need to get done so it's just one of those moments in life where you have to suck it up and pretend that you're happy just to get through it all.

What does this mean moving forward?  Who knows ... who the hell knows.

It's about 9:30 PM here, so it's a little late for me to shift gears into bounce back mode -- I'll start that in the morning.  For now, I guess I have the night to think of a new game plan?  In either case, I'll leave you with this line from Jhene Aiko whose attitude I appreciate a little more right now.

"I been through some shit man, but I be on my shit man."

No matter what obstacles you're thrown, just remember to always stay on your shit, man.


  1. Sorry to hear but it always seems like things have a way of working out for you so just hang in there :)

  2. "anytime you suffer a setback or disappointment, put your head down (and sulk).
    (then raise your head up) and plow ahead."

    i added my own little twist to this quote but up at 'em girl, an amazing job awaits you!

  3. Girl, this has been my entire week. It just seemed like I could not get a break from bad lucks and rejection. I've cried so much, I'm drained. It's hard and I wish I had something positive to comment on but I really don't other than it sucks and trusting that God is always watching out for us is easier said than done.

    xoxo, jully:)

    1. Sorry to hear that you also had a rough week. I totally understand the feeling though. Here's to hoping that the coming days are better for both of us :)
