Love this Amy!! Beautiful! So well articulated. Thank you <3
Thanks so much, Stephanie!! So much love to you! xo
Gorgeous Amy. I’ve been trying to apply this theory to things that aren’t necessarily rejections but things that are less than awesome. We both know I loathe my job but sure as fuck beats unemployment and a lot of other shitty low paying jobs out there. Its at this moment protecting me from starvation and homelessness! I like to think of it as finding the silver lining. I’ve spent the last 6 months bundling up a lot of shitty things and deciding they were protection. Protection from a life of unhappiness! If all those shitty things didn’t happen I’d never have hit rock bottom and been forced into doing my own work. Crap friendship ended, met an AMAZING new friend. Hated my degree, realised my genuine calling…I could go on. Bless you mate x
Hey, Chenea! Thanks so much for watching! I LOVE the idea of simply CHOOSING that these things are all about protection! Genius! Protection from a lifetime of unhappiness! You know I’m a HUGE fan of perspective work. It’s all about how we CHOOSE to look at our circumstances. So glad to see you continuing your internal work! Rock on! xo
I can definitely look back and see how this applies in my past. Now I just need to work on recognizing it in the present, for peace of mind. Thanks so much for your fabulous videos, blog and newsletters!! <3
Lisa! Thank you so very much for saying that about my work! Totally fills my heart to know it is helping others! Thank you so much for watching and commenting and keep in mind that nomatter what you are going through, there is a lesson. So, instead of asking myself, “Why me?” I always switch it to, “What am I meant to learn in this process?” Feel a hell-of-a lot better. So much love to you!

Hey Amy! I needed this video today, so I stopped on by to rewatch it. I was rejected from a course I really, really wanted. I was ready to quit my job and go back into school, I was preparing myself for big changes, and finding that I hadn’t made the cut was really hard – is really hard, right now in this precise moment!
But, you know, if it wasn’t for doing some work with myself this year (with your help!) I would never have applied at all. And the rejection doesn’t mean that I’m not a great writer (though it is easy to sink into that and believe it), it just means this wasn’t the right thing for me. Who knows what’s around the corner? And now that I’ve applied here, and gone through the process, I’m ready for the next time.
Right now, yes, it is shitty. That really struck a chord with me. I’m still sore and sad about it, but I know better than to stay in this place for too long.
Thank you for this post. It is helping me.
Carol Anne! Thank you so much for sharing! I am beyond honored that my work has been a small part of your journey. I am so thrilled you are truly finding your power… even when things aren’t ideal. You got this, girl! xo
