It’s not how hard you fall that matters, it’s how high you bounce back.
It would be nice to think that everything in life will always work out how you want it to. But try as you might, sometimes disappointing things happen, no matter how hard you try, nor how deserving you think you are of a certain outcome.
What that impact is, however, is up to you.
It is easy to react in a negative way when negative things come about, especially if you truly had your hopes up. And that is ok, for a while.
After all, we’re only human.
That open window could simply be a learning experience, it could be a new contact you were able to make, or it could be that what you were hoping for was not even right for you and you were saved from a big mistake. Who knows?
