This year, I experienced more rejection than I was used to and I’m starting to feel my skin thicken.
It did take a while for me to realise that most of the time it really wasn’t about me.
At first I would wallow in the hurt and feel like there was something wrong with me. But with time I’ve come to understand it isn’t always about me.
It could have been my approach to the request (restrategise, cos this isn’t working), it could have been the wrong time (note taken, the universe will let things work out when its time, 1 week/year/decade from now), it could be that the person is going through something at that time (this we can’t control) or they just don’t really need you (find people that do, and honestly it’s an amazing feeling when you’re wholly valued)
I’ve also learnt that it’s how I react to and recover from rejection that’s important. There’s just something about rejection that drives you to go harder. I think I’d been living life routinely, in my comfort zone and this was God’s way of waking me tf up!! (I woke up in beast mode!!)
I know I’m not done growing but I’m grateful for lessons & I know that everything happens for a reason.

Like I mentioned in the video, my love for being in library spaces began in primary school and not a lot of people can say they had/knew of good libraries around them at that age. Enjoying myself in a space like that, created an awareness of a lot of possibilities.
I learned how certain skills you learn by doing and experiencing and how you get inspiration to create things from things around you as well as things you find in books.

I’m off to Minnesota, the land of ten thousand lakes, today! From what I’ve gathered, the weather in Minnesota during the winter is no joke. Not as “mild” as what we get in Chicago. *shivers* I can not imagine what that must be like.
Anyway its summer now and the weather forecasts show it will be in the 80+ range this weekend, so it’s the perfect weekend to take this trip! Yay! Lighter clothes for me. I just wanted to do a post with regards to basic items I carry on my trip. Which I think works for short and long travels.
I remember reading one of beauty blogger, Read more
