Lately, I have been rejected from things left, right and center. It just a time in my life when I’m applying for jobs, and universities and project proposals in school. Handling rejection is no walk in the park, and the worst part is when it becomes so familiar, that it actually scares you. But, if rejection has taught me anything, it is that the plan we once thought was perfect changes, as we change.

Rejection might feel like you’re just having doors being shut in your face constantly, but really it’s just trying to show you a door you always neglected to see.

These quotes are just a few quotes that I read through in order to get through these chaotic time of rejection.

  1. “Rejection doesn’t mean you aren’t good enough; it means the other person failed to notice what you have to offer” – Mark Amend
  2. “Rejection puts you out of your comfort zone which is usually when you’re at your best”—Stewart Stafford
  3. “A rejection is nothing more than a necessary step in the pursuit of success”—Bo Bennett

I hope they help! Have a wonderful day, and remember to always persevere.


Have you ever had those days where you just have to deal with so many things, so many people and just so many emotions just at once? Well, these past two weeks have been like that, hence why I have not uploaded any blog posts.

I wanted to just take a few minutes to give you guys some tips on how to cope with those overwhelming days, weeks, months or even years. These tips obviously do not erase everything that is going on in your life, but hopefully, they’ll give you a minute of peace.

  1. Write it down

Whenever I feel overwhelmed, and I feel like I can’t really talk to anyone, I’ll just write everything I feel down. You could put this into a diary entry, or just on some scrap paper and then throw it away. What this does is let you release everything going on, and lifts a bit of the burden you have been carrying around. I like doing this because I don’t have to explain to anyone, if anything I’m explaining everything to myself, and it helps me clarify what exactly is going on.

  1. Block it out with Music

I don’t recommend you do this too often since it might hurt your ears, but just for one song put on your headphones, or blast your speaker and just dance it out. Lose yourself in the song, because for those few minutes you can feel as if you’re detached from the world and all your problems.

  1. Cry it out

I know that if I’m overwhelmed anything will make me cry, and sometimes if I’m around people I’ll hold it in. But if you’re alone, do not fight back the tears, it helps you feel much better when it is all over. When you cry, it’s like your body is physically letting go of the burden. Some people may think that if you cry when you’re in an overwhelming situation it makes you seem weak, but actually, once the crying session is over you have a bit of a clearer mind and you can properly handle what’s happening to you.

  1. Talk it out

I am the first person to say that I hate telling people my problems especially when there are so many and I can’t wrap my head around it all. Or the classic feeling that you’re disturbing the person’s life, or creating a burden for them. And I’m here to tell you that they will not feel that way. If you have a friendship with this person, or any relationship really remember that it is mutual. They will be there for you when you need them, and you’ll be there for them when they need it. Friends are meant to be there for you when you need the most, so never feel bad for just needing someone to talk to.

I hope these tips help! Please leave any other suggestions down below in the comments!

Have a wonderful day!

How Global Support is Increasing

**Just a disclaimer, I realize that there are thousands of other horrible events that have happened around the world, but the ones mentioned are the ones that affect me the most. If you want to share any other world event that needs attention please leave it down below in the comments! We will be happy to learn and expand our knowledge, and help in any way we can! Thank you. **

On a global scale, we saw Donald Trump get inaugurated as President of the United States, and then a Women’s march, alongside many other groups that opposed Donald Trump.

More recently, we have seen Donald Trump put a ban on Syrian refugees (and Muslims from a total of 7 countries) from entering the United States. He has also signed an anti-abortion executive order and much more.  On Sunday that just passed, we saw a terrorist attack on a mosque in Quebec City that killed 6 people and injured 8 (number as of Monday morning after the shooting).

It has definitely has been a trying time for humanity, but these events definitely did not go unnoticed. In an instant people were protesting the ban of refugees at airports. Huge vigils and support from around the world flooded into the Quebec. There was a Women’s March and many sister marches around the world in solidarity. Quite honestly I think 2017 will be a record year for the number of protests across the world.

The silver lining in these tragic and incomprehensible events is how much stronger humanity has become. We have chosen to unite ourselves, rather than be divided by them. The energy and involvement of people have skyrocketed, and it is the people who are taking things into their hands and joining in movements of solidarity. Our world is no longer made up of countries who do not interfere with each other. On a government level that is still true, but in terms of the population, they have chosen to help in whatever way they can from around the world. The sister marches for the Women’s March in Washington DC were not just in the United States, but they were also around the world. We are moving into a time where the concept of community, is happening on a global scale.

If you need the world’s help, I hope you know that the world is slowly starting to help out more and more, and will defend and help you as much as they possibly can.
