Hello there wonderful person,
How was your day 8 of lockdown?
Mine was a very productive day.
I made the above art which is a part of an art challenge, Sktchy's #30faces30days, which is an international commmunity of artists. We get a muse in our inbox every day, and all of us draw the same muse. I decided to add the words to mine. I used an ordinary ink pen to make this one. I have posted the process of making it in my Instagram stories, which you can check out if you like.
I completed reading a book (Murakami's Dance Dance Dance); I have posted a review on my instagram in my stories, and also added it to the 'highlights' Books 1 and Books 2, where you can see my reviews of over 60 books.
I also did an intense work out. Check out my friend's page for daily home workouts for losing weight and belly fat which you can do without any equipment. (Especially check today's post)
If you have ever failed, then you know the sharp sting of failure. The feeling of inadequacy that washes over you. Don't give up.
If I had given up after my second book (Life is What You Make it) was rejected over 40 times, I would not have been where I am today. Today the book has sold over a million copies and has been translated into so many Indian languages and also Turkish. (My other books have been tranlated too)
Use the pain of rejection and channel it into something productive. Try a different avenue. Let it rest for a while. Then knock on a different door.
Bottle up that pain and plough through. Even after all of that, if it doesn't happen, then it means that your path was different, you learnt the lessons you were meant to and it is time to move on.
Leave me a comment, here in my comment box,(head over to my blog if you are reading this in your inbox) and I will definitely try and reply.
Chin up. Smile! We're all isolated--together :)
Come back tomorrow and leave me a comemnt today!
Lots of love
