Rejection is Protection

Rejection is protection is my all-time favorite saying. It's a perspective that many people find hard to accept right away but after a few experiences of witnessing the benefits of rejection, they get it and live by it. I've proven it to be true in every aspect of my life.

I'm talking about the rejection you experienced when that job interview, that guy, that friend, that casting director, said "no". Some people look at it as rejection, I look at it as protection. Although, "no" is tough word to swallow at times, if you see it my way, no means a big "yes" to something better. 

Try this example. Out of nowhere, a guy you really like has abruptly stopped calling you. First you go over what you could of possibly done to chase him away and start to get down on yourself. A few months later, you're happy in a budding relationship with someone who has everything you were looking for. What happened there is God or the Universe (or whatever higher power you believe in) protected you from something that wasn't for you. 

Rejection can protect your heart.

From this moment on, don't think of the disappearing acts of your love interests as rejection, start to think of them as as protection. Any time a person has abruptly left my life, I've eventually found out their departure was a blessing. Move on and leave room for something better to enter your life. 

"Rejection is protection" is my favorite saying because I know it to be true. I've proven it to be true. From losing a business deal to losing a relationship, if you wait, time will show you the benefit those moments of rejection. 

So the next time you feel rejected, let it go and tell yourself "rejection is protection".  Something better is heading your way because better is what you deserve. Let it go. 



  1. Okay, I think I can roll with this phrase on a daily basis and stay positive:)

Parkas for 2015 Winter in Toronto

2015's fall/winter in Toronto has been pretty mild but the cold, snowy days of winter have started. If you don't have a good winter coat yet, I suggest you get out there and find one ASAP. Finding the right coat at a good price is not easy but I think I can help.

Check post, updated in 2018, on where I've find warm winter coats or parkas in Toronto.

Here are some places where I think you may get lucky...

From Curly to Straight in Less Than 1 Hour

My hair has grown a lot since I stopped relaxing. The transition took a long time, about two years, so I'm not about to damage it again. Wearing my hair natural has helped my hair to gain strength and thickness. But sometimes I just want to wear it straight and that means being careful not to damage it.

You've been sending me question about blowouts and how I go from curly to straight without doing severe damage. When it comes to hair growth, I have two key pieces of advice for you. Make sure to give your natural hair moisture and go the extra mile to protect it from heat. That's how I achieved the results in the before and after growth pic below.

These results are all me. I haven't been to a hairstylist in a very long time. Not because I can't find a good one, there are many talented stylists in Toronto. I just prefer to do my hair myself myself. Actually, anyone that knows me will tell you that I LOVE♥ doing my own hair. It comes out exactly how I want it to.


Von Doughnuts on Danforth

The doughnut in this pic is not just any doughnut, it's a Caramel Salt N' Pepa doughnut from Von Doughnuts. It is absolutely delish! I discovered Von one evening strolling along the Danforth with my family after dinner. As soon as we saw the big orange sign and my daughter's favorite word "Doughnuts", we had to check it out.

I'm hooked now but not just because of the doughnuts. I absolutely love the vibe of this place. It's just chill. The people who work there make it even better. My favorite is Nora, we bonded over doughnuts. Well, actually, she's the only Von employee I have met.  As you can see in the pick below, by the time we left, Nora was blowing good-bye kisses. We love her and we'll be back.

We dropped in a little too close to closing time so we only had the Caramel Salt N' Pepa and a few lightly sugared doughnut holes to choose from. But Miss Nora made sure we knew what doughnuts to come back for by reading off the list of flavors …
