Set It Up

Self-doubt sucks. I have been doubting myself for so long, I just stopped thinking I can do anything I set my mind to and I have been settling for so much in my career. I just gave up.

For the past few months I have been obsessed with this movie called Set It Up, it’s a Netflix original. It is just so relatable to now days and you know that’s exactly what they were doing. I feel so connected to the main character who is just to scared to put herself out there in the work force, afraid of rejection so she just stays in her assistant job, working for someone who makes her miserable but yet is her inspiration.

Rejection Emails

For the past month I have been sending out queries for a literary agent and it has been interesting so far. I have been updating and changing little things for the story for a while, as well as editing so it’s changing. So with each new literary agent I look into I make a note of it, and make sure to send them my updated version of the changes i made to the first chapter they are receiving.

So far I have sent out nine emails to literary agents. I have received three responses back. All rejections. Continue reading “Rejection Emails”

Living Life On Purpose

I love that quote. It’s from the book I was telling you guys about in the last post, You Are A Badass. At the end of Chapter 4 she is talking about one of her clients that go hit really hard with the Big Snooze where obstacle after obstacle hit him as he ventured off on his own trying to make his dreams happen. The poor man got hit by a bus! Among other intense crazy things that any other person would have thrown their hands up in the air and said screw it! I give up! But he didn’t. And this is the part where she says this:

…setting an excellent example for his kids about living life on purpose.”

You Are A Badass

Okay, so I am currently reading this book called You Are A Badass by Jen Sincero and I am obsessed with it! She is speaking to me in ways no other self-help book has. And I really think that it is because she acknowledges the fact that some people think self-help books and finding your faith is a load of crap.

She has such a funny and sarcastic narrative that it is so easy to just keep reading on. She talks about how you need to not live in the past or in the future, living in this moment is the most imperative thing. Because you can’t change the past and you can’t control the future but you can enjoy this moment happening right now. Continue reading “You Are A Badass”
