RE: A renewed point of view

Have you ever noticed that most words starting with re are positive words? They reenforce something. Make it better.

Think about it.

Revise

Rework

Redo

Rewrite

We use the above actions to make our work as good as it can be.

And then, there's another re word that we don't usually associate with good at all: Rejection.

Rejection: A gentle push in a new and better direction.

Yes. That definition is much better, don't you think?

Jessica, have you ever thought about being a therapist/psychologist/counselor? It seems like every post is so comforting and brings the warm fuzzies! :)

I love this perspective of rejection.

Oh, I LIKE that! :)

Yes, rejection from one can put you in the hands of someone much more brilliant and make you hone your work into a greater piece. You just never know...but I like how you phrase it. Thanks! :D

LOL Lila... No I haven't. That would take a lot of... work. ;) We all go through so many ups and downs with the whole writing process, that I like to share ways to sometimes see things in a more positive point of view;)

Linda - me too. Thinking that's one of those things I'm going to have to hang above my computer!

Regina - So true! And you're welcome! =)

I like that. Let's hope for "reward" too. :)

Jessica Hill said...

Ah, I love that definition! Much better than what we've been programmed to think so far. :)

A gentle push? Or kick in the butt?
Guess it depends on the day...

It is!
Now someone stick an 're' in front of ctiticize, because by definition is IS to make something better!

Love the theory - can the re-defining of rejection make it hurt a bit less too?

I love your definition of rejection and I've found it true for myself.
