Today’s episode is a little bit cray cray with lots of silly sayings to help you deal with rejection, loss, disappointment and failure. When you’re a sensitive soul, these things can go straight to our hearts and are really ouchy.  Here’s the thing: in life people and situations will disappoint us. We’re all different and other people aren’t like us. Sadly, the world isn’t always as we wish it was! 

Another way of looking at it is that life isn’t happening to us – it’s happening for us. It’s not personal, it’s showing us the way. In this episode I want to show you how it doesn’t have to be all doom and gloom. When you feel as if it’s not quite going your way, let’s stop and have a think about what’s really going on.
