It's no secret to those that know me that I am a fan of Keeping up with the Kardashians much to my husbands horror!
But a quote I heard from Kris Jenner has had quite a profound impact on the way I look at rejection...
If the door doesn't open, it's not your door!!!!
Sometimes we get devastated by a no when we don't know what is around the corner.
Last year I went to audition for a lead role in an ITV drama, I did an amazing audition and was looking forward to some positive news but a few weeks later I found out I didn't get the part. I was a little disappointed but I quietly said to myself well if the door didn't open it wasn't my door. A few weeks later I got cast in Maleficent 2 acting opposite Michelle Pfeiffer! Had I got the drama, there is no way I would have been able to film for Disney! Waaaay better right. Plus I saw the drama and thought so glad I got the Maleficient job instead, tee hee!!! The film is out next month!!!!
So, if the door doesn't open, it's not your door and your door is guaranteed to be much better that the one that just closed in your face!
