Fear of Rejection?

I have never been rejected.

True statement. Never been rejected from/by a college, job, boy, internship or  scholarship. Why?

Because I don’t go for do things  unless I am 100% sure I will get them.

As I am getting older my perfect record is soon coming to an end. It’s not rejection that I fear- its more why should I bother doing something that may not get?

I don’t take chances in life.

I don’t set goals that I won’t reach like- lose ten pounds in X amount of months.

I set goals that I DO– last summer when I set out to lose 19 pounds I made sure I met that goal.

I am sure my steadfastness will come in handy in the future. But I want to take risks NOW, I want to take the chance that I might not get in. Otherwise I fear that I may never try anything.

But who knows I may never lose my perfect record! ( Wishful thinking. I know.)

Anyways, more on my risk-taking life later.

This weekend was a two-for-one-deal with my family- Thanksgiving and       Eid (Muslim holiday)

It was so much fun to spend time with family and friends 🙂

For Thanksgiving Eve I had two of my friends over and my mom made an Indian and American inspired feast :)!

  • Stuffing
  • Greek pasta salad with feta
  • Turkeyyy
  • Rice with Chickpeas
  • Cranberry Sauce
  • Mashed potatoes

 

Then it was on to Eid

With all that was going on I forgot that I was still and school and I have to gear up for finals week. Which is why I am currently at Borders getting working done with their new free Wi-Fi!

I am so blessed and thankful to be living a fabulous and healthy life.

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend with their family and loved ones 🙂

  1. Like you, I haven’t really dealt with a lot of rejection when it comes to schools or jobs. Sometimes what i end up doing turns out to not be the best path for me, but i think the advantag of being young is having so many options open. And taking risks! Have a happy eid!

  2. i know what u mean with rejection…risks though are such a part of life i’ve learned! & yummm to the greek pasta salad 🙂
