Rejection stings. Badly.
What's the worst that can happen if they tell me "no"? Today, on Friday the 13th, I want to offer support to those who are afraid of rejection. So often we don't venture beyond our comfort zone, thinking, "No one will want to do that with me," or "It will just be a failure." I recently was reminded that even when the original plan gets convoluted because someone turns you down, you might still find joy in the activity or even meet someone with whom you have a connection. Just go for it.
Serendipity is a word that means finding a delightful surprise by chance. These moments come when we are out in the world. Take a risk today. Be your authentic self and find something you'd like to try. The only person saying "no" to you is you.
