Yesterday I was (re)watching Downton Abbey and this quote (the title of this post) hit home with me.
Yesterday I didn’t know today I would be rejected by the Public Education Secretary to go on a Scholarship to teach Spanish in France. But somehow the quote resonated with me, as a foreshadow of what I would find out today. It’s as if I knew, deep down that I wasn’t gonna get the scholarship. I don’t know how but my intuition has gotten better over the years. I am learning to listen and sometimes I don’t like what it has to say.
I know not getting this scholarship means I have bigger and better things ahead of me.
I know my current job is not where I should be.
I know this first try is not a fall, but a stumble.
And I am just certain that everything happens for a reason.
I won’t give up, I’ll just work harder because no one hits the bullseye with the first arrow.
