secret dream for IF and "red"


















Rejection is what you make it. You can let it defeat you; you can use it to sow the seeds of bitterness, hatred, revenge and destruction, or you can use it to nurture a secret dream that will one day blossom. You can let it kill you, or you can let it make you stronger. The choice is yours.

Tammy, I love that you used seeds for your illo. It's such an easy concept and is so effective!!

This is something I've found to be so true! Rejection happens to everyone but its what you do with it that matters most. nice work...

Your advice about using rejections are very wise, I think. I'll try to use it next time - but it's mostly more difficult in the situation.. Nice drawing too.

VERY cool!
