On Rejection

in All Posts

Good afternoon!  Tracy and Dustin from The Perfect Pair had a fried rice recipe on their blog, and it made me super excited to make my own vegetarian version.


My fried rice contained:


  • Tofu (Nasoya extra firm, pre-cubed; cooked in wok for about 5 minutes first)
  • Brown Rice (also precooked)
  • Asparagus
  • Mushrooms
  • Sweet corn
  • Teriyaki sauce



I fried everything in our huge wok (which we got at Marshalls and was totally worth the $12!).  The result was a restaurant-worthy meal!


There are a lot of leftovers, so expect to see this meal again! :)  I know the Husband is going to be really excited when he comes home for lunch, too.


On Rejection


Today, I am thinking a lot about rejection.


Rejection sounds like a bad thing, doesn’t it?  It sounds like we’re not wanted, needed, or desired when we are rejected.  But, I’ve discovered that getting rejected is only bad at first… it can end up being quite good!


  • In 8th grade, I was not admitted to a special high school and thought it was the most terrible thing EVER.  The high school I ended up attending was awesome, and I received an amazing education.
  • In college, my boyfriend dumped me so he could date over people.  I was really, really upset, and I actually hyperventilated after he broke up with me! :(  But, one month later, I met the Husband, who is my true love and soul mate.  If I hadn’t been dumped, who knows what would’ve happened?
  • And when I was shopping around my book proposal, I was rejected by THIRTEEN publishers before two publishers agreed to talk with me further and make offers.


Yes… the Operation Beautiful book received a lot of rejections!  It was hard to get rejected.  Some publishers just said “No,” and others wrote out really nice rejection emails for me, encouraging my agent and I to take the book to someone else who might be a better fit.


After one month of rejection, my spirit started to get really low.  But I told myself, “All you need is one yes.”  And I believed that and held onto that hope!  And then I started to say stuff like, “Even if no one buys my book, this was a great experience regardless.”  And you know what? I believed that, too. But… then I got the call!  🙂


I truly, truly believe that everything happens for a reason.  When a door closes, I try not to wonder what could’ve been behind it… I start looking for a window! :)  I have faith that things will work out the way they are suppose to.  In similar vein, I once wrote about getting over the fear of hearing “No.”  Check out “Afraid to Ask.”


What rejection have you received that turned out to be a GOOD thing?



  • Runeatrepeat December 14, 2009, 12:35 pm

    I don’t have a rejection that turned out to be a good thing – yet. But, this post made me look at the things I’ve missed out on with a positive outlook 🙂 Love it!

  • Jessica @ How Sweet It Is December 14, 2009, 12:36 pm

    I am really bummed out today about my current job situation + some other things. This really made me feel better. Thank you!

  • Carolyn December 14, 2009, 12:37 pm

    That fried rice looks delicious!! This post reminds me of that Garth Brooks song, “Unanswered Prayers.”

    • Kelly December 14, 2009, 1:04 pm

      I love love love that song!

  • Susan December 14, 2009, 12:38 pm

    In psych we learned that “acceptance” is one of the four basic human needs, so rejection is a naturally icky feeling. It’s great that you eventually turned that into a positive though. I believe that a rejection in one area leads to acceptance in another area!

  • Laura@FindingAHealthyBalance...after a 100+ POUND weight loss! December 14, 2009, 12:38 pm

    I TOTALLY agree with you on “everything happens for a reason”!!!

    In my life I have learned a lot from my rejections and bad that has happened….which made me a stronger person and also appreciate life more as well!

    For instance, I went through a very hard & horrible time of my life to get to where I am today and I couldn’t be happier….not that bad things or rejection does not still occur but I am happier inside from what my past has taught me and I do not let it affect me as much and I can move on so much easier now! =)

  • Evan Thomas December 14, 2009, 12:38 pm

    A company told me they would be more willing to send me products to review if my pictures weren’t so shabby. After that, I started using my real camera instead of my camera phone, and they were so right. It’s made my blog much mroe enjoyable for myself to look at. I’ve still never tried their products but honestly I don’t care anymore because what they taught me was good enough 🙂

  • Teacherwoman December 14, 2009, 12:42 pm

    A big life rejection of mine was being let go from a school district after doing a 1-year long term position. I had it set in my mind that i was going to be returning the next year. However, they found someone highly qualified and in the process, my director got me into the resident teaching program to complete my masters in special education! One door closes and another one opens! I believe this with all my heart!

  • Katie December 14, 2009, 12:42 pm

    The stir fry looks really good.. is it lunch yet? Rejection from my top grad school choice caused me a lot of tears but my boyfriend ended up in Colorado too and now I love being here! I still get upset really easily when things aren’t going quite the way I’d hoped but that list is a good reminder it usually works out just fine.

  • Katherine December 14, 2009, 12:42 pm

    I love this post! About 4 years ago, my college boyfriend broke up with me after about 2 years of dating. I completely freaked out and for about a year and a half, I truly was not myself. I changed so much for him.
    Now, I am the happiest I have ever been, and never would have started dating my current boyfriend if it wasn’t for that break up. I am grateful for that rejection every single day.

  • Emily December 14, 2009, 12:44 pm

    This is such a great post!! And that fried rice looks mighty delicious!

  • Marissa December 14, 2009, 12:44 pm

    Yummy stir fry! I got laid off in July and now I am in school for something I know I will truly love 🙂

  • Vanessa (Last Night's Leftovers) December 14, 2009, 12:45 pm

    “All you need is one yes” <– Love it!

  • Rosey Rebecca December 14, 2009, 12:46 pm

    This post is inspirational! 🙂 You have such a great attitude!!

  • Ashley December 14, 2009, 12:47 pm

    I had a very similar experience in terms of having my heart broken only to meet my fiance a week later! I was in a long-distance love affair for close to a year and when my Euro-BF came to visit I laid my cards out on the table. I told him that I was in love with him and that I wanted to figure out how to make it work. I had been talking to my company about ways I could transfer to Europe and had been looking into visas as well.

    He told me no.

    He didn’t want to go down that route and said that he was flattered and cared for me a lot, it just wasn’t going to work. I was absolutely heartbroken and cried all the way home from the airport and for days later. About a week later I was out with my best friend, and I totally randomly met my fiance, on the street. It was absolutely meant to be and I couldn’t be happier.

    Rejection is tough, but often leads to greener pastures. We just need to pick ourselves back up and look ahead to the next challenge.

    So happy that you persevered with the Operation Beautiful book 🙂

  • Dotsie December 14, 2009, 12:48 pm

    I was rejected from a Masters of Public Health program-thank goodness, because the last place I needed to be was in a community health program, out in the field–which is admirable, but not what I want. As soon as I got the rejection notice, I called up another university for a Master of Health Care Administration program, and lined up an interview for later that week! Long story short, I am now in the health care administration program, and LOVE it!

  • Brittney December 14, 2009, 12:49 pm

    I’m feeling a little bit hopeless right now, which isn’t really related to rejection, just stuff going on in my life right now. This made me a feel a little bit better and a little bit hopeful that everything will work out eventually for me.

  • Lu December 14, 2009, 12:49 pm

    You totally inspire me. I get through a lot of yoga classes by repeating your saying “pain is temporary, quitting is forever” in my head. This post on rejection is great. I have been feeling down lately, and this makes me look at things a little differently. Thanks for all that you do.

  • Sarah @ See Sarah Eat December 14, 2009, 12:49 pm

    Not getting a few jobs I applied for turned out to be a blessing! While I am still considering other career fields, I’m glad I ended up in the job I have right now.

    I also got dumped, my junior year of high school and if that hadn’t happened I might not be with my husband either! 🙂

  • Kristie Lynn December 14, 2009, 12:52 pm

    I was really down on myself in high school with boy rejections (oh, high school). But in my first 2 months of college I found a the hubby, who liked me for who I was which is more than any of those other guys would have (again, it was high school)! I think I’ll save this post though – it’s a good reminder that rejection isn’t an end all thing. 🙂

  • Karla December 14, 2009, 12:58 pm

    I think my problem is that I don’t put myself out there very much. If I think I’m going to get rejected then I generally don’t do it.

    I appreciate your positive attitude. This sort of motivates me to take a few more risks.

  • Tracy December 14, 2009, 12:58 pm

    First, thanks for the shout-out! You are awesome!! I really want to try to make some rice with tofu now…I don’t exactly know what to do with tofu, but I’ve always wanted to try!

    Also, I wholeheartedly agree that rejection is always an opportunity in disguise. I used to be such a competitive high achiever when I was in high school and treated rejection like it was the end of the world! Now I embrace it because, in retrospect, rejection has always led me to something better. AND I am a lot less stressed when I let life just flow! 🙂

  • Estela @ Weekly Bite December 14, 2009, 1:01 pm

    Oh boy, this post hit home.

    I have had lots of rejections in my life… but I’m so happy… because al those rejections has made me the person I am today.

  • Melissa December 14, 2009, 1:05 pm

    The stir fry looks so much like something my husband has made/would make. YUM!!! Although I love tofu in restaurants, I have never bought it and tried cooking it myself, because I was too afraid of how to do it. But this looks very easy and very awesome. Thanks for the idea!
    As for rejections, like you, every time I broke up with a boyfriend (even if it was because I initiated it) I felt like the world was literally going to end and I became so depressed…but then I would meet someone that was better anyway. Like you, after I broke up with my last boyfriend I met my husband a few months later and the rest is history. I think everything happens for a reason and every single thing, although it may seem horrible at the time, is always the right thing that will lead you to something better.

  • Meghan@traveleatlove December 14, 2009, 1:06 pm

    I received a rejection from a college that was really not me, but that I knew would make my dad happy. I would have been miserable there!
    Caitlin, thanks for sharing this post. I am going through some tough work times and it helps to know how much you persevered and that it didn’t come super easy, but here you are now with a BOOK about to publish!

  • Danielle December 14, 2009, 1:07 pm

    What a great post!

    I LOVE the veggie stir fry recipe and think that I may need to make a trip to Ross/HomeGoods soon for a wok. Yum!

    You are so right about rejection. I was engaged to a guy in college who I thought was wonderful, never mind that it was an emotionally abusive relationship. Eventually we broke up and I was completely heartbroken but after lots of prayer and growth on my end, I reconnected with a wonderful friend from high school who is my true companion and soul mate, and now my husband of just over two years 🙂

  • Megan December 14, 2009, 1:08 pm

    That fried rice looks yummy!

    I got rejected from the college I *thought* I really wanted to go to, but ended up at a school that was the absolutely perfect fit for me. 😀 I’m trying to keep this in mind as I wait to hear back from law schools!!

  • Ashley December 14, 2009, 1:09 pm

    I was rejected by what seems a million different guys before finding one that loves me for me!

    Those publishers are going to sorry they didn’t pick up the OB book first!

  • Nicole of Raspberry Stethoscope December 14, 2009, 1:13 pm

    There was this douche bag guy in high school who i thought was going to be the greatest love of my life (barf) and eventually, rejected me, but then months later, I had met the true love of my life and we’ve been together for 7 years now, yay!

  • christie, honoring health December 14, 2009, 1:14 pm

    Rejection feels like the story of my life some times but it is really important to look at how those things turned out to be positives. For example, my last relationship before my husband was heart wrenching. He completely rejecting me and the love I offered to him. I thought I would never love again and that I would be a sad, lonely depressed soul forever. Turns out, the love of my life came shortly after I finally let that relationship go and I could not be happier. My husband treats me exactly the way I want to be treated and his love for me is deeper than I ever thought possible.

  • megan December 14, 2009, 1:17 pm

    Great post! Rejection is so hard. But I believe that God works things out for best, and all hard situations can help you learn and draw closer to Him. It’s easier to look at rejection in that light. There’s a greater purpose 🙂

  • Diana @ frontyardfoodie December 14, 2009, 1:21 pm

    I think that all rejections end up being good in the end just simply because of how they change you. I’ve been rejected a few times in life and they’ve all made me who I am.

    Thanks for reminding us that anything can be positive!

  • Stephanie December 14, 2009, 1:31 pm

    Life is a constant journey and we may not always know where it is we are going

    or indeed where it is we truly want to go…

    But, be present and listen to the heart; follow true dreams and be ready for anything.

    Sometimes even when we feel we are going the wrong way

    we end up in places we never dreamed or believed possible!!

    Because, when we hold onto our true self;

    we will never truly lose our way.

  • Jolene (www.everydayfoodie.ca) December 14, 2009, 1:47 pm

    Last year I didn’t get a position at my school – a maternity leave that I really wanted. I was SO upset. This year I ended up getting a permanent position instead somewhere even better!!!!! That mat. leave would only have been temporary, so now I am glad I didn’t get it! Amazing how things work out!

  • Julie @savvyeats December 14, 2009, 1:47 pm

    I loved my summer internship for the people and the opportunities it gave me, and really hoped it would turn into a full-time offer. Typically, this company gives full-time offers to 90% of their interns but because of the economy, that didn’t happen this year.

    I was crushed because my performance reviews had been really positive and I had worked my butt off all summer!

    Now, I realize that it is a good thing I got rejected by the company. I would have been working on highly-processed food, and I think in the long-run I wouldn’t have been happy with myself if I was making and selling foods that I wouldn’t eat myself.

    I have since realized that the career path I’ve been envisioning for myself is not the best fit for me. I don’t think I would have figured this out so early on had I not been rejected!

  • Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg December 14, 2009, 1:48 pm

    Ugh…as a creative writer, I face rejection ALL THE TIME. It can get depressing, but it’s also great inspiration and motivation to keep working harder on my writing– I wouldn’t want a poem or story to be published that isn’t ready yet, and the rejections are just reminders that something might not be quite there yet.

    Thanks for this post. Also– that stir fry looks like it could be from a restaurant! Nice lunch!

  • Kara M. December 14, 2009, 2:23 pm

    I don’t necessarily have rejection stories, but have had plenty of circumstances that did not go as I planned/hoped. I totally agree that everything happens for a reason. Sometimes (or a lot of the time!) it can be really scary to put yourself out there, and even though things may not turn out as you hoped, more often than not, you end up gaining something better for you in the long run!

  • Caroline December 14, 2009, 2:29 pm

    I like your positive outlook on rejection, its inspiring and helpful seeing as I really hate rejection but I also believe everything happens for a reason!

  • lisa December 14, 2009, 2:31 pm

    This is a great post. Like you illustrated, often times what we think is a really bad situation ends up being just what we needed. It can open other doors and allow us to look in new places for what we want and, rejection can lead to great endings! We just have to trust (and hope) that the best will come.

  • Mackenzie @ The College Authentic December 14, 2009, 2:31 pm

    I got rejected from my absolute dream college last year, and like other people said the school I ended up at was a much better match, cheaper (i get PAID to go here! which is a lot more peachy keen than having a $50k/ year tuition!)
    Funny thing is, I may get the chance to go there this summer to study language immersion, without the huge tuition! To that I say, Booyah, pretentious, expensive, private school education! Suck it! 😀

  • Vicki December 14, 2009, 2:34 pm

    I had something similar happen with a former fiance…except he didn’t dump me because he is just one of those guys who rejects you by torturing you into dumping them. We had been together off an on for years but I finally knew it was the end and about a month later I met my husband. All I feel now when I hear/think about the ex is thankfulness that I dodged that bullet. My life would have been totally different and definitely not in a good way.

  • Tammy December 14, 2009, 2:48 pm

    I am glad you posted this today…I really needed to hear it. Somtimes the most important thing about rejection is the way you handle it..I think I have used rejection as an excuse not to live…not to love…and not to risk. The end result of choosing to live that way is usually worse than the rejection itself. Yep…rejection hurts like hell…but sometimes what is “good” is the enemy of what is “best”…and I am determined not to “settle” anymore!

  • ashley December 14, 2009, 2:51 pm

    thank you so much for this post! really helps to be reminded that everything happens for a reason

  • Ashley December 14, 2009, 2:57 pm

    Everything Happens For A Reason is how I get through every day. It’s a great mantra to repeat to yourself over and over. =)
    Loved this post!

  • Lauren December 14, 2009, 3:02 pm

    This post is very fitting for me! I just found out that I didn’t get the job as a spinning instructor at the gym at my university…I cried. I was really upset, but I realize it doesn’t mean I wasn’t a good candidate, it just means there was someone else with more experience. I guess it’s kind of good I didn’t get the job- I feel like it would have added a lot more pressure. I’m already in a pre-med program- I don’t need more stress! Thanks for this post! 🙂

  • Lauren December 14, 2009, 3:03 pm

    Oh, and I totally agree with the comment above mine- everything DOES happen for a reason…that is the first thing my Mom said to me when I told her. 🙂

  • Foy @ Foy Update December 14, 2009, 3:11 pm

    I didn’t get into the grad school I wanted, so I did Peace Corps. Peace Corps helped me learn so much: another language, how to live in a differnt culture and how to function in situations where I didn’t have control. I’m am a more patient relaxed person as a result. I met friends I will keep for life and I helped my rural Panamanian community. If I had gone into that graduate program I would be even more competitive and stressed.

    Whenever people tell me, “I wish I had the guts to do Peace Corps” I think you do, “You do have the guts you just don’t know it”.

  • Bronwyn December 14, 2009, 3:24 pm

    Last year I got rejected when I first applied for the Dietetics Program here at UBC. I was really close though, since I went back to find out what I did wrong.

    I don’t know if it’s been a good thing. It’s actually left me sort of aimless right now. I do plan on applying again… but the truth is, I’m totally questioning everything I planned on doing with my life.

  • Anne @thefitbridesmaid December 14, 2009, 3:53 pm

    I am a true believer in “Everything happens for a reason.”

    My freshman year of college, I didn’t make the flag corps for the marching band. I turned right around and tried out for the musical organizations and did five years with the bell choir, which also lead to a part in the musical and multiple peformances in the Christmas show. Since performing on stage is a true passion of mine I believe that my first “rejection” was a good thing!

  • Ellen December 14, 2009, 3:54 pm

    I totally believe that rejection can be a good thing. I felt really rejected when I got fired from my job, and of course, took it very personally–especially because I was getting good feedback and busting my butt. Later I realized that it wasn’t that I didn’t do a good work, but that it just wasn’t the right job wasn’t right for me. (Tabloid reporting is probably only a good fit for 10% of the population anyway!) Although I’m struggling financially, I have done some pretty cool freelance gigs I wouldn’t have gotten if I hadn’t lost my job. Things aren’t perfect by any means, but somehow, I’m happier than I’ve been in a long time!


  • Kelly December 14, 2009, 4:13 pm

    WOW! Now that is definitely something to reflect upon. If more people stopped and looked at what came from “rejections” it might make everything seem a little less gloomy! What a fantastic message!!

  • Julie December 14, 2009, 4:17 pm

    My ex breaking up with me was pretty bad, but if it hadn’t happened I would still be in a stifling relationship. I can breathe now. I found myself, and figured out who I really am and what I truly like/dislike. I’ve been working on myself for 2 years and I really kind of like me 😉
    I still have yet to find anyone else though…Oh WELL!

  • Paula December 14, 2009, 4:28 pm

    oh yes, rejection is hard, at first. Later we realize the alternate path it led us down. Such good words today, thank you! 🙂

  • Lisa (bakebikeblog) December 14, 2009, 4:29 pm

  • Wendy December 14, 2009, 5:46 pm

    I got fired from my first job post-grad school. It came as a shock and was a very humbling experience, but it was ok, b/c I was planning to quit in ~3 months anyway. My ex-boss just saved me from a few extra months of misery. That was almost 6 years ago, and I’m really happy with my life now! I hate to think about how miserable I’d be if I’d stayed at that horrible job!

  • susan December 14, 2009, 5:51 pm

    i wanted to go to law school in NC. when i got rejected it meant i had to stay in OR for law school. i was so deflated.

    it turned out to be exactly where i was supposed to be!
    i lived with my brother, sister in law, and 1 yr old niece my first year of law school. i honestly believe she got me through that first year. i would be SO stressed out studying, and then she would come in my room and climb on me and draw in my book… i’d put the book down and spend the rest of the evening with her. she kept me balanced and grounded…
    now she’s 9, and still my best friend in the whole world!

  • Emily Eats and Exercises December 14, 2009, 6:03 pm

    Caitlin, did you leave out the egg on purpose? I think that cracking an egg over veggie fried rice is the key. (You can also use egg whites if you’d prefer.)

    On rejection: As a professional musician I certainly have my fair share. Applying for an orchestra job for example there might be 200+ people for one spot. The main lesson I’ve learned is to keep practicing and keep trying. Some auditions work out and some don’t.

    • Caitlin December 14, 2009, 6:13 pm

      yes i did leave it out – i had two eggs for breakfast and felt like three eggs in one day was pushing it in terms of cholestrol! 🙂

  • Laura Georgina December 14, 2009, 6:55 pm

    I agree with you on rejection and I’m a firm believer that everything happens for the best. I was devastated when I did not get into my top choice of PhD program a few years back and gave myself a year to weigh my other program options. In the end, I decided not to go through with the PhD and every day I’m relieved that the rejection made me question how much I truly wanted what I thought I wanted!

  • Lauren @ Reading and Running December 14, 2009, 6:59 pm

    I’ve been craving Chinese food lately and this just made it worse.

    I am definitely not a fan of being rejected but this past year has been full of post-college rejection and disappointment. I always have to remind myself that rejection is God’s way of protecting me from something. That is really the only way I can think about it!

  • Kim December 14, 2009, 7:17 pm

    I think it’s fair to say that had I not been laid off from my day-job, I never would have gotten around to writing the recipe blog that I’ve been thinking about for over a year now. Nor would I be interviewing with local chefs or enrolling in culinary school…

    So, I absolutely believe that when one door closes, another one opens.

  • Bridget December 14, 2009, 8:31 pm

    I’m proud of you for keeping your sights focused on the book. The message is a great message, and the fact that you stuck through the grueling process of finding a publisher to relay it to so many people is priceless. Sometimes, rewriting things makes them even more powerful. Good luck!

    The program that I am with now in Japan originally rejected me. The application is a difficult, yearlong process, so I was devastated. That was when I moved to Orlando. In that year, I reapplied to the program, got reacquainted with some family that I didn’t know well, and was accepted around the time that my fiance was coming to Japan for a several month long engineering assignment. The rejection brought an infinite amount of good into my life.

    Sometimes, we don’t want to wait for the new door to open…but when it does, it’s definitely worth the wait.

People who don’t want to buy training, people who want to but can’t afford it, and people who are just mean and don’t even want the FREE assessment and workout you offer them. Oh, and the people who schedule the appointments and then don’t show. I was stood up tonight even. lol

    Tonight I even had a lady yell at me because I had the wrong number. I’m getting used to it. 🙂

    I recently got rejected for a TV job that I interviewed for. I’m SO glad I didn’t end up getting it because I’ve since completely changed career paths. I can’t imagine how unhappy I’d have been stuck in that job, instead I’m totally psyched to be studying for my personal trainer certification right now 🙂

    Thanks so much for sharing your stories! I’m often afraid to admit failures and rejection, and I think many of my friends are, too. We don’t want to admit that we simply did not succeed in some goal or other. But like you (and alot of other people) say…it’s just an inevitable part of life, and so necessary for growth and future success. 🙂

    my ex who cheated on me was the BEST THING EVER. At the time? Not so much. But now I’m the one who has direction in life and with a man who is ever so supportive!

    I was rejected from my top choice college because I was homeschooled and they didn’t think I was ready since I was graduating a year early. I went to my second choice and met awesome friends, got a great education and found my ultimate calling into ministry. Couldn’t have worked out better.
