    When I was entering shows and competitions and getting rejections notices, I put them in a legal size folder in my files cabinet. As soon as I received my first acceptance, I would plan a little release ceremony and burn one or two of the rejections in the back yard. After a time, the rejection file was empty most of the time. The ceremony was to remind me that rejection notices were based on one or two people's opinion and to be grateful for the acceptances.

    So true! Gratitude is an important part of the process. I like to use the ceremonial burning of anything negative that comes into my life -- it feels so free to watch the bad stuff float away on breeze.
