Bloom where you are planted.
Maybe you didn’t get that job you wanted. Maybe you’re in a job you don’t love. Maybe you didn’t get that promotion you thought you deserved. Or maybe you’ve landed in a city you’re not sure you want to be in. My advice would be set your ego aside, and LEARN from the experience. This doesn’t mean you have to stop working to better the situation–whether that means applying for other jobs, asking for feedback from supervisors about what you can do to improve, or just being grateful for the little things around you that make you happy. The hardships and tough times offer the most teachable moments. But you have to be open to receiving them, so bloom where you are planted. Make the most of the situation, LEARN from it, GROW from it, and you will THRIVE.
