I had a disappointment today. I blew an opportunity to do well at something that was super important to me. I was struggling to find a way to fix it…to make it right. So I thought: What would I tell another sister to do in this situation? I came up with the answer that worked for me, and I moved on.

I thought you might relate. Maybe you think you blew it with a new guy or you think your time for love has passed. Maybe you are in a relationship that isn’t working out and you’re staying because you think it’s your last opportunity.

My hope is that my process — what I learned and applied in this situation — helps you get past your disappointments when you need to. This is a part of life, and it’s all about how you work through it. Giving up on our important dreams is not an option.

PS: I got pictures this week from two women who received their engagement rings this weekend. Both are around 50 and have never (yet) been married. Both had major disappointments that proceeded their engagements to these terrific men. Like me, they are perfect examples of why we should never give up on our important dreams.
