06 May How To Deal When Sh*t Happens
Are you facing a big challenge, dealing with heartache, or perhaps hardship?
Many of you who participated in our online survey are dealing with some pretty big challenges right and if you are not, chances are, you have in the past.
We’re talking about the really big stuff here. Like the devastation felt over divorce or breakups, massive financial losses, job losses, or the loss of someone we love.
I want you to know you are not alone — I’ve been there myself, and in the process, uncovered some truths that will get through.
In today’s particularly poignant Jacquie Straight Up, I share some of my own personal losses, and how I made it through the dark days…and I know you can, too.
The truth is, no one goes through life unscathed. But it’s how we deal with our challenges that makes all the difference.

I found this quote the other day, and I don’t know who wrote it but it’s brilliant:
“For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out, and everything changes. To someone who doesn’t understand growth, it would look like complete destruction.”
Here’s the truth of the matter: sometimes you have to be taken right down to the studs in order to rise again, stronger and better than before. It is through our hardships that we grow and learn. That’s the beauty of life.
And don’t forget, when one door closes, it is because another one is opening for you and leading you to a better place. This I know for sure. My whole life has been living proof of that. And when you read the stories of my life in my upcoming My Scandalous Little Rule Book, you will see exactly what I mean.
(And speaking of that, many of you know that My Scandalous Little Rule Book was supposed to hit the shelves last month, but I had to postpone the release because of a — yes indeed — a massive challenge in my personal life! I can’t talk about it yet but when I can, I will share the details with you because while it has been really rough, the lessons have been tremendous.)
Remember: Your challenges happen for you and not to you. Another door is going to open and it is going to be magnificent. Believe it. It is your belief that will be your reality.
