NATIONAL SORRY CHARLIE DAY
National Sorry Charlie Day is observed each year on April 6. This day encourages us to think about the times we have been rejected. Whether we’ve been rejected by a sweetheart or by a college, a prospective employer or by the bank for a loan, we’ve all been refused. National Sorry Charlie Day also gives us an opportunity to reflect on how we survived the rejection and what we learned from it.
Do you remember Charlie the Tuna? He was often rejected but would keep going with a smile. “Sorry, Charlie” became closely associated with StarKist and was also a successful American catchphrase. Charlie never let rejection stop him. Do not let it stop you!
