]Welcome back to another episode of The Zen(ish) Mommy Podcast! November is Adoption Month, and we have a very special guest joining us today, JT Harding. JT is a songwriter who has had an incredible rollercoaster of a life; from being adopted at birth, to traveling the US trying to get his music career off the ground and experiencing incredible loss. In this inspirational discussion, you’ll hear all about how JT’s adoption impacted his life, career, and success.
During our conversation, JT dives into what it takes to handle rejection in the music industry. He shares how many songs he has written versus how many are hits and what the ratio looks like. Rejection doesn’t come easy to anyone, but JT has some stellar advice to get through that. He has managed to compartmentalize rejection and not equate it to self-worth. But that’s not all, he has never given up. He has stayed the course and continues to do so. You won’t want to miss the advice he offers for anyone going through rejection.
“Rejection never gets easier you just have to feel it and go with it.”
JT shares with us how his life was impacted after meeting his biological parents. Furthermore, commenting on his thoughts when it comes to nature vs nurture. Acknowledging that adoption stories can either be amazing or not so great.
“My biological parents loves me so much they knew they had to give me away and they knew they couldn’t take care of me.”
