Category accepting life
As the years have gone (or flown) by I’ve learned a few lessons. The main one is I’m not the one in charge. It is only when I release that I am able to embrace life.
And new doesn’t always look perfect.
What does that mean exactly? After much thought this is the conclusion I’ve come to- Acceptance is the willingness to embrace what is.
We are programmed to think negatively. Unfortunately we anticipate tragedy. We are hard wired to shift in that direction. So it does take an effort to be a strong and resilient person. I think the effort is worth it.
I have an idea. Just as an experiment, take three days and practice acceptance. I mean accepting something about another person that you’d prefer were different. When you are faced with that something you do not like follow immediately with a deliberate thought of something you like about the person. It may be something small, even insignificant or it may be something truly important. Pet peeves are a good place to start.
