Look at everything in your life – past, present and unknown future. And ACCEPT IT. ✔️
Look at the people who’ve come and gone in your life. And ACCEPT IT. ✔️
Look at world affairs. And ACCEPT IT. ✔️
Look at your problems and worries. And ACCEPT IT. ✔️
Look at your pains, insecurities and anxieties. And ACCEPT IT. ✔️
Hands down, it is what it is. Right now, in this present moment. Just ACCEPT.✔️
‘BUT, WE CAN’T SIT ON OUR ARSES AND JUST ACCEPT EVERYTHING!’ 😠
‘BUT, SOME PEOPLE HAVE DONE REALLY BAD THINGS TO ME, I CAN’T ACCEPT THAT!’ 😠
I hear you cry.
Well. I didn’t say don’t take action and I didn’t say condone bad things. Acceptance doesn’t mean either of those things.
Acceptance simply means you receive something.
When you receive something, you now hold it in your hands.
Once it’s in your hands, you now have some control over it.
OK sure, we can’t control world politics or other people’s behaviours but, we can control our response to them once we receive them in our hands. Once we hold it, we can choose what to do with it.
But if you haven’t accepted, you don’t hold that thing. It’s not yours to do anything with. It is out of your control. You can continue pushing it away, fighting it, moaning about it, worrying about it – but it will remain at arms-length. And so, you can’t do anything about it, because it’s not in your hands. If anything diminishes your confidence and resilience in life, it is this. Lack of acceptance saps your true power.
Acceptance lets you step into your power. 💪 Once you accept whatever life is delivering to you, once you hold it with 100% ownership, from this space you can decide – what can I do with this? Can I change it? If so, how? If I can’t change it, can I let it be, let it go? 😌
SURE, IT’S NOT EASY
I have some issues right now that I’m struggling to accept. Third parties are causing me problems. 😭 But, I have wasted time and energy fighting it, complaining, instead of accepting and realising that I actually can’t do anything about these things. So, I’m better off receiving it and then letting it go. And getting on with the things in my life that I can influence. ✔️
What’s going on for you right now that you can work on accepting?
