Sounds easy, right?
You sit and let things wash in, over, through you.
So it would seem.
But acceptance doesn’t work that way.
It’s a commitment to be with things you’d rather not see, and certainly don’t want to have stay.
Acceptance of a circumstance…a goal you didn’t meet, a dream that didn’t come to pass (and never may)…well, it doesn’t just fall into place.
And if it does, it isn’t likely to be real.
But just because it’s tough, that doesn’t mean you back away.
Acceptance is meeting life the way it is.
It’s the first and often hardest step about change.
And until you accept what you need to accept, no matter how much you want it it change, or go, it’s surely going to stay.
