Accumulate and Appreciate Acceptance

We accumulate acceptance along with wisdom and experience as we grow older. We learn to accept each birthday as it comes with delight and gratitude. There are two ways to look at acceptance: giving and receiving. Giving is accepting yourself and others as they are in the moment and receiving is accepting a compliment, criticism, belief , opinion or consequence and making a decision to deal with it as best you can. When there is a surprising development in our lives be it an unfortunate disaster or joyous opportunity, we must accept that it has happened and then ask for and accept any love, help and support that we need to deal with it.

Acceptance is seeing that there is an opportunity in every disaster and making the most of this opportunity. Acceptance begins when tumult and fighting end and there is room to grow for calm and surrender. Surrender must never be regarded as defeat. It is accepting that the battle is not worth the time, energy and money and that the other side may be more powerful or less interesting.

Acceptance show you the payoff you are getting from a particular struggle and then encourages you to let it go. Acceptance gives you space to explore and experience life to its fullest. Acceptance must never be equated with failure or giving in or giving up. Rather it is having the strength to say that I’ve done what I can and it’s time to move on. Acceptance is choosing your battles wisely and knowing when to walk away with grace and gratitude. It is rejoicing in all that you are.

Acceptance requires the presence of courage and clarity and the absence of fear and confusion. Acceptance is bliss. It is the power and freedom to choose your commitments. Acceptance allows you to leave the world of denial behind you once and for all. It allows you to open the door to a world of amazing possibilities that most certainly await you and that you are ready to accept.
