“I feel acceptance is love…” – Daily Reflections
When I refuse to accept someone’s unacceptable behavior, I continue to feel unloved. When I fail to accept some medical condition, I continue to feel scared. When I fail to accept financial struggles, I often make things worse. But acceptance doesn’t mean I’m powerless, it’s quite the opposite. Acceptance empowers me to take action. First I accept the situation as a fact. Next I take action to effectuate change, provided it’s loving and kind for everyone. And finally, if action is not possible or in everyone’s best interest, I let go and give it to God, trusting that but doing so things will work out just fine. When I remember that acceptance empowers me with choices, I stop fighting reality and ILML!
