(This pretty turquoise bottle was a gift from a dear blog friend, Bookie. She writes the blog Claudia's Page.)
Twelve-step programs often state that "acceptance is the answer to all my life's problems."
Well, some things would be very difficult to accept but, generally speaking, it's a good thing to be able to do it.
That way, we are not fighting what is happening or worrying a great deal about situations over which we have no control.
With acceptance also comes patience as we wait for things to get better or prepare to take action to change.
It seems that the older one gets, the easier it is to embrace acceptance.
HOW ARE YOU WITH ACCEPTANCE?
