Accepting What IS
Recently, Kris our Director of The Wellness Center, said that she is “accepting what IS” in her life right now. I really appreciated this sentiment.
This is a powerful mantra for life, Accepting What IS. Sometimes in life, we may want something TODAY, but in reality the timing isn’t right, or we just can’t afford it yet.
This reminds me when I was in my 30s and was ready to settle down and get married, but for one reason or another the men I was dating just were not the right ones for me. Finally, when I turned 36 I had to come to terms with “accepting what IS” and for me it was the possibility that I could be single well into my 40s. I had to be OK with that. This letting go was one of the best things for me personally. It took the pressure off and allowed me to totally accept who I was and where I was in life. I also embraced the mantra that I would rather be happy and single, than unhappily married to the wrong person.
Accepting What IS, this mantra has guided me in many other areas of my life. Currently, I am being attacked by a former massage therapist. She has falsely accused me of forging her signature and breaking the law. Of which I have done neither. I have put up a good fight defending my position, but there is a certain point where I have had to be ok with the final decision that a Judge will make.
This year, we wanted to make some improvements to our home, but the reality is that it may not be in the cards, since I am paying a hefty sum in legal fees and depending upon how the judge rules in the case that has been brought against The Wellness Center by this former therapist, there could be expensive changes that need to be implemented. Accepting What IS, which being more fiscally conservative is the best thing to do.
What in your life do you need to, Accept What IS? I know accepting reality is hard for our human brains, but it is so liberating to Accept What IS, rather than feel bad about what you don’t or can’t have. Instead, Accept What IS and be grateful for all that you have today. Because life is a spectrum, there is always someone with more than us, and there is always someone with less than us. Being grateful for ALL THAT IS.
Happy New Year!
