Sometimes we feel that if we accept things as they are, we are opening the window to complacency or defeat.
And in the fear of not falling back into our old ways of being, we resist acceptance.
Acceptance has nothing to do with rolling over and relinquishing our possibilities to an unchanged complacent life.
Acceptance is about awareness and letting go to embrace something better.
When things are not where you want them to be it is important to be aware.
Are you aware of how you feel?
Are you aware of the actions and circumstances that led to where you are today?
Are you aware of the interrelated parts that impact you (ex: the relationships you have in your life)?
