It does not mean resignation.

                               denying your feelings.

                               being passive aggressive.

                                not caring.

It does not mean giving up or running away.

                                being a doormat.

                                that it doesn’t upset you.

                                that you have to like it.


Acceptance does not mean that you want things to stay just as they are.


It means realizing that you can’t control everything.

                 seeing….really seeing what’s going on.

                 owning your role in all of it.

                 experiencing the beauty and the mess.


It means leaning in and looking closer.

                opening your eyes, your mind, your heart.

                being right here, right now.

                 laying down your resistance.


Acceptance means being willing to notice what it feels like to be where you are, in your own skin and circumstance.

Breathe in. Breathe out. Notice your presence. Notice your experience.
