Day 69 – Ding!

I’ve had a few “eureka” moments today (complete with virtual light bulb flashing above my head) but instead of blah-blah-blah-ing about them here, I’ve chosen to share a few quotes of what others have said about ACCEPTANCE.  I think we spend way too much time analysing and criticising and not enough time embracing who we are.

“Understanding is the first step to acceptance, and only with acceptance can there be recovery.”

– Joanne Kathleen Rowling

“For after all, the best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain.”

– Henry Wadworth Longfellow

“One must not attempt to justify them, but rather to sense their nature simply and clearly.

– Albert Einstein

“The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.”

– Dolly Parton

P.S.  You know what’s also beautiful?  Sitting on a fleece slip-covered couch drinking red wine and chatting with a good friend.  You should try it sometime.  I highly recommend it.  Very therapeutic.

  1. Yes. But I must say that the “understanding” part can be quite challenging. I still think the adaptation of the “Prayer of Serenity” says it all. “God give us the strength to accept the things we cannot change, courage to change the things we can and wisdom to know the difference”.
