There are many times in our lives when what you need to do isn’t really what you want to do. Most of us suck it up and move forward with the need rather than the want; however, even though the “need” decision is made, it doesn’t mean it’s any easier if it isn’t what you “want”.
I was googling around and found this quote by an American author and poet. She’s makes a good point…
“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.” – Maya Angelou
Often, life is about acceptance. Acceptance of need vs want. Acceptance of loss vs gain. Acceptance of love vs hate. Acceptance is so much about releasing whatever it is that has a hold on you and allowing yourself to change your attitude. To quit fighting it. If you can do this, then you can release that negative energy into the universe. The end result is a release which enable you to move forward to create a happier existence.
So my goal today is acceptance of the inevitable. To let what is to be – be, and in the end, may happiness abound.
