Acceptance

Acceptance means that you
can find the serenity within
to let go of the past
with its mistakes and regrets,
and move into the future
with a new perspective,
appreciating the opportunity
to take a second chance.
Acceptance means you'll find
security again
when difficult times come
into your life,
and comfort to relieve any pain.
You'll find new dreams, fresh hopes,
and forgiveness of the heart.

Acceptance does not mean
that you will always be perfect.
It simply means that
you'll always overcome imperfection.

Acceptance is the road to peace -
letting go of the worst,
holding on to the best,
and finding the hope inside
that continues throughout life.

Acceptance
is the heart's best defense,
love's greatest asset,
and the easiest way
to keep on believing
in yourself and others.

Thanks JFT. That's good stuff. I found this as well:

Power of acceptance
+++++++++++++++++++

When the world seems to be falling down around you, you can choose to fall down with it or you can choose a more positive path. Acceptance will put you on that positive path.

Fighting against negativity only produces more negativity.
Yet when you accept what is, no matter how terrible and difficult it may be, you put yourself in a position to start changing it for the better.

Acceptance does not mean giving in or giving up. It means moving on, as in moving on ahead.

There is simply no point in fighting battles which have already been lost, nor is there any point in allowing the loss to continue to slow you down. The smart strategy is to accept it and then put all your energy toward a positive pursuit.

Acceptance does not mean allowing others to take advantage of you. It simply means that you look realistically at what has happened and allow yourself to see the positive opportunities that are most certainly there.

Once you accept what is, you are free to move positively forward. Once you quit fighting, you are free to start achieving.
