Beginning to Accept

I am beginning to accept that I am different to the people around me.

I am beginning to accept who I am and that I am allowed to have a voice and an opinion.

I am beginning to understand that I do not have to agree to everyone else’s viewpoint.

I am beginning to accept that there will be good days and bad day and days in between.

I am beginning to accept that a state of permanent happiness is a fruitless quest.

I am beginning to accept anxiety for what it is without the need to analyze why it is.

I am beginning to accept the endless questions without the need for immediate answers.

I am beginning to accept that the expectation of permanent happiness leads to disappointment.

I am beginning to understand that my mood is not a permanent thing

I am beginning to understand that I am in perpetual motion. Constantly changing, constantly growing, constantly learning.

I am beginning to accept my shadow side, the part of me I have wanted to hide for so long.

I am beginning to accept that maybe I am just here to experience and learn.

I am beginning to understand that sometimes things just happens for no reason.

I am beginning to understand that I am the one looking for reasons when things happen.

I am beginning to enjoy the things I took for granted. Taking a deep breath and feeling it. Beginning to enjoy walking in the rain and feeling the rain drops on my face, the beauty of a flower or a tree, the sound of a flowing river or the sound of waves crashing on a beach.

I am beginning to enjoy being loving towards myself.

I am beginning to  understand that the end is just a new beginning.

I am beginning to understand that it’s the journey that’s important.

I am beginning….

to accept….

      Thank you Viv. As I mentioned to you, this came from my journal and your comment confirms that posting it was the right thing for me to do.

    I agree with Viv above.. I might just make a poster of this. It is truthfully beautiful.

    I have printed it on the special parchment paper I showed you last weekend and now am going to put it on a wall.

      Thank you Vanessa,

      Maybe it’s time for me to realise that “This life is here for all of us” and perhaps this post was a way for me to remember this…

      HUGS
