Acceptance…It frees the mind.

Who are you? text vertically along a photo of a woman standing on a beach looking skywards with the text journaling prompts for uncovering who you are below

Can you accept the way your life is right now at this moment?

 
Even though things aren’t the way you want them can you accept this moment?

Maybe things are super fucking shitty—can you accept them anyway?
 

Your ability to accept your life right now exactly as it is opens you up to create the life you want.

 
Because let’s be honest here if you aren’t at a place of acceptance then you certainly aren’t in a place of gratitude. And when it comes to Loving Your Life and Living Your Dreams then you better believe you MUST live in a state of gratitude.

If you’re not in a place of acceptance then you’re in a place of griping and complaining.

And, love, we live in an energetic universe.

If you’re constantly whining and moaning about how things are then you’re certainly not matching up with what you want.

Now, let’s be clear accepting this moment doesn’t mean being complacent and it’s not throwing your hands in the air crying “it’s hopeless, I can’t change things”.

That’s not acceptance.
 

Acceptance comes with the understanding that your current reality doesn’t dictate your future.

 
Your reality at this moment doesn’t mean you’re not on your way to something new, something different, something better.

Your reality doesn’t mean you’re a failure or you’re not good enough or not capable.
 

The way your life is right now means nothing except the meaning you give it.

 
Acceptance understands this.

When you’re in acceptance you’re at peace with what is. You can see beyond the shittiness to the silver lining.

And if you can’t see the silver lining quite yet, you have faith that it’s there and you’ll see it soon.

The more you fight against what is the more the what is sticks.

Being in acceptance stops the fight against what is, it frees your mind to see beyond the struggle. And this is a powerful thing.
 

When you stop fighting against what is when you accept what you’re experiencing you free your mind.

 
And a free mind is open to seeing…

Solutions and opportunities instead of problems and roadblocks.

Blessings instead of curses.

And a free mind is open to new choices.

You can make a new decision.

And that new decision

Well, it can change your whole fucking life.

Remember, you absolutely can Love Your Life and Live Your Dreams. It all begins within.
