Do You Accept This Moment?

Do you accept this moment?

 
One of my mentors asked me this question and I immediately said: “yes, of course, I do”.

He asked, “are you sure? Do you fully and completely accept this moment exactly as it is, exactly as you are?

And, well…

I had to pause. I wanted to say ‘yes’.

But…

I couldn’t.

I had just been arguing about the state of my business and the way a conversation had gone in a relationship and I was annoyed with the day.

Yea, I was soooo not in acceptance.
 

Thankfully, we can move into acceptance at any moment.
All it takes is making the decision.

 
Now, a question for you are you in acceptance?
 

Do you accept this moment, exactly as it is, exactly as you are right here, right now?

 
Can you hand on your heart say I accept this moment?

If there is any part of your life you’re still wishing were different, then you aren’t in acceptance.

If there’s any aspect of your body that you’d like to be different, then you’re not in acceptance.
 

If there’s ANYTHING at all in ANY area of your life that you’re arguing against, complaining about, hoping and wishing it weren’t as it is…then you’re not in acceptance.

 
Now, here comes the trap that so many of us fall into…

We realize we aren’t in acceptance but are in resistance and then we immediately jump on the judgment train.
 

We start criticizing ourselves for being in resistance.

We move DEEPER into resistance.

 
When we do this we get further from the loving, joyful, peaceful inner state we desire.

BUT, you CAN choose to change this.

Right now, you can choose to accept this moment.
 

You can choose to accept this moment, right here, right now exactly as it is exactly as you are.

 
It’s a choice. And it’s always available.

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