Lilly laid down on the lush green grass peppered with intermittent dead pieces from long periods of no rain striking at her bare leg. All Lilly could do was rest. She couldn’t think one more thought. Her head was throbbing from a sudden onset migraine. All Lilly wanted to do was be productive for the day. After all, she was on a roll knocking out tasks until noon hit and the migraine took over. There was little she could do until the headache subsided. Ever have something stop you in your tracks?
One of the hardest things to do is accept that where you are is not where you want to be. In our lives, we want better careers, better relationships, more money and more out of life. Sound familiar? Yet, we get frustrated along the way. We want to be there now. We get impatient. We want it to happen now.
Acceptance is not having to agree with your current situation. It’s about getting still and taking stock of where you are. What’s working right now? What needs change? Do you just need some rest?
Change is hard at first, messy in the middle and gorgeous at the end. – Robin Sharma
Acceptance allows you to enjoy the present moment and embrace the messy middle.
Today, how can you do this?
1) How can you accept what is?
2) How can you enjoy the moment (and even laugh at yourself)?
3) How can you embrace the messy middle?
Wishing you an abundant, joyful and prosperous day!
