Tolle Tuesday...

Whatever you cannot enjoy doing, you can at least accept that this is what you have to do. Acceptance means: For now, this is what this situation, this moment, requires me to do, and so I do it willingly.



This is definitely the way I try to live. I don't always succeed, of course, but I like this reminder that acceptance takes one aspect of pain away -- that of fighting what we cannot change. For this new year of 2011, I hope to accept those things I truly cannot change and do my best to persevere and do (or be) willingly, even in less-than-lovely circumstances.

What does this say to you?
