Accept where you are, what you have, what you can do.
It doesn’t mean you can be lazy or hold your hands up and say, “This is it”.
Acceptance requires strength, patience, stamina and orgaisation.
We have all had times when things are not going our way or aren’t exactly how we would like them to be.
Worry, frustration, impatience and resentment can rise up and take over. These negative feelings can spiral out of control and the more you focus on them, the more you will find them in your current situation.
But what if you acknowledged where you are at and accepted it, as not your final destination, but simply where you are at the present moment?
⭐️ What if you accepted where you are until you could change it?
⭐️ What if you looked for what you can learn in your current situation?
⭐️ What if you made a plan detailing all the small steps needed to get you where you wanted?
⭐️ What if you stopped comparing yourself to others and looked to them for inspiration instead?
Give yourself a break.
In the quest to be your own kind of beautiful – true strength comes in the form of accepting where you are, whilst continually looking forward.
In what areas of your life do you need to practise a little acceptance? Reflect on why this may be and what small steps can you take to make improvements.
Above all – accept that you got this.
