Chapter 9, Page 14, Book 16

We all have the means to bestow on others the most lavish gifts; love, joy, peace, hope, kindness, acceptance, encouragement, laughter, forgiveness, time. There is not enough money to buy them and not too little money to give them. The more you spend, the wealthier you become; yet nothing will cost you more than what you freely possess to give. 

Eden Eliot

September 14th - accept

Give love and unconditional acceptance to those you encounter, and notice what happens. 

Wayne Dyer

When it comes to living a positive life, acceptance is key, particularly acceptance of others. Sometimes we think our way is best and when others disagree or act in a way we don’t understand, we tend to become judgmental and critical of them. Not accepting others is a result of seeing the negative in them. 

The greatest gift that you can give to others is the gift of unconditional love and acceptance. 

Brian Tracy

I think there are times we all struggle to accept others as they are, especially those closest to us, but it’s important to recognize that becoming more accepting of others is one way to make our relationships with others more positive. The more accepting we are, the more our relationships can flourish. And the more our relationships flourish, the more positive experiences we’ll have with others.

When we shift our thoughts from judging to accepting, not only others, but also ourselves, we can restore our happiness.

Acceptance of others, their looks, their behaviors, their beliefs, bring you an inner peace and tranquillity -- instead of anger and resentment

I agree to bloom where planted. I think too we need to accept ourselves along with accepting others.

I was just saying to my girl the other day, I am going to have to realize somethings. As the statement goes, 'It is what it IS'. I must learn to accept! LOL

The last quote is easier said than done. But I of course it is the right thing to do.
