Chapter 4, Page 25, Book 19

Life is difficult.  This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths.  It is a great truth because once we truly see the truth, we transcend it.  Once we truly know that life is difficult - once we truly understand and accept it - then life is no longer difficult.  Because once it is accepted, the fact that life is difficult to longer matters.

M. Scott Peck

April 25th - acceptance

Life is never fair, and perhaps it is good thing for most of us that its not.

Oscar Wilde

Many people are in the habit of saying that Life is not Fair.  It never is.  Life is unpredictable at best.  When life hurts, you can be angry with your circumstances or you can be accepting.  You cannot improve anything that you can not accept.

On a daily basis we are consumed with regrets, failures and insecurities that plaque our minds.

How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.

Annie Dillard

Accepting what we dont like may be one of the most difficult aspects of life, but Im all for taking action and changing what we can and letting go and letting God, when we cant.

We are all a bit stereotype when it comes to accepting the truth.  Nothing hurts more than the truth and the truth is life is not fair.

The truth is that in life, we’re all carrying the same load, but what differentiates us how we choose to carry it. We can change how we feel about them.

Accept your situation and change your outlook, Life is too short not be making the best out of situations and fretting over things.  What ever happens, happens. We don’t have control over our circumstances, but we can change how we look at them.

Be not afraid of life.  Believe that life is worth living and your belief will create the fact.

William James

Acceptance can be a bitter pill to swallow, for sure. Yet, while reading this, I was reminded of Rose Kennedy's attitude. For example, "Birds sing after a storm; why shouldn't people feel as free to delight in whatever remains to them?" (Yes, I had to look that up! LOL.)

So true that we need to be acceptant of things especially things we can't have any control of or can't readily change. Life is good, but life has its moments whether we want to call those moments unfair or just part of life I think is how we deal with them and accept them and move on as best we can.

Oh boy - acceptance is hard. Harder to teach to a child. I think you really do have to understand life isn't fair. Makes things better.

Acceptance is probably the hardest thing I have ever learned. You said it well, still a hard lesson to LEARN!
Beautiful day here.
Sherry & jack.
