Acceptance is such a vital life skill. It awakens a real-time self-empowerment that works with the power of the here and now. So often I see humans handing over their sense of power as they resign themselves to “the way things are”. Gosh, I have done it waaaay more times than I care to admit.
Sure, “it is what it is”. And what it is was influenced by decisions made by ourselves and others, consciously or unconsciously, allowing those events and situations to occur.
When we can reconcile ourselves to our contribution to the way things are, it gives us a chance to gather up some more of our resources and ability to influence the future “way things are”.
You gotta know, this can involve some serious grieving of when we haven’t been in our power.
This can also involve coming to terms with amount of power we DO have, and that we CAN cultivate. Sometimes this is a tragic pill to swallow, acknowledging that we weren’t supported to see and use our power through our childhood years and beyond.
Take it slow and steady. Be honest in self-reflection through journalling and stream-of-conscious writing. Self-empathy exercises can go a long way.
There is so much power latent within ALL of us - doing the work to claim it is essential for the makings of a better world. Especially one that integrates all colours, genders, love choices, life practices, ages and abilities.
If you need a hand to help you start where you are and change the ending, I can help too. I know first hand that having the support of an other to navigate these waters can be such a valuable lifeboat. HMU for an explore call.
Step-by-step, hold your focus on the world you want to see and keep making those course-corrections that cultivate it into being. I know you’re way more capable than you think.
