There is Power in Acceptance...

The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I am able to change.
— Carl Rogers

There is power in acceptance, in accepting pain, poor character traits, loss. There is power in giving yourself the space to be human and flawed and imperfect. This is the message that is coming through loud and clear at this time. I struggle with habitual and painful ways of perceiving the world. I limit myself with my own fearful thinking. Today I accept this about myself. I will not berate nor beat myself up for feeling this way. That would be like dumping shit on top of shit.
Instead, I accept this pattern. I accept it and work to improve it simultaneously. There is power in acceptance.
