It will be okay.

Sometimes we don’t get what we want or what we planned. Life gives us something else instead. Sometimes our wishes and reality are somewhat aligned. Sometimes they’re not even close.

We struggle. Rage, frustration, grief, disappointment, defeat—all are possible responses. We certainly wish we’d gotten our way. And we don’t want to accept that we may not.

But regardless of our reaction, life goes on. Things will be as they are. And that’s okay. It’s our resistance and lack of acceptance that makes the situation harder than it might be otherwise. As soon as we bow gracefully to what is, we free ourselves to find goodness in life again.

Today’s message suggests that I may need to accept what is. By recognizing good in some aspect of what is, I make my life better.

Please reflect and share. What might you benefit from accepting?
