Today I’ve been thinking about acceptance.  Acceptance is so simple, notice their are no adjectives around the word…it just IS!  Part of being whole in your body and your life is living in acceptance.  When you accept who you are, where you are, what you are doing, something amazing happens, you are free.  Wow, I said it!  I mean FREE.   There is no more waiting for this or that to happen, you are just right in the middle of your life and your body and your world.  Its almost humbling.  When I think of all the years of my life that I have skirted acceptance, it makes me a little sad, for all the lost time.

I’m experimenting these days with being present and accepting who and where I am right now.  I like how peaceful I feel.  It’s like being in a yoga class in pidgeon pose.  You can’t escape that, you are just there.  While you are in that pose, really saturated in it, there are no noises in your head.  When you come out of pidgeon pose, fresh blood rushes to all those joints in the body and energy pulses through your veins.  So, when I’m not always in my head, playing out another fantasy of what my life would be like if I were different, I get to feel that energy and really live my life.  Fantastic!

I’m going to tell you something that its taken me years to learn.  The well dressed woman isn’t wearing Prada, she’s wearing Acceptance and self love.♥
