Acceptance: Another Laura-ism


Nothing is ever permanent. Everything changes. Finding the lesson in this fact is through acceptance. This is just one of the many views through my window.

~ Perspective is everything.  Acceptance is a choice.~

Life is so unpredictable. This is why we must learn the beauty of acceptance. See it through a different perspective. Realize we have a choice. When challenges come our way, we can either accept it or resist it. Sometimes, reality can not be changed. Accepting helps us overcome and move forward.

How I wish there was a ‘cure all’ for challenges that come my way. If there was a just ‘a one-size-fits-all’ hat we could wear to avoid the heartaches. But there’s not.

 

Here are just a few of my own definitions of which acceptance has taught me.

Acceptance: acknowledging you have a heartache that just won’t go away

Acceptance: the decision to love despite the circumstances

Acceptance: the key to long-suffering

Acceptance: slang/It is what it is

Acceptance: unrestricted compassion

Acceptance: perception without judgement

Acceptance: living through faith

Acceptance: a journey of self-love

Acceptance: the liaison of differences in diversity

Acceptance: giving it over to God

I have learned that acceptance is not a weakness but a strength.

The power of acceptance is within each of us.

Please share your thoughts on acceptance. I am truly interested in hearing your thoughts.

The Audacity…


Do you sometimes find yourself wandering through life and wondering what lies ahead?  I don’t believe life is about finding ourselves…but more about discovering who God wants us to be.

He did not give us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love and self-discipline.

2 Timothy 1:7

“We were created to do amazing things”.  

AUDACIOUS…A word that just seems to roll right off my tongue with little effort and yet it has never been a part of my vocabulary.

The very thought of this word, to someone who has always been cautious and mild-mannered, can be intimidating. I’ve always wanted to be more adventurous and daring but somewhat fearful of the unknown.

Living out our story to the best of our ability will inspire others to do the same. And…giving God the glory proclaims the ultimate audacious truth that we are God’s masterpiece.

Just because I am a Christian doesn’t mean I can not live audaciously. We all have a story to tell. Why not tell it boldly? We can all live a more venturesome life to instill in others the motivation, enthusiasm and courage to do better. Love better. Live better.

I’m almost fifty-four years old.  YIKES! 🙂 What am I waiting for? I’m looking forward to a new perspective and the challenge of a “no-holds-barred” state of mind.

May our lives inspire others to seek the source of our happiness. Be confident in one thing! God has given all of us talents and He knows our abilities. If we start it…He will help finish it.

Until next time,
