26 days 26 ways of healing, helping, loving, sharing and caring. I am super excited with this challenge, as I feel so motivated to write, I have something to look ahead for the next 26 days and I got enough food for my brain 🙂 Here I present to you my very first blog post for the #BLOGCHATTERA2Z Challenge starting with the letter ‘A’.
Here I will not say that accept the person the way he or she is to make your life bit easy weasy, rather I am going to stress on making even with SELF first, Self Acceptance is certainly the key to happiness, before accepting others the way they are, accepting the glorious mess we are inside-outside helps to override the glory and flurry of others. We hustle, we struggle, we succeed, we fail, we rise, we shine and we just move on, but do we really move on with life? While traveling in this train of life, we come across so many stations we leave unexplored, unraveled, untraveled, we try to discover, we try to unfold so many hidden truths, deepest desires, unspoken words and in the end we just stress our mind our body, the body in which we reside, the mind which is the prime tool of our living.
The first step towards making yourself and your circumstances acceptable to others is by beginning to accept your own truth. One needs to accept and take responsibility for self in order to rise above all odds in life. Self-Acceptance does not only stress on self-understanding but also helps in self-introspection which helps us understand our weaknesses and strengths. You certainly cannot be anything and everything you want to be but if you focus on what you are today, it might help you to make the road to success bit easier to travel.
We put tremendous pressure on ourselves looking at others, comparing our success metrics with others. We might not be capable of doing something today, but maybe tomorrow we might be in a much better state of mind and body to outperform others. If we keep cursing ourselves for things we could not do and goals we could not crack, we will start missing out a part of us every time we do it, and then a point will come when we will no longer be able to sustain anything in life.
Accept your present situation, If you are fighting an illness, be aware it is temporary you will recover and you will shine. If you are unemployed, take charge of your life, stop not till you get the job of your dreams or create one for yourself. If you are single, betrayed, heartbroken, accept, it was just not meant to be and do not punish yourself over and over again thinking about it. The more you punish yourself for the things happened in the past or things which are beyond your control the more will go closer to depression, anxiety, and stressful emotions.
“Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them – Albert Einstein”
Accept your presence, Accept what you have today as nobody can go back and undo what is done but can certainly work on the present scenario for a better tomorrow. We human beings are masters of our thoughts and perceptions. Let us not make it harder for us, Take it easy. Accept your truth, work on it, Don’t forget to smile, Love yourself, embrace your self, deal with self with a little bit of sensitivity and love. No one else but you are the personal caretaker of your OWN SELF. Take Charge.
Much Love and Much Gratitude
