I took a week off of blogging just to recuperate after losing my cat. Sometimes it’s important to sit back, reflect and give yourself time to process your feelings.Later in the week I got a call that my Grandma who lives in North Carolina was in the hospital with some medical issues so it really was a whirlwind of a week. But grandma is doing okay and it’s time to get back to blogging!
All of these issues in my life got me thinking a lot about acceptance. I think when you’re going through something difficult like a breakup, a death or a disappointment, you get so caught up in not understanding why things have to be this way. Why do people and pets have to die? Why do bad things happen to good people? Why do some great couples break up? A lot of the questions we have, we’ll never have answers to.
Life is a series of ups and downs and it will always be this way. Something I’ve learned and something I feel compelled to share with others is learning about ACCEPTANCE. Dwelling on a situation will continue to make you feel worse and worse. The human mind tends to have a hard time accepting things and you might keep replaying things over and over in your head. But you have to find it in you to accept the things you can’t change.
We’re so fortunate that as humans we have a lot of choices in life. But there are certain things in life that I truly believe and know we do not have a choice in. And these are the things we have to accept. We have to wake up every day knowing that we will get through what we’re going through and that everything WILL be okay.
Acceptance isn’t something that is easy but it’s something that’s really important for your mental health. Dwelling is damaging. For me what helps is simply making an effort every day to tell yourself that this is how life is. Life is hard. Life is amazing. We’re here and we have to make the most of it.
