The 2 Ss and Acceptance
Life's circumstances are not always what you might wish them to be. The pattern of life does not necessarily go as you plan. Beyond any understanding, you may at times be led in different directions that
you never imagined, dreamed, or designed. Yet if you have never put any effort into choosing a path, or tried to carry out your dream, then perhaps you would have no direction at all. Rather than wondering
about or questioning the direction your life has taken, accept the fact that there is a path before you.
Not a single person existed or exists or will ever exist without having hurdles or any personal pains.
Joyce Meyer, Oprah Winfrey, Helen Keller, Boll Gates, Lionel Messi, Steve Jobs, Nelson Mandela, Mother Teresa all these great people had their own challenges to face and see now, how people look at them,
the respect and honor paid to them, and the positive feelings they've left in so many lives is incredible.
They did it, because they accepted life. They accepted people and more they accepted themselves and loved and respected themselves. Bad things happen to everyone. You see, Self-respect (S), Self-love (S)
and Acceptance(A) of the change are the greatest commodities a person can own. The 2 Ss, Self-Respect and Self-Love, and Acceptance lead to a real happiness.
With self-respect, you know that you deserve the best and you will then go beyond the limit to do things that are right for you, without offending others and yourself.
With self-love, you will not run away from love, you embrace it and make more! You yourself, be your love and others will start loving you. And don't ever relate selfishness with self-love.
With acceptance, you can take on any challenge, bounce back from any fall, and make everything go right. You don't shy away from opportunities or challenges, instead you make best out of them!
Irrespective of whatever anybody else says or does, irrespective of how hard or easy it is, you stand firm, on the right path. You have to cultivate love in your heart in order to see and feel anything
worthwhile in this world, otherwise every small difficulty will seem as if it's a mountain to you.
Grass is green and sky is blue. If we question why the sky is not green or grass is not blue, you will miss so many things to cherish and to love and to live. Accept things as they are and do not question.
Similar is the case for challenges. They come your way to make your life more valuable and make you stand in the Orchestra and not in the crowd.
Choose to be someone worthy of your pride, respect, and admiration, and you will flourish and prosper. Accept the hurdles. Accept the Change, Love yourself and people. Respect yourself and the world, and
that's how we make a happier world. Walk with passion in your heart and your head held high. Challenges are already there.
