The word “accept” brings the following things to mind:
the serenity prayer
“Jesus into your heart”
truth & evidence
phase of grieving
Acceptance of any of these things or anything at all is a choice. It gives the illusion of control, but it’s really about choosing to live in a reality where I am not in control and allowing myself to be ok with that. Acceptance is owning my powerlessness, but also understanding the power and beauty that is in the vulnerability of dependence and community. Acceptance is about rest and trust, living in a constant state of peaceful sabbath.
