The Power of Acceptance: Relishing the Good Times

Life seems exceptionally good to some people.  Their lives soar on a tide of apparently endless luck.  Those of us who belong to the ‘glass half-empty’ crowd can look on with everything from amazement to jealousy.  Yet, in my experience, those ‘lucky’ people have ways of creating their own luck through by being open to the opportunities life presents to all of us, but we don’t always see or embrace.  Read more about  The Power of Acceptance – Relishing the Good Times in  the November issue of Sibyl Magazine.

The Power of Acceptance: Celebrating My Talents

Sometimes it’s difficult to recognize our own talents, much less celebrate them.  If we’ve do something every day and do it well, we ourselves often take it for granted.  If we have a firm belief in place that we “should” be good at our job, then doing our job well becomes just something we do.  It doesn’t stand out as a talent to be recognized and celebrated.

The Power of Acceptance: Letting Go of “Should” (1 of 12)

The Power of Acceptance – Letting Go of Should  is the first of 12 articles on the power of acceptance in daily life, published in Sibyl Magazine.   Accepting what is, reality, can open a world of possibilities, possibilities we can’t see while we remain stuck in what “should” be.  Letting go of our “should” about ourselves, others and life in general  can bring freedom of choice and the power to co-create our own lives.

“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.” -Lao Tzu

Quotes for Life: Zen Proverb
