Do you struggle to Accept certain things in your life?

ACCEPTANCE is a vital step in the journey towards finding inner peace and living an authentic life.

Let me tell you how our new puppy has been teaching us – big time – to accept a lot of changes in our lives. It was our decision, after many years of wanting a puppy, to invite this gorgeous litte Cockapoo (Miss Bailey) into our home… and hearts.

However, no matter how much people warned us, we were not quite prepared for the chaos she has brought with her.

Like any new first time puppy parents, we struggle with adjusting to the upheaval that comes along with such a small fur baby. A crate, pen, pee pads, chew toys and the list goes on. We have ACCEPT that we can’t go out and do things spare of the moment, nor can I keep our normal relaxed schedule – as her main hooman, I can only do things when she sleeps – thank goodness puppies sleep a lot!

It is only now I am in a place in my life that I can cope with all that owning a puppy involves – sharp teeth, smells, poop. A number of years back, I was a ‘perfectionist’ and serious ‘control freak’. This was part of my coping mechanism to keep functioning living with unresolved trauma and PTSD. I lived on my own and became OCD with everything having to be just right spot and hated when anyone entered my personal sanctuary and disrupted my space. Invasion caused me undue stress and anxiety.

Perfectionism is a burden
and a letting go through ACCEPTANCE
is liberating.

Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity
To ACCEPT the things I cannot change;
Courage to change the things I can;
And wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
ACCEPTING hardships as the pathway to peace; …



By working to understand and heal my past, helped me to reach a stage whereby I could accept things when they don’t go as planned (or should I say, to my ‘perfect expectation’… that’s a whole other blog topic!). 

Now, I think of the SERENITY PRAYER and if it something I can change, I’ll work to change it, otherwise I have to learn to let go of the things outside my control and ACCEPT.

When everyone else is falling apart,
be the voice of reason and calm.
That is the power of ACCEPTANCE.
