If the secret to happiness and contentment can be expressed in one sentence or phrase, it is this.
ALWAYS ACCEPT, WHAT IS.
What is, IS! You may resist, kick and scream to high heaven or whatever but “what is” remains unchanged and unaffected. Accept what ever the present moment brings always and forever, graciously, with poise, patience and dignity and you will have mastered life.
This is not to say that you can’t have preferences for something different but if you let those desires spoil the present moment, you bring negativity, disappointment and unhappiness into your life.
After all, the eternal, ever changing present moment is all you will ever have.
or so, me thinks 🙂
