Holly & Heather’s Helpful Hint: Gradual Acceptance
We’ve written about the acceptance of change before. Sometimes change is good and good for us and sometimes not so much. There are times when we are looking forward to the change as we are now moving from winter to spring. But sometimes the change is dreadful and we know our lives will never be the same once it is undertaken.
Then there is that subtle, almost imperceptible change. A change from within us that maybe has been taking place for a long time without us even realizing it. It’s like a seed lying dormant in the ground for so long until one day it shoots up from the earth. We instantly acknowledge the new plant and can look back and see how we were watering and caring for it all along!
Sometimes, though, the shift within us isn’t as pretty as a flower. Self-realization can often turn out that way. Knowing that we can’t change others or maybe can’t even change certain situations, we begin to change ourselves. Maybe even unconsciously. Is that making you change for the good or the bad? How can you steer that change within yourself toward the positive? Keep hope alive in a change for the better. Coming to a gradual acceptance about ourselves and our circumstances can be a good thing. It helps us cope and can give us a better outlook.
