Day 1638: We accept

Do we accept that I saw this yesterday?

Do we accept that seeing that worn-down sign  got me thinking about what we accept?

Should we accept everything?  Do we accept injustice, cruelty, and other unacceptable things?

I believe that radical acceptance — recognizing and accepting completely the realities of the moment — is necessary before we can move toward change and improvements.

Do we accept that?

Do you accept my other photos from yesterday?

I make a wish that we have the  serenity to accept the things we cannot change,  the courage to change the things we can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Can we accept that I just quoted the serenity prayer?

Should we accept this Airbnb commercial called “We Accept” which aired during the 2017 USA Super Bowl Game?

 

As always, we accept comments at this blog.

Please accept my thanks to all who helped me create today’s post and to you — of course! — for your kind acceptance.

  1. Yes, Ann, I accept your photos, your prayer, your start to my day. Thank you.

  2. I accept all you wrote today and think based on the photo of the duck basket I was correct in my guess that you bought it. 🙂 Do you accept my answer?

  3. I accept your intention for the day is to find photos worth sharing and quirky ideas worth spreading — like a piggy shaker hitchhiking in a duck! 🙂

  4. As a classic case of someone who was always there to help other people, it took me half a lifetime to learn that not to accept what others give is depriving them of the pleasure

  5. A friend of mine shares a story about the time she was in a therapy group and felt accepted. She would go on to become a professional therapist, like you. It may be a cliche that accepting yourself is the key to accepting others, but I accept that it’s still true.

  6. Love the Great White photobomb! I accept that Michael bought you the duck basket and the pig with holes for toothpicks! What fun!

  7. I gladly accept the brilliance of you.

  8. Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you for your blog.

  9. I accept you are awesome, I accept I am cold, I accept I am fat and I accept that I am loved

  10. I think there is a decided difference between acceptance and complacency.

  11. This is a beautifully challenging and inspirational post, Ann. I am challenged by what you’ve shared about radical acceptance. Your statements give me a lot to think about. I accept the challenge!

  12. Excellent post. That shark photo bomb creeped me out and was funny. Best wishes.
