I am not above saying, I was wrong. I do believe acceptance of your current circumstances is the answer to your frustration in the moment and can be impetus for change.
For me, I have accepted my life. So much hope. So many dreams. The life I've lived brought me here. Loyalty. Love. Compassion. Now, I am at a fork in the road.
So, what is my role at this fork in the road? At this point I can't say definitively. What I can say is this; I will not live the rest of my days in darkness. I cannot. It is up to me to be responsible for my own happiness.
We all have our path in life. It is made up of our choices in the midst of our circumstances.
I have a tendency to jump other peoples path and mistakenly take it on as my own. I am on my path. It is up to me to take charge of it.
Yesterday, I made a choice to take charge of myself. The world did not come to an end, today is a day, like any other. The difference is in me. Today I know I can make choices based on how I feel and what I need, without necessarily hurting someone else.
So, acceptance of my present circumstances is the answer to today. I can also take which ever direction I choose at this fork. The key, for me, is to think it through before continuing in one direction or another.
Fantasizing the freedom to choose which tine in the fork to take.
