“Acceptance is the portal to peace which I found through the ability to trust and forgive God, self and others. It will lead you on your path to Ah-Man.”
"When I first thought about acceptance, what came to mind was the thought about doing something without question. But I understand acceptance to be so much more. Today when I am in a state of acceptance, I will do something regardless if I have knowledge to validate going forward. Acceptance is absolute trust, absolute faith. When I am in “my” acceptance place, outside events can occur but they don’t trigger old reactions. When I am tapped in and turned on to my acceptance, I am in a place where I instinctually make the right choice about God, myself and others. Why? My primordial man is balanced with my Ah-Man. I do not even have to think about it. It truly is a state of peaceful resolve about all that comes into my life."

Here are some of my favorite quotes about “Acceptance:”

“Belief consists in accepting the affirmations of the soul; unbelief is in denying them.”–Ralph Waldo Emerson
“We must accept finite disappointment, but we must never lose infinite hope.”–Martin Luther King, Jr.
“Acceptance is not submission; it is acknowledgment of the facts of a situation. Then deciding what you're going to do about it.”–Kathleen Casey Theisen
And, of course, the best of the best . . .
“God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”–Reinhold Niebuhr
