Another Look at Self-Acceptance

I spoke with a woman who had attended one of my retreats and has stayed in touch with me over the years. In her wisdom, she shared that she is now in a place where she recognizes that she is on a path that is different from others. It is uniquely hers. And then she said, "I realized it didn't make me less or more. It's just what is."

You might also be in this place of really owning YOUR path and accepting all of it for what it is without comparing yourself to others. And if not, what would be different for you if you did have this belief? How would you feel? What would you create from this place?


I surrender to what is present in my life NOW. I accept myself and the life that I've created. I follow my heart's path.  I feel free to live an unconventional life.
