Pastel Horizon by Dan Sutherland

Acceptance: Acknowledgement of the truth regarding a situation or condition; appreciation and validation of one's own and others' human personalities (even traits we may wish to change); letting go of resistance and denial; absolute cooperation with the inevitable.

• 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…Anonymous

• The one resolution, which was in my mind long before it took the form of a resolution, is the keynote of my life.  It is this, always to regard as mere impertinences of fate the handicaps which were placed upon my life almost at the beginning.  I resolved that they should not crush or dwarf my soul, but rather be made to  blossom, like Aaron's rod, with flowers…Helen Keller

• Acceptance is not submission; it is acknowledgement of the facts of a situation. Then deciding what you're going to do about it.…Kathleen Casey Theisen

• I have supplied the best men with the best equipment that we have, and given them what seems to be the wisest mission. That is all I can do. If a ship has been sunk, I can't bring it up. If it is going to be sunk, I can't stop it. I can use my time much better working on tomorrow's problem than by fretting about yesterdays. Besides, if I let those things get me, I wouldn't last long…Admiral Ernest J. King

• Cooperate with the inevitable; we all have inherent limitations and will make mistakes…O.P Maximus

• Acceptance is not love. You love a person because he or she has lovable traits, but you accept everybody just because they're alive and human…Albert Ellis

• Change the changeable, accept the unchangeable, and remove yourself from the unacceptable…Denis Waitely

• A man cannot be comfortable without his own approval…Mark Twain

• Face your deficiencies and acknowledge them; but do not let them master you. Let them teach you patience, sweetness, insight…Helen Keller

• Life is a struggle, accept it…Mother Teresa

• We must have strong minds, ready to accept facts as they are…Harry S Truman

• Enlightenment is nothing more than the complete absence of resistance to what is. An absolute cooperation with the inevitable…Adyashanti
