Moving To Acceptance
Moving To Acceptance
The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. Lao Tzu
I'm not sure there is a moving company one can call when you are preparing to move to acceptance. Moving to acceptance is one of those moves that you have to do on your own. Sure, it is important to receive some help with this move, but in the long run, moving to acceptance is a journey that you have to take yourself. Moving to acceptance does come with a few bumps in the road; there will be days during the move where there will be smooth sailing where you can see for miles upon miles. Oh, then there are those days when those darn red lights appear at an intersection which just stops you in your tracks! The red light just seems go on and on, where you beat at the steering wheel and just want to scream so that you can get on with your journey! (Those are the days during this move when screaming is Okay!.) When that red light just seems to linger on and on, this is a good time to take a break from your journey before you run out of gas. When you run out of gas, you never get to move to acceptance.
There is no GPS device that will help guide you on the move to acceptance, but there will be riders along the journey to help you plan your route. These riders often appear out of the sky blue, when you need them the most. They don't mind helping you with your move, because they see your road from their point of view and know just what to say and just what to do while on this important journey. What is great about these riders is they reconnect you to your path on your move to acceptance. Some of these riders might have been on their own move to acceptance and have arrived at their destination. There will be a rider or two who you haven't seen in a while who will jump in the car. Yet even after years gone by, you pick up just where the two of you left off and there is full sailing again. Heck, you might even pick up a friendly hitchhiker along they way, someone you may not know, yet has their own path to share. All these riders have their own place in the vehicle and tend to stay just long enough to get you back on the road to acceptance.
The great thing about moving to acceptance is that you do not have to take the super highway to arrive at your destiny. Moving to acceptance is better suited for those country roads where you can drive at your own pace, and in your own time. Then there are days on your journey where you can pull off the road and take the scenic view. Cherish those scenic days because the scenic views are often filled with wonderful memories which help us move to acceptance. As you get closer to your destination, the scenic views will be like picture book that sits on your coffee table, however, this book will be forever yours, always entrenched in your memory, always with you on your move to acceptance.
That is what is so great about this move to acceptance, the great views, the great people, and then arriving at the destination with all the memories of the great journey intact. Is there a specific sign that you have moved to acceptance? Well, that sign is going to be different for each one of us, as will be the time it takes for the move to acceptance. Yet a tell-tail-sign that you are getting close to arriving at acceptance is when those scenic views turn from sadness to joy and you begin to accept that after your long travel in search of what you need, you come to understand that what you need will always be right inside your heart.
Wishing you and yours a Happy Holiday Season
