letting myself off the hook.

i shared earlier in the month that i (along with other bravehearts) am choosing acceptance over resolutions this january. acceptance as a safe place to land. acceptance as a means to emerge into new patterns clothed in grace and rest rather than performing or striving. 

you find peace not by rearranging the circumstances of your life, 
but by realizing who you are at the deepest level. 
-eckhart tolley
(thanks to hannah for sharing this quote.)

i accept 

it takes as long as it takes 

a break, a pause

an earlier bed time.

i accept 

that all of it counts, nothing is wasted

the flow

letting myself off the hook.

i accept




so although yes, i am going to the gym more regularly, yes, i am setting new goals and exploring expanded possibilities and opportunities (even for my little corner of the internet), i am taking off the hat of my own worst critic and picking up the hat of patience and compassion (which we so often pour out to others with no hesitation).  

you see, acceptance starts with us.
who we are.
not what we do.
or fail to do.

goodbye ---> more. improve. don't. stop. fix. hurry. guilt. deadlines. run faster.

i accept...
