The past should be a springboard not a hammock.

Accept this moment

Accept the moment that is, as it is. Settle into it, easing away from dissatisfaction with the past, away from concern about the future.

Accept the situation that is, as it is. Once you do, you give yourself the power to transcend it.

Acceptance is about right now, and doesn’t mean you’re forever fine with the way things are. It means you’re clear, realistic, able to focus, able to act in beneficial ways.

Let go of your racing thoughts about what could have been, what might or might not happen. Stop second guessing yourself and center your thoughts and actions around a positive intention.

What’s done is done, and now is the time to make good use of it. Whatever challenges may loom ahead, the best way to meet them is with clarity and meaningful purpose.

Keep all your energy pointed toward what you can do right now to support those things that truly matter. Accept this moment fully, and empower yourself to create maximum value with it.
