Acceptance


Boho accepting, Canon Digital Rebel XT

In her post yesterday, Susannah said something so beautifully that moved deep within me:

"This last year has felt like my own gestation, birthing my new self, my home and, tentatively, my book."

As I read these words, a peace traveled through me, a sweet knowing, a voice within that said "yes". Perhaps throughout this journey I have been pregnant all along. A gestation period marking the growth of my inner child, my raw creativity, my bravery, the baring of my true soul. And what is birthing within me is a new self.

Acceptance.

So, I told her. And now she knows that her eloquent words describing her experience this past year have altered yet another soul for the good. Thank you, dear friend for your bravery. It is changing lives, including my own.

Pure acceptance is akin to forgiveness. It is not always the easy thing to do, but a choice we must make. Parents, childhoods, friendships, relationships...and so on...all have the potential to stunt our growth. We may have done nothing to encourage this, but it is I/we who must choose to keep moving forward. We must believe in our dreams, we must hope for our futures, we must forgive and grow.

I have watched you struggle with your inner gifts and beauty. I have also watched you grow, bloom and accept. A birthing all your own.

Have peace on your journey and know that we are all walking forward with you, by you...near

I love you ~ Dar
