acceptance is not submission.

And it is not giving up.  Acceptance is ennobling and empowering.  Acceptance is not weakness; it is strength.

Acceptance is not to be confused with tolerance.  Accepting circumstances is not the same as liking them. Acceptance is not agreement.

Acceptance is the simple act of acknowledging truth.  When you accept, you begin to understand.  And when you understand, you can begin to alter.  Acceptance is an essential ingredient of change.

It brings light and hope.  It negates fear, anger, impatience, and resentment.  When you accept a circumstance, you cease to fight truth and begin to embrace it.  When you accept, you free yourself of innumerable burdens; you regain control.

Acceptance brings focus and inspiration.  It helps you to create and act on dreams.

By accepting, you get a leg up on the rest of the world.
