What part of your reality can you meet with more acceptance?
—Calm App Reflection
During the cold months Wendy and I often spend some of our quality time watching TV. Although we sometimes differ in what constitutes quality viewing, we both agree that NBC’s “This Is Us” is toward the top of our list.
In a recent episode, the mother is diagnosed with plaque in her brain, with early signs of memory loss and dementia. Realizing this decline and other aspects of the aging process she does a beautiful job taking the viewer through many challenging feelings and emotions. Her authenticity, vulnerability, and courage to meet her reality with greater acceptance is done with grace and warmth.
Where would greater acceptance of your reality support you in living a more fulfilling and satisfying life? Consider trying an equanimity meditation to explore being more accepting of your reality as a daily practice.
