Accept life of life's terms

So back today from our little break in Tauranga, I will post some pics as soon as I am able to. I have tomorrow off and really looking foward to going to Aqua aerobics with Maryanne at the Freyberg swimming pool. 

The NAWLS Small Bite today is:

Accept life on life's terms.
Rather than think the whole world needs fixing, you can accept things today for what they are. You can choose to be disturbed that the world does not conform to your standards, or you can find joy in the people around you. 

Accept who you are today - and accept others, no matter how imperfect theya re. 

Action for the day:
Today, look at the world through new eyes as a place to be appreciated, not changed.

This reminds me of something Simon once said about how he approaches other people and life in general, which is that we are just extras in someone elses movie. We are not the star attraction, just a random walking down the street. If we conciously take a step back and look at life from another angle we actually see much more and I think see the beauty it in. Also, we might appreciate that other people might see us quite differently as well. Things are what they are, and generally there is stuff all that you can do to change it......and actually should we try to?
