"Acceptance of what has happened is the first step to overcoming the consequences of any misfortune." William James
We know what misfortune is and what it does to our health and wellness. We just don't know how to handle it when it comes. The consequences overwhelm and seek to devour our spirit. Accepting is hard. It is a process.
I am learning to be patient with myself as I accept the misfortunes demanding my attention. Patient that I will learn to accept.
