How many times in your life have you been fighting against things that happened to you? Looked others to blame for what happened? Do you think that you are not good enough? Have you ever thought there´s something that needs to change in your body or how do you look? Do you see yourself as a victim of circumstances? 

If you say yes for any of these questions, you need more acceptance in your life. Acceptance isn´t when you tell to yourself that ”This is just how I am. I cannot do any better. This is just how my life is.” That´s not acceptance, that´s pitying yourself. It´s putting yourself in victim role. Accepting means that you become aware of all of your sides and lovingly accept that this is you. This is who you are. You are not blaming yourself or others anymore. Instead, you start taking charge of your actions. 

Once you accept yourself you become more powerful. You begin to know your own strength. You are so much stronger and more powerful than you ever imagined. Accepting means allowing the flow to take place in you and in your life. You are not trying to hide anything anymore. You know that you are good enough as you are. No energy is wasted anymore. You can use your energy on making your life better and happier. You can start living your life as you are.

Only after you accept yourself, you have a chance to change yourself. As long as you blame for circumstances, nothing happens. You have all it takes, but you need to start doing things. Take charge of your life. Do not wait until something changes. Change your habits to change your life. 

When you change, your circumstances will change too.
