Day 45: ACCEPTANCE….

(This is the ninth in  a series of 12 posts for my manual :The 12 Steps to Personal Transformation. It follows: Surrender, Patience, Yoga on and off the mat, Stop, Community, Self-Care, Self-Love, and Desires/Dreams.)

Here’s a little fable about acceptance that I was told by my friend Reverend Richard Rogers of the Unity of Naples Church in Naples Florida when I was really really struggling with acceptance and the path that was being revealed to me for my life journey.

Buffalo and cows are grazing fairly close together on the Plains. A storm approaches; the wind picks up, the rain starts to fall. The cows begin to run away from the storm; the buffalo run toward it. Who do you think gets soaked and more wet?

The cows, of course.

And the sun eventually shone on the buffalo again Susan.

About livebig365

Join me as I dive in to the deep end of the pool and challenge myself to live big and love big. What does that mean? In 2012 , I accepted the invitation to push myself beyond my comfort zone, at least once a day, and engaged and responded to my life, or a given situation in my life, in a way that would normally scare the hell out of me. Why did I do it it? Because it was time time to begin, and I was ready! Each day brought a new revelation, lesson, challenge, encounter, a teaching moment, that revealed to me that living big and loving big are uniquely interconnected. Welcome 2013, the year of lovebig 365. Each post was an expression of love experienced, witnessed, inspired, manifested. It didn't always make sense in the moment, and yet its sheer mystery hopefully evoked a beautiful affirmation of life and all of its shimmery brightness; broken up, lovely to behold, tender and full of purpose. 2014, jagged, bumpy, disjointed posts. 2015, silence, and plenty of growth within that silence. Manifesting 2016: The creation of a gathering place for gratitude. Join in the wavering, audacious, unequivocal fun. 2017: Reflection 2018: POWER, MAGIC, TRANSFORMATION
