Over the next few months, I would love to show you a beautiful yet simple system that will enable you to truly connect with yourself on a deeper level and become more of the real, authentic you.
I use the PACE model every day of my life and this has become a way of being for me. When life is amazing, I use the PACE model, when life is tricky for others, I share the PACE model. I would love to share it with you.
There are four elements: Play, Acceptance, Curiosity and Engaging. They can be used in order, but equally, not used in order but, used depending on what is happening, where you would like to be in your life; a process to help others.
In Part 2 of this series, let us discover the second element A: Acceptance
ACCEPTANCE is all that is
Have you often thought what this word really means? In everything that we read about life, there is the word acceptance. Even though I use the word a lot (and I mean a lot, lots of laughs), I had never really stopped and thought about the significance of the word acceptance.
To me, acceptance is being there for the other person regardless of what is happening for them. It is unconditional. You accept everything about the person from their wishes, feelings, thoughts, their inner selves and how they see the world. You accept the good, the bad and everything in between.
This is true connection and acceptance.
Winne the pooh has this powerful quote about acceptance:
“Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day.”
Another one of my favourites is The Prayer of Serenity:
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change
Courage to change the things I can and
Wisdom to know the difference.
People who know me well know this saying that I recite often:
It is what it is.
It was what it was.
It will be what it will be.
Acceptance is an amazing place of tranquility and enables us to see the experience for what it is. Acceptance is releasing and moving forward and we never go back to the same way. It changes our thoughts, feelings and the way we see the experience.
Have you thought about teaching your young child about acceptance? Do they truly know the power of acceptance?
- Teach them the meaning of the word acceptance.
- Use the word acceptance in your vocabulary or the quotes (my grandchildren know my quotes of acceptance). My granddaughter even made me a poster for Christmas, which I cherish.
- Model to your young people how to accept everything in life, the good and the tricky.
- Create an acceptance routine or quote for you.
- Create a quote poster for the fridge.
- Best of all celebrate acceptance being a part of your life.
I look forward to hearing about how acceptance is part of your life!
