It felt noteworthy to me to accept who I am, where I’ve been, and where I am now, with the understanding that, at differing points in my life, my reasoning abilities may have been flawed, or fear overrode them, or future consequences were shrouded. Still, I accept my relationships, my life, the entire package. You might be asking … What other option do you have? Well, I could berate myself, judge myself harshly, or feel bitter. And I have, at times. But not today.
There are situations I could have handled more honestly, more lovingly, but my personal failings and limitations stood in the way of this. I accept this too.
While walking, and talking to a trusted friend, taking responsibility for the life I created (it’s not a bad life) and the people I choose to keep in it felt comfortable and genuine – even with the failures, the lost friendships and broken dreams, indeed, perhaps because of them. If I can increase my consciousness, my courage, and my awareness – it’s been a good day!
