Mindful : December 2017
→ “I panicked and started crying. All I could think about was what a disaster it was. “Eventually, I started to realize that even though rewriting the report was a total night- mare, it was my only option. I could stay up all night crying about it, or I could accept that I had to start over and get going on it. So that’s what I did. I spent a few minutes watching my breath to help me calm down. Once I calmed down, I remembered there were pieces of the report I could recover from elsewhere, and I just got to work. “Every now and then I would start feeling sorry for myself and think, Why does this always happen to me? Then I’d say to myself, It is what it is, take a deep breath, and keep typing. It did suck, but I got it done, and in the end I was rela- tively calm about the whole thing.” Notice that Maxine never did decide to like her situation, but she didn’t waste precious time and energy cursing her fate, either. She accepted it and kept moving. Acceptance has nothing to do with giving up. Rather, acceptance means that you acknowledge the reality of the injustice and then act with wisdom to effectively promote change. Practicing Acceptance I annoy my daughter when I say in response to her complaints, “Sounds like another opport u- nity to practice acceptance.” That may sound flippant, but actually, anytime you notice something not going your way, it is a great time to practice acceptance. Remember, you practice acceptance simply by acknowledging the truth of the present situation; you don’t have to decide → CONTEMPLATE THIS “Mindfulness meditation doesn’t change life. Life remains as fragile and unpredictable as ever. Meditation changes the heart’s capacity to accept life as it is.” —Sylvia Boorstein 76 mindful December 2017 insight
