Above is an image of a little Bonsai Tree from my Bonsai Garden. This tree must accept its life in a small pot and never growing tall. It could get angry, it could get frustrated, and it could protest, but its situation is not going to change. ACCEPTANCE is often looked upon as a weakness, as fatalism, as being life's doormat. Acceptance in reality is not that at all. Think for a moment it you were told you had cancer. You would be angry, feel helpless, and imagine the worst, but by accepting your condition only then could you learn more about your condition and seek the appropriate treatment. ACCEPTANCE is not an inaction, but ACCEPTANCE is ACTION. Remember the the little Bonsai Tree above, no matter how small you feel, ACCEPTANCE will allow you to manage your situation with dynamic action.
