To accept the world as it is without losing hope; this is the great journey of adulthood and maturity.
To accept people for who they are, not for who you wish them to be; this is the great task of love.
To accept that though disappointment and pain are part of our lot in this life, they are only a piece of the story and need not be the headline; this is the great aim of hope.
If I can fully embrace these three things, I believe the end result for me will be much greater peace and deeper joy.
Perhaps it can be the same for you.
