Acceptance is the first step towards healing our past pain, hurt and perceived failures. In order to move forward with our lives, we have to accept our situation and the role we and others have played in creating our suffering. By acknowledging our hurt and pain we can start to see our situation for what it really is. By refraining from judgments and excuses we can begin the healing process and start creating an abundant life. Acceptance allows us to start having a clear vision necessary for unlocking our true potential.
