Acceptance

Standard

I guess it comes with age? I don’t know. Acceptance. I used to think as a human being, as a teacher, as a woman, as a wife, as a student, as a friend (those are just some of the roles I’ve played in life so far) I had so much more control over the people, places and things in my life. I’ve now realized otherwise. I don’t have much control and I need to just accept all the people, places and things for what or who they are. I used to be really bad at that, especially with people. My students and my husband in particular have really helped me learn a lot about acceptance and accepting everything and everyone for what it is or who they are. Thank you students and husband. You’ve taught me to surrender, relinquish control and know that ALL IS WELL.

And I thought so differently about acceptance after reading Wild by Cheryl Strayed. See short video with Oprah here. what Cheryl Strayed learned after hiking the Pacific Crest Trail

People. People important to you, people unimportant to you cross your life, touch it with love or carelessness and move on. There are people who leave you and you breathe a sigh of relief and wonder why you ever came into contact with them. There are people who leave you and you breathe a sigh of remorse and wonder why they had to go away and leave such a gaping hole. Children leave parents, parent leave friends. Acquaintances move on. Friends love and move on. You think of the many who have moved into your hazy memory. You look on those present and wonder. I believe this is all part of a master plan. People move in and out of our lives, and each leaves his mark on the other. You find you are made up of bits and pieces of all who ever touched your life, and you are more because of it, and you would be less if they had not touched you. So far this is who I know that I am... PS I am a Spanish teacher (lucky enough to teach grade K-8!) living in the Chicago area, married to a handsome, intelligent and loving man, and I enjoy exercising and any thing that makes me laugh or smile!
