Acceptance

Molly Fisk recently shared an interesting notion via Facebook.  She wrote a beautiful story about selecting a word–for the year–that beckons personal exploration; a word that would open up the year ahead. There is no need to rush into selecting my word, she wrote, and to contemplate my intention before choosing the word that I wanted to reflect what I would invite into my life–at least for 2010. Please enjoy Molly’s rich and inspiring words here: http://tinyurl.com/yhxayo5

My word is ACCEPTANCE. Acceptance.
1. The act of taking or receiving something offered. 2. Favorable reception; approval; favor. 3. The act of assenting or believing.
Molly further writes about learning the derivative of the word: ac.cept.er, noun. Late Middle English; from Latin ‘acceptare’; “to take something to oneself”.
“To Take Something To Oneself”. This captures perfectly my intention, my invitation, my truth for 2010.

The best thing I did when I discovered I had Type 2 Diabetes was to call Robin Mallery. She coached me to craft a plan to turn this condition around, and the encouragement to believe that I can.  Instead of feeling overwhelmed, I am managing well, using Robin’s program of small steps, achievable goals, and positive reinforcement.  She’s not only a fountain of knowledge and experience, but a loving teacher and motivator.  For the first time in years, I don’t feel helpless about eating and weight gain.  Thank you, Robin!
