Sunday Dinner: Acceptance

“For after all, the best thing one can do

when it is raining

is let it rain.”

 

.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

“No person is your friend

who demands your silence,

or denies your right to grow.”

.

Alice Walker

“Sometimes people let the same problem

make them miserable for years

when they could just say, So what.

That’s one of my favorite things to say.

So what.

.

Andy Warhol

“The ache for home lives in all of us.

The safe place where we can go as we are

and not be questioned.”

.

Maya Angelou

“IT happened.

There is no avoiding it, no forgetting.

No running away, or flying,

or burying, or hiding.”

.

Laurie Halse Anderson

“Nothing brings down walls

as surely as acceptance.”

.

Deepak Chopra

~

“The moment that judgement stops

through acceptance of what it is,

you are free of the mind.

You have made room for love, for joy, for peace.”

.

Eckhart Tolle

~

~

“Don’t look for peace.

Don’t look for any other state than the one you are in now;

otherwise, you will set up inner conflict

and unconscious resistance.

Forgive yourself for not being at peace.

The moment you completely accept your non-peace,

your non-peace becomes transmuted into peace.

Anything you accept fully will get you there,

will take you into peace.

This is the miracle of surrender”

.

Eckhart Tolle

Make your peace with that

and all will be well.”

    • Michael, it is so nice to hear from you. I hope that you and all of your family are doing well. I know you love the Hostas! Mine are doing exceptionally well this year and beginning to bloom. ❤ ❤ ❤

      • Good morning!
        We are all well! I hope you and your family are all healthy and safe too! My garden must be a little behind your garden, my hostas have not yet started to bloom but it won’t be to long before they do! Your garden is beautiful again this year!

        • Thank you, Michael. We’re all OK. Things are opening up here, but we are still staying home as much as we can. So happy to have a garden where I can get some exercise and have some fun! Your altitude may put your Hostas a little behind ours, but yours will be blooming before you know it! ❤

  2. Love all those quotes abd these beautiful pictures!
