Sunday Sayings . . .

Acceptance > Expectations. Re-pinned by Sandhill. www.sandhillcounseling.com:

Sometimes acceptance is a very difficult pill to swallow.  You leave that door cracked open the tiniest of bits.  You leave it open with a prayer as your door stop.  Then, just like that, you know it's time to close it completely.  You know there's no reason to hold onto hope any longer.  You wonder why you've been dealt the hand you've been dealt and then remember that you're not the only one on this journey.  Everyone is on their own journey and sometimes theirs nudges yours in a different direction.  One that you don't want to take but know, for now, it has to be traveled.  You try not to be filled with anger and resentment.  Some days are easier than others.  Not being able to speak your mind or your peace is probably most difficult of all.  You know that things could be so different but, for now, there are no longer any expectations.  Instead, there is acceptance and sadness for what could have been.

Wishing you a beautiful Sunday ~ Wendy

Hey there sweetie, hope all is well with you these days. Sometimes the journey is a tough one but maybe there are things we are supposed to learn along the way.

And I'm wishing you a wonderful week to come.
