It has been so helpful to recognize I have a choice every moment.
Not about what is happening right now, but about my relationship to it.
My 3 choices are:
If I resist, I create struggle in me and around me.
In acceptance, I become neutral, but neutrality is a form of death.
In approval, I decide to lean in to what is happening.
I get behind it.
This is when the magic happens.
Approval is a powerful life practice available to you every moment.
I use the word practice to indicate it takes practice and you are never done getting better at it.
Try it right now, take something you are resisting either inside or outside you and get in approval of it, get behind it, get into it and see what happens. Let me know.
