Acceptance

Would you look at a horse and wish that it could fly like an eagle? Or would you ever look at a seal and wish that it could run like a cheetah? I bet that no one in his or her right mind would wish one creature to do what another does best. When watching any animal we appreciate it for what it is and what it can do. It would be crazy to think otherwise but why then do we often wish people in our lives to do what they are not good at and wanting them to be someone who they are not?

The difference between humans and god’s creatures is that we are capable of changing who we are and therefore becoming better at what we are not. However, any of this change can only come from the individual. While it does not hurt to encourage people to change their circle of behaviors our attention and our challenge each day should focus on this:

Accept that everybody like earth’s creatures is different and each having their own role in life. Accept the people in our life for who they are and recognize what they are good at. If we think about people this way we will ultimately get more enjoyment out of life.
