"Acceptance is the answer to ALL my problems today."
Thus, starts off the text on a little card I carry around in my wallet. It is a genuine truth that has really improved my life.
Some folks argue that accepting everything, nothing gets fixed. Quite true, but what they are missing is that if is fixable, its not a problem. We just fix it. Frustrating problems are the things that we cannot readily fix. The message of the card is that if a bothersome thing cannot be fixed, we have two choices; be tormented, or accept it.
It's that simple.
