Accept Life Unconditionally


“I decided, very early on, just to accept life unconditionally; I never expected it to do anything special for me, yet I seemed to accomplish far more than I had ever hoped.

Most of the time it just happened to me without my ever seeking it.”

-Audrey Hepburn

I accept life unconditionally.

That phrase has been going through my mind for the past week since I read this quote on Gossip Gone Good.

I accept life unconditionally.

What does that mean to you?

For me, it’s letting go of judgment—that anything is either good or bad—and valuing every experience of life. It’s accepting where you are and not comparing yourself with anyone else. It’s letting go of resistance. It’s going with the flow. It’s allowing life to unfold instead of trying to control it. It’s appreciating All of life.

I accept life unconditionally.

What would be different about your life if that was your decision?

Often, people feel that by accepting a situation, you are just allowing the bad thing to persist; that without constant vigilance, the problem will just get worse and worse.

But the opposite is actually true.

“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”

-Albert Einstein

You must actually lift your eyes from the problem and turn and look for the solutions. When you are focused on the problem, all you see is more of the problem.

Think of it this way. Have you ever decided to buy a car, and all of a sudden every other car on the road was that car? Where did they all come from?

When you are focused on something, your subconscious mind brings more of that thing into your awareness.

So if you want to see more solutions, you have to be focused on solutions.

But the problem is often like the car wreck on the Interstate where it’s people looking at the wreck that causes the traffic jam, not the wreck itself. The problem creates intense emotion that’s hard to look away from.

Accepting life unconditionally is a way to begin to ease your attention from the problem so that you can then begin to see the solutions.

Accepting life unconditionally is allowing yourself to be where you are on your life journey, and recognizing that where you are isn’t static. Life is ever changing and each experience has value. And each experience is changing your perspective and Who you are. This gives you a new vantage point and opportunity to make new decisions.

If you have read through this blog, you now have new thoughts and reactions to add to your life experience.

This has forever changed you.

When you stop fighting against life and accept life unconditionally, you can more easily identify what’s working for you and what isn’t. You allow the forces and laws of the Universe to work on your behalf. You give God permission to answer your prayers and support you in getting where you want to go.

The end result is that you accomplish far more than you ever hoped. And most of the time, it just happens without your ever seeking it.

How valuable might it be for you to practice accepting life unconditionally? How does that change your ability to meet your goals?

Together we can do it!
