Sometimes the anxiety just comes for me, the collision of my reality and the way I think it should be. It’s a mental train wreck that keeps me stuck. I cling to the dreams, the shoulds, the appearance of a gap...
Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: This article is short and sweet with a pow punch. The message... accept today as much as you can. If it is just as you wanted it to be or a piece of you know what! It is all somehow ok and perfect in its imperfection. The last sentence is great!

The way that I see it is that without self-acceptance your spiritual path is 'spiritual entertainment' at best. I mean you might as well watch a movie and just observe someone else going through a transformation. It's so true...

I’ve witnessed and been involved in situations where personal power is traded for acceptance and peace at any cost. Life coaching clients, family, friends and yours truly, can find ourselves in situations where we relinquish our personal power and over-empower others...
Editor's Note from Jodi Chapman: We have all been in situations where we have given away our power, and in this beautiful article, Shann Vander Leek reminds each of us to always speak our truth and honor ourselves.
Editor's Note from Diane Renz: My heart was touched when a client, who is integrating her full value and healing from continual objectification, shared this song with me to express her internal experience. We are all learning how to relate to ourselves with increasing kindness, in a culture which defines worth based on exterior measures, this video speaks to self-acceptance on a universal level, but also educates more specifically regarding our assumptions and judgments and values for inclusivity or exclusivity relative to race.

As I was rocking my baby to sleep for his nap this morning several hours earlier than his regular nap time, I remembered my first weeks with Everest and how uncertain I often felt as a new mother. As sleep has always been one of our most challenging areas (with both boys), I often consulted The Books to see if I could glean a new tip that would help me help my baby to learn how to sleep...

Most of us have areas in our lives where we’re tolerating things. And we get praised for that, right? We hear, “Suck it up! No pain, no gain! It could be worse!” But any time you’re tolerating something, it causes a slow, steady leak of your energy. It keeps you from being your brightest, best, most vital self.

Editor's Note from Erica Curtis: Move through the multiple faces of grief toward acceptance and healing through this montage of drawings set to original lyrics by the artist.
