morning glory...

Accept everything that arises. Accept your feelings, even the ones you wish you did not have. Accept your experiences, even the ones you hate.
Don't condemn yourself for having human flaws and failings.
Learn to see all the phenomena in the mind as being perfectly natural and understandable.
Try to exercise a disinterested acceptance at all times
with respect to everything you experience.
--Bhante Henepola Gunaratana

Acceptance appears easy, but it is not.
True acceptance gives us freedom from suffering.
Only when you accept your feelings
can you begin to transform them.
--Susan Santucci

Our greatest glory is not in never failing,
but in rising every time we fall.
