Life Rule #4

Life Rule #4: Acceptance. Acceptance of everything, not just people, or situations. Accept that sometimes, the shit is gonna hit the fan. Accept that people will not always like you. Accept that you may lose your job, your lady, or your friends. Accept that not everyone likes the same shit as you, and accept that people may look down upon you for what you do, who you are, or what you look like. Accept that you will be judged and that you will judge other people, even if it's subliminally. Accept yourself, and who you are, and if you don't like it, change it. Accept the way life throws its curveballs in your direction. Accept that sometimes projects will forever remain unfinished. Accept that accidents happen, and injuries do too. Accept responsibility for yourself and what you do. Accept the goals you set for yourself and make them happen. This really can go on forever in a thousand different ways. The rule is simple. You can apply it to virtually anything.


  1. Yes you can definitely apply it to pretty much everything. I think acceptance is the key to a happy life. What's that old saying? Life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we react towards it.

    1. The key to a happy life. Yes, certainly one of the keys!

  2. Somebody once said, "The #1 cause of pain and suffering is failure to accept what is." Very true. You have to accept that a condition is what it is before you can change it. If it isn't changeable then you can move on.


Would love to hear what you are thinking. Leave a comment!
