Happiness tip: accept the present as it is

Ok, maybe it’s not perfect, but it is your reality for now.  But in all probability it will not be your reality forever.  As the immortal saying goes, this too will pass.

However, there is an important universal law to observe which simply states "that which you resist persists".  It’s a derivative of the Law of Attraction which in its simplest form is about your experiences in your life reflecting the energy you put out into the world.  That energy comes from your thoughts, and most especially your feelings.

If your energy is focused on struggling with a situation in your life, you will continue to attract that struggle.  Resisting your present circumstances in your life usually sets up a mindset of worry about your future, and places stress on your mental, physical, emotional and spiritual well-being in the present.  It reduces the capacity of your inner resources to deal with the situation in a creative, constructive manner.  The more depleted your inner resources are the more difficult it will be for you to cope with the situation, find solutions and move beyond it.

When you accept that this is the reality you have to deal with for now, you free up your energy and your inner strength to move through the situation rather than getting stuck in it.  Acceptance does not mean denying or ignoring the circumstance.  It means acknowledging the full truth about what is going on for you right now, what the gap is between where you are now and where you want to be, and what needs to happen in order for you to move in that direction.  Acceptance empowers you to move forward.  Resistance keeps you stuck where you are.
