Life is expectations and acceptance. We, are always aspiring to become or achieve a goal, few times we pull or push those we associate with to join or jump for reaching targets and ultimately to a goal. Success, fame, health ,happiness or wealth, we got our little dream worlds right from the time we remember..yes 🙂 a very long time from that point in life, we now are looking back and ahead too.
Few things are unacceptable, these tend to create tensions and rebellious attitude, we fight for what we think as our right and we hurt others in this war game. We, win and we lose..leaving our hurdles behind we aim higher and want to proceed faster. Are we chasing time and passing life ? Are we not defeating hearts and winning applause from unknown admirers. Are we popular on social website and an introvert in life ?
Marriage is one huge step in our life, where we “accept” the other as being our partner in all aspects of life. We are sharing from address to bills, name and blame . We are stick on with an invisible glue , clearly opposite yet magnetically attracted to faults, weaknesses and humor. It feels there is someone within a reach to punch and kiss, hug and miss, tease or please , yet remain indeed your’s faithfully.
But, before we accept another human being into our life, we must accept our self too..to accept ..we must know ..what we are..and what needs to be improved or created ..so that other can find it easy to accept us. Perfection is always easy to accept, because we can relax and feel at ease, imperfection is rather challenging..moods sway..you burst and swear…or flare..too many indicators..loudness and your mind can not focus what to say 😉
Close your eyes and see your spouse face . Is it angry or happy ? tired or energetic ? Then open your eyes and look at yourself..can you see those emotions in your eyes ? We, the intelligent specie on earth has a mind that is never fully utilized, yet we always think we are smarter than the other..why? Partly, because we self indulge or are egoistic..or thick head.
Acceptance is a huge umbrella, it covers more than the vows can ever list. It is a submission of self. A commitment to be able to accept all that may come, good or bad.
When we accept this challenge , then life’s achievements would be fun while we are on it’s journey, each failure would be accepted as each win would be celebrated. Eyes will speak, hands will caution and lips will remain sealed.
The song he is humming, you know which one and the mischievous teasing punch you have aimed just over his nose ..he knows with his eyes closed 🙂
You have learned to accept and there is no more to expect ..than an honest acceptance.
You from air and I from sea
waves are currents, and motion is clean
I make you cold, as you make me cool
I need air to breathe,
You need water to drink
We are different..Thank God!
Otherwise..I will suffocate and you will die of thirst.
I accept you..Do you ?
