I Accept

That my financial ruin is due to previous activity in this life or a previous one.
I accept that I might have been the first person to say "Person, bring me more gold. Tax the little people."
I accept that my illness is due to this life or a previous one where I judged by thinking that I am strong and nothing will ever keep me from living and working exactly as I pleased. I accept that my dependence on others is because in this lifetime or in any other, I swore that I would never be dependent on anyone or anything but myself.
I accept that my overweight problem is because in this lifetime, definetely in this lifetime and in any other previous lives I have 'sworn' thereby making a big judgment, that I would never let myself go and become fat.
I accept that I am broken because in this lifetime and previous lives I proudly stood tall and swore nothing would ever break me.
I accept that I am the sum total of all my thoughts and actions from past and present lives.
I Accept.
Doesn't mean I have to like it!

Brian Miller said...

interesting stream of thought...i wonder blaming a previous life, its still me right?

Lorraine said...

Thanks Dev, had no choice that is my lot for this life ;)
and thank you for tha wonderful connection comment !

Namaki, je suis bien contente et étonnée que j'ai pu lol me too that was my number 1, and I had to swallow it...ah pride it's a killer!

You can't 'blame' a previous life, because you still did it, but it's always you in each life, and 'they' say that we are all the total sum of our lives (now and previous), the way you are today is entirely due to YOU, and wow man, you are a wonderful, smart, kind-hearted, loving...man you're learned a lot lol

_When I sail into a windless sea and sense 'no direction of progress'... I condemn myself for my opinions, my looks, my failures, my and ineptitudes(s). I go to the mall!
_Oh... not to buy, I simply walk and look, and deeply listen, and "Novelize." As I watch this throng of both loosers and winners, I realize I am among the average; I am not superior... nor am I what I THOUGHT I was!
_I sail away on a freshened breeze.

Accepting is a big hurdle. Not only yourself and who and what your limits are but other people and their whole ball of wax.

maybe life comes a little easier once we get to that spot...I sure hope so.

Keep fighting Lorraine...

Kathy said...

I hate to think what I must have done...I know I must have broken the heart of someone who really loved and trusted me...at least once! And I, too, must have declared that I would never let myself "go". But I must have made a lot of progress in my last life cause I got the best parents, a loving environment in which to grow up, and good people who surround me. I wonder what's next.

As for you...if you aren't surrounded by beauty, you at least go out and find it and share it with us. Precious gift!

Inside our hands, outside our hearts said...

I don't think you HAVE to like it. But just "accept it", as you have. Life is many things from here and there that just become blankets of things we either don't want to see or think we don't need to see.

I'd say, just smile and be glad you can. The rest is what it is. Life.

I like the feeling I get from "by the sway of the wind."

Your acceptance of the lessons that life is teaching you gives me the sense that you feel strong enough to learn from them. Good for you.

Lorraine said...

Oh How I wish lol Thanks Arlene, mostly I feel stupid that the one that bothers me the most is my weight gain, shame on me lol

T.Migratorius said...

Wow! very brave and thought provoking. I can relate to your words here.

Lorraine, your creativity is a beautiful expression of who you are now! You've done a lot more that is right than you may think!

Lorraine said...

What a nice thing to say Robin, thanks very much x

firebird said...

Lorraine my dear--the scariest thing is to stop looking back and to start loving yourself the way you ARE! Things start falling into place when you do that.
And when I look at your profile photo, I see the same person as in the photo with your son. The same richness of spirit! And the same beauty.

Lorraine said...

You have such a beautiful heart sweet fire...I've missed you x

The Dark Lord said...

As we do, so shall we reap...! All right, but arent we being a bit too harsh on ourselves, here?!!

Lorraine said...

thanks TDL, but I deserve it! shit! lol

The Dark Lord said...

You have such a beautiful heart and mind.. i'm sure you deserve the very best that life has in offer...
