Tuesday Tidbit

I feel compelled to share today's reading from Anne Wilson Schaef's daily meditation book .

May 31

It is in the knowledge of the genuine conditions of our lives that we must draw our strength to live and our reasons for living. (Simone de Beauvoir)

What a beautiful expression of the profundity of acceptance in our lives! Sometimes we are so busy rushing around that we do not take the time simply to accept who we are and what we have. Paradoxically, it is in that full acceptance that our lives then move on.

Our lives do have meaning...just as they are. It is our illusions that rob us of meaning, not our reality. When I accept my reality, I claim my strength and reasons for living.

My Life is what it is. It may change, and right now it is what it is.


  1. I needed this today. Thank you.

  2. "It is what it is" used to be my Twitter "tagline". :)
