Lack, limitation and restriction, whether real or imagined are all forms of suffering that can be eliminated through awareness, acceptance, acknowledgement and action - Iyanla

How many times has our thinking got us in trouble? Think about it?

There are times that we think ourselves into a sticky situation because of fear and worry

Our thoughts are so powerful, it is the precursor of things to come, it really is true, change your mind, change your life.

There are so many situtations of people who have been in situations, unbelivable situations, Nelson Mnadela in jail, as one example, where he remained focused on what he wanted rather than what he did not want. Focusing on the wants puts us in a mindset to move forward, to meet the challenges knowing that the obstacles are part of the journey.


Acceptance brings us to the realisation that our thoughts may be all over the place, at the same time, owning it is the way we can change or even transcend it.

When we deny, there can be no change. Acceptance does not mean that we like the situation, it merely shows us that it exists and taking responsibility for it can make the difference in turning it around.

Starting with acceptance can empower us to move.
