Welcome to A To Z On Mindfulness For Newbies
The first letter to be explored in A To Z on Mindfulness For Newbies is A. A is for Acceptance.
Acceptance is the key instrument to practicing mindfulness in your daily life. It plays a very important role in living a peaceful life.It simply washes all our worries and pain. Life is simple and accepting it makes it beautiful.
Acceptance means perceiving your experience, feelings, pain, relationships, life and simply acknowledging it rather than judging it as good or bad.
Acceptance is the key to be truly free.
I was in regret and pain regarding my poor eyesight. And I got off that guilt only when I realized that nothing is in my hands, and only one thing I can do is to accept the reality. Once I learned the power of acceptance, everything in my life changed. Acceptance made me realize “I’m Enough”.
3 Simple Ways To Practice Acceptance
- Sit in a comfortable posture. Take a deep breath. Picture your life. Mentally list down the things that are out of your control. Gently accept them without any judgment. Repeat this every day.
- Accept yourself – your emotions, your feelings, your pain, your weakness, your limitations as they. Just be aware of them and embrace them. Practice Self Acceptance.
- Identify the relationships that are difficult to handle. Practice loving kindness meditation for them. Accept them and love them as they are.

Hey Vasantha.. thankyou for this post. It is actually telling me something which I need to hear now.
Thanks dear !!!
What a wonderful take on the term Acceptance which we all think we know everything about. You are right – when we are frustrated we need to ask ourselves the question; can we change reality this second? That immediately brings us to the realization that the best way to handle crisis is to first accept reality and then act to change it. Great post.

Thank you so much. Glad you liked the post!!!
Great post . I have written on Acceptance, themed at women@40. Do give a read if u have time.
Thanks. Will do.
Acceptance is key to living a wholesome life. But this one quality is what the world needs the most. A post such as yours stresses on the importance of this one human quality that is required in abundance.
Thanks, dear Ramya !!!
Acceptance is truly the key and you’ve explained it so beautifully. Great post, ViVi!
Thank you so much, Mayu!!!
Acceptance is what my first post spoke about too. But, of course while my post talks about accepting other as they are, Your post bangs on a different aspect of the same coin- to accept yourself first. Only then can we accept other as they are. ACceptance is something we all need to give some thought. 🙂
You are right dear. Acceptance changes our life a lot for good.
For me acceptance is accepting my past. There are things I deeply regret but I have to accept that I cannot change them, I can only ensure that I don’t end up in those same situations again. Only after I was able to accept this,I was able to change myself as a person and move on. I will be following this series on Mindfulness. All the best!
Thanks a lot !!!
Such a positive post, this one! Thank you for choosing this theme, Vasantha. I would really benefit from it. Happy A to Z 🙂

Thanks, dear !!!
Beautiful and insightful. Loved it Vasantha. Acceptance is a key to living without regrets. Will be coming back for more. Do let me know your thoughts on my blog
Thanks, Sonia !!!
Thank you, Vasantha, for this wonderful, motivating post! Acceptance is the key to happiness and peace, no doubt, but it’s as difficult as it can be! I know I need to work on accepting – not just myself but others as well, as they are. It’s what my mother keeps repeating always – accept life as it is, accept people as they are.
Thanks a lot, Shilpa !!!
Wow this is so beautiful. Acceptance is the beginning to so many good things.
I am not there completely but there are certain things I’ve accepted about myself and it had helped me become a better person for sure 🙂
What a beautiful reminder. Thank you for this brilliant word, that all of humanity needs to keep in mind, to manage through the day to day challenges of life. It spoke volumes to me too.
Looking forward to your future posts.
Hi, Vasantha, enjoyed your explanation about Acceptance. Last year, I took the same word for the letter A. I also believe the acceptance makes our life easy whereas judgment only gives us tiredness.
Thanks dear, Sayanti !!!
Good start to the series Vasantha. Acceptance truly is the basis for so much in life. Looking forward to reading the rest of your posts. #A2ZChallenge
Thanks, Neha !!!
This is such a positive post Vasantha, I am glad to see we both have picked up same words to begin our #A2ZChallenge with – Acceptance, though in little different contexts. Looking ahead to read more on mindfulness from you 🙂
Glad you liked the post, Dipika !!!
I have to admit that I am terrible at acceptance. It is part of my nature to rebel against things, so I often react quickly. I always find myself wondering how people can simple “let it go.” What is the trick? Do you just have to not think about it at all? I will give acceptance a try today and see how it goes. Looking forward to reading more of your posts during the Challenge. Happy A to Z’ing!
Nice! Will try.
Acceptance is indeed key to being happy. Once you accept yourself an dthe circumstances, you can think rationally and can overcome difficulties and life challenges easily. Mindfulness should be practiced. Thanks for this guide to mindfulness.
Acceptance does avert a lot of storms that otherwise seem inevitable and opens up new paths indeed. The post is quite powerful 🙂

Amazing blog. My first blog is about: The Power of Simple change – Attitude. My blog is 1 week old. Please visit when you get time. https://www.silkenscribblings.com/blog/atozchallenge-attitude
I’m happy to say that I have learnt acceptance in life. Learning to accept life and its struggles, learning to accept that we cannot get along with everyone and its ok and learning to acknowledge and appreciate that whatever we have is more than what most people don’t have.
You are right Varsh !!!
Well said. Acceptance is the key to happiness and peace of mind. The more you know who you are, and what you want, the less you let things upset you and that’s wonderful for your well being!
Thanks, Shilpa !!!
Acceptance is one of the key things in life. Without it, nothing can move forward.
You have explained this beautifully, Vasantha.
Looking forward to the rest of your posts.
Thanks, Soumya !!!
Thanks a lot for such theme. I am going to read each one. I never thought in that way!!
I so agree. in my darkest times ive found that acceptance helps me immensely. Mere acknowledgment is enough sometimes to alleviate pain.
Thanks, Tara !!!
This is such a great theme dear, and you had written this post so wonderfully, agreed we sometimes had no option except accept the things how they are. best luck for challenge and need your best wishes too, as it is my first. hoping now, you are in better health.
Yes, dear. Thanks.
i just stopping by from the challenge and I really like your theme. I’m eager to learn more about mindfulness so I’ll be back throughout the challenge. I can see that acceptance plays a major role in living a simple, happy life, free of judgment. We have to know when it is appropriate to accept something as it is and when to use our strength to fight for something more because we deserve more. The key is having the knowledge, wisdom and foresight to know when to accept and when to push for more, in my opinion. Thanks for sharing . I’ll be back to learn more.

Acceptance is the key to be really free..so beautiful and deep. Wonderful post to calm someone down.
Thanks for appreciation !!!
So very true, and an excellent plan of action for us all. thank you! Do our brains deteriorate automatically as we age?
Thank you so much.
Rightly and eloquently stated, acceptance is so important and solves so many unnecessary worries and tensions. Love the way you have made this post with practical tips, hope to connect with you for this months challenge, thanks for sharing:)
Thank you so much!!!
Acceptance and self acceptance is the key for a better day – need to inculcate this soon. A nice post, Vasantha.
Loved reading this. I have been through a phase of self-denial. Self-acceptance has made me a far better person.
Thanks and stay blessed.
Acceptance is one of the hardest things to do. We don’t want to accept our follies and our weaknesses. But what we don’t realise is that Acceptance is the path to mental peace. Thank you for this lovely post!
Glad you liked the post.
