Early January there was a common theme to many a blog.  Bloggers would announce their '2013 word' and explain why they chose that word.

I am ready to share my word with you.

Yea, I know I'm kind of late to the party but we should all recognize by this point that I'm a marinater.  Ideas have to sit in my brain juices for a while before they are delicious enough for your consumption.

I chose "accept" as my word.  Or, "accept" chose me.

At first I didn't like my word because it seemed kind of martyr-ish.  Accepting everything to be my chosen fate, even if I don't like it.  Where is the fight in that?  It seemed very submissive.

I stuck with "accept" because how can I not like a word I was strongly drawn to?  And, why is it I would be drawn to a specific word and automatically think of the negatives, not the positives?

I have removed the negative charge out of the word and now define it as more going with the flow.  Not trying to take control or steer things.  Having faith that whatever is supposed to be, will be.  I like it.  It's a good way to live.

No more resistance.  Resistance takes effort.  Acceptance is easy, and natural.

I just always have an underlying fear that I will be taken advantage of.  I need to accept that I have trust issues and look at the real root of those issues, instead of projecting them onto everyone.  Seems vulnerable.  I accept that though ;)
