Acceptance

Kelina Orozco
Class of 2015

Life is full of uncontrollable factors and unpleasantries, and you can never fully enjoy life if you don't take the time to letgo of what you cannot control and accept a situation as given. You may be able to change your situation on occasion, but you must first accept that it needs change. Recently, I have begun to embrace this philosophy of acceptance, and admit that originally it is not easy, but when you accept things that you have no influence over your worry and stress decrease exponentially. I use to sweat the small stuff and stress over things I could not control and at times I still do but then Ir emember to accept the circumstances and move on.
