Thought for the Day

Acceptance is a needful thing . . . not just of you, but from you, too.

This thought came to me this morning, as I was thinking of grown-ups who have been wounded by the unacceptance of their parents or families, who then don't accept their children for who they are, by forcing them into sports or pushing them to be voracious readers or expecting them to pursue a certain line of work. I'm moving through my day being mindful of the expectations I set for others and where I can be more accepting.
