Self-acceptance comes from meeting life's challenges vigorously. Don't numb yourself to your trials and difficulties, nor build mental walls to exclude pain from your life.

I accept the universe! (Quote by - Margaret Fuller)

In life, many thoughts are born in the course of a moment, an hour, a day. Some are dreams, some visions. Often, we are unable to distinguish between them. To some, they are the same; however, not all dreams are visions. Much energy is lost in fanciful dreams that never bear fruit. But visions are messages from the Great Spirit, each for a different purpose in life. Consequently, one person's vision may not be that of another. To have a vision, one must be prepared to receive it, and when it comes, to accept it. Thus when these inner urges become reality, only then can visions be fulfilled. The spiritual side of life knows everyone's heart and who to trust. How could a vision ever be given to someone to harbor if that person could not be trusted to carry it out. The message is simple: commitment precedes vision. (Quote by - High Eagle)

Imagination was given to us to compensate for what we are not; a sense of humor was provided to console us for what we are. (Quote by - Mack McGinnis)

To make oneself an object, to make oneself passive, is a very different thing from being a passive object. (Quote by - Simone de Beauvoir )

Nature never repeats herself, and the possibilities of one human soul will never be found in another. (Quote by - Elizabeth Cady Stanton)

The habit of saving is itself an education. It fosters every virtue, teaches self- denial, cultivates the sense of order, trains to forethought, and so broadens the mind. (Quote by - Thornton T. Munger)

Having once decided to achieve a certain task, achieve it at all costs of tedium and distaste. The gain in self confidence of having accomplished a tiresome labor is immense. (Quote by - Thomas A. Bennett)
