Control and power is what we would typically associate with strength and success. The thought of surrendering and allowing, especially when circumstances are not ideal, can make one feel weak and helpless.
But, if surrendering and allowance were weak emotions, then they wouldn’t be considered the LAST stage of the grieving process.
It’s the last stage because it’s the hardest. Because it requires the most strength.
Every stage before acceptance serves it’s purpose, too.
But, acceptance means you know this is hard,
and you’re ready for what’s ahead.
You’re ready to do the work of moving forward.
Of starting new.
From scratch, if necessary.
Whatever needs to be done.
And depending on the size of the project or circumstance (writing a novel, launching a business, etc.) , the creative process can be long-suffering.
Be prepared to move towards the strength found in acceptance – towards knowing it will be hard, and becoming ready to do whatever needs to be done.
