Accept and Adapt

It must have been two or three weeks ago when a clip of a TV program shown in UK got into my fb feed. First was the A&E (Accident & Emergency) Department and then the Ambulance service of NHS, also in UK. Between those two, there were other such clips related to that that I always come across my feed.

While I do admire the job of these medical personnel and how they deal with their patients with so much empathy, understanding and kindness, it shows how temporary life really is. One minute you are being treated and in the next you are being mourned by your loved ones.

The lucky ones are those who are still given second chances to live.

There is a guy in one of these episodes where he was rushed to the hospital because his condition was becoming worse which was brought about by his illness. I cannot remember the details but I think it has to do with the brain.

This guy was a successful one in his profession and in his personal life as well. Even when he was diagnosed with his illness and gradually worsened as an effect of that, he still continued to fight.

He and his wife had that motto: Accept and adapt.

I believe this kind of attitude and mindset should be adopted by everyone. Just because things don't go our way, we can't get what we want, then we should give up.

We should teach our kids early on how to better control their emotions and feelings.

While it is not bad to have achievers, it's not always about being number one. I think it's a toxic attitude to pressure your kids to best everyone else. Encourage and motivate them to do their best but not too much pressure that they break down. Find balance in everything.

Say you have been working in a certain field for a very long time, years and years, almost all your adult life. When the time comes that you can no longer do that, what then? The sooner we learn to accept our fate, then we can learn to adapt to it and find something else to do.

It's the same situation when we lose our loved ones. Of course we should give time to grieve for our losses, acceptance is the first step of moving on. It's not easy when part of us died. The reality is there's no such thing as forever.

Accept and adapt. Accept and adapt.

Make it your motto. Make it your mantra.

When I watched that episode, it made a lot of sense. Imagine yourself being a successful person whether in business or in your job. Suddenly you find yourself unable to do the things you usually can easily do, even simple daily activities. Understandably you will feel sorry and depressed. I would be too. However, we have to pick up ourselves sooner and later and accept then adapt. No one can help us more than ourselves.

Sharing this photo from my morning walk today. I hope you are having a wonderful start of your week.

The other day while walking I was wondering why my eyesight is limited to a very small certain range and got me thinking about my limitations hence I accepted and realized that I have to adapt to my limitations.

It is not easy to understand when one of your own dies. It takes a long time to overcome that bad time and it is very difficult to overcome this time. Your words are right. We need to develop a mindset of acceptance and adaptation.

That is correct and true. Some things we have no control over them.

What you mentioned is 100% true. Peoples here are educating their children for Engineers and Doctors, but forget to educate them psychologically when something befalls them all of a sudden. To accept and adapt things in life you need to be bold

I love this! For the scenario not loosing a loved one, there's no way we can do to bring them back no matter how hard we try, we just have to give in to grieve for some periods, accept the love and move on

We can get inspiring life lessons everywhere even from a TV show where many lives are represented. And that's a good motto, accept and adapt... but accept means to accept totally and openly and not with resignation as many people do, otherwise people become bitter. We need to accept the situation with a positive mood, understanding there is always a reason and then to find the best way to adapt ourselves in order to grow and evolve in our life with the less possible suffering, with more peace.

That's encouraging motto. Because there were always be unavoidable situation in our life which may come unexpectedly. And having this mindset will help us cope up.

This is so true, lalo na talaga sa work setting. Hindi lahat ng makikilala mo e parehas kayo ng paguugali o paniniwala so, we have to adjust and adapt para happy lahat hehe!

Accept and adapt is something we all need to do. I was side bar thinking of athletes. Some hang on too long and all it does is put there bodies at risk. Also some can't adapt when there careers are over. Either case they are not adapting or accepting. I actually praise athletes who hang it up early, how often do you hear of them in a bad light?
