ACCEPTANCE
by Charlotte Tall Mountain

In nature,
I am neither rich nor poor,
Neither old or young
Modern or old-fashioned
My vestments, appropriate
to the heat or cool
Are indifferent to her

She doesn’t care if I am
employed or idle
Whether I’ve paid my bills on time
Or if I will be the recipient
of a grand prize
I cannot impress her with my wit
But I feel she understands my pain
She offers me her bounty whether
I have earned her grace or not
So great is her wisdom
So huge her heart.

You Are Enough

Not good enough, not enough, never enough? We judge ourselves so harshly. In recovery and sobriety acceptance is vital. This poem by Charlotte Tall Mountain can help remind us that we are all lovable just as we are. We are loved unconditionally and that every moment is a chance to begin again. From the perspective of accepting ourselves we can begin again, over and over to make the choices that get us help, give us strength and let us shine our own light in the world. Then we are even capable of helping others who are in need. If you are struggling today with feelings of hopelessness, worthlessness, guilt, fear, shame or anything else that leaves you feeling alone, lonely and unloved, please remember that you are enough, just as you are in nature.
