ACCEPTANCE - Face the reality of your situation

When something unwanted happens, it’s tempting to wish it weren’t true. But only when you acknowledge the reality of the situation can you begin to deal with it.

How quickly do you arrive at a place of acceptance when you face situations beyond your control? What helps you get to acceptance?
"Accepting does not necessarily mean 'liking,' 'enjoying,' or 'condoning.' I can accept what is—and be determined to evolve from there. It is not acceptance but denial that leaves me stuck." - Nathaniel Branden, American psychologist 
“Since we cannot change reality, let us change the eyes which see reality.” - Nikos Kazantzakis, Greek novelist  
“It is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.” - Carl Sagan, American astronomer 
“Men stumble over the truth from time to time, but most pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing happened.” - Winston Churchill, British prime minister
