Accept Quilt Block — Live Well Live Strong Quilt

 “A man cannot be comfortable without his own approval.” –Mark Twain

How can Accept spark joy in your life?  Let’s talk about it!

Accept Ourselves - Women's Health Live Well Live Strong Quilt

Acceptance is something that we all have sought after at some point in our lives. For some of us it has been a constant battle for years. It doesn’t need to be though! We don’t need to seek the acceptance of others or our peers, all we need to do is accept OURSELVES! If we accept ourselves then the world will soon follow, and accept us for who we truly are, not some person we became just to please them.


“Accept – then act. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it.” – Eckhart Tolle

Accept then Meet It with Courage Live Well Live Strong Quilt

Sometimes we are faced with great challenges in life, whether they be financial, physical, or emotional. For some of us these challenges can cause us to shut down. These situations can be tough, and while we may want to pretend they aren’t happening to us, we cannot deal with the situation until we ACCEPT the situation! If we act before we accept, we can do damage to relationships, finances, and even our bodies.

 “The art of acceptance is the art of making someone who has just done you a small favor wish that he might have done you a greater one.” –Martin Luther King, Jr.

Accept Others - Women's Modern Health - Live Well Live Strong Quilt

Acceptance is not only about us though, others seek acceptance just as we do! It is not our place to judge another person, and we should accept others as they are! It feels awful when we are not accepted, and why would we wish that feeling on somebody else, especially if they are our loved ones!

There are many Accept Activities that you can do.  On the worksheet below, I’m introducing you a couple of my favorites.


Download your Accept Worksheets below and work through the exercises as you focus on making your Accept Quilt Block this next week!

 “Acceptance doesn’t mean resignation; it means understanding that something is what it is and that there’s got to be a way through it.” -Michael J. Fox

Accepting things is one of the hardest things we must do in our lives, if not the hardest. But it is only hard because we make it hard. Acceptance is something that we control, and nobody can take it away from us. WE choose how we feel about where we are. Acceptance is the most important thing for us to do in our lives, because when we accept we can start to change.

Accept We Need to Be the Change Live Well Live Strong Quilt


“Every woman that finally figured out her worth, has picked up her suitcases of pride and boarded a flight to freedom, which landed in the valley of change.” -Shannon L. Alder

Accept life's circumstance to move on to a healthy life. - Live Well Live Strong Quilt

Positive Accept Challenges could include:

  1. Don’t be discouraged by your circumstances
  2. Don’t be judgmental of others
  3. Don’t be judgmental of YOURSELF
  4. Work with what you have to make something better
  5. Remember that you won’t always feel accepted, and that is OKAY!

There are times when we feel marginalized. These situations are times when we need to accept that we need to change and stand up for ourselves, rather than accept how things are now. Accepting the reality of how we feel and actually acting upon it, rather than sitting idly by. Accepting that you don’t accept a situation is just another way of accepting! The power comes when we act! A conditional acceptance when we accept a situation that we know we need to change and act on.

Or customize your own personal challenge.  Let’s not overwhelm ourselves.  Take tiny steps towards a good thing and reward yourself with a quiet moment closing your eyes to feel good about yourself including your body & mind.

Industry Quilt Block — Live Well Live Strong Quilt

Women with Industry Live Well Live Strong Quilt 26 quilt blocks about women's health & wellness


A person who knows their purpose – works differently bringing satisfaction.

Seasons of Life

Being productive can improve our health & wellness as women. It feels good to be doing something. I have a disabled adult son and if he has nothing to do and no purpose to his life then he feels very drab and negative cycles can creep in. Productivity will not only help us accomplish our goals and reach our potential, but it will allow us to feel that we have purpose and meaning in our day to day activities.

Seasons of Life Reevaluate our Values & Interests with the Modern Women's Live Well Live Strong Quilt

What are your values?

Life changes though with various seasons that we may face. For instance, a woman that becomes an empty nester may need to shift a focus on industry & purpose to be realigned with life circumstances. The value of children and family is still there but needs to be shifted to allow room for new values, interests & purposes. Someone with their children grown may want to take up a new hobby like quilting, to make a beautiful quilt for their grown children.

We are intelligent women but making these shifts can be tricky during life transitions. We are usually on auto pilot but this is a time to intentionally expand your reach and take a new look at values, interests and life’s purpose. Raising a child to launch is such a beautiful privilege to be proud of. With my special needs adult son, I won’t have that opportunity and I appreciate the ability to launch my other children even more. Everyone comes from an unique place and no perspective is right or wrong.

What are your values - LIve Well Live Strong Quilt

Download the Industry Worksheets and time some time to jot down your values and interests. Then let’s look at how to take those values and interests and turn them into purpose. We feel so good when we have multiple purposes that we can draw from for our productivity. It feels good to be doing things for our health & wellness. An example of an interest might include genealogy work which would build into a value & purpose. I’m sure all of you have an unique set of interests and values! I can’t wait to hear all about them! Download the Industry Worksheets for FREE below.

The Industry Quilt Block is the 10th week on our Live Well Live Strong Quilt Sew Along!  Remember you can join in on the sew along anytime or make the Live Well Live Strong Quilt at your own pace. The Live Well Live Strong Quilt is a modern fresh quilt that gives us an opportunity to pause and study different aspects of health & wellness. I support each week with a live video quilt block tutorial, blog post, email AND soon to launch now a PODCAST!

Beehive Industry Productivity Women's Health & Wellness a fresh modern quilt with 26 blocks about women's health & wellness.  Live Well Live Strong Quilt Sew Along

A beehive has always been a symbol of industry. The entire hive is always working together to achieve a goal. Each individual bee has a purpose and meaning in the hive, and that purpose allows them to focus on their task and do the best they can. Honeycomb is created and their work can be preserved for future needs. The same is true for us as women, as we are industrious and productive not only do we benefit now but we benefit into our future too. We develop reserves that we can tap into as needed. The reserves of industry may be savings, skills, memories, services and health.

There are many Industry Activities that you can do.  On the worksheet below, I’m introducing you a few of my favorites. Remember that industry includes our hobbies and interests too. It isn’t about just being busy, its about very productive & useful. We can also have a purpose through serving others.

Clarify your purpose. What is the why behind what you do? Your industry will unfold.

Our values are a compass to health & wellness as women.  Join the Live Well Live Strong

Sometimes we do not have a direction in life, and there isn’t a compass we can use to find one! Our values can be our metaphoric compass. By applying our values and interests there are so many benefits of industry. It seems absurd, but applying industry into our lives can reveal things about our purpose to us that we had no idea existed. Increasing in education and learning is definitely another form of industry. Serving our families, friends or community too.

Positive Industry Challenges could include:

  1. Start a new DIY project in your home.
  2. Complete a value worksheet & make a list of your interests.
  3. Take care of things you own or resources you have.
  4. For industry one day this week serve another.
  5. Learn something new.
  6. Serve others.
  7. Participate in a hobby or interest.

Or customize your own personal challenge.  Let’s not overwhelm ourselves.  Take tiny steps towards a good thing and reward yourself with a quiet moment closing your eyes to feel good about yourself including your body & mind.

Self Reliance Quilt Block — Live Well Live Strong Quilt



“What I must do, is all that concerns me, not what the people think.” 
― Ralph Waldo Emerson

How can Self reliance spark joy in your life?  Let’s talk about it!

Time is our greatest resource

Relying upon ourselves is a very liberating lifestyle. We are free to do more things, and free to do them when we want to! Self reliance creates a sense of self worth and accomplishment that lead to a fulfilling life!

Growing Tree with Wooden Stake

Sometimes we cant rely on ourselves and we need help, like a sapling that must be tied to a post so it doesn’t fall over. But once we have grown, we need to remove that post, or else it is just in the way of our growth.

We need to trust ourselves, We need to believe in ourselves! We are all capable of so much, but we sometimes forget it! We need to remember who we are and what we can do, and then get out there and do it!

“I listen with attention to the judgement of all men; but so far as I can remember, I have followed none but my own. ”  
-Michel de Montaigne


Nobody can do the things that YOU can do! We each need to be able to stand on our own from time to time. Help here and there is a good thing, but we should try not to be too dependent on anybody. If we become reliant on others then we may forget how to stand on our own entirely!

Avoid Traps from Self Reliance

“As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live.”
-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Positive Self Reliance Challenges could include:

  1. Create a budget
  2. Live within your means
  3. Start a rainy day fund
  4. Search for a better employment opportunity, or ask for a raise at you current job
  5. Start using a daily planner, either in a notebook or on your phone

Or customize your own personal challenge.  Let’s not overwhelm ourselves.  Take tiny steps towards a good thing and reward yourself with a quiet moment closing your eyes to feel good about yourself including your body & mind.
