Accepting doesn’t mean we can’t respond or take action. In the case of a cancer diagnosis, while we can’t reverse the diagnosis, or we don’t have influence over the trajectory of the disease, we do have control over our own response.
In my humble opinion, it is accepting what is right there in that moment, not wishing how it should have been at that moment. Then again, responding from that stance. Accepting can mean acknowledging reality and then saying that this is not right for me, I choose to do something differently - instead of wishing the reality was different.
