Acceptance and action are essential tools. Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; Courage to change the things I can, and the
Wisdom to know the difference. Acceptance does not live in a vacuum, it goes hand-in-hand with Action. . The Serenity Prayer is one of my most favorite and useful life tools. It is my Go-To strategy for managing almost any situation I find challenging. It guides me in deciding what I should accept and what I should not.
Life Tools. Source of Strength.
There is a power lodged within each of us. It’s a source of strength and courage, connecting each of us to an inner force and resolve we don’t realize we have. That inner strength is revealed, when we recognize we have choices.
We are not victims of our inheritance or our life experience, regardless of outward appearances. We have the ability to make right choices on our own behalf. What I also know is that not everything placed in my path is to be accepted. Again, the Serenity is MY Go-To tool. I accept ONLY those things I cannot change, BUT I am “willing” to change those things I can.
I am not a doormat, I am not a victim, I am not called to be servile and scraping. Instead, I am strong as I stand in the light of my power accept ONLY those things I cannot change, BUT accept ALL that I am called to change.
