Serenity Prayer

I choose to accept life and respond with love.
I choose to change what I am able to change easily.
I choose to be wise and flexible in my choices.
I easily adapt to changing circumstances with patience and grace.

Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity 
to accept the things I cannot change; 
courage to change the things I can; 
and wisdom to know the difference. 
(and the wisdom to see choices where I thought there were none.)

It is not necessary to believe in “God” to believe!
It is helpful to believe in Goodness, in Love, in Higher Power.
Whether you believe in Nature, in Energy, in Prana, in Chi……
It all can work for you to seek for patience, courage and wisdom.

The most flexible person usually succeeds.
Those who are creative and adaptable keep trying new options.
Those who persist and never quit, always get what they seek.
Seek what is good for all and everyone will benefits from your success.

When you ask, ask for the good of all.
When you understand everyone must benefit, you will let go of selfish ways.
When you correct your choices, you will respond with flexibility and acceptance.
When you let go of what does not work for others, you will know gratitude and peace.

Step away from difficult people and situations, until you find peace and clarity.
Step away from unhealthy choices and issues, until you can focus and commit to what is good.
Step away to release and forgive all temptation to react or choose unwisely.
Step away to remember what is beneficial and responsible.

Respect yourself in choosing responsibly.
Trust yourself in listening for the highest Good within you.
Love yourself enough to respond to all situations in the most healthy way.
Appreciate yourself for choosing to be patient, courageous and wise.

When we recognize the power of choice, we feel capable of affirming our good works.
When we use the power of choice responsibly, we have a life that works.
When we make a mistake, we can quickly and easily forgive our incorrect choices.
When we realize we can forgive, we simply choose again for what is best for all.

Today I choose what is best for me and for al l concerned.
Today I accept what is Good for all and forgive the rest with gratitude.
Today I am grateful I have the wisdom to know the difference.
Blessings of gratitude,
