‘Some days it’s just going to rain.’ My grandfather told me that when I was 17. He meant I shouldn’t worry about things beyond my control. Bill Vader, Saturday Night Live vet
It’s rainy season in southwest Florida which means a few hours of rain every day. In addition, a tropical storm is on the horizon for the weekend. “Some days it’s just going to rain.” It’s the essence of the 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.
Accepting what you can’t change is one of the most important aspects of living a joy-filled, peace-filled, less stress-filled life. It may take perseverance and experience to learn this life lesson but it will change your life for the better.
Affirmation: I accept the things I can’t change.
Coaching questions: What are you hanging on to that you can not change? How is that working out for you? What will you do to begin to accept the things you cannot change?
