None The Less

Learning New Tricks ….. None the Less.

Three simple words that put you in the driver’s seat of creating the life you deserve.People may not be loving or kind, but I am still loving and kind none the less. It takes us out of a CONDITIONAL victim mode, and instantaneously with a little grace, puts us in a proactive solution mindset.

It never ceases to amaze me, how we create a lot of “chaos” for ourselves, when we seem to resist the givens of the human condition: what we can control and what we can’t control. No Matter how much I try to wave my magic wizard’s wand I cant control weather or not someone will like me, change the colour of the sky, or resist the ebb and flow of life.

I can let worry and anxiety be my dance partner when I obsess about future future land. Its almost as if the more I worry, somehow in my mind equals a greater sense of control. The math makes sense to me. I can’t control the past whats done is done. No matter how many times I play it over in my mind and obsess about it, it still doesn’t change it.

 

 

In the recovery community we have the serenity prayer to remind us what we can control and what we cant. Grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change, courage to change the things, I can and the wisdom to know the difference. I cant change the weather, I cant change how people will respond to me , I am not responsible for how other people will feel, but what I am responsible for is my response and how I will feel. I am responsible for the effort and not the outcome. Even though, I need to check the expiration date of the serenity prayer from time to time I can still love and accept myself NONE THE LESS.
