Whether we believe in a higher power or not, this mantra is powerful and effective if taken to heart and applied in our lives. There are of course aspects we simply cannot change about our lives or situations and by living in a state of rejection of those things, peace is elusive. With the things we can change, if we just complain and talk about how we wish we had the motivation or wherewithal to change them and then never take action, peace is elusive.

Reflection and thought give us insight into what’s possible and not which allows us to choose to accept one thing or another. A key to unlocking peace for ourselves lies in obtaining closure on what’s unchangeable and not regretting actions not taken in the past. The past is written, the future is not. Peace is waiting for you to reach out and accept.

    I’ve had the Serenity Prayer close to my heart or my desk for many years. In recent years, I think it’s frequently been superceded by “it is what it is”. Sometimes, that can be a position that’s been reached after a long battle and the knowledge that this is as good as it gets. However, that should never be our starting point. Rather, we need to look at what we can do to improve our lot and sure as hell ensure we don’t make things any worse. It might also be the case that we don’t need to live with the situation and there is a way out. We might just needs to be resourceful or stretch ourselves a little. Indeed, with many of us slouching, it might just mean stretching into our full height and not being afraid to walk in our own shoes. I’ve been struck down by three acute, life-threatening health and disability issues and have had to rebuild my life many times over. So, I’m well-versed in this and have also sought the wisdom through the ages to get me through.
    Best wishes,
    Rowena
