You may have heard, “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; the courage to change the things I can; and the wisdom to know the difference.” This famous AA quote has touched many lives. It goes right to the heart of the matter with stunning clarity. It not only addresses the necessity for courage and the ability to make wise distinctions in life, but it addresses the need for acceptance. Here is a little process you might try: When you are challenged by a problem ask yourself if you have done whatever you can to resolve the problem. If the answer is “Yes” then let go of worry and complaint. Ask yourself to release attachment to the problem and accept the situation. This will bring you peace of mind and allow you to move forward. If you think you can’t get a wise and clear perspective on the problem then ask for inner guidance. Give yourself some time to reflect and allow your subconscious mind to try to solve the problem. Always know this: For all of life’s challenges and troubles there is resolution. Even death offers the promise of something wonderful. Knowing this can help you relax and move through life with joy and peace in your heart.
