As I was looking over this goal, I remember @ the time I had just clicked “I want to do this” because I had the serenity prayer put up on a poster in my room and it seemed like a good goal to have on my list.
Anyhow, as I have grown/continue to grow, I realize that I have grown (serious word overuse lol) in accepting things I cannot change. Granted it’s not always an easy 1-2-3-Accept! but some days you realize more quickly, that worrying and wasting thoughts and energy on something you really have no control over is an absolute waste of your time and your missing out on some serious peace and weight off your back, shoulder, head, body! (wherever you carry it)...
These days I hand it over it God and let Him take care of it. You can’t buy peace! 19 months ago

Oh dear, there is too much I wish to change. To stand by and watch so many injustices gets to me. Of course, I cannot change the world, nor can I change how people are or think.
However, nothing is stopping me from trying to do the best I can to make a difference. I am one of those people that will never accept that I cannot do something- for, who is to say that I cannot? We all have our barriers, we just need to try and get over them. Your limits are only the points where you stop trying.Sometimes, a solution is right before your eyes; other times, you have to think outside the box.
Nothing in life is simple, it is all a challenge. One just needs to adopt the right out look on life to appreciate it.
Wisdom? Well, I have not quite figured out what that is yet. Who is truly wise? 2 years ago
The things I cannot change, the weather, natural disasters, the family I was born to. These are the things I cannot change.
Everything else seems to be up for grabs, although I do not want to change everything.
Things I would like to change – my financial situation, my weight, my attitude, my health, the world around me, ....
The list of changes could go on and on… The thing I have come to realize is, as corny as it sounds, the change really does start with me. So I pray for the courage to do something about it. And I am thankful that I have a place like 43Things to have the state the things I wnat to change first.
Here’s to all our goals, our little changes will make the world a better place! 2 years ago
I accept my limitations as it pertains to my goals on 43things. I accept the fact that I have been gone from here and that my “old friends” might have even forgotten me…
I have the courage to start again.
Thank you God for Wisdom today. 3 years ago
I’ve been having some trouble with the ‘wisdom’ part of this…
I CAN control my moods and be assertive about what’s going on in my relationship. But I’ve been too scared, sitting back and forgetting that these aren’t just things which have to ‘happen’ to me but that I DO have a voice.
Need to muster up some more of that ‘courage’ but change is so scary! 3 years ago
