Serenity prayer

Friday, February 01, 2019

My favorite inspirational quote is the serenity prayer. God 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. Up this morning about to start fretting over something, and my old self is an emotional eater. This healthy lifestyle journey is much more than physical. I am convinced that it is emotional and spiritual. I choose not to fall off the bandwagon because I have knowledge of this now. I need to take care of my emotional self, my spiritual self, as well as my physical self. Truth of the matter is there will be things that happen in this life good and bad that I have absolutely no control over. The new me accepts this. Realizes that if I can’t control it or change it I accept it and focus on what I can do. That doesn’t mean I have to like it just accept that this is life and in some situations I have to let go, and allow myself to choose PEACE. Ok headed to the gym now because whether I fret or not it is what it is , and I may as well be well. 💕💪🏽

    I like this one, too:

    "God, grant me the serenity to stop beating myself up for not doing things perfectly, the courage to forgive myself because I am working on getting better, and the wisdom to know that you already love me the way I am... and that I may have the faith and confidence to love myself as you do."

    Have a great day!
