Does your life have complications?
Check your ATTITUDE!

SIMPLIFY YOUR LIFE…

You deserve peace and serenity!

 

It is your life; you choose how you want it.  One of our human traits causes us to desire greatness; we search for what we think is happiness.  Many of us get so wrapped up in the big rat race of life that we miss the simple road to serenity, which after all is really the happy state we seek.  A serene state is impossible until we recognize we need humility.  We have grown comfortable in our skin and resist changes to our ways of approaching our life situations.  It usually takes big troubles and lots of disappointments to bring us to the realization that something needs to change.

It is this point in life’s journey that we miss the obvious, we need to change.

I can change myself…

Others I can only love!

Because of our experiences we have lulled ourselves into thinking we are powerful enough to change others.  Wow!  Have you really ever been successful at doing this, or have you or someone else fooled you?  Haven’t we always believed what we wanted to believe?  Now is the time to take a close look at the way you are.  What makes you tick, and why? 

The simple solution is to become humble and admit you are powerless over most things and all other people.  What business do you have anyway trying to live someone’s life?  Isn’t it hard enough to live your own?  The choice is yours.  You will find peace, joy, happiness, and serenity when you change yourself.  Take care of yourself.  Take control of your life; be brave enough to allow a power greater than yourself to take care of everything, even you.  Do your part and your part only.  A simple well known prayer will be useful…

 

The Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
Amen.


Reinhold Niebuhr
