Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. I am happy to have you around my table. Several days ago I wrote an article, Dealing with and Being Empowered by the Things We Can Not Change. Today, I would like to share the article with you in video format. I create video presentations of my articles to offer the information to individuals who learn more effectively through watching and listening. To introduce the article, I will include an excerpt;
“I have been thinking about the topic of acceptance with action. I like the quote, by Mary Engelbreit; ”If you do not like some thing change it. If you can not change it, change the way you think about it.” By considering this quote I am reminded that I have choices in life. I am not a victim. I am empowered by what occurs in my life. I am given the opportunity to consider the possibilities in what is, regardless of whether I may like it or not. Consequently, I no longer have to feel isolated or defeated by what I may not like, as I live my life.
With this realization, I am given hope to live my life without delay.
Because I have the power of choice, I can look for alternatives to what I may not like or can not change. If no alternative or possibility exists, I can choose to look for the opportunity to learn from what I may not like or can not change. I can look to salvage any circumstance or situation. With my determination, I can be empowered by what I do not like or can not change. With this realization, I no longer need to feel victimized by whatever may become part of my life and experience. With my choice, I no longer have to buy into the notion that life is being done to me, but instead done for me. With this awareness, I can choose to be encouraged by hope.”
