The Serenity Prayer is one that everyone should live by. It not only says everything worth saying, it puts life into perspective in the 10 seconds it takes to read the prayer. To freshen your memory, the prayer reads, “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.” As a whole, women spend too much time trying to make changes they can’t, not making changes they should, and not knowing the big difference between the two.
Learn to Accept
There are just some things you cannot change. For example, if you’re one of six kids, there is no way you can change that to become an only child. However, you can learn to accept the fact that you’re never going to be one, and learn to embrace the benefits that come with being an only child. Once you accept that this is your life and you can’t change it, you’ll be much happier and much more likely to figure out what it is about your life that’s actually pretty cool.
Gather Your Courage
The good thing about life is that most things can be changed. You may not be able to make yourself an only child, but you can find the courage to make changes that need making. If you hate your job and really want to start your own business, you just need to find the courage. You need to make a plan, figure out your finances, and do you research. The more you learn, the more courage you will have.
Knowing the difference between making changes you can and not being able to change certain things is a big deal. You can’t spend your entire life trying to change your bank account for the better as a teacher. You have to be wise enough to know that nothing you do is going to make you rich if you keep on teaching. However, you can use your wisdom to figure out a plan of action to use your teaching to further your education and start a career that will make you rich.
