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.
I think it's FANTASTIC that I've reached an age I can finally be wise and sage and mellow; it's great to be at the point in my life where I understand just what matters in life.
The prayer above has given me some very good guidelines to live by
The serenity to accept the things we cannot change
Courage to change the things we can and wisdom to know the difference.
Wisdom, resilience and perspective are often cited as the hard-won prizes of aging. But growing old itself is an accomplishment.
It’s been discovered that attitude has an enormous role in how we age. I think graceful aging means finding a balance between acceptance of the inevitability of aging and doing what we can to remain vital and healthy as long as possible
Aging gracefully is embracing life with all that you have and loving it. The truth of the matter is that as long as we're breathing we're going to age.
I am enjoying life now and embracing the inevitable with a big smile and open arms because aging gracefully is a choice. For me now is the time I can fully feel comfortable with myself.
Let's face it, getting old is tough enough. Pretending we're something we're not makes aging even harder. By the time you reach my age we all hope that we've found the wisdom to know who we truly are.
It's important to have a twinkle in your wrinkle
No matter what our age is the Serenity Prayer is one we all can try to live by.
Have a fantastic Friday everyone!
