Words I Live By

Words I Live By

Want to know a secret? This quote is written across my bathroom mirror in marker, so that I can wake up every morning and read it. I choose to use these words to begin every single one of my days because they serve as a reminder of faith, fragility, and acceptance.

These words give me hope. When I repeat them to myself, I remember the importance of personal responsibility and the importance of acceptance. 

We are only human. We cannot control every aspect of our lives: our pasts, presents, or futures. That's a scary fact to swallow. However, we are not powerless. Powerlessness and Fragility should never be mistaken for one another.

We are fragile because we are just tiny players in a VERY big game, called life. However, we are not powerless if we take responsibility for what we do, try our hardest, reach for the stars, and never give up.

 

"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"

It sends a message that I try to live by, every day. The message is that  it is a waste of time and energy to attempt to change people and things that are out of your control. However, in the face of circumstances you can change, show no fear.  You are here for a reason. Do not be afraid.
