Today I am grateful for an “It is what it is” mentality.
This attitude wasn’t always mine…
I used to worry
Now I am not concerned
about things I cannot change.
I have realized that there are very few things that I can change.
Those things I can have nothing to do with anyone’s orbit except my own.
I cannot change-
the state of the world,
the actions (or inaction) of others,
what people think of me.
I also cannot change others –
nor would I ask them to change.
If I cannot accept someone as they are, they are not for me.
I can change-
myself, well, working on it…
the thoughts I allow to enter my head,
the people I allow in my orbit,
the food I eat,
what I read,
what I watch,
living from a place of gratitude,
deleting everything that
does not contribute to peace.
If I catch myself worrying,
I consciously let the thought
drift away so it will no longer
I will never allow another
human being to control me,
for I finally love myself enough
to ever allow that to happen again.
I am worthy.
I am a badass.
peace over pain,
love over hurt,
acceptance for who I am
at this moment.
I will not accept less than
I am willing to give.
