Serenity explained

“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and the wisdom to know the difference.” – Reinhold Niebuhr.

I absolutely love this quote because it not only brings about an understanding about our lives and how we should try to handle things, but it also stresses the importance of us finding peace on the …

Accepting our limitations

We all have limitations, but not all of us will accept we have them. When we can come to accept our limitations (the areas that do not come naturally to us) we will learn to let go of our limitations and will begin to find and concentrate on our strengths instead.

In letting go of who we think we need to be, we allow ourselves to embrace who we truly are. When we can begin to accept, and understand our limitations without seeing those limitations as a sign …
