Gratitude List 07/05/2019: Acceptance AND Courage

Gratitude List 07/05/2019

Acceptance AND Courage.

More often than not, ‘accepting the things I cannot change’ goes hand in hand with having ‘the courage to change the things I can’. Rarely can I solely accept and take no action. Both acceptance and courage are as important and as beneficial as each other. Together they can work wonders.

Today I am grateful I can accept I am an addict, but I can also have the courage to serve, unite and recover.

Today I am grateful I can accept I am not perfect, but I can also have the courage to progress.

Today I am grateful I can accept my past, but I can also have the courage to face it and then use it to better my present.

Today I am grateful I can accept the actions and behaviours of others, but I can also have the courage to react in the right way.

Today I am grateful I can accept I am capable of resentment, but I can also have the courage to use the tools and forgive.

Today I am grateful I can accept my self-will can take control, but I can also have the courage to hand it back over again.

Today I am grateful I can accept my financial situation, but I can also have the courage to budget and be responsible with money.

Today I am grateful I can accept I make mistakes, but I can also have the courage to learn from them.

Today I am grateful I can accept I am capable of causing harm, but I can also have the courage to make amends.

Today I am grateful I can accept life on life’s terms, but I can also do my bit and be the best person possible to those around me.
