My happiness grows in direct proportion to my acceptance, and in inverse proportion to my expectations. - Michael J. Fox.
Acceptance of what has happened is the first step to overcoming the consequences of any misfortune. – William James
Happiness can exist only in acceptance. – George Orwell
The Serenity Prayer
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.
