Refusing to dwell on things beyond my control allows me to move on. I practice acceptance, so I can grow.
Hardship and losses are a natural part of life. Even when I am sad and disappointed, I can find something in any situation that I can use to my benefit. I treat myself with compassion and take constructive action.
I put things in perspective. Most conditions are temporary. If I experience a reversal now, I may have a happy surprise later. When I think about the challenges I have overcome in the past, I build my confidence for dealing with my current issues.
I search for solutions. I focus on what I can do to enhance my situation. I change my attitude. I look on the bright side and count my blessings.
I remember that struggling can make me stronger.
Today, I accept the truth even when it is difficult. Facing facts instead of fighting them helps me to become more peaceful and productive.
