Dealing with and Being Empowered by the Things We Can Not Change Video Presentation

Posted by Second Chance to Live on September 29, 2014

Hello and welcome back to Second  Chance to Live my friend. I am happy to have you around my table. Several days ago I wrote an article, Dealing with and Being Empowered by the Things We Can Not Change. Today, I would like to share the article with you in video format. I create video presentations of my articles to offer the information to individuals who learn more effectively through watching and listening. To introduce the article, I will include an excerpt;

“I have been thinking about the topic of acceptance with action. I like the quote, by Mary Engelbreit; ”If you do not like some thing change it. If you can not change it, change the way you think about it.” By considering this quote I am reminded that I have choices in life. I am not a victim. I am empowered by what occurs in my life. I am given the opportunity to consider the possibilities in what is, regardless of whether I may like it or not. Consequently, I no longer have to feel isolated or defeated by what I may not like, as I live my life.

With this realization, I am given hope to live my life without delay.

Because I have the power of choice, I can look for alternatives to what I may not like or can not change. If no alternative or possibility exists, I can choose to look for the opportunity to learn from what I may not like or can not change. I can look to salvage any circumstance or situation. With  my determination, I can be empowered by what I do not like or can not change. With  this realization, I no longer need to feel victimized by whatever may become part of my life and experience. With my choice, I no longer have to buy into the notion that life is being done to me, but instead done for me. With this awareness, I can choose to be encouraged by hope.”
