It’s About Perspective

Do yourself a favor and let love in. Nothing ever gets accomplished through blame and anger. The best things in life develop from understanding and patience. The ability to finding state of peace  is part of  letting go and acknowledging someone else’s viewpoints as clear as your own. The first passage of Reinhold Niebuhr’s “Serenity Prayer” is humble in its approach. “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and wisdom to know the difference.”

“Things don’t happen to me. I happen to things!” – Winston Churchill, was the Prime Minister of the UK.

“It isn’t the things that are happening to us that cause us to suffer, it’s what we say to ourselves about the things that are happening.”

“The truth you believe and cling to makes you unavailable to hear anything new.” – Pema Chodron, is a Buddhist nun and best-selling author.

“All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find with another, and regardless of how much you blame him, it will not change you. The only thing blame does is to keep the focus off you when you are looking for external reasons to explain your unhappiness or frustration. You may succeed in making another feel guilty about something by blaming him, but you won’t succeed in changing whatever it is about you that is making you unhappy.” – Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, is a best-selling author and motivational speaker.
