No matter the undesirable situation you find yourself in, you always (and only) have three actionable options: change it, accept it, or abandon it. As in the enlightened St. Frances prayer, the wisdom is in knowing the difference.
The practice responsible for the better part of our misery is sitting around wishing and hoping that things would change. Everyone needs to vent sometimes, but before complaining too much, and in place of wishing, ask yourself which option you’ve chosen.
One thought on “There are ONLY three options”
I love this. Very fitting for current state of our nation as well.
