My serenity began when I got sober nearly ten years ago. In my sober recovery I was taught the difference between what I could control and what I couldn’t. I was guided to become a spiritual student and lean on a power greater than me. My spiritual path has been a daily routine of learning to rely on the love of the universe and release my faith in fear. One prayer that has guided me on this journey is the Acceptance Prayer from the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous:
And acceptance is the answer to all my problems today. When I am disturbed, it is because I find some person, place, thing or situation — some fact of my life — unacceptable to me, and I can find no serenity until I accept that person, place, thing or situation as being exactly the way it is supposed to be at this moment.
Nothing, absolutely nothing, happens in God’s world by mistake.
In this video I share a story about how I was recently humbled through the practice of acceptance and reminded of my true purpose. If you’re hung up in any area of your life I’m confident that my lesson in this video will teach you how to accept the things you cannot change.
This month on my Monthly Miracle Membership I dive deeper into this topic and share transformational tools for embracing acceptance into every area of your life. To help further guide you on the journey of acceptance, I also share my acceptance meditation. Get More Gabby here.
