COVID 19-Serenity, Acceptance and Courage

COVID 19-Serenity, Acceptance and Courage
These are interesting times we live in. Like it or not, we are barraged by a steady stream of information on Covid, and the virus affects every movement outside our 4 walls.
Not only that, but most of us are exposed daily to a barrage of nonsense from down south as they face a very interesting election. To me, it has been a circus!!
Last night.
, while watching the news. it was hammered home that the last 9 or 10 months has raised the anxiety levels and incidents of depression to an all time high. Psychological services are taxed well beyond capacity.
I am personally blessed to not feel particularly anxious or distressed, and try to do the best I can in my limited sphere of influence what I can to help others reduce stress and lift the cloud of depression.
For me, the secret lies within the words of the Serenity Prayer. The keys are SERENITY, ACCEPTANCE and COURAGE- all traits that can be aquired with your work and outside guidance.
Serenity is a state of mind that all seek. Some know exactly what it is, most have memories of it that have been taken by Covid and many others have never truly experienced it.
Acceptance of personal limits is very difficult for many people to grasp. Hard to believe that there is very little in our lives, try as we might, that are really within our control. You can control only you and your thoughts and actions, NOT other people, places or things.
For many (ever been called a control freak?), ACCEPTANCE of this fact is very, very difficult to grasp.
The bridge between SERENITY and ACCEPTANCE is COURAGE. you have it within, but often need outside help to locate it and put it to work.
I. like most people, am feeling Covid fatigue. I have the courage to accept this, I value my personal serenity very highly.
Getting to this point and dealing with life issues required reaching out then taking the actions needed to address the real issues that were identified in the process.
I regained a strong faith in a poer outside and greater than me (not religion) and have been blessed that I can face the worldaround me realistically and maintain a high level of peace of mind with very little anxiety or abnormal depression.
Serenity, Acceptance and COURAGE have given me an attitude of gratitude and the ability to brighten someone elses life on nearly a daily basis.
If you comprehend, then reach out!
