My Free Gift To You, “Acceptance In The Time Of COVID-19”

The beginning of the year is an ideal time to form your intentions for letting go of control.   Such intentions are a simple, yet highly effective way in which to remove the urge to want to control people and things.   Here are a few intentions that I have found very effective:

I intend to:

“Listen attentively to others without offering advice”
“Allow others the consequences of their choices”

“Accept life as it is and focus on what it is within my power to do”

“Face my fears”

“Trust that I will be able to take care of myself”

“Embrace and process my discomforts”

“Accept that what may work well for me may not work for others”

“Let go of the things that I can not realistically change or influence”

“Moderate my expectations”

“Say the Serenity Prayer each morning”


“Repeat my intentions at least once a week throughout the year!”

Please share some of your intentions with me and others by commenting below.

In the meantime, remember to,

Let It Go–and Accept “What Is!”

    “Allow others the consequences of their choices” is very meaningful to me know. I was just telling my husband today about how I find out certain information that can be VERY helpful to others… but it seems that they often don’t care. And, one seemingly innocent decision can lead into a chain reaction of bad decisions which are out of their control. I never knew what to do until now. I just need to “Allow others the consequences of their choices”. 🙂

      Thank you for your comment, Lisa.
      At times abstaining can be quite difficult, particularly if we feel strongly that we know what’s best for someone and truly want to help them. I try to remind myself that I truly don’t know what is best for others, and it is better to let them learn for themselves through their life experiences.
