The following is from a friend, Andrew. Though it was offered to me quite some time ago, but I find myself drawn to these words today. (my notes in brackets)
- Accept that some things in life cannot be changed OR cannot be changed by YOU.
- Accept life as a learning experience, every day.
- Choose not to take anything personally, [contrary to your own “very important” point of view] it is NOT about you.
- Choose not to form expectations, but if you do … expect that everyone has the best intentions.
