A personal note to MySelf!




I am LETting GO of the uncontrollables and unchangeables in My Life.

I am realistic and rational and accept that I can change only my feelings and attitudes about things which I AM powerless to change.

I accept personal responsibility for my life, thinking, emotions, and actions. I take care of myself better. I stop being martyr, fixer, rescuer, advice giver, and enabler.

I allow my Higher Power a place in my life along with correcting my unhealthy, irrational and unrealistic thinking so that I can better discern what is uncontrollable and unchangeable in my life.

God, your Higher Power is stronger and great source of power to which I hand over things out of my control.

I will control what really matters and work my best in a particular situation.

I’ll cherish every moment knowing that I’m able and good person with my own unique values and I’ll wait eagerly what unknown future destination my life is taking me to.

Kishley said...

Its so nice :) i've made many mental notes to myself but never got down to write 'em.. nd i think writing em will make u follow them too :D atleast for a while :)

Within Without said...

Letting go can be the most difficult of things, surrendering to something you know cannot change and that you have no power to change.

It's when we finally realize we must do that when it actually starts to release its grip on us.

And then we can start to let other beautiful things in and understand how good we are.

Congrats and best of luck with it.

White Forest said...

hey arun..

you are welcome!

yes...gud one!
very important

White Forest said...

White Forest said...

Varun Sadana said...

I did not understand the reason u why u wrote this blog, cause all that is written here makes really less sense to a 3RD person like me..

FYI : U really write well, sans this writeup, which is pathetically bad..

White Forest said...

Hey Varun,

Thanks for commenting for the first time on my blog!

Well ...I agree it hardly makes any sense to the third person .... as there is no context referred..which i deliberately dint want to!

Buf if you try to read those lines as it is literally... they are jsut a few affirmative lines ..i am trying to tell myself!

Jewel Rays said...

White Forest,

Yes after a long time indeeds...And finally here..*smiles*

Good weekend!

Eclipsed Thoughts said...

Darius said...

You're reminding me of a phrase from my favorite poet, William Wordsworth, who wrote about what he termed, "wise passiveness."

Ghost Particle said...

thats the basic idea of life...to just live it and enjoy it and be good to others!

Roy said...

White Forest said...

Yes Deepa :)

You have made me wonder now :P

White Forest said...

hi Sudeep ...

yes...very true...but when you assign them to yourself ...you have more responsiblity ...which may or may not be welcome ...but at times you just have to take it without any other options to look for...

Hey i am fine now :) thanks for asking.

White Forest said...

hi vaik ...
thanks...hmm so true

White Forest said...

PythoRoshan said...

quite a good post..really nice. enjoyed reading your earlier post too

Anonymous said...

LoL why don't merge all replies together and post them as a one comment? simply just you are trying keep the number comments high!! i guess!! impressing? haha!

Meg said...

What a beautiful place, what a beautiful post....I couldn't agree more. I think if we mastered that concept and lived our lives accordingly - letting things go, only controlling things that which we have control over - we would find much peace. I've tried to do that, its just that some days its much easier to do than others.

Very well written. Thanks for stopping by.

Anshuman Ghosh said...

whatever happened to you !?
gone all philosophical ?

The funda's simple : theres so much to do in life - enjoy the process, work towards da goals, and live life.

Anil The Great said...

hmm, a very mature thought. But not an easy thing to implement.
May you succeed in what you want to do.

coolvir said...

Hey lovely thoughts.
It again reiterate the point of happiness being internal rather than external as many ppl thinks:)

Keshi said...

Keshi.

Nabeel said...

White Forest said...

Anonymous...does it really matter how many comments a post has ??
or is it solid way to judge a post by number of comments ??
I have seen a blog which doesnt get lot of comments but is ther on every person who is interested in MBA..so thats the impact that blog has ...so it really ddoesnt really matter..

White Forest said...

hi meg ..

White Forest said...

hi Anshuman ...

when i find no place to go ...i fall back on philosophy which will make me stand ...instead of stumbling!

i agree your funda..simple and sweet :)

White Forest said...

The Visitor said...

I am LETting GO of the uncontrollables and unchangeables in My Life.

I am realistic and rational and accept that I can change only my feelings and attitudes about things which I AM powerless to change.

I accept personal responsibility for my life, thinking, emotions, and actions.


Excellent sentiments!

But I dont agree with
I stop being martyr, fixer, rescuer, advice giver, and enabler.

when there are so many people out there who want rescuing, advice and want to be enabled.

I would be visiting your other posts and probably will be giving such irritable comments (advice?), I hope you dont mind?
