If you resist what happens, you are at the mercy of what happens, and the world will determine your happiness and unhappiness.

You can’t calm the storm, so stop trying. What you can do is calm yourself. The storm will pass.

Stop trying to ‘fix’ yourself; you’re not broken! You are perfectly imperfect and powerful beyond measure.

Change the changeable. Accept the unchangeable. And remove yourself from the unacceptable.

Peace is the result of retraining your mind to process life as it is, rather than as you think it should be.

Surrender to what is. Say ‘yes’ to life—and see how life suddenly starts working for you rather than against you.

The past cannot be changed, forgotten, edited, or erased. It can only be accepted.

No regrets, just lessons. No worries, just acceptance. No expectations, just gratitude. Life is too short.

Happiness is when you feel good about yourself without the need for anyone else’s approval.

Learn to accept rather than expect, and you’ll have far fewer disappointments.

Acceptance is not submission; it is acknowledgment of the facts of a situation, then deciding what you’re going to do about it.

Life becomes easier when you learn to accept an apology you never got.

The more you hide your feelings, the more they show. The more you deny your feelings, the more they grow.

You don’t need strength to let go of something. What you really need is understanding.

Rejection doesn’t hurt, expectation does. Lying doesn’t destroy, denial does. Forgetfulness doesn’t heal, forgiveness does.

The intensity of the depends on the degree of resistance to the present moment.

I follow four dictates: face it, accept it, deal with it, then let it go.

I don’t know a perfect person. I only know flawed people who are still worth loving.

Live your life for you not for anyone else. Don’t let the fear of being judged, rejected or disliked stop you from being yourself.

If you can’t change the circumstances, change your perspective.
