Acceptance

I am not a religous girl but I really like this quote:

“God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.” ~Reinhold Niebuhr~

I am at that point with my hips were I am close to acceptance, but not quite there yet so am fighting an internal battle. Acceptance to me feels like giving up on a lifestyle I used to enjoy.   I know acceptance isn’t about giving up, its about just being with the present moment and managing with things the way they are.   But I don’t like things the way they are, so the very thought of acceptance makes me want to cry.
