Today is my birthday and I am giving myself the greatest gift of all, the gift of acceptance. I accept that I have no control over other people and their decisions. I accept that I am entering a new phase and that it is exciting and uncomfortable. I accept that I am no longer doing one step forward and two steps back.... I will just be still... And then move forward! I accept calmness within the roaring sea that is Life..... I thank God for the life he has given me and the adventure that awaits. I accept that God knows, and that's enough!
