There are two things in life… The things you can change and the things you cannot change.Though many people spend time frowning at the things they cannot change, there are some who have learned to accept those things they cannot change and concentrate on changing the things that depend on thier effort. The things you cannot change are meant to bring the things you can change into a spotlight. Accepting the things you cannot change is the beginning of addressing the ones you can change.
The Things you cannot change
These are those conditions in life that you had and still have no influence over. For example, your family background, your race, your cultural and ethnic background, your gifts (talents), your life purpose to mention a few. On the other hand, the things you can change are those aspects in life that are influenced by effort such as your personality, attitude, lifestyle etc.
Everything that cannot change is there to serve the things that can be changed by putting you in an advantaged position. Therefore before you frown at the things you cannot change in your life, remember that those are your advantaged points over others. There are definitely some favors you will not enjoy if you had no connection to your present natural conditions.
In life, always accept the things you cannot change and use them to your best advantage because those are some of the natural opportunities you get as you live.
