What you can change, and what you can’t

Kermit had a point when he grumbled that it’s not easy being green.

His argument was that being green made him blend in with so many things, which sort of ignores the evolutionary benefits of camouflage, but we do get what he meant.

The big thing of course is that Kermit was, is, and always will be green.

You’re a frog for goodness’ sake, man.

It’s easy to believe that things would be different for you if they weren’t as they are.

You’d be happier if you did this or that. You’d be better off if things were different. You’d be more content if only, if only.

Sometimes, of course, change is possible. But only sometimes.

So if you can’t change something, isn’t it better to simply accept it?

If you’re a frog, you’re green, and that’s the way it’s always going to be.

Surely only a muppet could disagree with that.

  1. Somethings you can change and sometimes you have to or something really bad will happen. Sometimes you need help. But it’s true you cannot change some things. Remember always ‘The Serenity Prayer’:

    Give me the power to accept the things I cannot change
    The courage to change the things I can
    And the wisdom to know the difference
