finding serenity

Tuesday, July 09, 2013

Serenity prayer
Lord 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

i am working on the wisdom. Then i can stop stressing over what i cant change and focus my energy towards what is more important.

    I used to say that to myself MANY times a day!! Helped me sort out what I was responsible for and what was not my stuff.

    I hope that you and myself try to live this way, I have heard this before, but usually do not put it into practice. I think a part of me just likes to worry over something, small or great.

    It is sometimes difficult but well worth working on.

    Serenity and Acceptance are the tough parts of that...
Isn't it wonderful that there is a heaven to believe in, a Holy Family, and entities who are always there to listen?
