Serenity Now

I’m not shy to admit that I’m not a religious person. Spiritual maybe, but not religious. Regardless, I was thinking about the Serenity Prayer today. It has a great message, no matter your faith.

“Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change and the courage to change the things I can.” I can get so hung up on things that I have no control over instead of working on the things that I can. I guess the silver lining is that I do know the difference, or so I think…

I hate feeling helpless, I’m a fix-er or solution-finder. I hate being in a bind, and I’m usually resourceful enough to not have it last for long. I can change and control myself, that’s what it is time to focus on. 🙂
