The Serenity Prayer
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
“The wisdom to know the difference”
It is such a relief when you do realize that you have no control over certain things or other people’s actions. I know a weight was lifted off me when I finally let go of worrying about the actions or thoughts of others.
The only thing you can change is YOU.
Your actions. Your words. Your behaviors.
You can wake up each morning and decide to be grateful or hateful.
You can choose to live your day positively or negatively.
You can’t change how people talk to you, but you can control how you react to them.
You can’t change if a loved has unhealthy habits, but you can set a positive example.
You can’t control if others decide to live with hate or ignorance, bu you can choose to live life with love and an open-mind.
I could go on and on with different scenarios with work, school, friends, housing market, tragedies, etc. and the message would still be the same –
Let go of what you cannot change and focus on what you can!
Hope you have a great positive weekend focusing on YOU!
