I spend so much time worrying about aspects of my life (or other people’s lives) that I have absolutely no power over. I do believe that there is a pattern to our lives and that everything happens for a reason, usually to teach us something that we really need to know. And yet I still find myself fretting needlessly at times over issues I cannot change. I should recite The Serenity Prayer to myself more often! I need to really believe every single day that when I have done my part, I can let the rest go and trust the Universe to do the rest, and know that it will be okay…
God grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,
And the Wisdom to know the difference….
