The Serenity Prayer

God, 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.
Reinhold Niebuhr

This morning, I offer you a prayer. Whispered from my heart to yours. I pray that you find serenity, peace, wisdom and courage. I pray that you are able to create the most beautiful life possible.

In life, there are often many things happening that are beyond our control. The Serenity Prayer asks us to find wisdom to know which things these are. Then, we are able to release those things from our hearts and minds.

Instead, we can focus on the things that are within our control. Many times, the only things we can control are our own actions and our own reactions to these circumstances.

When something happens that we didn't want, we can try to fight against it, or we can learn to have acceptance and forgiveness. Accepting is more difficult, but it will get us much farther in the long run.

Learning to accept the things we cannot change allows us to free up mental space for the things that are in our control. It allows us to find a starting point, right where we are.

As we grow this skill of acceptance, we become more wise and courageous as well. We are able to make an impact in areas that are within our control. Instead of pushing up against a brick wall, we learn to find another way.

I hope that you can whisper this prayer for yourself today, and that it can inspire positive change in your own life. I pray that it gives you a sense of hope and purpose to take with you into your day.

Have a bright and blessed day today, my lovelies!
