Reading some of the comments today, I was reminded of the Serenity Prayer. A part of which I do use as much as I can in my own life. A part of the prayer:
“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change. The courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.”
The first part as I see it. God grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change. In this physical life there is almost nothing that I can’t change at least to some extent should I so choose. Asd I sit here there are only 2 things that just pop to mind that I can’t change. One is my heart,I do not have a healthy heart. I know it will one day fail and there is nothing I can do about that. Having said that though I realize there are things in my life that I can do to “work with my heart”, to support it as it struggles at times to beat away.
What I truly have no control over and can not change is other people. We have to realize that, accept that. Other people are other people, they are living their lives the very best way they can. We must just accept that. I am responsible for who I am and what I do, others are responsible for who they are and what they do. We must accept them as they are or let them go.
I had planned on carrying on with the rest of my thoughts on the prayer and will tomorrow. Went with Henri to the store and am really pooped. I am interest in the thoughts of others on this.
