SERENITY PRAYER

God / Divinity / Source, 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.

Yesterday I was upset over a situation I wanted to remedy.  It would require a fight.  I would probably win,  but not without trouble and aggravation.  The reward would be the act of fighting back. However in this fighting back, I was falling into the laughing hands of this injustice, created to spawn anger (and domination).

As I experienced the inner turmoil of this, I felt exhausted; so I took a nap.   I knew in my soul the next healing would be to take a walk while the sun was still shinning.  During this walk (in which I thought I would find a course of action),  the Serenity Prayer came to me. I always liked this prayer,  but it never meant as much to me as now.  It gave me the direction to remedy my dilemma.
