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.
