A New Take on “The Serenity Prayer”
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can change, & the wisdom to know that it is ME!
It is true. The only thing I can be sure of changing is myself. Of course, when I change me, the Universe changes also to align with the new me. Whatthis means is that when I don’t like what I am seeing or hearing, it is time for me to change me – that is shift to a new TV or radio station, so I can see or hear different things.
When I quit looking for what I don’t like, & start looking for what I do like, I find there is much around me that is quite good. I find that people can & sometimes do change overnight when I quit expecting their behavior to be bad & start looking for how it is good. I have shifted my feelings from animosity to love.
We all need more love,
Love & Blessings
