Serenity

All these people talking about saber rattling and nuke war. And I'm over here just breathing in and out and putting one foot in front of the other right now. It's work to get up and get dressed some days.

Living one day at a time. Continuing to make progress knowing perfection is out of reach.

I can't change what happened four years ago this weekend. I accept that.

But I can determine my response to those events. I choose peace, joy, hope, and health.

Praying I have the courage to change the things I can and should.

Praying to make it through the next few days with peace and grace and only a few tears. Or maybe a lot.

Sometimes it obvious which things are which. Which I must accept and which I need courage to change. Sometimes I don't even need to pray for wisdom to know the difference; it's obvious what I must accept and what I can and should change.

I can walk in serenity when I don't spend energy on stuff I can't change but on the things I can and should.
