If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.
We all have an amazing capacity to exact change in our lives through awareness, diligence and effort. But some things simply cannot be changed. When we learn to know the difference, and accept and simply embrace whatever cannot be, peace can be found in any circumstance. A powerful message for daily life is contained in the simplicity of these words from the Serenity Prayer: God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
