God, grand me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the COURAGE to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.
The COURAGE to change the things I can.
I’m here because, one day, thirteen months ago, I mustered that courage.
Today, as I record this, I’m working to remember that this is all I need, the courage to change what I can change, today (and the wisdom to know what I can’t do). I don’t need to reach perfection, I don’t have to have the best performing fantasy football squad, I don’t have to work out every day, or eat healthy every single meal, or feed Ben. Okay, I guess I do need to feed Ben.
I’ve been thinking a lot about courage lately because it’s the other side of the serenity coin. Its such a relief to know what you can’t change! Talk about freedom!
But man, when you do see what you can and should change… it can suck! It takes courage to face!
