    God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change

    The serenity prayer is something that many people use every day to get them through the hard parts of their lives. You can hear individuals chanting, "God grant 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." These words are powerful and if you really break down the sentence you can see why. The beginning reminds you not to focus on the things in your life that are out of your control. Most people are not mindful, and they are too focused on mistakes of their past or worries about their future. The next part, reminds you to take hold of the things that you can change. Even though many people recognize the power that they have in their lives, they refuse to take action. You have to actually have to make the moves to change it. Then, you have to be able to recognize the difference between hopeless situations and those that you can conquer.

    Don't spnd your time worrying about things that you can not change, the things in life that you have no control over. This is a waste of precious energy and is counter productive. Examine your life and determine what you have the ability to change, and then have the courage to make the changes that are possible. You can not control everything, or change others. You can control your reaction to people and situations though, and change yourself in order to bring about the changes that you want and need in your life. When you have a higher power in your life you discover peace and serenity, no matter how chaotic or out of control your life may seem. Know what can be effectively changed and then make these changes. Remember that stressing out over factors that can not be controlled or changed is not a productive use of your time and energy, and this will not accomplish anything but can cause harmful health problems. When you let god guide you then you will have the wisdom to determine whether something can be changed or if it must be accepted instead.

    This quote reminds you to be present in your daily life, and in doing that your problems are easier to handle. This are empowering words that can help you get through difficult situations in your life.
