For me finding serenity is about changing perspective.
It seems that whenever I get my mind dead set on a specific outcome or a specific way of doing things…. I’m suddenly flustered and in an emotional uproar.
But the moment I note that something is not going as planned, and I acknowledge the problem and move past my frustration towards a creative solution… my mind calms and my serenity returns.
By surrendering myself, by keeping an open mind, by choosing to look at multiple solutions when things go awry… I allow serenity to enter and my spirit to find relief.
“God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdow to know the difference.”
