January 9th: Serenity

Hanna Ocean

“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.”

It is easy to say… “I’m not going to let anyone or anything take my serenity away today” but the reality is… without daily spiritual connection… serenity becomes easy to lose.

Without quiet moments each day where I make the time to reflect on what I am grateful for, pray to my Higher Power for guidance, or calm my mind before reacting, I can find myself straying away from my spiritual path, and inviting chaos to take hold of my life.

Whatever spiritual routine I choose to follow, I must practice it each day.

In this way, I will learn not to allow serenity to be stolen from me by letting my mind become overwhelmed with life’s daily highs and lows.

“Dear God, help me to stay in gratitude, walk in faith, and trust your path for me.”

  1. It has been six months, now, since my ex and I parted. It feels like moments and years at the same time. I do sense a difference in how I think about things and how the past comes to mind, but I have to be so careful to not let my mind wander too far. Thank you for this – there are days where my own mind can take my serenity away, let alone others — when I forget to take the time to “quiet” things down. I hope this will become easier. I’m impatient and feel that I should be past this struggle by now.

  2. Patricia I was married almost 20 years… it took me two years just to feel better and about five years to feel like I was back-to-business. Be kind to yourself… six months is nothing in the grand scheme of things… I see your progress through your words… I see you moving forward… keep going… you are getting there! 🙂 D.

  3. Thank you, Patricia. I’m glad…. and I love seeing you move on… Remember when I said people would say that time heals all wounds and you would hate it? LOL… but it is really true… the passage of time does help. 🙂 D.
