Timeless Tuesday – Serenity



“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.”
~ Serenity Prayer by Reinhold Niebuhr

When I was carrying my son, the Serenity Prayer was one of the daily prayers that I repeated many times throughout the day. It put me in a place of peace to not stress out over things that were beyond my control.

Dr. Stephen Covey’s book 7 Habits of Highly Effective People teaches the reader to work in his/her Circle of Influence. I find this advice to be similar to the Serenity Prayer. It is the first Habit to develop to become a highly effective person.

The First Habit instructs the reader to work in the area that he/she has the most control. This often is yourself. You have the most control over you. You can make changes in you by the way you view or approach a situation, person or thing.

Trying to change someone else is a difficult thing to do, if they do not want to be changed. Recognizing this earlier in life will save you a lot of headaches in the future. Therein lies wisdom that brings serenity. The Serenity Prayer (whether you are religious or not) is a timeless prayer for most situation in life.

Namaste on Timeless Tuesday.

Live a Diamond Life. Live a Life of Purpose!
