We do not always like the way things are. Today’s environment makes us get angry sometimes. With traffic jams, with corruption, with spoilt brats of politicians , with the “I must get past you at any cost” attitude and so on.
Sometimes we wish we could change the way things are in our world. You and I know that you cannot change every thing to suit your needs.
Here is a small prayer called The Serenity Prayer used by Alcoholics Anonymous (and I am not a member!) which strikes me as being beneficial in such times.
God, grant me the serenity to
Accept the things I cannot change
Courage to change the things I can
And wisdom to know the difference
Acquiring happiness comes through looking at the good things you have….not what the other fellow has!!
