This has got me through a lot!


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.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
--Reinhold Niebuhr
Lesson Learned:  I can't and do not have to fix everything and everyone. Meet people where they are.  Embrace one day at a time living. Live in the moment. 
Favorite line: Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace! I feel like that sums up where I've been and where I can, sometimes am, and strive to be. =)
Reminder today:  I do not want someone to remember me for the worst thing I have ever done. My heavenly father does the opposite and calls me to do the same. God has extended massive amounts of grace to me and calls me to do the same.
Remembering all this and doing all this for me is journey filled of peaks and pits. So glad I only have to tackle it one day at a time.
