There is often a gap between where I want my life to go and where it actually goes. I often wonder if I am control or if there is so much going on that it is too much to control. The truth lies somewhere in the middle. I can control certain things and something I can’t. Knowing this is stressful because there are certain things in life you just have to accept. Everything will not go exactly as planned. We share this world with 8 billion other people who do not think or act the same. There could be a lot more chaos than there actually is. Be present and remind yourself of the Serenity Prayer.
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.Reinhold Niebuhr
