What can I control?

Some days I feel like this thing called life is spinning out of control.  Have you read the Headlines in the New York Times today?  I have … Whew!  In so many ways, there’s just not a lot you can control, especially when it comes to other people. 

You sure can’t control:

* Other people’s actions
* Other people’s opinions
* Other people’s feelings
* Other people’s mistakes

But let’s think about this for a minute.  What can you control today, at least in large part?

* Your attitude
* Your effort
* Your behavior
* Your actions

Sounds a lot like the Serenity Prayer, doesn’t it?  Well, let’s pray it then. 

Big breath and All together…

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…

Friends, may in be so in our lives today!
