As a side note to Mindful Monday today, where I talked about “worry” and how we should try to live in the moment, I received a wonderful heartfelt message from my friend, Erika. She reminded me of the Serenity Prayer which I am sharing below:
The Serenity Prayer was crafted by Theologian, Reinhold Niebuhr. The sandersweb.net has posted the original poem which is much longer than the first two lines I have shown above.
This is the famous poem used by AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) and you can find out more about the history of the poem on this website: aahistory.com.
Needless to say, this poem puts our worries in perspective and goes along with my assertion that we should not worry about the things we can’t fix. Instead, live in the moment and try to fix the things within your control.
I know, easier said than done.
I really enjoy all the conversations we generate on Monday. Thanks for stopping by,
