Serenity.

Deus, dona mihi serenitatem accipere res quae non possum mutare, fortitudinem mutare res quae possum, atque sapientiam differentiam cognoscere.

God, 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.


I really really really need to be working much harder on section 5 of my new year's resolutions. *sigh*

I've been reciting that since I was three. It's the closing prayer in Alcoholics Anonymous that you recite at the end of every meeting.

Sorry, lol. I was raised in those rooms, basically. It's weird to see it on livejournal :D

...and in case you should know any pagans who need serenity, my personal favorite version:

God & Goddess grant me:

The power of Water, to accept with ease & grace what I cannot change.

The power of Fire, for the energy & courage to change the things I can.

The power of Air, for the ability to know the difference.

And the power of Earth, for the strength to continue my path.
