Serenity required

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;...

Reinhold Niebuhr (1892–1971)

The Serenity Prayer is the common name for a prayer written by the American theologian Reinhold Niebuhr . 

This prayer is something I find my self saying in my head, often, when trying to deal with the strange symptoms of fibromyalgia.

    We think alike. I love this prayer too. I wrote a similar post, similar photo too. http://painfighter.wordpress.com/2012/08/10/serenity-prayer/

  2. Thanks painfighter, I love your quote photos, or whatever they are called. Isn't the world wide web great? getting to connect with many like minded souls.

  3. Hi! This prayer is quintessential and I do believe acceptance and finding peace are key components to regaining a sense of wellness. You are a wonderful support for others around the world. Thank you for being there for me! Healing thoughts, Valda

    I think what you published made a great deal of sense.
    But, consider this, suppose you were to create a awesome post title?

    I mean, I don't wish to tell you how to run your website, but suppose you added a title that makes people want more? I mean "Serenity required" is kinda plain. You could look at Yahoo's home page
    and note how they write news titles to get people to open the links.

    You might add a video or a picture or two to get people interested
    about everything've written. Just my opinion, it could bring your blog a little bit more interesting.

  9. I believe that you need to write more about this subject matter, it might not be a taboo matter but typically folks don't talk about these topics. To the next! Many thanks!!

  10. Greetings! Very useful advice within this article!
    It's the little changes that will make the most important changes. Thanks for sharing!
