God Grant Me The Serenity...

I used to be so strong. I was that unfettered shoulder that everyone would cry on. I was full of dreams and aspirations, for myself and the people I loved. I used to love so fervently and with such conviction. I was thoughtful and compassionate, and believed that anything worth having was worth fighting for. Unfortunately, this tumultuous rollercoaster we call life has harboured more terror than it has triumph, and with the bittersweet reminiscence of happiness and youth, I've conjured up enough energy to pray for one thing...

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I can't change; the maturity to know that you'll show me the way; the clemency to appreciate the sunset at the end of the day; the gratitute to see your mercy in all things; the foresight to know that you'll bring me through another day; and a creed that gives me unwavering faith.

P.S. I just thought I'd share something to help us stay focused.
