The Serenity Prayer

Serenity-Prayer (2).jpg

You may well have seen or heard this prayer before (actually it is just part of a longer prayer written in the early 1930s by US theologian Reinhold Niebuhr) , most closely associated with Alcoholics Anonymous and other recovery programmes.

It is however a design for life and wellbeing for anybody really.

You don’t have to be religious; you can call on your own understanding of the divine.

And even if you are a dyed in the wool atheist you can permit yourself the assets  mentioned in the  words to be used at your disposal to meet most life situations.

I use the prayer more often than my own ego would like, for the simple fact is that I  often don’t have a f**king clue about how to react to certain things.

If nothing else, it gives me a pause before I might plow on ahead and do some damage…
