My real life situation has required decisions concerning excepting the status quo or standing and fighting. Fortunately, doing the latter stood out like a neon sign. The problem has been gathering the mental energy to go the long haul.
Lately I’ve been thinking of the Serenity Prayer:
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.
Of course, you don’t have to be spiritual to understand the sage advice. I’ve found the most difficult part is accepting things I cannot change. Letting go of the desire to control a situation I cannot affect in any meaningful way is humbling. This segues to today’s video, Let It Be, by the Beatles.
