Do you use the serenity prayer?

“God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”

Yes, I’m realizing that I have used this almost daily for decades. The art is finding the wisdom to know what you can’t change and what you can. Using the four voices to explore those issues is very helpful for me. When stuck, sometimes I just leap right to the action version, “Do something you can do something about!”
