For the things I cannot control. Life is unpredictable, ever-changing, and filled with countless attitudes. For a control freak like me, this can be unnerving. But attached to the indefinite come many things that can impact and transform our lives for the better. And realizing that I’m not at the wheel every minute of my life, teaches me about acceptance; and acceptance brings peace, and peace brings happiness. So, today, even for that which I cannot control, I am thankful.
Until next Thursday’s post…si Dios quiere.
[Note: In case you’re not Spanglish-speaking, “si Dios quiere” means God-willing. Mom finished most of her sentences with that. I added it to my sendoff after her departure].
What are you thankful for today?
“Of course there is no formula for success except, perhaps, an unconditional acceptance of life and what it brings.”
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.
