"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..." (shared by Char Sundust, 1/19/16)

Have the serenity to accept what you cannot change. The courage to change what you can and the wisdom to know the difference......♡ The hardest and and most important lesson in life.

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. #serenityprayer

the courage to move forward

Just as a flower cannot flourish in the dark, you cannot reach success without risk. Have the courage to make a change and move forward!

Have the courage to take the steps required to change your life, however small.

I love this artwork! Also, I have always believed this prayer is three steps in itself: 1) gaining serenity to accept, 2) having the courage to change what we can, and 3) gaining wisdom to know the difference. This realization really helped during my first months in Al-Anon.
