I was thinking about the part of the serenity prayer that says “grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change”.
Now, I’m not going to try and fool you into thinking that I go to NA/AA meetings all the time by talking the talk.
But, I do want to point out that there are a lot of things that I took away from my time in NA/AA that I find useful in my everyday life.
One of the things that I feel that I’ve struggled with has been the whole accepting the things I cannot change. Rationally I know the importance of this acceptance but I have struggled to take that rational thought and put it to use in my life.
That was until I heard myself telling my son “you do what you can, the very best that you can, and that is all you can do”. Boom! How simple. But could it truly be that simple to accept the things I cannot change?
