“God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change.
God, grant me the serenity to stop trying to boss the world.
God, grant me the serenity not to overpower anyone with my agenda.”
You may think you are in charge, but you’re not. You may like all your ducks lined up in a row, but sometimes one of them will not cooperate. Sometimes, the more you want order, the more you get chaos. It is most important to understand you don’t control the universe, you can’t make the trees grow and you can’t stop time.
Here are three tips to remind you that you are powerless, you can’t control everything and most of the time, anything.
One: you can’t cant stop a tornado.
Two: you cant control you’re significant other.
Three: shoot, you can’t even control you’re farts –especially past the age of 50.
Next time you feel like you have to control something, remind yourself you are not the great creator. Stop trying to be the great controller. Instead open up your arms and surrender.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to not beat up anybody and wisdom to shut my mouth amen!
Finally, when you feel that controlling spirit coming up: breathe and release. Breathe and release. Breathe and release and see yourself as you really are, a tiny dot in this great big universe.
