Repeat me. Repeat me.

I have been so stressed out. Lately, I have been remembering the Serenity Prayer, which is often thought of in relation to Alcoholics Anonymous, although many outside of that use it for inspiration. Specifically, the part where they talk about accepting the things you cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference, really stands out. I pray anyway, but I really appreciate things like Serenity Prayer. Do you remind yourself of anything when you are stressed? I like to remind myself of my blessings as well. Hey, any churchgoers remember the hymn, "Count Your Blessings"?I Oh, to be able to afford a massage right about now!

Now that hymn is going around and around in my mind. It's something to remember, for sure, and it's so easy to focus on what's wrong that we forget all about what's right. Granted, sometimes it seems like the "wrong" things are so much bigger than the "right" things at the moment. Still, focusing on what is right helps us deal better with what is wrong.

I'm sorry you're so stressed. The Serenity Prayer is really special I feel. When I am in a situation I don't like I say to myself this time tomorrow it will all be over. This of course only works if the problem is very short-term but it does help me.
