a dream of Serenity (Prayer)
Friday, March 06, 2020
I have always felt encouraged by the Serenity Prayer but did not give much thought to the word 'Serenity' and what it truly means for our hearts.
the other day, I read a little Al-Anon affirmation, and I particularly like the definition it gave for Serenity as (quote): Serenity for me today is simply a clear-eyed and realistic way of seeing the world, accompanied by inner peace and strength. (/end quote)
for me, that would be the way I'd like to face life... without inebriation/substance abuse of any kind, without rationalizations/excuses nor avoidance of any sort, but living life, face forward, walking the talk, with the peace that I can do what I can do, release what I can't change and trust that things will work out, 1 way or another, and that's a beautiful place to walk the talk.
I'm headed that way, and hope you are too! Cheers :)
