Ah! The spark has gone! The twinkle in your eyes in a bit dim. Everything is taking way too long and the process is way too complex. Or at least that is the way it seems. This is only a test, as is many things. No, I am not going to say “you need to learn patience”. That is for another day, today the issue today is one of serenity. So of course, we go the serenity prayer. “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.” The last part many be the trickiest for some.
Just remember that the best place to find things you can change is inside yourself. You can’t change another person by force of will or long debates, but you can decide to let it go and be at peace with the other person as they are, even if you don’t like what they have to say.
