Letting Go of Control
- 2014 27 Jan
The Serenity Prayer challenges us to not try to control what we cannot control; to know the difference between what we can have an impact on and what we must simply allow to occur. Knowing the difference is critical to our emotional well-being. Do you stop to think about situations you are trying desperately to control when in fact you have no control over them? On the other hand, are you clear about the areas of your life over which you can impact and in fact are intended to take responsibility? Consider the difference and choose to act accordingly.
