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.

–Reinhold Niebuhr

A very simple prayer, yet with a very deep meaning. Don’t try to change anything. It will only increase your stress level, and soon or later, will kill you!

Before try to change anything, you must accept the situation. It happens already, nothing you can do to reverse it. By accepting the situation, it will significantly reduce your stress level, and help to clear your mind.

Once you regain your mind, start thinking of solution. With clear mind, you will be able to analyze the situation better, and come up with solution to prevent things from getting worse, and make recovery action. With cluttered mind, your solution will be less effective.

(Special Thanks to my Lecturer, Mr Ignas Sidik, for citing this prayer and its meaning in this evening class)
