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. But God, grant me the courage not to give up on what I think is right even though I think it is hopeless.”

I shared this helpful prayer with a younger friend of mine who is just not entering her quarterlife crisis. It's a crazy time for all of us, but you need to learn to thrive in chaos!

That's one thing I've had to answer in nearly every interview ever- "How do you handle stressful situations?" For me, it's sitting back and doing just what this says- handling what I can and working through everything that I can't.

Hope you're enjoying life and that your friend soldiers on and realizes that the chaos is what keeps life interesting at times.
