Control. May 3, 2010.
“Control is never achieved when sought after directly. It is the surprising outcome of letting go.” -Arthur Ray

This one is particularly difficult for me. I want to be in control of everything that happens in my life. To not be in control scares me to death. Suicide is one way to exert control in uncontrollable circumstances. For today, let me accept that I don't know the future and that I can only control certain things. Let me remember 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.
