This is a such a great statement:
God grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change,
the courage to change the one I can,
and the wisdom to know it's me.

When we focus exclusively on changing ourselves, we release the desire and need to change and control – the people close to us who we love, and all those other people and things we ‘wish were different’.
I cannot change anyone else. I may influence them sometimes, but they are going to think and behave as they want to think and behave.
My life is mine. Their life is theirs.
I take charge of my life and live At Ease & In Control.
