my sisters wise words . What a relieving thought. Just think for a second that everything is just the way it was meant to be. All to often I find myself wound up trying to change my situation or myself or the people around me. Mostly I try to change my husband, maybe because I feel responsible for choosing him as my partner, family is just there....you can not get a new sister and you don´t pick out your mother. Your partner is the only family member you choose. I realize now I´ve been putting to much pressure on him to be perfect to justify my decision. Maybe there is a reason I´m realizing this now - not sooner or later. I feel a weight lifted off my shoulders. I can apply this thought to so many areas of my life and feel my stress fade away.
Don´t get me wrong....life will go on and I´m not of to la la land.
Maybe the key is in this quote that has helped millions:
"Mother—God grant me the serenity to accept things I cannot change, courage to change things I can, and wisdom to know the difference."
