A Lesson I Already Knew.

"God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference."

was the motto of my day, but really… I need to just listen to this more often.


Today, I learned that I really can not change things or handle everything. I can’t make everything perfect, which is a hard concept for me since I’m a perfectionist. All of my problems, and everything part of His plan is in His hands.

I knew this. Really, I did. But, sometimes I override that fact in my brain and try to solve things anyway. You can’t change people, ever. You can influence them, but you can’t just say a magic word and they be perfect. I saw something on a friend’s Facebook status that I loved: “Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and help them to become what they are capable of being.”

I need to be happier with what I have. Today, I had an appointment with my new diabetes doctor, which went very well. Then, I went to Wal-Mart with one of my best friends and we cooked dinner. (Daily photo is again, a meal.)

We were going to go visit Amanda in Montana next week, but plans fell through. So, since we both already took off work… we decided to go to Dallas. Because I have never been. YES, I have never been to Dallas. Everyone alert the media…. Hahaha. I hung out with April too, tonight. Went to Wal-Mart again, and then watched Catch and Release (had never seen it).

  1. You're not alone in this fight girl :) Plenty of people I know [myself included] are guilty of the same things. :)

    to 'let go and let God' is such a difficult concept for any human mind but it's very important :)
