"Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference."
I would not identify myself as religious, per se.
But I do believe something higher and bigger exists.
I was born and raised Catholic and this prayer was part of my world for so long.
So much so, that I got it permanently inked on me.
It is a daily reminder, especially when things don’t always turn out as I had planned.
Here’s the thing, though.
I have control issues.
Most likely why I work for myself and why I am an entrepreneur.
We all have had these moments, where we can’t sleep, can’t eat, can’t stop crying, can’t stop thinking, can’t stop wondering ‘why?’ or ‘what if I had only done this?’.
Here’s the secret:
You are going to be ok.
No matter what it is, you WILL get through it.
You will get that pit in your stomach to go away. You will find your way back to your bed and sleep peacefully again.
You will have a scar that will remind you and bring back a tiny lump in your throat.
But then, you will remember that you got through it, and you are so incredibly strong; stronger than you ever thought possible.
Life has this incredible way of throwing us off track, a curveball when we think that perfect pitch right down the middle is coming our way.
You’re going to get hit by a few pitches and most will be so far out of reach, but you will swing for the fence anyway.
But you took a swing.
You tried with everything you have in you.
And that, THAT is really something to be proud of.
