Every night before I go to sleep, I make a list of 3 happy things that happened today and three crappy things that happened today. I take a moment to review the crappies and determine if there was anything I can do to change them. If not, I say the serenity prayer:
God Grant me the strenght to accept the things I can not change
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.
We can respond to irritation with a smile instead of scowl, or by giving warm praise instead of icy indifference. By our being understanding instead of abrupt, others, in turn, may decide to hold on a little longer rather than to give way. Love, patience, and meekness can be just as contagious as rudeness and crudeness.
