Quoted

“God grant me the serenity to accept things that I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”
Reinhold Niehbur

I never understood this quote before and I always thought it was so beautiful. But like many things in life we learn to accept sad truth. Experience brings wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. Today, I have been enlightened to the meaning of this quote and suddenly it became a little less beautiful.

My Directive: always keep an open mind, that’s the only way you can truly learn.
