I'm not sure about today.I think if I could go back to yesterday and had actually slept last night, today might be going a little smoother.Perhaps the realisation that next week we fly home ,and that once there it will all be just as we left it,is compounding things for me.Perhaps its just the wind.Either way I found myself thinking of this poem which I truly do not think I have had cause to think of since my school days.Funny that a modern day film about olden day romance would help me find some rhythm in my day.
grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change;
the courage to change the things I can
and the wisdom to know the difference.
For some reason I find it a little " arghh" that this is the prayer used by AA and other help programs but then again that is the beauty of it.It can be applied to anything and in its simplicity lies its magic.
Clear and simple.I do so wish that life was like that sometimes.Just a little.
