The Serenity Prayer was first introduced to me when I was around 10 years old, my neighbor Marie Dalzell gifted me with a plaque with the words inscribed on them. I knew it was powerful then but never knew the meaning it would come to have over time.
It goes like this;
God grant me the serenity to accept the thing I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.
