March 23--Changing Me Changes the World

Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself. 
--Leo Tolstoy

    I would suggest that this quote may be generally true, but it is a sign of immaturity. As a many-decades 12-Stepper, I have learned and integrated into my life that the only way to change the world is to change me. I believe this is why the Serenity Prayer is so powerful, loved and repeated. This is my affirmative version:
God grants 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. 
Have a wise, serene day.
