The Serenity Prayer
“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; Courage to change the things I can; and the wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;”
“Taking, as he did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him forever in the Next. Amen.”
During the trials and tribulations in my early twenties I turned to God to help me cope, One of my favorite prayers that I say on a daily basis today is The Serentiy Prayer. I’ve found that it keeps me grounded and focus on the task at hand.
Regarding a career for myself, I remember as a young kid and well into my early twenties there were many areas in which I wanted to be a player. To say my interest in fields where I wanted to work varied would be an understatement. I can’t tell you how often I was advised to pick a profession and go after it. Eventually I did which happened to be the world of business, and as you may have guessed the ultimate in business after all these years, a Management Consultant.
I was sure of one thing and have never wavering from that belief after all of these years. I did not want to work for someone who had no clue of what they were doing. I wanted, in fact needed my supervisory to be more informed and smarter than I was on the work process. Too many times I ran into political appointees in the Government. In Private Concerns (other than Federal or local Govt.), family and or friends put into areas of authority without any background in how a particular department processes function. Many of you know exactly what I’m talking about.
I continue to love and enjoy music so much in fact I am also planning to cut and self-promote a CD of my favorite Rhythm & Blues tunes. Yes, I am going to be the feature singer. It’s part of my bucket list. With the help of my son I will be able to complete the project by the summer of next year.
As you can see, I intend to make 2015 a banner year for me. After all, we can fly if we think we can. All I can say is I hope you join me on this ride and stay tuned.
