Why do we feel it necessary to remanufacture every moment in our lives into an almost unrealistic ‘perfect’ situation for ourselves, rather than accepting the moment for what it is? And then resting in that.

I’m doing this constantly. Incessantly. Obsessively. And it drives me mad. Not to mention the anxiety that’s brought on trying to stay one step ahead of . . . . . everything.

Instead of orchestrating our lives, maybe we can work on accepting the moment and Being.

Certainly, we have the ability to change what’s in our circle of influence on a daily basis, but lets not get carried away.

It’s stated very clearly in the Serenity Prayer: God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.

Or as George Costanza would say, “Serenity Now!”
