I’ve been going through a mini mid life crisis (see https://sunshynec.wordpress.com/2011/04/28/mid-twenties-crisis). I’m at a stage where I think I should have discovered my purpose on this earth is and because I haven’t, it’s led to my current less jovial state. I think I worry too much. No, I know I worry too. So I’ve decided to let go of things I cannot change and take life one day at a time trying to get as much joy in each day as I possibly can.
God, give us grace to accept with serenity
the things that cannot be changed,
Courage to change the things
which should be changed,
and the Wisdom to distinguish
the one from the other.
Living one day at a time,
Enjoying one moment at a time,
Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace,
Taking, as Jesus did,
This sinful world as it is,
Not as I would have it,
Trusting that You will make all things right,
If I surrender to Your will,
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life,
And supremely happy with You forever in the next.
This leads me to the 31 day challenge to reset my life.
Reset meaning to restore, to clear to zero, to set anew, to adjust again after an initial failure. And this is what I am aiming for. To restore my life back to that previous state of happiness, joy and less wrinkles. For more on this challenge see https://sunshynec.wordpress.com/2011/11/04/31-day-reset/
