The Power to Control the Things You Can
Many people have heard of the serenity prayer, a piece of which goes, “…grant 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.” Most people struggle with this, insisting upon trying to change the things over which they really have no control, and yet failing to focus their energies on the things that they do have the power to change.

I completely respect those who do love having their photo taken. . So the story I’m going with for this is that there are many things in our world that needs looking in a different direction. Sometimes it’s more looking up or ahead but right now everyone seems to be looking down and away. . Look at people around you. Notice what’s happening and smile and don’t be like everyone else.
