inevitable

what is the difference between concern & worry? let me illustrate. every time i cross the traffic-jammed streets of new york, i am concerned about what i am doing - but not worried. concern means realizing what the problems are and calmly taking the steps to meet them. worrying means going around in maddening, futile circles.


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.

Ooh. Now that's quite an eloquent analogy. I like!

the serenity prayer is my all time favorite . I say it in my head at least daily!
