I wish I could sit here and tell you that I was the genius that came up with what you are about to read, but I am not...more so the messenger of something I think we all would enjoy at some capacity.

Enjoy and have a great Saturday!

"God, grant me the serenityto accept the people I cannot change,which is pretty much everyone,since I’m clearly not you, God.
At least not the last time I checked.
And while you’re at it, God,
please give me the courage
to change what I need to change about myself,
which is frankly a lot, since, once again,
I’m not you, which means I’m not perfect.
It’s better for me to focus on changing myself
than to worry about changing other people,
who, as you’ll no doubt remember me saying,
I can’t change anyway.
Finally, give me the wisdom to just shut up
whenever I think that I’m clearly smarter
than everyone else in the room,
that no one knows what they’re talking about except me,
or that I alone have all the answers.
Basically, God,
grant me the wisdom
to remember that I’m
not you.
