My Gratitude Journal

I wish everyday was June

That’s what Joshua said on Friday night.

I said “why?” He said so that he could play with junebugs everyday.


Well, I woke up on Saturday morning thinking that June was a very eventful month. I did not like my ride on this roller coaster. I want to step off this ride. I’m ready for the next one. I want to move forward. I want to make progress. I want to see change.
I realize that I only have control over my circumstances.

I remember my 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.

I accept that there are circumstances that I have no control over and therefore cannot change. I had the courage to take action over the circumstances I have control over. Serenity came when I surrendered and focused on my own side.

I had written in an earlier blog that:


But sometimes you can’t fight for both sides because you don’t have control over everything. I can only take care of what I can on my side. And do the best that I can.
