The Serenity Prayer (“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and the wisdom to know the difference”) has been helpful for many. But for me personally, it’s been a difficult pill to swallow.

Some of you are either on or have kids who are on or will be on Spring Break. Vacation often signals more time spent with family. And any time we’re in a situation where family is priority, things get, well a little messy.

How do you deal with the difficulties of spending time with those you love? Be it friends or family, I often return to that Serenity Prayer and find ways to accept what seems unacceptable.

Whether you are grappling with your own mental health issues or trying to accept and understand those you love, this week’s post has something valuable for you. You’ll learn how to accept your own imperfections and others as well as learn ways to change what we can (through nutrition and even a clean room). Maybe reading these will make digesting that Serenity Prayer just a tad bit easier. Here’s hoping.
