choose your battles

I can't believe a week has gone by since I last posted WA on my blog! I'm sorry for the delay in getting back to it, but I've been busy working on a bridal shower, decorations for a wedding, taking care of a new puppy, and continuing to work on the special project I've mentioned in recent postings. Plus, just trying to breathe while battling a respiratory infection in between coughing spells.

One of my mantras in the past 10 years--to help me stay focused on what's important--is the simple phrase: CHOOSE YOUR BATTLES. I started thinking yesterday about how closely that intertwines with the Serenity Prayer, because as I'm choosing my battles, I'm asking God for the discernment to know which ones to fight and which ones to let go. My stress level has decreased sooooooo much since I started abiding by that mission and it helps me find clarity when times are confusing. Hope this message helps you in making choices in your own life.
Hope you have a very serene day!
