  •  reminds me of the serenity prayer (3+ / 0-)
    God, 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.
    via Wikipedia.

    What I like about the serenity prayer is that premise that there are things you CANNOT CHANGE. In America the ideology is that we can do anything we want, effect change if we just try, go anywhere, be anyone. Throwing out the idea that you can remake the world (yourself, your body, your family) exactly the way you want it, the way it should be, throwing that idea out is a good thing.

    The rest of the prayer is good, too.
