We all go through times of stress and sad times. What is a simple, yet profound saying that you have reminded yourself of to make these troubling times easier? You don't have to believe in a literal God, just that there are higher thoughts within us that we all are able to draw from.
The one that has worked the best for me is:
"God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things that I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference"
What is yours? Brad
