One Day at a Time

"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."

This prayer rings true for me when i think of the fact that i haven't blogged for a long time. my days have been occupied with doing too much and doing so little that on days when I do too much, I just don't know where to start blogging from and the days i do little, i don't feel i have anything to say and so instead of DOING anything, i just shut down. We do that a lot in life, just shut down because you don't know the difference between the things you can change and those you cant change. 
For me, not blogging was my way of shutting down, i couldn't communicate, just didn't think i could blog about the issues i faced or blog about the silences i encountered before the storm, but the truth is, the more i waited to find balance, the more time i wasted doing nothing or reaching out like i really wanted to. I know of relationships(marriages) that broke up not because the people didn't care enough, or because the devil was out to sabotage them, but simply because they couldn't find time to reach out, too much or too little was always happening and while they were waiting for the right time to iron out their differences, they grew apart and things just didn't matter anymore. 
so dear friend, learn from my error, don't shut down because the storms of life are battering you, don't either because you live what you call a dull, boring existence("nothing EVER happens to me!", i hear you say)
If nothing happens, count yourself blessed that you're passing through life without drama and if you're facing storms repeatedly, well say the serenity prayer and thank God that you're the center of attention, remember He wont give you more than you can handle. Don't just do nothing, do something, pray! eat! love! by all means do anything but shut down!
