God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.


Every now and then, we try to make things work. There are time when we have to try really hard: struggling, giving our best, pushing ourselves to our limit, getting rid of our own doubt. We do both: to not loose hope and to make wishes coming true.


Dancing slowly in a quiet lullaby

Still we failed. Things aren’t just like we thought they’re gonna be. Nothing left, but disappointment, grief and perhaps.. anger. And nothing can’t cure those except the serenity…

We have certainly created man into hardship…

[Quran 90:4]


The key to the serenity is acceptance
