Struggling

There's a situation in my life that I'm struggling with, something that I really truly need to let go. I'm a huge proponent of letting people live their own lives and make their own mistakes, but sometimes that's really hard to do. Especially when its someone very close to you like, say, a sibling.

A few weeks ago my friend San, from The in Between is Mine, tweeted something that completely resonated with me:

"God grant me the peace to accept things
that don't have anything to do with me."

This is what I'm working for, a peace to accept things as they are in the current moment. My time and energy can be better utilized in other ways. There are some times I think I've reached that place where I've found that peace. Then there are other times I realize I'm failing miserably. Tonight, its the latter.
