why am I here?

I came into this world not chiefly to make a good place to live in, but to live in it, be it good or bad.  

HENRY DAVID THOREAU from Walden

We must have bad in order to have good.  We must have darkness to have light, ugliness to have beauty, injustice to have justice, sadness to have joy, despair to have hope, hatred to have love, injury to have forgiveness.  Choose to live life in acceptance of all of it – good and bad.  Making this world a better place to live happens when we serenely accept life on life’s terms.

Grant me the serenity to accept that which I cannot change, courage to change that which I should change and the wisdom to know the difference.
