Yesterday turned out to be one of the worst days I have ever had at work. Terrible. I was 9 different kinds of mad with nowhere to go with it! Here are two things that I say to myself, and when I need a pep talk. I am hoping that things will be better when I walk in this morning.

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.

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must,
but don't you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up, though the pace seems slow -
You might succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer thanIt seems
to a faint and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor's cup.
And he learned too late,
when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out -
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt -
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit -
It's when things seem worst that you mustn't quit.-
