God give me strength to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
One of the most beautiful things that we have in this life is the power to make decisions. We choose what we go through or the lack thereof, and from many of these experiences we are able to develop a sense of discernment and wisdom that should help carry us to great heights.
Of course, this is all theoretical, because the end result of the amount of wisdom a person gets from any experience is really up to that individual.
Though life is merely a series of lessons that we should learn from so that we may best be able to understand it, not everyone will learn from every experience, only those who are seeking wisdom will see how important each experience that they go through is.
Always remember that even the smallest of experiences can change and affect your life for years to come, make good decisions that represent who you are, and where you want to be.
