Thought for today: The notion of a Higher Power is not a set religious concept, but the idea of "God as we know him (or her or it.)" It does not even have to be a God if that does not conform to your belief system. It's simply the notion that some power greater than you (and separate from you) has the ability to take on your problems and struggles. Sometimes the best thing to do, when we come to the conclusion that we cannot control a situation, is to give up the attempt to control it and instead focus on controlling and changing the things within our power: namely our own thoughts, habits and behaviors.
