Dear Annabella,

Good article, good advice. I try to live by those principles as much as possible, but one of them is harder for me than others — to accept calmly things I cannot change. I mean, I accept them, of course, there are very few things I CAN actually change other than myself. I just don’t do it calmly. Or quietly. I’m doing better on this than I did a few years ago, but far from great.

Oh well, more work on this from me.
