let’s talk about tattooing the serenity prayer on yourself

Let’s chat about the Serenity Prayer, shall we? You probably already know the whole thing:

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.

I’d say the basic gist of this is pretty important to your happiness – you have to know what’s up to you and what isn’t, and you best be able to reconcile yourself with all the shit that’s wildly beyond your control because it will fuck you up regardless. If you want to tattoo this on yourself, I understand.

Let’s take a gander at this tattoo, done by Collin Kasyan:

That is how you do a Serenity Prayer tattoo. It looks classy, and most importantly nothing has been spelled incorrectly. You’d think that last part would be easy to do, since the Serenity Prayer is all over the internet, you can listen to the whole thing with an inspirational video on YouTube, and it even has its own Wikipedia entry. Copies of this ABOUND. It should be really, really, really astonishingly difficult to fuck this up, right?

 

 

Good grief. Let’s examine how drastically these idiots have changed the sentiment of their tattoos by choosing the wrong homonym.

accept: to agree or consent to; accede
except: not including, other than

God, grant me the serenity to not include the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.

Keep up the good work guys.

 

Verdict: not fuckable
