Wear it with wisdom…

October 16, 2009

Wisdom; the quality or state of being wise; knowledge of what is true or right coupled with just judgment as to action; sagacity, discernment, or insight. With this, we bring you Lisa Stewart’s, “Serenity” bracelet. It can be worn as a cuff, a simple statement piece and a daily mantra! Stewart has been on the scene for a while, bringing us amazing jewels inspired by clean lines, simplistic design and modern architecture.

All religions aside, the ancient serenity prayer is a powerful mantra. A true awakening, the realization that we cannot change people, plab100bsces and things but we can change our thinking and our perceptions. Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the WISDOM to know the difference. It is a fundamental and central part of ancient Greco-Roman Stoic philosophy. In ancient Greek (in the Stoic literature), it is called the distinction between ta ouk eph’ hemin and ta eph’ hemin, that is, read literally, “things not up to us” vs. “things up to us.”
