Mark Olmsted and This I Believe

This I Believe essayist Mark Olmsted

Each week, we’ll hear a new This I Believe essay – this week by Mark Olmsted. As a recovering addict, he is familiar with the serenity
prayer.  But when he got fed up with all the litter in his neighborhood,
Olmsted realized there is a difference between the things you must
accept and the things you can actually change. He undertook keeping his neighborhood clean as part of his recovery regimen from drug addiction.

Olmsted is an editor and blogger, and he lectures on “The Six Spiritual Principles of Picking Up Trash.”
