Just for Today
Just for today I will live through this say only, and tackle my problems one at a time.
Just for today I will be happy. Abraham Lincoln said, “Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.”
Just for today I will adjust myself to what is, rather than try to adjust everything else to my desires. I will be open to new ways of thinking and being.
Just for today I will strengthen my mind. I will learn something useful. I will read something that requires effort, thought, and concentration.
Just for today I will expand my spiritual connection. I will share generously. I will recognize another being, with a smile, glance or kind word.
Just for today I will be agreeable. I will look my best. I will practice acceptance of myself, first and each person I meet. I will honor each person’s path as their own and walk my path free of criticism or judgment.
Just for today I will have a goal with objectives and tasks toward completion. Even in distraction I will have a plan and a way to complete it.
Just for today I will set aside quiet time. I will disconnect from the noise of the world – television, phones, internet, and sound – and spent time with myself and my thoughts. I will relax and get perspective on my life.
Just for today I will live fearlessly. I will enjoy what is beautiful. I will accept all the good present in my life and return good into the world.
Just for today I will ask, “How can I be more loving? How can I be more kind?”
