Just For Today
Just for Today I will try to live through this day only and not tackle my whole life problem at once. I can do something for twelve hours that appals me for I do not have to keep it up for a lifetime.
Just for Today I will be happy. Most folks are as happy as they make up their mind to be.
Just for Today I will adjust myself to what is and not adjust everything to my own ideas. I will take my ‘luck’ as it comes and fit myself to it.
Just for Today I will try to strengthen my mind. I will study. I will learn something useful. I will not be a mental loafer. I will read something which requires effort, thought and concentration.
Just for Today I will exercise my soul in three ways. I will do somebody a good turn without letting them know of it. If they find out it will not count. I will do at least two things I do not want to do just for exercise. I will not show my feelings are hurt. They may be hurt but I will not show it.
Just for Today I will be agreeable. I will look as well as I can, dress becomingly, talk low, act courteously, criticise not one bit, not find fault with anyone and not try to regulate or improve anyone except myself.
Just for Today I will have a programme. I may not keep to it exactly but I will have it. I will save myself from those two pests – hurry and indecision.
Just for Today I will have a quiet half-hour all by myself and relax. During this time, sometime, I will try to get a better perspective of my life.
Just for Today I will be unafraid. Especially I will not be afraid to enjoy what is beautiful and to believe that as I give to the world, so the world will give to me.
