JUST FOR TODAY
JUST FOR TODAY I will try to live through this day only and not tackle my whole life problem(s) at once. I can do something for twelve hours that would appall me if I felt that I had to keep it up for a lifetime.
JUST FOR TODAY I will be happy. This assumes to be true what Abraham Lincoln said, that," Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be."
JUST FOR TODAY I will adjust myself to what is, and not try toadjust everything to my own desires. I will not be a mental loafer. I will read something that requires effort, thought and concentration.
JUST FOR TODAY I will exercise my soul in three ways: I will do somebody a good turn, and not get found out; if anybody knows of it, it will not count. I will do at least two things I don't want to do - just for exercise; I will not show anyone that my feelings are hurt, they may be hurt, but today 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, criticize not one bit, not find fault with anything and not try to improve or regulate anybody except myself.
JUST FOR TODAY I will have a program. I may not follow itexactly, but I will have it. I will save myself from two pests: hurry and indecision.
JUST FOR TODAY I will have a quiet half hour all by myself, and relax. During this half hour, 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 if beautiful, and to believe that as I give to the world, so the world will give to me.
