Thoughts to Live By-Just for Today

Just for today..

I will live through this day only, and not set far-reaching goals to try to overcome  all my problems at once.

Just for today…

I will be happy. I will not dwell on thoughts that depress me. I will replace them with happy thoughts.

Just for today..

I will adjust myself to what is. I will face reality. I will correct those things that I can correct and except those things I cannot correct.

Just for today..

I will do something positive to improve my health. If I’m a smoker, I’ll try to cut down. If I’m overweight, I’ll eat nothing I know is fattening, and I’ll force myself to exercise.

Just for today..

I will be totally honest. If someone asks me something I don’t know, I’ll simply say “I don’t know.”

Just for today..

I’ll do something I’ve been putting off for a long time. I’ll finally write that letter, make that phone call, clean that closet or straighten out those dresser drawers.

Just for today..

before I speak  I will ask myself, “Is it true? Is it kind?.” And if the answer to either of those questions is negative, I won’t say it.

Just for today..

I will make a conscious effort to be agreeable. I will look as good as I can, talk softly, act courteously and not interrupt someone else.

Just for today..

I will have a program, I may not follow it exactly, but I will have it, thereby saving myself from two pest, hurry and indecision.

Just for today,,

I will have a quiet half-hour to relax alone. During this time I will reflect on my behavior and get a better perspective on my life.

Just for today..

I will be unafraid. I will gather the courage to do what is right and take the responsibility for my own actions.
