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
some things for twelve hours that would appall me if I
felt that I had to keep them up for a lifetime.


Just for today,


I will be happy. This assumes what
Abraham Lincoln said is true. "Most folks are about as
happy as they make up their minds to be." Happiness is
from within and not a matter of externals.


Just for today,


I will take care of my body. I will exercise
it, care for it, and nourish it along lines best known
to modern science for keeping it healthy so that it
will be a perfect machine for my will.


Just for today,


I will strengthen my mind. I will learn
something useful and will study something that
challenges my mental ability. I will not be a mental
loafer all day. I will read something that requires
thought and concentration.


Just for today,


I will exercise my soul in at least three ways
Namely, I will do somebody a good turn and not
brag about it. In fact, I will seek to keep myself
from view. I will do what Will James once suggested:
Do at least two things that I do not want to do just
for exercise. And then, I will not show anyone that
my feelings are hurt, if in the course of the day
somebody hurts them.


Just for today,


I will be agreeable. I will look as well as
I can, dress as becomingly as possible, talk low,
act courteously not withholding a word of praise,
will not criticize one bit, and not find fault with
anything, and not try to regulate or improve anyone.


Just for today,


I will have a program. I will write down
just what I expect to do each hour of the day. I may
not follow it exactly, but I will have it and if I
can follow it somewhat, it will save me from two
modern sins. . .hurry and indecision.


Just for today,


I will have a quiet hour, sometime, and will
review my day and I will think of God, so as to give
a little Perspective to my life.


Just for today,


I will be unafraid. I will keep the door shut
to fear. Especially will I be unafraid to be happy, to
enjoy the beautiful, to love and to believe that those
I love, love me.
