today, I will no longer worry about yesterday. It is in the past and the past
will never change.
Only I can change by choosing to do so.
today, I will no longer worry about tomorrow. Tomorrow will always be there,
waiting for me to make
the most of it. But I cannot make the most of tomorrow without first making the most of today.
today, I will look in the mirror and I will see a person worthy of my respect
and admiration. This capable person looking back at me is someone I enjoy
spending time with and someone I would like to get to know better.
today, I will cherish each moment of my life. I value the gift bestowed upon me
in this world
and I will unselfishly share this gift with others.
today, I will take a moment to step off the beaten path and to revel in the
mysteries I encounter.
I will face challenges with courage and determination. I will overcome what barriers there may be
which hinder my quest for growth and self- improvement.
today, I will take life one day at a time, one-step at a time. Discouragement
will not be
allowed to taint my positive self-image, my desire to succeed or my capacity to love.
today, I walk with renewed faith in human kindness. Regardless of what has gone
I believe there is hope for a brighter and better future.
today, I will open my mind and my heart. I will welcome new experiences. I will
meet new people.
I will not expect perfection from myself nor anyone else: perfection does not exist in an imperfect world.
But I will applaud the attempt to overcome human foibles.
today I am responsible for my own happiness and I will do things that make me
admire the beautiful wonders of nature, listen to my favorite music, pet a kitten or a puppy, soak in a bubble bath... Pleasure can be found in the most simple of gestures.
today, I will learn something new; I will try something different; I will savor
all the various flavors life
has to offer. I will change what I can and the rest I will let go. I will strive to become the best me I can possibly be.
