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 12 hours that would appall me if I felt 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: “Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.”

Just for today I will try to strengthen my mind. I will learn something that requires effort, thought and concentration.

Just for today I will adjust myself to what is; and I will not keep trying to adjust everything else to my own desires.

Just for today I will exercise my soul in three ways: I will do somebody a good turn, and not get found out. I will do at least two things I don’t want to do - just for exercise. And today, if my feelings are hurt, I will not show it to anyone.

Just for today I will look as well as I can dress becomingly, talk low, act courteously, criticize not one bit, and not try to improve or regulate anybody except myself.

Just for today I will have a program. I may not follow it exactly, 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 for meditation and relaxation. During this half hour 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.
