Just For Today

I found this on a 12-step website this morning and thought we can use it for daily living

“Given the current political environment and the economy, we can learn from this teaching.

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 twelve hours that appals me for I do not have to keep it up for a lifetime.

Just for Today I will be happy. Most folks are as happy as they make up their mind to be.

Just for Today I will adjust myself to what is and not adjust everything to my own ideas. I will take my ‘luck’ as it comes and fit myself to it.

Just for Today I will try to strengthen my mind. I will study. I will learn something useful. I will not be a mental loafer. I will read something which requires effort, thought and concentration.

Just for Today I will exercise my soul in three ways. I will do somebody a good turn without letting them know of it. If they find out it will not count. I will do at least two things I do not want to do just for exercise. I will not show my feelings are hurt. They may be hurt but 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, criticise not one bit, not find fault with anyone and not try to regulate or improve anyone except myself.

Just for Today I will have a programme. I may not keep to it exactly but I will have it. I will save myself from those two pests – hurry and indecision.

Just for Today I will have a quiet half-hour all by myself and relax. During this time, 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 is beautiful and to believe that as I give to the world, so the world will give to me
