Just for Today…

Just for today: I will try to live through this day only,
and not tackle all my problems at once.
I can do something for twelve hours that would appall me
if I felt that I had to keep it up for a lifetime.

Just for today: I will be happy.
This assume t be true what Abraham Lincoln said,
“Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be.”

Just for today: I will adjust myself to what is,
and not try to adjust everything to my own desires.
I will take my *luck* as it comes, and fit myself into it.

Just for today:I will try to strengthen my mind.
I will study. I will not be a mental loafer.
I will read something that requires effort.
Thought and concentration.

Just for today: I will exercise my soul in three ways:
it will do somebody a good turn and not get found out;
if anybody know of it, it will not count.
I will do at least two things I don’t want to do– just for exercise.
I will not show anyone that my feelings are hurt: they may
be hurt but today I will not show it.

Just for today: I will be agreeable.
I will look as well as I can, dress becomingly,
keep my voice low,be courteous,criticize not one bit.
I won’t find fault with anything, nor try to improve or regulate
anybody else but 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’s.

Just for today: I will have a quiet half hour
all by myself, and relax.
During this half hour,
sometime I will try to get a better perspective of my life.

Just for today: I will be un-afraid.
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 back to me.

    I was looking at Kelsie’s picture- what a darling! She is changing so much and getting so cute. I heard here scream at Nana to get down yesterday- talk about "strong willed"! Give her a great big kiss and hug (and my little man too).

    Just for today- I wish I felt well- I have been to the doctor, put on meds and an inhaler and I still feel like crap. This is going on 2 weeks, last night I came home from work and was asleep by 6:30! I just want to feel better.
