Just For Today I Will...

The daily topic to journal about today over at Mayas Mom is this...Just for today I will...and I have a little poem that I have had on my wall forever and it is titled Just For Today. How perfect does that fit? So here goes...

Just For Today...

Just for today I will live through the next 12 hours and not tackle my entire life's problems at once.

Just for today I will improve my mind. I will learn something useful. I will read something that requires effort, thought and concentration.

Just for today I will be agreeable, I will look my best, I will speak in a well modulated voice, and I will be courteous and considerate.

Just for today I will not find fault with friend, relative or colleague. I will not try to change anyone but myself.

Just for today I will have a program. I might not follow it exactly, but I will have it. I will save myself from two enemies- hurry and indecision.

Just for today I will exercise my character in three ways. I will do a good turn and keep it a secret. If anyone finds out it doesn't count.

Just for today I will do two things I don't want to do, just for the discipline.

Just for today I will be unafraid. Especially will I be unafraid to enjoy what is beautiful and believe that as I give to the world, the world will give to me.

Thanks for the post Crystal - I've always loved this poem. I first came across it in Al-Anon but have seen it lots of other places too.
