JUST FOR TODAY

Just for today- I will have program. I may not follow it exactly, but I will have it. I will save myself from two pests: hurry & indecision.

Just for today- I will have a quiet half hour all by myself & relax. During this half hour, 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 & to believe that as I give to the wolrd, so the world will give to me.

Just for today -I will try to live through this day only, & not tackle all my problems at once. I can do something for 12 hours that would appal me if I felt that 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, that "Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be."

Just for today-I will adjust myself to what is, & not try to adjust everything to my own desires. I will take my "luck" as it comes, & fit myself to it.

Jut 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 that requires effort, thought & concentration.

Just for today- I will exrcise my soul in three ways : I will do somebody a good turn, & not get found out; if anybody knows of it, it will not count. I will do at least two things I don't want to do-just for exercise. I willnot 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 but myself.
