Just for Today
I will try to live through this day only and not
tackle my problems all at once.
I will be happy. Assuming to be true what Abraham Lincoln
said, that "Most folks are as happy as they make up
their minds to be."
I will adjust myself to what is and not try to adjust everything else to my desires. I will take my "luck" as it comes and fit myself into it.
I will try to strengthen my mind. I will learn something useful; I will read something that requires effort,
thought and concentration.
I will exercise my soul: I will do somebody a good turn;
if anybody knows of it, it will not count. I will not show anyone that my feelings are hurt; they may be hurt,
but today I will not show it.
I will be agreeable. I will look as good as I can, talk low, act courteously, criticize not one bit, not find fault with anything and not try to improve or regulate
anybody except myself.
