Just for Today
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
Just for Today I will try to live through this day only and not tackle my whole life problem at once. I can do things for twelve hours that would appall me if I had to keep them up for a lifetime.
Just for today I will have a quiet half hour all by myself and relax. During this half hour, I will thank God, so as to get a better perspective on my life.
Just for today I will have a program. I may not follow it exactly, but I will have it. It will eliminate two pests - hurry and indecision.
Just for today I will be agreeable. I will look as well as I can, dress becomingly, talk low, act courteously, be liberal with praise, criticize not one bit nor find fault with anything, and not try to improve or regulate anyone but myself.
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 to it.
Just for today I will try to strengthen my mind. I will learn something useful. I will not be a mental loafer. I will read something that requires effort, thought and concentration.
Just for today I will be happy. Most people are as happy as they make up their minds to be: Happiness comes from within; it is not a matter of externals.
Just for today I will exercise my soul in three ways. I will do something nice for someone and not be found out. 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 unafraid. I will enjoy what is beautiful and believe that as I give to the world, so the world will give to me.
