JUST FOR TODAY

JUST FOR TODAY

A guide on how to fight for our happiness and maintain a cheerful mental attitude!

  1. Just for today I will be happy. You are as happy as you make up your mind for happiness is from within.
  2. Just for today I will try to adjust myself to what is, and not try to adjust everything to my own desires. I will take my family, my business and my luck as they come and fit myself to them.
  3. Just for today I will take care of my body. I will exercise, care for it, nourish it, not abuse it nor neglect it, so that it will be a perfect machine for my bidding.
  4. 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.
  5. Just for today I will exercise myself in three ways; I will do somebody a good turn and not be found out. I will do at least two positive things I don’t want to do.
  6. Just for today I will be agreeable. I will look as well as I can, dress becomingly as possible, talk low, act courteously, be liberal with praise, criticize not at all, nor find fault with anything and not try to regulate nor improve anyone.
  7. Just for today I will try to live through this day only, not to tackle my whole life problems at once. I can do things for twelve hours that would appall me if I had to keep them up for a lifetime.
  8. Just for today I will have a program. I will write down what I expect to do every hour. I may not follow it exactly, but I will have it. It will eliminate two pests, hurrying and indecision.
  9. Just for today I will have a quiet half hour all by myself and relax. In this half hour sometimes I will think of God, so as to get a little more perspective into my life.
  10. Just for today I will be unafraid, especially I will not be afraid to be happy, to enjoy what is beautiful, to love, and to believe that those I love, love me.

  1. I have learnt in life that mortals on earth are like people who go to the shopping mall to Buy things and head back home once the are done. So I have to leave my the moment and make the best use of it as much as I can!
