Just For Today

Just for today I will try to live through this day only, and not tackle all my problems at once.  I can do something for 12 hours that would appall 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 their minds up to be.’

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 and 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 and concentration.

Just for today I will exercise my soul in three ways: I will do somebody a good turn, and not get found out; if anyone knows of it it will not count. I will do at least two things I do not want to do – just for exercise. I will not show anyone that my feelings are hurt; they may be hurt but just for today I will not show it.

Just for today I will be agreeable. I will look as well as I can, dress becoming, 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.

Just for today was pulled from Alanon.org.

What will you do just for today?

  1. While I applaud the following sentiment, I would require a massive personality overhaul and a complete “sarcasm-ectomy” in order to achieve it: “Just for today I will be agreeable. I will look as well as I can, dress becoming, 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.”
