JUST FOR TODAY

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

This was published in our local paper in the Dear Abby section. Abby took it from the original credo fo Al-Anon. It's a great way to start the New Year with healthy resolve!


JUST FOR TODAY

JUST FOR TODAY, I will live through this day only. I will not brood about yesterday or obsess about tomorrow. I will not set far-reaching goals or try to overcome all of my problems at once.

I know that I can do something for 24 hours that would overwhelm me if I had to keep it up for a lifetime.

JUST FOR TODAY, I will be happy. I will not dwell on thoughts that depress me. If my mind fills with clouds, I will chase them away and fill it with sunshine.

JUST FOR TODAY, I will accept what is. I will face reality. I will correct those things that I can correct and accept those I cannot.

JUST FOR TODAY, I will improve my mind. I will read something that requires effort, thought and concentration. I will not be a mental loafer.

JUST FOR TODAY, I will make a conscious effort to be agreeable, I will be kind and courteous to those who cross my path, and Iíll not speak ill of others. I will improve my appearance, speak softly, and not interrupt when someone else is talking. Just for today, I will refrain from improving anybody but myself.

JUST FOR TODAY, I will do something positive to improve my health. If Iím a smoker, Iíll quit. If Iím overweight, I will eat healthfully __ if only for today. And no only that, I will get off the couch and take a brisk walk, even if itís only around the block.

JUST FOR TODAY, I will gather the courage to do what is right and take the responsibility for my own actions.
