just ofr today poem to save

SpRK FIREND POSTED AND i JUST HAD TO KEEP. MY ABOUT ME WAS FULL SO PUT IT HERE.


JUST FOR TODAY
I will try to live through this day only
and not tackle my whole life problem at once.
I can do something for twelve 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 up their minds 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 to strengthen my mind.
I will study. I will not be a mental loafer.
I will read something that requires
mental effort 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 anybody 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 today I will not show it.

JUST FOR TODAY
I will be agreeable,
will look as well as I can,
dress becomingly, talk low,
act courteously, criticize not one bit,
not find fault with anything
and not try to improve or regulate
anybody except myself.

JUST FOR TODAY
I will have a program -
I may not be able to follow it exactly,
but I will have it.
I will save myself from two pests:
hurry and indecision.

JUST FOR TODAY
I will have a quiet half hour
all to myself and relax.
During this half hour, sometime,
I will try to get a better perspective of my life.

JUST FOR TODAY
I will be unafraid,
especially I will not be afraid
to enjoy what is beautiful,
and to believe that as I give to the world,
so the world gives to me.
