I got this from another Sparking Friend and thought it was worth sharing.
I will no longer worry about yesterday.
It is in the past and the past will never change.
Only I can change by choosing to do so.
I will no longer worry about tomorrow.
Tomorrow will always be there, waiting for me to
make the most of it. But I cannot make the
most of tomorrow without first
making the most of today.
I will look in the mirror and I will see a
person worthy of my respect and admiration.
This capable person looking back at me is
someone I enjoy spending time with and someone
I would like to get to know better.
I will cherish each moment of my life.
I value this gift bestowed upon me in this world
and I will unselfishly share this gift
with others. I will use this gift to enhance
the lives of others.
I will take a moment to step off the beaten path
and to revel in the mysteries I encounter.
I will face challenges with courage and
determination. I will overcome what barriers
there may be which hinder my quest for
growth and self-improvement.
I will take life one day at a time, one
step at a time. Discouragement will not be
allowed to taint my positive self-image, my desire to
succeed or my capacity to love.
I walk with renewed faith in human kindness.
Regardless of what has gone before, I believe
there is hope for a brighter and better future.
I will open my mind and my heart.
I will welcome new experiences.
I will meet new people.
I will not expect perfection from myself
nor anyone else: perfection does not exist in
an imperfect world. But I will applaud
the attempt to overcome human foibles.
I am responsible for my own happiness and
I will do things that make me happy
admire the beautiful wonders of nature, listen
to my favorite music, pet a kitten or a
puppy, soak in a bubble bath pleasure
can be found in the most simple of gestures.
I will learn something new...I will try something
different; I will savor all the various
flavors life has to offer.
I will change what I can and the rest I will let go.
I will strive to become the best me I can possibly be.
Beginning today ... And every day.
