Default Just For Today

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 12 hours that would appall me it 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 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 3 ways. I will do somebody a good turn, and not get found out; it anybody knows of it, it will not count. I will do at least 2 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. I 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 follow it exactly, but I will have it. I will save myself from 2 pests hurry and indecision.
Just for Today I will have a quiet half hour all by myself, and relax. During this half hour, some time, 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, & to believe that as I give to the world, so the world will give to me.
