Starting Today

Starting today…

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.

Starting today….

I will no longer worry abou tomorrow.

Tomorrow will always be there,

Waiting for me to make the most of it.

But I can not make the most of tomorrow

without making the most of today.

Starting Today…

I will look in the mirror and I will see a person

worthy of my respect and admiration.

This capable woman looking back at me

Is someone I enjoy spending time with

And someone I would enjoy getting along with better.

Starting Today…

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 enchance the life of others.

Starting Today…

I will take a moment to step off the beaten path

And to revel in the mysteries I encounter.

I will face challenges placed before me

With courage and determination.

I will overcome the barriers that may hinder

My quest for growth and self – improvement.

Starting Today…

I will take life on day at a time,

One step at a time.

Discouragement will not be allowed to taint

My positive self imgae, my desire to succeed, or my capacity to love.

Starting Today…

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.

Starting Today…

I will open my mind and 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.

Rather, I will applaud the attempt to overcome human foibles.

Starting Today…

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…

Starting Today…

I will learn something new.

I will try something different.

I will change what I can and the rest I will let go.

I will strive to be the become the best me I can possibly be.

“Pleasure can be found in the most simple of gestures”
