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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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…
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.
