Beginning today...

Beginning 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.

Beginning today...
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.

Beginnig 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.

Beginning today...
I will cherish each momemnt of my life.
I value this gift betowed 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.

Beginning today...
I will take a momemnt 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.

Beginning today...
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.

Beginning 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.

Beginning today...
I will open my mind and my hearth.
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.

Beginning 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 favourtie music,
pet a kitten or a puppy, soak in a bubble bath...
Pleasure can be found in the most simple of gestures.

Beginning today...
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 possible be.

Begnning today.... And Every Day
