*~* 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.
Beginning 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 somone I enjoy spending time with and someone I would like to get to know better.
Beginning today, I will cherish each moment in 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.
Beginning today, 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.
Begiinning 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 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.
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 favorite music...
pleasure can be found in the most simple gestures in life.
Beginning today, I will learn something new; I will try
something different; I will savor all God has to offer me.
I will change what I can, and the rest I will let go.
I will strive to become the best that I can possibly be.
