My mom found this article in the paper and photocopied it for me and my brother. She tries to makes us stay positive and think positive. She actually keeps the original with her daily, folded up in her wallet. We loved this article and look at it often. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do...
Small steps to big change
Just for today: I will live through this day only. I will not brood about yesterday or obsess about tomorrow. I will not set far-reaching goals or try to overcome all of my problems at once.
I know that I can do something for 24 hours that would overwhelm me if I had to keep it up for a life time.
Just for today: I will be happy. I will not dwell on thoughts that depress me.
Just for today: I will accept what is. I will face realiy. I will correct those things I can correct and accept those I cannot.
Just for today: I will improve my mind. I will read something that requires concentration.
Just for today: I will make a conscious effort to be agreeable. I will be kind and couteous to those who cross my path, and I’ll not speak ill of others. I will speak softly and not interrupt when someone else is talking, Just for today, I will refrain from improving anybody but myself.
Just for today: I will do something positive to improve my health. If I’m a smoker, I’ll quite. If I am overweight, I will eat healthfully-if only just for today. And not only that, I will get off the couch and take a brisk walk, even it’s only around the block.
Just for today: I will gather the courage to do what is right and take responsibility for my own actions.
Love you Mom and Ryan!!
