Just For Today

I've been taking a class at Universal Class on clutter. There are many classes listed there, some more interesting than others, but I'm taking this class on clutter control because I really want to start the new year off on the right foot. While I think my way of organization is not bad, but I always think that things can be better. Some quotes for "just for today" that I thought could be really useful for everyone--

Just For Today

(Adapted from the original credo of Al-Anon by Dear Abby)
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 lifetime.

Just For Today:  I will be happy.  I will not dwell on thoughts that depress me.  If my mind fills with clouds, I will chase them away and fill it with sunshine.

Just For today:  I will improve my mind.  I will read something that requires effort, thought and concentration.  I will not be a mental loafer.

Just For Today:  I will make a conscious effort to be agreeable.  I will be kind and courteous to those who cross my path, and I'll not speak ill of others.  I will improve my appearance, speak softly, and not interrupt when some 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 quit.  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 if 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.
