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
someone I enjoy spending time with and
someone I would like to get to know better.
Beginning today 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 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.

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 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 favourite 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 savour all the
various flavours 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 possibly be.

Beginning today ..........
And every day for the rest of my life ......
