Life skills : No more worrying

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.
