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 favorite 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 savor all the various flavors 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!
