e made me feel loved and protected. I thought I would share these words of wisdom with you. If you struggle with anxiety or are a worrier, may these words of wisdom bless and encourge you today!
Just for Today

Just for today – I will improve my mind. I will elarn something useful. I will read something that required effort, thought and concentration.
Just for today – I will be agreeable. I will look my best, speak in a well-modulated voice, be courteous and considerate.
Just for today – I will not find fault with friend, relative or colleague. I will not try to change or improve anyone but myself.
Just for today – I will have a program. I might not follow it, but I will have it. I will save myself from two enemies – hurry and indecision.
Just for today – I will do a good turn and keep it a secret. If anyone finds out, it won’t count.
Just for today – I will do two things I don’t want to do, just for the exercise.
