Beginning Today

Beginning today I will no longer worry about yesterday.

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 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 success or my capacity to love.  


Beginning today I will 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 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.
