Beginning Today

The secret to life is living it one day at a time.

Our lives are made up of a million moments spent in a million different ways. Some are spent searching for love, peace and harmony. Others are spent surviving day to day. But there is no greater moment than when we find that life, with all its joys and sorrows, is meant to be lived one day at a time.

Each day is new, and living one day at a time enables us to truly enjoy life and live it to the fullest.

Beginning today, I will no longer worry about yesterday. It is in the past and the past will not change. Yet 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.

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 and unselfishly share it to enhance the lives of others.

Beginning today, I will take a moment to step off the beaten path to revel in the mysteries I encounter. I will face challenges with courage and determination. I will overcome barriers that hinder my growth.

Beginning today, I will take life one day at a time, one step at a time. Discouragement will not taint my positive self-image, my desire to succeed, or my capacity to love.

Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. And today? Today is a gift. That's why we call it the present.

People are always saying about the good old days. Why don't they say the good now or present days?
