Just for today i will have the attitude of gratitude.
To live in gratitude is to live in abundance. When we dwell on what we don't have we continue to experience not having. One must live in a state of gratitude, consciously appreciating & thanking the many blessings of life.
Just for today, i will not worry:
Negative thoughts indicate a lack of faith & hinder the outcome of our efforts. Live each day to the best of your ability & surrender yourself to the Higher Self. A positive frame of mind makes the situation appear far better than they would otherwise be..
Just for today i will not anger:
Anger comes up when there is fear, when one starts feeling helpless and out of control. The best way to handle it is not to repress it but rather by feeling it fully and becoming fully aware of our actions to others and thereby, over a period of time learning to master our emotions. People who know and have developed the ability to handle anger, have made their lives happy.
Just for today i will do my work honestly:
Doing the work honestly and facing the truth in all things brings a peace of mind and calmness which can transform the person and raise his self- esteem.
Just for today I will show respect for every living thing:
To help in healing the whole world and developing a loving atmosphere, we must show respect to all living things.
