Dear Love Lights,  

Iíve been running with the topic of ďencouragementĒ all week long Ė whether I realize it or not at the time often what I am promoting is what I am needing in that moment. 

Long story short Iíve had a great week putting out Love, energy and encouragement. Yesterday while cheering a friend I was reminded of a prayer I carry called Just for Today. Itís in my wallet and my daily work book -  Iíve seen it so much that I donít see it anymore!!!

Iíd like to share it with you Ė use it to encourage yourself when you need it. Pass it on to a friend. Remember that we all go through difficult times BUT we donít all go through them at the same time!

Thatís the beauty of being part of a community. In a community thereís always someone up to cheer us up when weíre down. In a community sometimes we get to be the one sharing a joke, encouragement, ease and confidence ... Sometimes we are the wind beneath their wings ... what a gift. 

Love on! Viveca

Just For Today

Just for today I will try to live through this day only & not tackle my whole life problem at once. I can do something for twelve hours that would appall me if I felt that I had to keep it up for a lifetime.

Just for today I will be happy. This assumes to be true what Abraham Lincoln said, that ďMost folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be.Ē

Just for today I will adjust myself to what is & not try to adjust everything else to my desires. I will take my ďluckĒ as it comes & fit myself into it.

Just for today I will try to strengthen my mind. I will study; I will learn something useful; I will not be a mental loafer; I will read something that requires effort, thought & concentration.

Just for today I will exercise my soul in three ways: I will do somebody a good turn & not get found out; if anybody knows of it, it will not count; I will do at least two things I donít want to doĖjust for exercise. I will not show anyone that my feelings are hurt; they may be hurt, but today I will not show it.

Just for today I will be agreeable. I will look as good as I can, dress becomingly, talk low, act courteously, criticize not one bit, not find fault with anything & not try to improve or regulate anybody except myself.

Just for today I will have a program. I may not follow it exactly, but I will have it. I will save myself from two pests: hurry & indecision.

Just for today I will have a quiet half hour all by myself & relax. During this half hour, sometime, I will try to get a better perspective on my life.

Just for today I will be unafraid. I will enjoy that which is beautiful & will believe that as I give to the world, so the world will give to me.
