This is Today!

This is Today

Today is here. I willl begin with a smile
And resolve to be agreeable. I will not
Criticize. I refuse to waste the valuable
Time God has given me.

Today has one thing in which I know
I am equal with others ---time. All of us
Draw the same salary in seconds, minutes
And hours.

Today I will not waste my time,
Because the minutes I wasted yesterday
Are lost as a vanished thought.

Today I refuse to spend time worrying
About what might happen. I am going to
Spend my time making things happen.

Today I am determined to study to
Improve myself, for tomorrow I may be
Found needed, and I must not be found

Today I begin by doing and not
Wasting my time. In one week I will be
Miles beyond the person I am today.

Today I will not imagine what I would
Do if things were different. They are not
Different. I will make a success with
What materials I have.

Today I will Stop saying “If I had time
.....”, for I never will “find time” for
Anything. If I want time, I must make it.

Today I will act toward other people as
Though this may be my last day on earth.
I will not wait for tomorrow. Tomorrow
Never comes.

Have a Beautiful Day!
