Just for Today

With the understanding that addiction is a disease and the realization that we are powerless over it as well as over people's lives, we are ready to do something useful and constructive with our own.

Then, and only then can we be of any help to others.

Just for Today

Post by roadrunner » Thu Dec 07, 2017 9:40 am

Every morning I journal and at the top of the page I write what I'm feeling - usually its gratitude. But I have trouble starting my day - doing chores etc. House is a mess. So today I decided I need to be happy - so I wrote Happy at the top of the page. I remembered the Just for Today bookmark and remembered Lincoln saying "most people are as happy as they make themselves out to be." So "Just For Today" - I will be happy. I'm repeating that every hour on the hour. I only have to do this "just for Today" - tomorrow I can do something else.
So "Just for Today" - what are you going to do?

Thank you for this gentle reminder. The last few days I have been feeling out of sorts, and I am not sure of the reason. God works in amazing ways. I needed to hear this now and He brought me here to this wonderful forum. So, just for today I will be happy...I plan on repeating it tomorrow :) .

Listen to learn and share to heal.

Hugs and many blessings to you!

What a wonderful way to start the day
I'm right there with ya
I'm choosing happy jft
One of the few things I can control
my choices and my focus
Soo much easier to choose happy when my focus is on Me and the next best thing for Me
rather than focusing on my AD

Cheers!

Thank you for reminding me to take a look at my JFT bookmark. I have been neglecting to go back and read it. JFT I will be agreeable. I will not criticize or find fault in others. I will open my eyes to see the best in those around me and in myself!

Just for today I will let go of my fear and anxiety so that I can enjoy my time with my children despite the circumstances we find ourselves in. If my fears and anxieties are to come true then I will handle it as it happens, but I will not live with those things weighing me down, just for today at least.

Just for today...
I will remember to live my life from a place of gratitude.
To even be grateful for the good things that have somehow come about from the worst.
