Today is here. I will 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 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 needed,
and I must not be found lacking.
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. I will make a success with what material I have.
Today I will stop saying, “if I find time,” or “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 thought this will be my last day on earth. I will not wait for tomorrow. Tomorrow never comes.
This was given to me years ago. I keep it on my refrigerator. This evening, as I was preparing dinner, I stopped and read it. It was truly the message I needed this evening. I felt led to pass this on and share with my readers.
