I have been starting each intention with "Just for today", but this morning those words didn't feel like mine. There is a reading in the 12-step meeting that I used to attend called "Just for today", so I felt like I was borrowing it. So I've changed the beginning to "on this day".
I have no idea how long I will continue this practice, but for now it feels right and it has really been helpful in getting my day started on an uplifting and positive note. My world is a better place when I start the day feeling shiny.
On This Day
On this day, I will have my eyes open, so that I can see all that is good around me.
I will not let things get complicated. I will let the day unfold, rather than force it to bend my way.
I will make sure that my needs are being met. I will value myself enough to know that self-care is important to being happy, joyous and free.
I can let those around me be who they are. I can remove my expectations and just embrace the differences that make us all the spiritual beings that we are.
On this day, I will allow my truest self to shine. I can look within, instead of towards others, to define who I am.
I will be free of fear, anger & resentment. I will choose to let Love lead me through each moment.
I will live in the moment. No wondering about tomorrow or pondering yesterday. Accepting that I am right where I need to be.
I choose to let change happen. I choose to step back and let life happen the way the Divine has planned. I choose to trust.
On this day, I'm going to be gentle with myself and replace the word "should" with the word "could".
Have a shiny day!!
Just my thoughts.
