My Papaw's Wisdom

As a little girl, I was anxious and a worrier. My papaw knew this about me and sent me some words of wisdom. He typed them on his old black typewriter, and I now keep them on my fridge. I loved and adored my papaw. H
e made me feel loved and protected. I thought I would share these words of wisdom with you. If you struggle with anxiety or are a worrier, may these words of wisdom bless and encourge you today!

Just for Today
Just for today - I will live through the next 12 hours and not try to tackle all of life's problems.
Just for today - I will improve my mind. I will elarn something useful. I will read something that required effort, thought and concentration.
Just for today - I will be agreeable. I will look my best, speak in a well-modulated voice, be courteous and considerate.
Just for today - I will not find fault with friend, relative or colleague. I will not try to change or improve anyone but myself.
Just for today - I will have a program. I might not follow it, but I will have it. I will save myself from two enemies - hurry and indecision.
Just for today - I will do a good turn and keep it a secret. If anyone finds out, it won't count.
Just for today - I will do two things I don't want to do, just for the exercise.
