Beginning Today

Beginning today I will no longer worry about yesterday.
It is in the past and the past will never change.
Only I can change by choosing to do so.

Beginning today I will no longer worry about tomorrow.
Tomorrow will always be there, waiting for me
to make the most of it.
But I cannot make the most of tomorrow without first
making the most of today.

Beginning today I will look in the mirror and I will
see a person worthy of my respect and admiration.
This capable person looking back at me is someone
I enjoy spending time with and someone I would
like to get to know better.

Beginning today I will cherish each moment of my life.
I value this gift bestowed upon me in this world and I will
unselfishly share this gift with others.
I will use this gift to enhance the lives of others.

Beginning today I will take a moment to step
off the beaten path and to revel in the mysteries I encounter.
I will face challenges with courage and determination.
I will overcome what barriers there may be which
hinder my quest for growth and self-improvement.

Beginning today I will take life one day at a time,
one step at a time.
Discouragement will not be allowed to taint my
positive self-image, my desire to succeed or my capacity to love.

Beginning today I walk with renewed faith in human kindness.
Regardless of what has gone before,
I believe there is hope
for a brighter and better future.

Beginning today I will open my mind and my heart.
I will welcome new experiences.
I will meet new people.
I will not expect perfection from myself nor anyone else:
perfection does not exist in an imperfect world.
But I will applaud the attempt to overcome human foibles.

Beginning today I am responsible for my own
happiness and I will do things that make me happy . . .
admire the beautiful wonders of nature, listen
to my favorite music, pet a kitten or a puppy, soak in a
bath . . .pleasure can be found in the most simple
of gestures.

Beginning today I will learn something new;
I will try something different;
I will savor all the various flavors life has to offer.
I will change what I can and the rest I will let go.
I will strive to become the best me I can possibly be. (one that pleases,God.connie)
Beginning today. And every day.Author unknown

We each have days that we would like a do-over or a new beginning. Well, with each new sunrise, we have a brand new day. It is all sparkling and clean and we can use it how ever we want.

We can stick to our goals or say "just forget it today", I am going to eat what I want, when I want and how much, I want. Now, you tell me, which one of the attitudes will get us to where we are going? I have had far too many of those "do not care" days, as far as my weight is concerned. It has been only since I started caring and seeking my help from the Lord that I have seen progress.

If we keep going as we want and the years pass, there is a debt that will have to be paid.It can come in the form of diabetes, heart disease, kidney problem,etc. It will come, there is no doubt about it. I am living prof:(. Don't wait to wake up like I did one day and realize "this don't just happen to others, I am no one special, My body has rules to go by also."

1Cr 3:16... Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
1Cr 3:17...If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which [temple] ye are.

These verses apply to us, just as they do to others.So, today is a new beginning, IF, we use it as such.TODAY WE WILL BEGIN ANEW, BOTH YOU AND I. connie

P.S. This not only applies to eating but to drinking, drugs, and all the other abusive things we can do to our bodies.
