This article was first run in 2019, but we feel it’s even more relevant today. We’re sharing it again as a reminder of the power of positivity.
People who have hate and violence in their thinking are, by definition, unhappy.
By taking 5 minutes a day to think about how Shifting Our Attitude to Shift the World can change our lives forever allowing us to become happier no matter what our situation is.
SOME SIMPLE THINGS WE CAN DO FOR TODAY THAT WILL MAKE US HAPPIER
Just for today I will try to live through this day only, not to tackle my whole life problem at once.
Just for today I will be happy. This assumes that what Abraham Lincoln said is true that “most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.” Happiness is from within; it is not a matter of externals.
Just for today I will try to adjust myself to what is and not try to adjust everything to my own desires. I will take my family, my business, and my luck as they come and fit myself to them.
Just for today I will take care of my body. I will exercise it, care for it, nourish it, not abuse it nor neglect it, so that it will be a perfect machine for my bidding.
Just for today I will exercise my soul in three ways; I will do somebody a good term and not get found out. I will do at least two things I don’t want to do, as William James suggests, just for exercise.
Just for today I will look at what I hate and ask why and how that helps me be happier.
Just for today I will be unafraid, especially I will not be afraid to be happy, to enjoy what is beautiful, to love, and to believe that those I love, love me.
