Two days to forget

There are two days in every week we should not worry about, two days that should be kept free from fear and apprehension.

One is yesterday, with its mistakes and cares, its faults and blunders, its aches and pains.

Yesterday has passed, forever beyond our control. All the money in the world cannot bring back yesterday. We cannot undo a single act we performed. Nor can we erase a single word we've said - yesterday is gone.

The other day we shouldn't worry about is tomorrow, with its impossible. Tomorrow is beyond our control. Tomorrow's sun will rise either in splendor or behind a mask of clouds but it will rise. And until it does, we have no stake in tomorrow, for it is yet unborn.

Happy and Healthy Thoughts

This list of Happy and Healthy Thoughts was my starting point. Reading this daily was like taking baby steps. However, as I practiced daily reading and reinforcing new thought patterns I began to feel better. I posted a copy on my refrigerator, in the bathroom and I still carry a copy in my Day timer. Now, when I catch myself "dumping" on me, I try to correct those self-defeating thoughts.

Read this everyday. Post them where you can see them. Carry a copy in your organizer, purse or pocket. It will lift your spirits.

I am a unique and precious human being, always doing the best I can, always growing in wisdom and love.

I don't need to prove myself to anyone, not even to myself, for I know that I am perfectly fine as I am.

I make my own decisions and assume responsibility for any mistakes. However, I refuse to feel shame or guilt about them. I do the best I can, and this 100 percent is good enough.
I am not my actions, I am the actor. My actions may be good or bad. That does not make me good or bad.

Whenever I am tempted to punish myself, I remember to be kind and gentle instead. I know that in order to be the best I can be, I need forgiveness and understanding.

I know that it is okay to need. I try to keep in touch with my needs so that I can respond to them.

I know that others cannot be expected to read my mind or to guess my needs. In fairness to them and to me, I ask for what I need.

I deserve to be appreciated. When others show their appreciation, I embrace it with open arms. I never try to deny or diminish my value.

I live one day at a time and do first things first.

I take great pride in what I do, in what I value and in the way I live for I truly believe in myself.

My mistakes and nonsuccess do not make me aloes, a failure, or whatever. They only prove that I am imperfect, that is human. It is wonderful to be human.

I love myself, absolutely and unconditionally, for that is what I truly need and deserve.
