10 Rules for Staring New Day


1. TODAY I WILL NOT STRIKE BACK:

 

If someone is rude, if someone is impatient, if someone is unkind. I will not respond in a like manner.

 

2. TODAY I WILL ASK GOD TO BLESS MY “ENEMY”:

 

If I come across someone who treats me harshly or unfairly, I will quietly ask God to bless that individual. I understand the “enemy” could be a family member, neighbor, co-worker, or a stranger.

 

3. TODAY I WILL BE CAREFUL ABOUT WHAT I SAY:

 

I will carefully choose and guard my words being certain that I do not spread gossip.

 

4. TODAY I WILL GO THE EXTRA MILE:

 

I will find ways to help share the burden of another person.

 

5. TODAY I WILL FORGIVE:

 

I will forgive any hurts or injuries that come my way.

 

6. TODAY I WILL DO SOMETHING NICE FOR SOMEONE, BUT I WILL NOT DO IT SECRETLY:

 

I will reach out anonymously and bless the life of another.

 

7. TODAY I WILL TREAT OTHERS THE WAY I WISH TO BE TREATED:

 

I will practice the golden rule – “Do unto others as I would have them do unto me” – with everyone I encounter.

 

8. TODAY I WILL RAISE THE SPIRITS OF SOMEONE I DISCOURAGED:

 

My smile, my words, my expression of support, can make the difference to someone who is wrestling life.

 

9. TODAY I WILL NUTURE MY BODY:

 

I will eat less; I will eat only healthy foods. I will thank God for my body.

 

10. TODAY I WILL GROW SPIRITUALLUY:

 

I will spend a little more time in prayer today: I will begin reading something spiritual or inspirational today; I will find a quiet place (at some point during the day)!
