JUST FOR TODAY

Decide to be happy today

To live with what is yours,

Your family, your business,

Your job, your luck.

If you canít have what you like,

Maybe you can like what you have.

Just for today, be kind, cheerful,

Agreeable, responsible, caring, and understanding.

Be your best, dress your best, talk softly,

Look for the bright side of things.

Praise people for what they do and

Donít criticize them for what they cannot do.

If someone does something stupid,

Forgive and forget.

After all, itís just for one day.

Who knows, it might turn out to be a nice day.

What happened, has happened well.

What is happening, is happening well.

What will happen, will happen well.

What of your did and lose?

Why are you crying?

What did you bring along, that which you can lose?

What had you made, for that to be destroyed?

What you took is from here,

What you gave was given here,

What is yours today, will be others tomorrow.

And any others another day.

This change is the rule of the world.
