Improve Your Daily Life


The original writing of the inspirational text, Just for Today has been attributed to Frank Crane who wrote a newspaper column for the Boston Globe in 1921 called, “Dr. Crane Says.”

The article laid out a set of positive suggestions and guidelines for improving our daily life.

Even though many versions of the article have been written since that time, the loving essence of his beautiful ideas still remains.

As we embrace the uplifting thoughts that are written below, and shown in the video above, it will help us maintain a sense of humility, awareness and a deep healing of our spirit.

These concepts are a wonderful way to stay focused on what we can do and change, instead of focusing on what needs to be changed in everyone else.

Just for today, I will live through the next 12 hours and not try to tackle all of life’s problems at once!

Just for today, I will improve my mind, I will learn something useful. I will read something that requires thought and concentration. 

Just for today, I will be agreeable. I will look my best. I will speak softly. I will be courteous and considerate. 

Just for today, I will not find fault with anyone. I will not try to change or improve anyone but myself!

Just for today, I will do a good turn and keep it a secret! If anyone finds out, it won’t count. 

Just for today, I will have a plan. I might not follow it exactly but I will have a plan. I will save myself from two enemies, hurry and indecision. 

Just for today, I will do two things I don’t want to do, just because I need the discipline.

Just for today, I will believe in myself! I will give my best to the world and feel confident that the world will give its best to me!

  1. Cathie, another great post! I had to smile at the “have a plan” affirmation. One of my good friends recently said, “Some people have Xanax. Sloan has plans.” He knows me so well!
    Have a wonderful week! S
