I will not strike back, even if I am right.
I will practice peacemaking.
I will be pleasant and presentable
From early morning until late at night.
I will pray for my “enemy.”
I will try to learn something from everyone
Without expecting to learn it all from anyone.
I will have a plan and a program.
I may not follow it exactly,
But I will strive to be a better steward
Of my time and resources today
Than I was yesterday.
I will count my many blessings.
I will revel in this beautiful life
And continue to hope for tomorrow!!
I will show fearless love!!
I will actively choose to do
The bravest, gentlest, most loving thing.
I will do my best at everything.
I will remember to consider
My signature and my legacy,
As well as my capacity for witnessing.
I will lift someone else’s spirits.
I will exhibit optimism
And walk by faith, not by sight.
I will learn something useful
And strive to make a real difference today
in the lives of those I love.
I will do a good deed in secret.
