Caregivers, I do not remember where I found this but I wanted to share this with you.

Just for Today

Just for today…
I will try to live through this day only, and not tackle all my life problems at once…

Just for today…
I will be happy. This assumes to be true what Abraham Lincoln said that “most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be.”

Just for today…
I will adjust myself to what is, and not try to adjust everything to my own desires…

Just for today…
I will try to strengthen my mind. I will study. I will learn something useful. I will not be a mental loafer…

Just for today…
I will exercise my soul in three ways: I will do somebody a good turn, and not get found out; I will do at least two thing I do not want to do, just for exercise, and I will not show anyone that my feelings are hurt…

Just for today…
I will be agreeable. I will look as well as I can, dress becomingly, talk low, act courteously, criticize not one bit, not find fault with anything, and try not to improve anyone but myself;

Just for today…
I will have a program. I may not follow it exactly, but I will have it. I will save myself from hurry and indecision this way;

Just for today…
I will have a quiet half-hour all by myself and relax. Sometime, during this half-hour, I will try to get a better perspective on my life, and I will be unafraid. I will not be afraid to enjoy what is beautiful, and to believe that as I give to the world, so the world will give to me.

–Kenneth L. Holmes

What will you do, Just for today…?

  5. Hi Nurse Suzanne,

    I particularly appreciate your practical reminder to adult caregivers to focus on just what is on their plate for today, not try to address the whole giant issue at hand. That would just trigger overwhelm, for sure.
