Just for Today

Sybil F. Partridge created a lovely poem of sorts that many are familiar with called Just for Today. Written in 1916, its beauty and practicality span the nearly 100 years of time very well. The idea of the list Partridge penned is that "I can do things for twelve hours that would appall me if I had to keep them up for a lifetime." The things she suggested for herself pretty much sum up the human question of how to live life happily and thoughtfully.

In our rushed, bullet-pointed world, many don't take the time to read the "long version" of nearly anything. For those who feel they are too pressed for time, here's a version without the grace of the original, but that can be reviewed between emails.

 

Just for Today, 21st Century version:
  • 1. I will act pleasant and happy, knowing that feeling tends to follow action.
  • 2. I will adjust myself to what is, rather than trying to adjust the world to my preferences.
  • 3. I will exercise and think about what I choose to eat and drink.
  • 4. I will read something that takes effort to learn.
  • 5. I will help others, even when I feel in need.
  • 6.  I will dress well, listen carefully, be helpful and limit the time I spend on electronic communication.
  • 7. I will maintain a daily plan and keep my work organized to reduce stress.
  • 8. I will concentrate on this day, this moment and handle things in their correct priority order.
  • 9. I will be unafraid.
  • 10. I will find a quiet spot to pray or meditate, just for today.
