Twenty-Four Hours a Day
Action for the Day: I will remember: I have the power to choose what my attitude will be toward this day's offerings.
Provided you hold back nothing,
your sense of relief will mount from minute to minute.
The dammed-up emotions of years break out of their confinement,
and miraculously vanish as soon as they are exposed.

Bring the best to life
Be at peace with what has been. That enables you to focus all of your attention and energy into making the best of what can be.
Let go of the need to prove you’re right. Instead, concentrate your thoughts and efforts on being your best.
Get beyond your worries about what may or may not happen, or what other people might think of you. Invest yourself in the real and present actions you can take to make a positive difference.
Your life is too important to waste even a moment or two on things you can’t do anything about. There is so very much you can do instead, and so very many things you can positively influence.
Put all your efforts into what will bear fruit. Give your time and attention to the things that have meaning and value for you.
Feel love instead of fear, joy in the place of worry, and focus on your possibilities instead of resentments. Visualize life at its best, and bring the best to life.
