10 Rules For A Happy Day

   

1. TODAY I WILL NOT STRIKE BACK...

if someone is rude, if someone is impatient, if someone is

unkind, I will not respond in a like manner.

 

2. TODAY I WILL ASK GOD TO BLESS MY 'ENEMY'...

If I come across someone who treats me harshly or unfairly,

I will quietly ask God to bless that individual. I understand

"enemy" could be a family member, neighbor, co-worker or stranger.

 

3. TODAY I WILL BE CAREFUL ABOUT WHAT I SAY...

I will carefully choose and guard my words being certain that

I do not spread gossip.

 

4. TODAY I WILL GO THE EXTRA MILE...

I will find ways to help share the burden of another person.

 

5. TODAY I WILL FORGIVE...

I will forgive any hurts or injuries that come my way.

 

6. TODAY I WILL DO SOMETHING NICE FOR SOMEONE, BUT I WILL DO IT IN SECRET...

I will reach out anonymously and bless the life of another.

 

7. TODAY I WILL TREAT OTHERS THE WAY I WISH TO BE TREATED...

I will practice the golden rule. "Do Unto others as I would have

them do unto me"- with EVERYONE I encounter.

 

8. TODAY I WILL RAISE THE SPIRITS OF SOMEONE WHO IS DISCOURAGED...

My smile, my words, my expression of support, can make the

difference to someone who is wrestling with life.

 

9. TODAY I WILL NURTURE MY BODY...

I will eat less... I will eat only healthy foods. I will thank

God for my body.

 

10. TODAY I WILL GROW SPIRITUALLY...

I will spend a little more time in prayer today. I will begin

reading something spiritual or inspirational; I will find a

quiet place (at some point during this day) and listen to God's voice.
