Simple Thoughts

10 Ideas for a Great Day

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.

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.

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.

Today I will go the extra mile...
I will find ways to help share the burden of another person.

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

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.

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.

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.

Today I will nurture my body...
I will only eat healthy foods. I will thank God for my body.

Today I will grow spiritually...
I will spend more time in prayer today. I will begin reading something spiritual or inspirational; I will find a quiet place and listen to God's voice.
