Just for today

Daily mediations

A form of daily mediations is starting each morning off with a just for today statement.
Focus on today and the task of the day, not the lifetime. Here’s some just for todays to start to use every morning.
Just for today I will focus on mindfulness
Just for today I will be happy
Just for today I will adjust myself to what I need
Just for today I will give myself the patience I deserve
Just for today I will share my growth and love with those who show me there’s
Just for today I will take time for me, alone and relax
 Just for today I will shift my perspective to what aligns with my needs
Just for today I will be unafraid.
Just for todays stem from AA 12 step programs. They can be used in many different forms and spaces. If just for todays are fitting for setting your intentions for the day, I encourage you to come up with some of your own and begin to practice daily.
