Okay, if it is true - as suggested in another thread - that I have been "seduced" to post in random threads, I figured I'd start a random thread with a little different twist.
A "random kindness" thread. I will chime in with some thoughts and affirmations about giving and receiving kindnesses that can really make a difference in our world.
Feel free to talk about kindnesses you've given (since you're essentially anonymous here) and especially about those you receive - the special ones, and the little ones that make the world more special.
The preceding is adapted from a reading used by many 12-step groups, but I think it applies here too. This is your space for random thoughts and acts...of kindness.
Just for today I will try to live through this day only and not tackle my whole life problem at once.
Just for today I will be happy. This assumes to be true what Abraham Lincoln said, that: "most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be."
Just for today I will adjust myself to what is and not try to adjust everything to my own desires. I will take each day as it comes and fit myself to it.
Just for today I will be agreeable. I will look as well as I can, dress becomingly, talk low, act courteously, criticise not one bit, not find fault with anything, and not try to improve or regulate anybody but myself.
Just for today I will be unafraid. Especially I will not be afraid to enjoy what is beautiful and to believe that, as I give to the world, so the world will give to me.
