10 Rules for Starting New 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 the “enemy” could be a family member, neighbor, co-worker, or a 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 NOT DO IT SECRETLY: 

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 I DISCOURAGED: 

My smile, my words, my expression of support, can make the difference to someone who is wrestling life. 

9. TODAY I WILL NUTURE MY BODY: 

I will eat less; I will eat only healthy foods. I will thank God for my body. 

10. TODAY I WILL GROW SPIRITUALLUY: 

I will spend a little more time in prayer today: I will begin reading something spiritual or inspirational today; I will find a quiet place (at some point during the day)!
