Today I will make a difference.

I Will Make a Difference

Today I will make a difference. I will begin by controlling my thoughts. A person is the product of his thoughts. I want to be happy and hopeful. Therefore, I will have thoughts that are happy and hopeful. I refuse to be victimized by my circumstances. I will not let petty inconveniences such as stoplights, long lines, and traffic jams be my masters. I will avoid negativism and gossip. Optimism will be my companion, and victory will be my hallmark. Today I will make a difference.

I will be grateful for the twenty-four hours that are before me. Time is a precious commodity. I refuse to allow what little time I have to be contaminated by self-pity, anxiety, or boredom. I will face this day with the joy of a child and the courage of a giant. I will drink each minute as though it is my last. When tomorrow comes, today will be gone forever. While it is here, I will use it for loving and giving. Today I will make a difference.

I will not let past failures haunt me. Even though my life is scarred with mistakes, I refuse to rummage through my trash heap of failures. I will admit them. I will correct them. I will press on. Victoriously. No failure is fatal. It’s OK to stumble… . I will get up. It’s OK to fail… . I will rise again. Today I will make a difference.

I will spend time with those I love. My spouse, my children, my family. A man can own the world but be poor for the lack of love. A man can own nothing and yet be wealthy in relationships. Today I will spend at least five minutes with the significant people in my world. Five quality minutes of talking or hugging or thanking or listening. Five undiluted minutes with my mate, children, and friends.

Today I will make a difference.


  1. jigzoPuzzle's BlogWalking + General Review!

    I was supposed to do a general review on any blog I stumbled from the "Next Blog" button... but I was to focused on reading this particular article, that I forgot to make some analysis (layout/page load/meta tag/etc..) for this one.

    I admire your determination to change. Your post really inspired me.

    The past is now nothing more than just another history, some are sweet while the rest might be bitter, but its time to put these books in the shelf..

    The future is yet a mystery, doubts and worries sometimes haunts, smile - because Today you've been given 'Present'...

    Tomorrow will be a better day than today, for today - you have made a difference

    I wish you good luck and good health in your life sir. :-)
