Today is a day to focus on humor. It is important to see the ‘light’ ~ as in the light side of things. Nothing unites me with other people more than laughter, and very few things are better for my health and peace of mind. Today I banish all thoughts that make me sad and welcome only those that make me, and everyone around me, smile.
Today is a day to focus on happiness. Happiness for me can only be defined by me. No one can tell me what will make me happy. I know that happiness does not come from the outer world, but is the deep contentment that comes from being at peace with myself. True happiness is not fleeting, but is deeply rooted. Today I will cherish my happiness and share it with everyone I can.
Today is a day to focus on the thoughts, ideas and actions that contribute to my inner peace. I can deal with the winds of change only if I am at peace within myself. Today I banish all thoughts and actions that create disharmony. I am calm, physically and emotionally. Today, I radiate peace.
Today is a day to focus on wisdom. Wisdom is not based on how smart I am, or how smart others think I am. Knowledge comes from the outside. Wisdom comes from within. I can be open to my experiences throughout the day I process them, evaluate them, add them to what I know. Synthesizing all of my experience adds to my wisdom. Today I will be open to this inner knowledge, and try to recognize it in others well.
Today is a day to focus on protection. I will protect my heart and mind from the negative thoughts, feelings, and actions of others. I do not immerse myself in problems. I do not worry about things I cannot control. I do not try to change people or things just because I think they should be different. Instead, I focus on the positive aspects of all people and situations.
Today is a day to focus on justice. Justice, fairness, equity – all of these are aspects of the balance of the universe. I do not need to enforce justice, I do not need to decide what is just. I do not worry about what I think is unfair. I keep myself balanced and deal with everything and everyone around me in a just manner, and allow the energy of the universe to maintain balance.

Of course, if you change your mind (which I am often doing) there is always this …
Morning: Today is a day to focus on success. There may be tangible things I want to achieve, specific tokens of achievement that I aim for. But I will also remember that success is measured in many ways. As I move forward toward my goals, I will not measure my success based on what others judge to be successful, but only by my own inner guide.
Evening: I know that I did my best today to focus on success, and that I am always successful in the ways that are most meaningful to me. Tonight I will rest knowing that the universe and all its energies support my success, in all its forms.
