Just For Today – I Will Not Be Angry

5 Principles of Reiki

Just for today, I will not worry

Just for today, I will not be angry

Just for today, I will do my work honestly

Just for today, I will be kind to all living things

Just for today, I will be grateful for my many blessings


Sometimes the most challenging waters to navigate are expectations. When I become disappointed over what actually is, because the reality of an outcome is not what I had hoped for, I find myself in this place of not quite knowing what to do. Especially when I feel I have no control to change the outcome to how I want it to be.


Gaining perspective truly is a gift. To be able to step outside any given situation and change my outlook on it. To change my thoughts from disappointment and anger to how can I take care of myself to step back into a peaceful heart, and see with eyes of love.

Just for today, I will not be angry at what I cannot control. I will bring myself back to peace.

S, ❤️

      Absolutely. It takes Grace to overcome anger. Though it’s a natural feeling but it shouldn’t have total control of our being. There’s nothing like a peaceful heart as you rightly said.

      1. A peaceful heart is such a gift…. ❤️🙏🏻❤️

    I’m angry with someone’s attitude towards me right now but as I came across your post,it ministered instantly to me. I realised that the anger wasn’t necessary anyway. I reached out to the person and apologised- swallowing my pride. I feel at ease now. Thanks for th post.

    1. You’re so welcome!!! I’m so happy you feel at ease now!! That your heart is at peace!! ❤️🙏🏻🌼
