How to stay young


1. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.

2. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain idle. 'An idle mind is the devil's workshop.' And the devil's name is Alzheimer's.

3. Enjoy the simple things.

4. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.

5. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person, who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. Be ALIVE while you are alive.

6. Surround yourself with what you love , whether it's family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge.

7. Cherish your health: If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

8. Don't take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county; to a foreign country but NOT to where the guilt is.

9. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

Share this with someone. We all need to live life to its fullest each day!!

Worry about nothing, pray about everything!

Can't argue with a single thought. Thanks for the reminder, we all need jogged now and then. It is so easy to think that the sun will rise for us each day so we can do that tomorrow. Not always so.
