How To Stay Young

Try everything twice 
On one woman’s tombstone she said she wanted this epitaph: “Tried everything twice. Loved it both times!”

.
.
.

Keep only cheerful friends 
The grouches pull you down. (Keep this in mind if you are one of those grouches!)

.
.
.

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

.
.
.

Enjoy the simple things 
A walk in the park, watching the tide roll in, eating ice cream, patting your pet ……..

.
.
.

Laugh often, long and loud 
Laugh until you gasp for breath. And if you have a friend who makes you laugh, spend lots and lots of time with him/her.

.

Tears happen: Endure, grieve, and move on

The only person who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. Live while you are alive.

.
.
.

Surround yourself with what you love 
Whether it’s family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever…… Your home is your refuge.

.
.
.

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.

.
.
.
.

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.

.
.
.


Tell the people you love that you love them at every opportunity 

.
.
.

Forgive now those who made you cry 
You might not get 
a second chance.

.
.
.

Remember:
Lost time can never be found. 
Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.
