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