How to Stay Young...


1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This
includes age, weight and height.
Let the doctors worry about them. That is why
you pay "them!"
2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches
pull you down.
3. 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.
4. Enjoy the simple things.
5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you
gasp for breath.
6. 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.
7. Surround yourself with what you love,
whether it's family, pets,
keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever.
Your home is your refuge.
8. 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.
9 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.
10. 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.

and… Love the God who made you with all your heart and all your soul, every day!
