1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and height. Let the doctors worry about them, that’s why you pay them.
2. Keep only cheerful friends. Grouches pull you down.
3. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. ‘An idle mind is the devil’s workshop.’
4. Enjoy the simple things. Worry about nothing. Pray about everything.
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.
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. Be ALIVE while you are alive.
AND ALWAYS REMEMBER :
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, But by the moments that take our breath away.
