How you percieve your life experience has an impact on everything you do, including age. By staying positive you slow down the process…who knows? maybe even stop it!
1. Throw out unnecessary numbers. This includes age, weight and height. Let the doctors worry about them.
2. Keep only positive friends. The negative ones pull you down.
3. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever, even CB radio. Never let the brain idle. ‘An idle mind is the devil’s workshop.’ And the devil’s family name is Alzheimer’s.
4. Enjoy the simple, silly things.
5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath, its contagious!
6. The tears happen, it’s a process. 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, chocolate, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge.
8. Look after your health: If it is good, preserve it. If it is if it’s not playing ball, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.
9. Don’t go on guilt trips. Take a trip to the theatre, even to the coast; to a foreign country, but NOT to where the guilt is.
10.. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.
AND, REMEMBER ALWAYS:
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
‘Life’s journey is not to arrive at the grave safely, in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally used up and worn out, shouting ‘…man, what a ride!’’ George Carlin
