Ten Tips to Stay Young

  1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and height. Let the doctor worry about them. That is why you pay him.
  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."
  4. Enjoy the simple things. When the children are young, that is all that you can afford. When they are in college, that is all that you can afford. When you are on retirement, that is all that you can afford!
  5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath. Laugh so much that you can be tracked in the store by the distinctive sound of your laughter.
  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, don't put out a mailbox on the highway of death and just wait in residence for your mail.
  7. Surround yourself with what you love, whether it is 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. Go to the mall, the next county, a foreign country, but not to guilt country.
  10. Tell the people you love that you love them at every opportunity.

And always remember - Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away!
