Stay young, my friend

Stay  Young My Friend  

We  all need to read this one over and  over until it  becomes 
part of who we   are!


1.   Try everything twice.
On one woman's  tombstone she said she  wanted this epitaph: 
"Tried  everything twice.  Loved it both  times!"

2  Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you   down.
(Keep  this in mind  if you are one of those  grouches!)

3.  Keep learning: 
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!

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.  LIVE 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. 

11.  Forgive now, those who  made you cry.  You  might not get 
a second chance.

And if  you  don't send this to at least 4 people - who  cares? 
But do  share this with someone.  

Remember!  Lost time can  never be  found.
