    Stay Young My Friend

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



    HOW TO STAY YOUNG

    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.
    And if you have a friend who makes you laugh,
    Spend lots and lots of time with HIM/HER.



    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 shopping trip, even a trip 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.

    I love you, my special friend.




    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.

    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle..
