Stay Young My Friends

Today I’m posting something lite and unrelated

Every so often we all need to clean house and email is no exception

A close friend sent this me

I hope the original person does not mind



 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.
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 trip to the mall, even to the next city,  state,
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.  

Wine  does not make you FAT ….
– it makes you  LEAN …..
(Against  tables, chairs, floors, walls and ugly  people.)
