How to stay young

Happy new year to all of you.

'myspace

Here are some guaranteed methods to stay young.Just make these your resolutions this year--and I promise you, that if you sincerely follow them, you will definitely feel younger in December 2007.Try it----and tell me.

1. Try everything twice. On Madams tombstone (of Whelan's and Madam) 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 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 time.

  2. I agree with all of these, I definitely agree with 'keep learning'. I've never understood people who have no interest in reading or exploring or learning the next step.
    And guilt? I have taught my girls that guilt teaches us not to do what ever it is we did again. Drop the guilt, keep the lesson and move on.

    No.7 :OK..but don't let the things you love surround You!.. lest you become weighed down and unable to move...
