How To Stay Young

                                                         Everyday is a brand new day,
                                                          everyday is a journey.



You hear that boy laughing?
--you think he's all fun;
But the angels laugh too at the good he has done;
The children laugh loud as they troop to his call,
And the poor man that knows him laughs loudest of all.

You have to forgive me today, but I could not resist posting the following. Once in a while, something stirs inside of me  and I have this need to be funny. Now, I don 't remember where I found the following or actually compiled the list. In fact, when I googled it, many authors have used this post so I have no idea who originally stated it. I received it on Obeingo.com. Enjoy. 


HOW TO STAY YOUNG
1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight, and height. Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay 'them' 

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. 

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. Be ALIVE 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 country; to a foreign country but NOT to where the guilt is.


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.


Have a Happy Sabbath everyone.
