How to Stay Young

Well, that was the title of the email sent but I prefer to offer you these 10 tips to live by for a long, happy life!

  1. Throw out non-essential numbers: age, weight, height.
  2. Keep only cheerful friends.
  3. Keep learning.
  4. Enjoy the simple things.
  5. Laugh often, long and loud – till you gasp for breath.
  6. The tears happen. Endure, grieve and move on.
  7. Surround yourself with what you love.
  8. Cherish your health.
  9. Don’t take guilt trips.
  10. Tell the people you love that you love them – at every opportunity.

The only person who will be with you right throughout your life is YOU. Love who you are because you are a unique and special manifestation of spirit.

When I asked my 12 year old what the meaning of life was she looked at me like I was crazy: “The meaning of life”, she said. “It’s US! It IS life.”  And indeed it is.

    So true. Just live for each day, cope minute by minute. Tomorrow will have its own worries. Worrying will not change a thing except make us sick, unhappy and older. We are either worrying about what has happened (which we cant change) or would should or could happen which worrying wont change either. Worrying is like sitting in a rocking chair – gives you something to do but gets you nowhere. I try and live by the saying “Treat every day as your last ’cause one day you will be right. If you knew you were going to die tomorrow, who would you see, what would you say or do and why are you waiting”. Appreciate and be thankful for what we have, what we CAN do. The things we dont have and cannot do we are not meant to have or to do, so just accept it. Try and make everyone you come in contact with pleased that you have come into their day. I get great delight in seeing the surprise on the faces of the people I thank for doing the jobs that a lot of us wouldnt like to do, but if they werent done, the world would be worse off. I am talking about the Mall cleaners, the ladies that clean the toilets, the guys that bring in the trolleys – it really makes their day to think they are appreciated. And we all like to be appreciated dont we. Have a great day and take time to smell the roses and be thankful that God has given us another day to love, learn and enjoy. Every day is a gift from God.
