Welcome to my page

I find it a privilege being on this planet at the same time as you, and believe we all are here at this time of humanity for a purpose. I hope you will find it interesting getting into conversation with me and my readers.

HOW TO STAY YOUNG


1.
Throw out nonessential numbers

This includes age, weight and height.
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

Take pleasure in details of your life.
Put value upon simple events in life
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 yourself.
LIVE while you are alive.
7.
Surround yourself with what you love

Whether it's family, pets, 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 shopping, even go abroad,
to a foreign country, but NOT to where the guilt is.
10.
Tell the people you love
that you love them, at every opportunity
